Umphrey's McGee | Fillmore | Denver | 3/9/12 | Review

Submitted by Tim Hurley on Wed, 03/21/2012 - 1:58 pm

What has become an annual winter pilgrimage to Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium for progressive rock stalwarts Umphrey's McGee should now be considered a must-see event for area music fans.  Judging by the variety of ages, fashions, and general enthusiasm shown by those in attendance, coupled with the fact that the performance sold out weeks in advance, it would appear that word has already gotten out.

Hey Rosetta!: 'Seeds' | CD Review

Submitted by Trevor Stewart… on Mon, 03/19/2012 - 9:43 am

Canadian rock band Hey Rosetta!'s third studio album, Seeds continues the vibe the group started back in 2005. They certainly take a leap forward in their production, however, as the sounds found on this album are far more multi-layered than their previous material. Take the opening track, "Seeds," for instance. It begins with a complex sounding guitar mix with many intertwined levels, then breaks into an upbeat rock hook with synthesized claps.


Zach Deputy | Fox Theatre | Boulder, CO | Review & Photos

Submitted by Jonathan Regner on Sun, 03/18/2012 - 1:22 pm

Zach Deputy brought his creatively branded “island infused, drum ‘n’ bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul” to the Fox Theatre this week.  Part gospel, because he is a disciple in the way of the one-man-band.  Part ninja, because his music attacks you with dizzying techniques.  Part soul, because whether or not you choose to surrender to his music, your soul cannot escape.  Ok, that might not be the meaning Zac

Impressively Awesome: The Yawpers throw down at the Walnut Room

Submitted by Andrew Metzger on Thu, 03/15/2012 - 11:20 am

This past Saturday at The Walnut Room I experienced The Yawpers.  I purposefully say, “experienced,” because that is happens when you see The Yawpers, you gain a meaningful experience.  Well, maybe not meaningful, but definitely a great time where you may find yourself getting sucked into their rhythmic guitar riffs, dancing, and drinking a bit too much.  I found myself enthralled while listening to them and I can happily repor


Los Lobos | Boulder Theater | 3/9/2012 | Review and Photos

Los Lobos played an intimate acoustic performance on Friday night at the Boulder Theater. The Mexican-American rock and roll band who are probably best known for their work on the “La Bamba” soundtrack brought the house down, but had a bit of a hard time keeping the show fully acoustic. The theater broke out the auxiliary chair stash for the performance, filling in the normally empty floor section.

Leftover Salmon | Fox Theater | 3/7/2012 | Review

Many different bands could be sited as having created the Boulder music sound. Since the 1970s and even before, Boulder has been an outlet for “freaks” everywhere to unite and be free in artistic creation and expression. Along with having a large population of young people from University of Colorado’s Boulder campus, the spirit of the town itself has always been young, wild, and free. Of all the artistic mediums, Boulder’s live music scene and support has always seemed strongest.

Drive-By Truckers | Fox Theater | 3/10/12 | Review & Photos

Submitted by Dave Papuga on Sun, 03/11/2012 - 6:06 pm

The Drive-By Truckers don’t play mediocre live shows. It’s pretty much a guarantee that any given audience in any given city is set to have their collective mind blown as they sit in a jam-packed theater, watching the techs set up the mics and guitars and set out the signature bottles of Jack Daniels and Patron on their respective stations on the stage. It’s a sure bet on ticket-money well spent—assuming you’re a fan of ass-kicking southern rock and roll.
