Virgin Music Festival: Day 2 Recap
It"s that time of year again. As spring settles in (albeit slowly), the summer music festival season in Denver is hard on its heels. We"ll be giving you a heads-up about some of these events as they approach-and we"ll start with the annual Westword Music Showcase, to be held June 22, 2013.
Orchid and Hound is a pop duo consisting of John Constantine and Lawrence Alarcon they are a pop duo with a classical influence. The duo formed their band last summer and had their first gig last September. They are very excited to be performing at the festival wristbands so quickly after getting together to perform. When asked what was the craziest thing to happen to them so far while performing the answer was a humorous one.
It Might Get Loud: PG for mild thematic elements, brief language and smoking. 97 mins. Guitar soloists and trendsetters Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White sit down together to discuss their style, how they crafted it, to teach and to talk all things guitar.
SET THE DATE: The date of your event will depend on a couple of things. If it is a birthday or anniversary event wristbands then you are controlled by the date. If it is just a party the date may be controlled by the locations availability. If the event is at your home then you are in control. Pick what ever date you want. I have even gone as far as check with some guests a couple weeks in advance to make sure they are available on a certain date. I really like success!
WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE YOUR EVENT? Location is usually the area of the least control. Some locations require a reservation a year in advance, so you can not wait until the last minute. Researching locations 18 - 24 months in advance may help relieve a lot of stress early on. I you are having the party at your house then you just need sport wristbands to deal with the family. So weigh your odds early on!

People are studying their family trees and age-old stories in the hope of reconnecting with long-lost relatives. Zhang Yi reports from Xiamen, Fujian.
On June 9, Huang Ching-hsiung woke at about 3 am in his hotel bed in Xiamen, Fujian province. He was too excited to sleep. At daybreak, he was one of a group of 11 members of his family that set out to visit Pujin, a village two hours from downtown Xiamen by road.
The settlement has the same name as Huang"s home village in Lugang town, Changhua, Taiwan, and most of the residents are named Huang.
The Huangs on Taiwan are direct descendents of settlers who arrived on the island centuries ago. Several batches of Fujian residents moved to Taiwan during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in the hope of making their fortunes, and those who were members of the same family banded together as they fought to make new lives. They named the places they settled after their hometowns and retained the customs they had brought from the mainland.
Roughly 80 percent of Taiwan residents share blood ties with people from Fujian. About 110 settlements on either side of the Taiwan Straits that share the same village and family names have established official exchange programs, according to the Fujian-Taiwan Compatriots" Association.
In the 1980s, the descendants of those early settlers started visiting the mainland to discover their roots, inspired by family histories passed down through generations.
"Place your feet on the land our ancestors came from," Huang"s father told him, shortly before he died 12 years ago.
