Collin Herring's Own Past Life Crashing

This spring, Collin Herring's third album dropped. Its curious title, Past Life Crashing, is probably more indicative of what this talented young singer/songwriter has been about since his last release.

Koo Koo for The Kooks

It may not have been quite the British invasion like those of the Sex Pistols, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, or The Who, but The Kooks made quite an appearance at Thursday night's show in downtown Denver at the Ogden Theatre

From NY to B-Town, Super 400 tears it up in Boulder, CO

True to the classic spirit of Rock and Roll, and a hard hitting member of the so-called rock revival movement, Super 400 have rediscovered the beauty and simplicity of the power trio.  Kenny Hohman's guitar work is at times deliciously thick and crunchy, and at others soaring and smooth, kind of like his voice.  And he's got a killer rhythm section, with Joe Daley pounding out the heavy notes on the drums while the perpetually sexy Lori Friday pounds 'em out on the bass. 

Hot Fuckin' Tuna

We young people tend, for whatever reason, to badmouth those who are significantly older than us.  Maybe it's a fear of getting old ourselves that elicits this response, maybe it's a feeling of self-righteous know-it-all-ism, but what we tend to forget is that a great many things in this life get better with age.  Wine does, some cheese does, canned tuna does not, but Hot Tuna certainly does.

BoomBox Turns it up in Denver

DJ-inspired raves were all the rage in the mid-90s, and continue to be a popular mix of incredible electronic music and serious dance grooves.  The emerging popularity of jambands during that time has led to the inevtible crossover of the two genres, beginning with such pioneers as the Disco Biscuits.

The Raconteurs - The Loudest Thing in Pop Music: Day 3 of my Magical Mystery Weekend

It's tragically easy to grow tired of modern pop music.  Ever been to a show and wondered why the band stuck so rigidly to the formula already laid out on their studio albums?  I have.  Ever realized halfway through a performance that sounds you thought the band was making were prerecorded?  I have.  Ever turned off your radio for two months and felt like you weren't missing anything new?  I have.

Kimock, Vega, Molo, White, and Seals: Day 2 of my Magical Mystery Weekend

On day 2 of my Magical Mystery Weekend I found myself somewhere I'd never been before – the shower.  Wait, I mean Owsley's Golden Road in Denver, Colorado.  Exactly what a little venue in a big city should be, Owsley's screams character from every angle.  From the broke-ass stone edifice and multiple staging areas to the comfortably lit outdoor patio and a laxity towards the rules that the DEA might not entirely approve of, Owsley's is like a little slice of Amsterdam – completely laissez-faire.  The biggest appeal to me was the two stages,

Rooney's Ruffled Call to the World

Teeny-boppers made a comeback on Tuesday night at the Fox Theatre in Boulder for Rooney's 2008 tour, Calling the World. Rooney's all ages show brought in an eclectic mix of concert-goers: teenagers, college students, parents, and those oh so young pre-teens. Alabama band The Bridges, consisting of four girls and one guy, kicked off the night with a short set of folk, Dixie rock.
