EDWARDS, Colorado “-Mousike Magazine invites the public to celebrate the magazine’s official re-launch party at Woody’s Bar and Grill in Riverwalk in Edwards, Colorado on Thursday beginning at 8:30 p.m.

The release party will include an all-star cast of musicians.

“There will be some very special guests showing up leading to some great musical collaborations,” said Dave Perron, lead singer for the house-band Laughing Bones. “I heard there might even be a big blue monster there.”

The brainchild of Michael “Jersey” Gerity and named for the Greek word that means any art presided over by the muses ” especially music, Mousike is coming back from a 19-month hiatus.

“If there’s anything we learned from the first go around, it’s that there’s a definite need for this magazine. Here in Colorado we are a state of mind in a state of music,” Gerity said.

He and the rest of the staff of Mousike Magazine can hardly wait for Thursday as it will be great to celebrate the type of scene and people they’re working so hard to put out this type of publication for.

“Anytime you can combine a bar like Woody’s, a band like Laughing Bones and some of the best music fans around into a special event, you capture the essence of everything we’re trying to accomplish with this magazine. Thursday will be something special for all of us,” said Todd Altschuler of Mousike.

Mousike Magazine is a bi-monthly publication that aims to carve a niche by being the only musical magazine that concentrates on Colorado’s mountain towns. Features include “gonzo” journalism, High Country band and venue coverage, an extensive photo section and a comprehensive state-wide concert calendar. Mousike is the only music magazine distributed in the mountains and can be found in a variety of music venues, coffee shops, bookstores, nightclubs, restaurants and literary stands in Colorado mountain towns.
