BoomBox Comes Back To Boulder

It was another typical Saturday night in Boulder, Colorado.  University Hill was crawling with weekend revelers, frat boys wearing their hats like idiots, freshmen trolling for house parties where no one checks ID, and throngs of music fans smoking cigarettes and talking it up outside the Fox Theatre.  The crowd outside the Fox was a pretty good cross-section of Boulder society - a mix of tie-dy

Denver Feasts on Cornmeal

Yep, even in Illinois they like their grass blue.  The Chicago-based progressive bluegrass outfit Cornmeal is proof of that.  Combining elements of traditional bluegrass, country, roots, modern rock, and improvisational jam the group fosters a unique and pleasing sound that wins over fans across a host of genres.

Trey Anastasio | The Palace Theater | Albany, NY

Trey exorcised a lot of demons in 5 short days. He began a headlining tour for the first time since getting sober, in the city at the center of the universe, no less. He returned to his adopted home state, the prodigal son coming full circle, back to the city the he and his band mates put on the map as the musical Mecca of the northeast in the early 90's.

The Duo | W.E.S.T. | The Higher Ground | 10/16/08 | Review

In 2002, I remember walking down the street that lead to the back of one of the smaller stages at the High Sierra Music Festival late one afternoon and being amazed by the sheet of sound that was slowly encompassing me with every step forward.

Mason Jennings & Zach Gill | The Higher Ground | Burlington, VT

I have to admit, I like to take an angle when I write. Often times, I will have a phrase or concept thought out, which may be developed into an introduction, even before I go to see a band. How can that be, you may be asking. Well, most of the bands I review I have seen before and I can figure out what to expect. But, last Sunday night's show left me dumbfounded.

My Morning Jacket "Evil Urges" Tour

It seems like I have been on a huge My Morning Jacket kick since I first saw them at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2003. Then, their epic performance in the pouring rain the following year made me a real die hard fan.

New Album Review: Michael Falzarano | 'We Are All One'

Michael Falzarano is like a hidden hand, we've all heard his music, but many would be surprised by his musical resume.  So it might be helpful to start with Michael's past in order to explain how his new album came to be.  For over 35 years Falzarano has been a member of some of the more influential groups in jam-band hi

Cold War Kids Heat Up The Boulder Theater

Another Friday night in Downtown Boulder, CO.  It was one of the biggest crowds I'd seen lately at the Boulder Theater, the kind where once you're in, you're only getting out again at the expense of your standing room – it would be filled by someone else when you get back.  I felt extremely lucky to have been there at all, since the show was sold out, had been for a week or more, and I only just got the call telling

Richie Havens | The Higher Ground | 9/28/08

I hope that you and I have something in common. I hope, like me, you have a few events in your life, maybe a handful even, that are unique. Not unique because they only happened to you, like that time your Aunt Rosemary pinched your ass as you walked by her at Easter Brunch. You can save that unique event for your therapist.
