Dave Papuga from the Grateful Web had the pleasure of interviewing Euforquestra's Mike Tallman as a preview to their upcoming show at the Fox Theater in Boulder on October 12th; Euforquestra is a genre-spanning force on the local music scene, as well as a force on the national touring scene...

For once, you can judge a book by its cover: Truth and Salvage Co. is exactly what the name suggests. A six-member Americana country-rock band, Truth and Salvage was formed (salvaged, if you will) in 2005 from the remains of two LA-based bands.

Dan Kurtz gave us a couple of minutes of his time before launching of his final tour with The New Deal (TND).  Sentimental and comical, Dan shared with us his favorite venues, music video directors, and moments with The New Deal as well as his thoughts on sexuality in music and the story of how this trio first met.
