When Polytoxic and the Denver Horns come together every year to perform the Last Waltz Revisited, they remind us of the difference between going to a show and going to a SHOW.  Everything was in place- a food drive to support a local charity, a brilliant parade of local talent, non-stop...

The front room of the Larimer Lounge filled quickly as Guards and Deer Tick finished sound checking on Thursday night. Shoulder to shoulder, audience members got friendly with their neighbors waiting for the doors to the back (stage) room to open. The show was sold out and fans showed up on time to...

There were four standards for the bands on the bill at The Fox Theater in Boulder on Monday night: each band must have at least one member with an afro (or big hair, at least), each band must hail from somewhere on the western seaboard, each band must maintain a packed house and each band must rip...

Gill Landry performed the opening act at Hi-Dive on South Broadway in Denver, CO on October 17.  Despite Landry’s claims to fame, as a former busker from New Orleans, LA and a member of the popular Old Crow Medicine Show, it is likely that you are unfamiliar with this singer-songwriter’s name...

Hello old friend. It has been a while since we have seen each other and I feel a little awkward. Will you still accept me? I know I have changed since we have seen each other. You have stayed true to whom you were. Has it been a year? I am coupling my anxiety about your acceptance with serious...

On October 30, I was one of the lucky ones to be in a sold out Sportpaleis for the concert of Lenny Kravitz. I don’t think he needs an introduction, right? This time, he visited Belgium with his Black and White Tour. The support act that night was Raphael Saadiq, an American singer, songwriter, and...
