Boulder Theater

The Shpongletron Experience @ Boulder Theater

Spring is in full swing, and the music scene is bursting with options. There are so many tour announcements that resurface like the tulips in one’s garden, so there must be a way to stand out amongst all of the others. I am by no mean saying that world famous British DJ Simon Posford does not stand out on his own with his signature feathered cap and suspenders. But, with the addition of an 18 ft.

Dark Star Orchestra | Boulder Theater | 4/16/11

The beauty of the Grateful Dead legacy extends far past the demise of the original line-up that sadly ended with the death of Jerry Garcia in 1995. The Grateful Dead created a dedicated community, or rather a counterculture, based on music and family values that have since refused to give up and let go.

Beats Antique | Boulder Theater | 4/8/2011 | Review

Attending a live show by Beats Antique takes the listener on a multifaceted ride through world beat instrumentation melded with bass heavy electronica and impressively choreographed dance routines.

Stanley Clarke & Victor Wooten | Boulder Theater

It was a clash of the bass guitar titans Saturday night at the Boulder Theater. A double bill of the Victor Wooten Band and the Stanley Clarke Band was a jazz extravaganza showcasing two generations of innovative bass masters together under one roof.

Martin Sexton & Nellie McKay on Valentine's Day

eTown presented another amazing show at the Boulder Theater on Valentine’s day, saving me from the alternative, a romantic home cooked meal (aka cabbage and salmon quiche- my boyfriends favorite) Relieved and excited, I rolled into the theater around 7 and could hear Martin Sexton warming the crowed up already.

Amos Lee @ The Boulder Theater | 2/5/11 | Review

Boulder sure loves them some Amos Lee. The singer/songwriter from Philadelphia turned up the heat for Saturday’s sold out audience at the Boulder Theater. Lee’s sweet blend of Folk and R&B, spanning four studio albums, fully satiated his devout Colorado audience.

Prog Reduced to Roots: The Decemberists Let the Yoke Fall from Their Shoulders

Just by the looks of the stage before any performers stepped foot on it, it was obvious that the evening’s music would be substantial. In addition to the usual drum set, keyboard station, guitar stands, and microphones, there was also an accordion, an upright bass lying on its side, lone floor toms set up next to three of the stations, a guitar rack complete with acoustic and electric axes, mandolin, lute, dobro and banjo, and random shakers sprawled about.

Keller Williams & Marc Broussard | eTown

I had never attended a live eTown radio show before, and didn’t know whether to expect a “Prairie Home Companion” type experience or a full-blown concert. What I found was the best of both worlds; insightful interviews intermixed with live music and an enthusiastic crowed.
