The Show Ponies Give Bluegrass A Run For the Money

There’s California sunshine in the music of Los Angeles indie Americana band The Show Ponies, even a hint of that West Coast brand of optimism.

The Sweet Lowdown's Progressive Canadian Roots Music

There's something about living on the edge of the Western world that tends to encourage far-reaching perspectives. Canadian roots trio The Sweet Lowdown certainly understand this.

Grateful Web Guest Blog | The Backyard Committee

Colorado’s Best Take Off in the Dance Party Time Machine

As we feel the weather changing around us, and we realize that Thanksgiving is in the air, we also must celebrate a few other traditions, like revisiting the Last Waltz, or listening to Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant” on Thanksgiving Day.

In the spirit of the Last Waltz, we have our own all-star jam called the Dance Party Time Machine.

The Wild Feathers | Brighton Music Hall

For the uninitiated, The Wild Feathers may be the purest, most energetic descendants of the musical legacy of The Band that are out on the club circuit today. Their eponymous debut album came out a little over a year ago, and they have been touring relentlessly since that time. Their live shows are, simply put, whiskey-soaked, rafter-rattling good times.
