Time to boogie again at first anniversary barn dance

Something Underground to headline event

By Sandy Barnes

The rustic barn at Alderfer/Three Sisters Park is coming alive once more with music and dance on Saturday evening for the first anniversary of Boogie at the Barn.
Denver-based group Something Underground will headline the event, playing its blend of rock, reggae, folk and pop from 7 to 10 p.m. Rough Mix, a collaboration of Evergreen musicians, will open the dance, which begins at 5:30 p.m.
Because of the success of previous dances at the 100-year-old Alderfer ranch barn, organizers John Erlandson and Pandora Reagan have decided to continue with them this fall season. More than 400 people attended each of the three dances held last year.
The event is a fund-raiser for the barn renovation, and also will benefit Crutches for Africa, a local nonprofit organization that delivers surplus crutches and mobility devices to needy people in Africa. Attendees are encouraged to bring lightly used crutches and canes to the event for donations to Crutches for Africa.
Those who come to the dance will have the opportunity to get a close look at the barn, which is open to the public on a limited basis only. The barn is managed by the Evergreen Park and Recreation District and has undergone renovations, which are still in progress.
Tickets are $8 in advance and are available at the Buchanan and Wulf recreation centers and at area coffee shops, including the Muddy Buck, Everbean and Java Groove.
Barbecue, beer and wine will be available for purchase at the event.
Parking space is limited at the barn on Buffalo Park Road, and carpooling is encouraged.
Boogie at the Barn is sponsored by the Evergreen Park and Recreation District, Colorado Serenity, Adams Plumbing and Heating, Intero Real Estate, Chow Down, Tom Carby Insurance Agency, Bergen Park Paint & Decorating, Mark and Laurie Teter, and Warren and Betsy Rose.
