Blitzen Trapper's Blitz on Boulder

Overall, the general tide in Indie rock pulls heavily towards the twinkley.  Lots of synth, lots of electronics, lots of over-dubbing, lots of special effects, and less dirty guitar with each passing year.  Not that I would attempt to deny the appeal that this trend has – I’ve grown fond of pretty much the whole spectrum over the past decade – but what this trend conspicuously lacks is grit.  Grit and twinkle just don’t go that well together.

Cornmeal Brings Heat to Fire Benefit After-party

There was a buzz in the air of Boulder Colorado, October 9, 2010.  On the cool fall Saturday night, people were celebrating life, friendship, and the end of a very destructive fire that burned outside of Boulder early last month. Lasting nearly a week, the Boulder Fourmile Canyon fire was the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history; destroying 169 homes, and scorching nearly 8000 acres of land.

Langhorne Slim Opens Voice, Heart with Soulful Blend of Music & Experiential Lyrics

There’s something homey feeling about the idea of a man sitting out on his porch as the sun sets, plucking away at his guitar as he moves forward and back in a rocking chair.

As I was walking on the hill in Boulder to get some Chinese food and a beer before the show, I passed by a very animated and excited Jeff Austin (mandolin player from Yonder Mountain String Band) talking to a friend. It was interesting because he was putting the same energy into the conversation that he usually puts into his live performances.

Toots & the Maytals | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO

It was a nice Mother’s day in Boulder, CO, and is there a better way to spend the evening than with the Toots & the Maytals at the Fox Theatre? There seemed to be a good Rasta vibe permeating through the Fox tonight. The bartenders were all smiles as usual, including long time bar tender Spotty, who is the best bartender in the city, and his happy to serve lifestyle was extra vibrant as well.

Bobby Long Gives Revival to Dull Night at the Fox

When small coffee house performances come to memory, a picture develops within the mind’s a eye that often seems to call up images of a simple set with acoustic guitar, wooden bar stools, a soft pool of light, and the gentle murmuring of an audience.

"Are you ready to get Shpongled?"

This is the quote that DJ Simon Posford (Shpongle) asked the crowd as he prepared to blow the minds of the audience. We definitely got Shpongled.
