About two years ago, I heard my first BIG Something song. It was an unforgettable moment when the song “Undertow” played on the radio station “Jam On,” on Sirius XM. I remember thinking they were going to become something big. From then on, my obsession with this unique funk, rock, jam group grew tremendously.
Aqueous has been taking the live music space by storm over the last year.

Colorado based Americana Quintet The Drunken Hearts hosted their “Love & Thirst” album release party on a Thursday night at the Bluebird Theater in Denver. A far cry from the soulless popular music seeding festivals and stadiums, The Drunken Hearts played an intimate and emotional set.
The Drunken Hearts will headline Denver's Bluebird Theater on June 30th for their hometown release of Love & Thirst, the band's latest studio effort. The album, which was over a year in the making, highlights the tremendous growth of a band that has experienced big love and heavy loss, and the release show is not to be missed. They will be joined by locals Mama Magnolia and Cold River City to open the show.
Playful yet angsty, soulful but light; the dual essence of California’s golden coast filled an almost sold out Bluebird Theater Monday night.

This show was the icing on the cake of a super busy music weekend in the Mile High City. The Bluebird Theater played host to an ultra-talented bill. It was a cold and snowy night in Denver, but people still came out on a Sunday night to see one of the most talented bands in Colorado cover Ween’s famous Chocolate and Cheese album.
“It’s all happening.” That was Penny Lane’s famous line from the movie “Almost Famous,” and without knowing that, Rebecca Ann Henry, lead singer/aerialist, and I said that line to each other a few hours before her extremely captivating performance at the Bluebird Theatre on February 12th.
