INTERVIEW / PHOTOS: Dispatch @ 1ST Bank Center, Denver 9/28/12 [LMB CO]

Mike Franklin — “Independent music’s biggest rock Band Dispatch just kicked off their Amplifying Education Back-to-School Alternative Break Tour at the 1ST Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado on September 28th. Band members, Chad Stokes, Brad Corrigan, and Pete Francis finally brought the good vibes back uniting Dispatch and giving rise to their first album in 10 years Circles Around the Sun. After collecting over 10,000 Books and raising over $250,000 last year the band has contributed immensely to local literacy programs to keep kids from ‘falling through the cracks,’ as Brad stated in a recent interview. After playing free shows for file sharing activists to supporting Napster’s struggle in congress in 2001 the band has contributed to many powerful acts of social justice.”
