BoomBox Announces March Colorado Tour

Featuring Producer Russ Randolph and Vocalist/Guitarist Zion Rock Godchaux, BoomBox draws their inspiration from their hometown roots in Muscle Shoals, AL – an area known for inspiring the worlds most legendary recordings of the 60’s, 70’s 80’s and into the present. The powerhouse duo draws their inspiration from their hometown roots and is recognized for infusing elements of Motown, Folk, and Rock into an electronic music blender with heavy bass undertones and ethereal vocals for a dance party vibe that has fans coming out in drones.

Locally, the band boasts two sold out shows in Denver last November, as part of their annual urban electronic festival RE:Convergence, which took place at Cervantes.

Trey Anastasio | Jefferson Theater | Charlottesville, VA | 2/8/10

I’ve always secretly felt badly for people with birthdays that fell during the deep winter.  Mine’s in late August.. Pretty much everywhere I’ve ever lived or visited, I’ve found August to be lush, warm, and full of nature’s bounty.  Birthday gatherings for me were pretty much always outside, and in nature.

Home Cookin' with the Motet

When I got the news that I could write a review for the Motet’s Best of their Halloween shows at my favorite indoor venue in the world, I jumped at the opportunity. Not only was it just their “best of” show, but it was the 7th Anniversary Grand Re-Opening Celebration for the venue that has demonstrated its appeal to the fans of music in many ways.

Play Live Dead & The Dead Guise Jam Out At Ashkenaz

On a cool Saturday night my buddy Dean and I drove down to the Ashkenaz on San Pablo Ave. to catch two outstanding Grateful Dead cover bands I have seen quite frequently in the Bay Area over the last year, The Dead Guise and Play Live Dead (formerly known as Live Dead.) Dean had never been to a show at Ashkenaz, nor had he seen either band, so I was quite excited to introduce him to this incredible live music, especially because he was a big fan of The Dead like myself.
