On Wednesday, May 14th we were notified by the National Park Service that there is evidence of reportedly high levels of arsenic in the soil around Fort Reno requiring closure of the park and further testing. At the moment nothing is confirmed, only reported - we don t even know if the stage area is affected - but the park is currently closed. The Park Service, EPA, and others are looking into the situation and keeping us posted. Check back here where we ll share updates and details as they come in.
The news hits just as we were beginning to ask for your help in raising the funds we need for this year s sound system and stage maintenance. We may be looking for a new home or maybe we won t need to - either way we still need your help.
We know we re asking you to donate for concerts that might not happen this year. Think of it as a donation for all the rock of years gone by. We stay dedicated to bringing the music to the people and you can be sure all donations will go to that cause - be it at Fort Reno, some new venue, or something wholly new.
new summer of shows at fort reno is gonna be arsenic-rific.
