Venuewatch: Fox Boulder

The bad news: Boulder's Fox Theatre is closing.

The good news: it's only going to be shut for the summer, as it rebuilds itself. But not too much:

As many of the University of Colorado students vacate Boulder during the summer, this time offers the best opportunity to replace the aging roof, said Emily Kessler, marketing assistant for the Fox and the Boulder Theater.

“It's not a remodel. The Fox isn't going to be a new venue,” Kessler said. “Our roof just leaks when it rains. It's just really old and the summer time is a little bit slower and CU is gone.”
At the moment, the planned reopening is August 19th with Sharon Von Etten - who is an artist who demands a new roof, don't you think?
