The Polyphonic Spree | Yes: It's True! | Review

Yes, it’s true: The Polyphonic Spree is releasing a new studio album only a mere six years after the release of The Fragile Army.  Tim DeLaughter and his ever-evolving, fifteen-piece ensemble have proven that they still have what it takes to make a refreshing harmonious explosion of pure delight all while staying true to the psychedelic-symphonic pop/rock sound that have been paramount to Polyphonic Spree albums of yore.

Boulder Gets Weirder with Weird Al Yankovic

It was Sunday night, and the proud nerds were lined up to get into the Boulder Theater to see Weird Al Yankovic on his White & Nerdy Tour. It was an all-ages show, and I was surprised to see so many children in the audience.

Widespread Panic | Oak Mountain | Pelham, Ala | Review

On a last minute whim, my friend and I decided it had been far too long since we had seen our homegrown boys, Widespread Panic. With a passion for the exhilaration of live shows and the surprises a band like Panic brings, once the thought entered our minds, we knew we couldn't fight it. So, we gathered a few others and set out towards Pelham, Ala.

Umphrey's McGee | Cabooze Outdoor Plaza | 7/6/13 | Review

South Bend, Indiana progressive rock band Umphrey's McGee has made quite a name for themselves in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area over the years. In the beginning the band played at venues like the Minnesota Zoo Amphitheatre and The Cabooze, building a reliable fan base that grew every time they returned to the Twins Cities. As they gained popularity, Umphrey’s McGee began to headline shows at the legendary First Avenue Nightclub, playing as many as three nights in a row to sold out crowds.

Cheap Trick | Seaside Summer Concerts | Coney Island | Review

Power-pop pioneers Cheap Trick kicked off the 2013 Seaside Summer Concert Series, which celebrates its 35th—and possibly last—anniversary this year. While the show didn't feel very summery due to the rain, it was a rousing start to another season packed with music legends such as Smokey Robinson, The Go-Go's, and Huey Lewis and the News.

Henhouse Prowlers | Breaking Ground | New Music Review

I’ll be honest: Chicago is probably the last place I tend to think of when we’re talkin’ bluegrass. Still, the Henhouse Prowlers have gained a healthy following out in the city they call home, so I figured a listen couldn’t hurt all that much.

Hopping in, the foursome’s not too rough around the edges—they’re speedy, low-gloss pluckers, and their record plays something like a ragtag barnyard session you’d find in a millennial Monte Hellman joint.
