Single File

The full-length debut of Colorado's Single File comes out April 7. After that, they go on tour with Alkaline Trio and Anberlin and once again returning to the Vans Warped Tour.

KTCL in Denver gave them a boost by playing "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" on the air, and the band's new single "Girlfriends" will be playing on Denver radio beginning in March before it goes out to the rest of the country.

The Forecast

This weekend, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra is playing along with "The Wizard of Oz." The classic movie will play on big screens, with the orchestra playing the soundtrack! Live! What fun. Friday, 1/9, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, 1/10, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, 1/13, it's the CSO's free annual Martin Luther King Jr. tribute concert. Tickets required. Pick them up free from the central downtown library or the Blair-Caldwell branch. 7:30 p.m.

Also, beginning 1/13, you can see Yang Fudong’s 6-minute video "City Light" at MCA Denver. The contemporary art museum is hosting a public reception that Friday, 1/16, 6-10 p.m. Yang was born in Beijing but now lives in Shanghai. "City Light" (2000) looks at an office worker and his doppelganger, or perhaps you could view the doppelganger as his alter ego or his private self. The exhibition runs until May 10.

Musical chairs

The Colorado Symphony Orchestra is getting a new president and CEO beginning March 9. The CSO said today that James W. Palermo, who served 14 seasons as the artistic and general director of the Grant Park Music Festival in Chicago, has accepted the appointment. Palermo comes on board as CSO looks for a new music director to replace Jeffrey Kahane, who said in July he would leave after the 2009-'10 season following a bout with hypertension. Also in July, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra announced it was naming then- CSO Pres/CEO Doug Adams as its new president. Kevin Duncan has been serving as interim pres/CEO for the CSO.

Speaking of management changes, Chipotle Mexican Grill founder and CEO Steve Ells is going to be sharing his CEO role with Monty Moran, promoted from COO and President. The fast-casual chain, known for hefty burritos, is getting its first chief marketing officer, Mark Crumpacker, who's from the consulting firm that has been doing branding/creative work for them since the beginning. Bill Niman (Niman Ranch founder) was named Sustainable Agriculture Adviser, which seems like a move aimed at giving some cred and more attention to Chipotle's efforts to use more local foods, free-range meat, etc. Oh, and Chipotle wants to expand into Europe this year. London!
