Xavier Rudd | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO | 11/11/12 | Review

This November 11, Boulder, Colorado’s Fox Theater hosted Xavier Rudd, one of Australia’s most iconic voices, for the last American stop along his Spirit Bird Tour. Behind his custom drum set equipped with two didgeridoos, Xavier Rudd appeared like a mythic creature from an aborigine creation story. Rudd embodied the totem spirit vision as half-man and ecstatic bird with colossal tusks.

Infamous Stringdusters | Cervantes | 11/10/2012 | Review

One of the more humorous developing attitudes of newer bluegrass acts is that they don’t like applying the label “bluegrass”. Though their instrumentation, song selection, and style all point to an existing form. The trend seems to be that up-and-comings feel marginalized by being cornered into accepting the label. In certain ways I understand this fear. Donning the title of a “bluegrass” band makes its musicians pressured into accepting a certain catalogue of songs and a limiting context in which they can expand and improvise their instrumentals.

Grateful Dead Limited Edition Vinyl At Record Store Day

Normally, we'd say it's safer to stay at home on Black Friday.

Sourced from the original reels of 1/4" tape, WINTERLAND 5/30/71 was mastered by Jeffrey Norman, the vinyl lacquers were cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and then pressed at RTI.
