Thursday was a tough night for a jam band to play a show on the Front Range in Colorado. The String Cheese Incident were playing the first of a three night run at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield and no doubt sucked up a lot of the potential concert-going hippie crowd.

Mash-up master Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, didn’t give a concert last night at the Ogden Theater in Denver, he threw a party. Complete with balloons, confetti, a machine that blew streams of toilet paper through the air, and his own intricate brand of generations of multi-genre beats, hooks and lyrics blended together, he served up dance party cocktails to an eager, thirsty crowd.

Jeff Austin is a shoo-in for the most animated mandolin player of the year award. There’s no doubt he’d win, if and when such an award came to be.

A Los Angeles gangster rapper turned Hollywood icon. Ice Cube (born O’Shea Jackson) -- founding member of N.W.A.—“the world’s most dangerous group,” stopped in Colorado for the second night of his 2011 cross-country tour.

In the half-century between his earliest recordings in the 1950s and his death in 2004, Ray Charles ascended to icon status by leaving his mark on virtually every form of American popular music that emerged in the latter half of the 20th century. Nowhere was this more evident than in his live performances, where one was likely to hear shades of blues, soul, R&B, jazz, gospel, country, and more in a single evening — indeed, sometimes in a single song. To put it simply, the Right Reverend did it all.

 
The ferocious vocal tornado Kristy Lee is back! After an electrifying close to 2010, Kristy Lee is excited to announce she will be performing on the Main Stage of this year’s Hangout Music Festival before Widespread Panic and at the opening night VIP party.
 

Electronic music duo BoomBox dropped the bomb dance party on a sold out crowd at the Fox Theater on Friday night. This was one stop in an eight show assault the group led through Colorado this past week. Fans turned out ready to get their groove on, many in their finest disco garb, all surely wearing their dancing shoes.
