Save the Double D

Aren’t diamonds supposed to last forever?

So you had a great time at the Dirty Dozen Brass Band? How about the Wailers? Or G. Love?

If you missed any of these rockin’ shows this summer at the Double Double Diamond, then you are kicking yourself, especially since they are in danger of never returning to Aspen.

You see, the Double Diamond is falling prey to the greed of a landlord-controlled town. Bob Bowden and Jimmy Hunting are evicting our favorite and only big-venue, bootie-shakin’, don’t-stop-till-you-drop Double Diamond.

Don’t let the Double Diamond be another casualty on the list of places we miss and should have fought for.

We, as a community, owe the Double Diamond for 12 years of rockin’ memories. It’s a part of each and every one of our lives here in Aspen, and if we don’t act now, an era is going to die before our very eyes.

Find your voice, reach into your pockets, act now to help the Double Diamond preserve Aspen’s wildlife.
