The year is 2005. Bob Weir and RatDog are playing the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado.  I was born in 1969.  The Grateful Dead were four years old and gathering steam for their unexpected journey through time that would bring them 40 years into the future. They would become...

The Bad Plus at the Boulder Theater Halloween night was a truly fun event. Taking the stage at 9:30pm the three piece Jazz band made up of Reid Anderson on bass, Ethan Iverson on Piano, and David King on drums settled on the stage in the glow of a warm red light. They opened up with the theme from...

I lucked out on this one. I showed up at Pinky's this past Wednesday to hang out with my new friends Iconocaust. Shred had given me a call and said that their new CD was finished and he had a signed copy for me to pick up at their show. Definitely pick up "The Natural Evolution of Metal" from there...

For years Denver has been overlooked as a source for new music. Everyone knows about L.A, Seattle and New York but I guess the main stream media in this country figures Denver is backwater country town and if someone happens to come out of this area playing metal, rock, or rap it was just a fluke....

The angle SCI had on the material was exquisite. They played these great songs from the inside out. The JGB, however, seemed all surface to me. The False Jerry kind of weirded me out. It seemed like more gloss and showmanship than anything else. They're a professional outfit, of course, but w/o...

The first thing I see as I enter the top of Red Rocks is the full moon just barely sitting on the Colorado horizon. It's got that dusky, orange glow and an uncanny resemblance of, well, dare I say, a Georgia peach. It sat center-stage and shined like a beacon getting brighter and brighter the...

Is there a better place to 'see music' than Red Rocks? With it's surreal, natural appeal and rock history ridden presence, it is no wonder why Trey Anastasio still gets excited to play Colorado's favorite venue. "I've said before, but I'll say it again," Anastasio readmits on Saturday night, "this...

On the 10th trip around the sun since Jerry Garcia's death, what more can be said about the man? The good news is that people ARE still saying things about the big guy. The dissection of a Dead show and talk about all the amazing intricacies of Jerry's playing still goes on. There is...

Over the years I have always thought of Mark Knopfler as one of my favorite guitar players and I always regretted missing him play live. Last night I figured out why. He was awesome. I was not quite sure what to expect – which was kind of nice for a change. Too many times I know what I am in for...
