Widespread smoke is coming from at least two wildfires. The Cache Creek Fire, southwest of Rifle, is at 2,544 acres and 40% contained.  The Cabin Lake Fire, 5 miles from Buford, is at 3,700 acres and 35 percent contained. But, wind, heat and dry fuels have hampered containment efforts. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh has this update.

In an open field in Longmont, Colorado, about a dozen people crouched in the tall grass, moving slowly and deliberately through mud that squelched underfoot. Some carried huge, serrated knives called hori-hori, a Japanese tool made specifically for gutting weeds. Others wielded gardening shears, saws or chemical sprays as their weapons of choice.

Leah Concialdi, Frank Roddy and Casey Hrdlicka comprise only 30% of their band Atomga. But they did a good job introducing the KDNK audience to their band's sound. Atomga Beer from Brazil, the mathematics of polyrhythms and snippets of Fela Kuti and Bixiga from Sao Paulo complete this audio snapshot of the Denver Afrobeat band which headlined KDNK's Hoot.

El Javi has found a home away from home in the Roaring Fork Valley. Here he speaks about his art before his appearance at KDNK's Hoot.
