Before the New Year, well known power group, Sez Who returned to the Albuquerque stage at the Jazzbah, one of three premier jazz clubs in the city. Their sizzling sound is an eclectic mix of genres that are loosely labeled jazz, often turning that broad label on its head as they ooze out tunes....

Canadian rock band Hey Rosetta!'s third studio album, Seeds continues the vibe the group started back in 2005. They certainly take a leap forward in their production, however, as the sounds found on this album are far more multi-layered than their previous material. Take the opening track, "Seeds...

Zach Deputy brought his creatively branded “island infused, drum ‘n’ bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul” to the Fox Theatre this week.  Part gospel, because he is a disciple in the way of the one-man-band.  Part ninja, because his music attacks you with dizzying techniques.  Part soul, because...

This past Saturday at The Walnut Room I experienced The Yawpers.  I purposefully say, “experienced,” because that is happens when you see The Yawpers, you gain a meaningful experience.  Well, maybe not meaningful, but definitely a great time where you may find yourself getting sucked into...

Los Lobos played an intimate acoustic performance on Friday night at the Boulder Theater. The Mexican-American rock and roll band who are probably best known for their work on the “La Bamba” soundtrack brought the house down, but had a bit of a hard time keeping the show fully acoustic. The theater...

Many different bands could be sited as having created the Boulder music sound. Since the 1970s and even before, Boulder has been an outlet for “freaks” everywhere to unite and be free in artistic creation and expression. Along with having a large population of young people from University of...

The Drive-By Truckers don’t play mediocre live shows. It’s pretty much a guarantee that any given audience in any given city is set to have their collective mind blown as they sit in a jam-packed theater, watching the techs set up the mics and guitars and set out the signature bottles of Jack...

Embrace is the term that best summarizes the exchange between Bonobo and his audience, a welcoming and adoption of the noise that surrounds listeners. Simon Green, a UK native, is a pioneer and mastermind of the downtempo/trip hop sound that is Bonobo. Usually accompanied with a live band, Green...
