moe at the mishawaka

Close your eyes and imagine that your best friends bought a house in the mountains with a killer backyard on the banks of a rambling river. Now imagine that they decided to build a pint-sized log stage in that yard, complete with lights and sound. Last but not least, they added a bar and a place to get grub. Now, all summer long, they’re inviting your favorite bands to come, play, and drink beers in this backyard oasis.

Sounds like an amazing dream, right? Well in the Poudre Canyon just north of Fort Collins, Colo., this dream is reality.

We’ve lived in Northern Colorado for nearly nine years now (holy cow!) and although we’ve enjoyed music in many iconic venues, from Red Rocks to the Filmore, we had never ventured up the road to visit Mishawaka Amphitheater. Although I’d heard tales of this awesome venue from friends, there was never a time or artist that worked for us. Until a few weeks ago.

My partner, Eric, and I have followed moe. for almost two decades–from the Southeastern U.S. to the Caribbean and back again. So we were stoked to learn that they were planning a short tour in Colorado in early June, and what do ya know? One of the shows would be at the Mish.

Built way back in 1916 by musician and motorcycle-traveling adventurer Walter S. Thompson, the Mish was initially a dance hall. Over the decades it has changed hands and been other things, like a resort and restaurant.

The Mishawaka as you see it today was reinvigorated in 2010 by Dani Grant and her husband Matt Hoeven, an entrepreneurial music lover from Fort Collins who remains focused on maintaining the authenticity and character of the venue and surrounding lands that have so enthralled audiences and performers.

And enthralling it is.

The day of the show we made our way to a central location in Fort Collins to meet up with other moe.rons headed to the show. To reduce traffic in the delicate canyon, and ensure save travels for those imbibing at the show, the Mish offers shuttle rides to and from the venue for a nominal fee.  The bus ride was fun, with lots of chatting between passengers and a feeling like we were all going to summer camp.

Once we arrived it was amazing to see how intimate the Mish truly is. Perched on the side of the road, as close to the river as you can get without getting wet, the amphitheater legally holds only 752 people. There are no seats, although you’re allowed to bring camping chairs if you set them up at the back. Otherwise, it’s first come, first served.

There are two bars and a full-service restaurant available to show-goers as well, and prices are very reasonable. Those who shell out for VIP tickets are allowed to view the performance from one of two elevated decks that provide a clear shot of the stage and a place to sit. Recycling bins and restrooms facilities (port-o-potties) are plentiful.

The show started as soon as night fell, and watching the pretty lights bounce off the trees and canyon walls was beyond incredible. moe. certainly rose to the occasion and gave a great show under the stars, mixing old favorites with new tracks from their just-released album.

Very special thanks to Caitlin, Philip, Josh, and Julie for facilitating our first visit to the Mish.
