Westword's Description

In November 1996, Jay Bianchi and his two brothers opened the original Quixote's True Blue at 9150 East Colfax in Aurora, as a place where Deadheads and kindred spirits could gather after Jerry Garcia's passing. Bianchi says he figured the venue might last five years and worried that his regulars would get older, retire, have kids and not be able to go out as much. But what actually happened was that the audience kept getting younger.While the venue has moved a few times since then, including stints in Five Points, downtown, and its current location in Capitol Hill, the vibe has essentially stayed consistent, with a jam- and Dead-centric lineup of both local and national groups.

    This place is overrated as it gets. Quixotes is a popularity contest for hippies. The longer your dreads the cooler you are. A bunch of broke hippies trying to suck up to the owners for a free drink. I love the Dead but man Does Quixotes give them a bad name.

    Big Paddy is Celtic rock with some funky grooves. Passionate vocals and dazzling instrumental work make this Colorado act a must-see!
