String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/31/2012 | Review

Many people love the holidays for different reasons. Christmas means family, friends, giving and receiving. Here in Colorado its usually around when our skiing gets pretty good and things tend to quiet down as students are off of classes and folks get a few days away from their jobs to spend time with those who matter. For many, the best time about the Holidays in New Years Eve. No matter what your up to, it needs to be exceptional. In Colorado, New Years usually means great music.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Boulder Theater | 12/31/2012

As far as ways to start off 2013, you can’t do much better than Yonder Mountain String Band at the Boulder Theater. Mixing a balanced setlist that featured a little bit of everything with the inimitable Darol Anger on the fiddle made for a tasty New Year’s Eve stew.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Boulder Theater | 12/30/2012

When Yonder Mountain String Band gets the chance to play in Boulder, Colorado, they don’t pull any punches. The supposed “warm-up” show at the Boulder Theater the night before New Year’s Eve was filled with high-energy performances and dazzling musicianship that left the capacity crowd satisfied and happily exhausted by the time the music stopped at 1:30.

String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/30/2012 | Review

It really has been quite a journey for Colorado’s String Cheese Incident. There are small and humble beginnings for these fellas who have now gone on to influence a solid generation of bluegrass-fusion bands. Michael Kang, Bill Nershi, Michael Travis, and Keith Moseley talk about how in the beginning they would play unplugged next to the ski lifts at Telluride and Crested Butte, Colorado, hoping to score a free lift ticket and gain some local clout.

String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/29/2012 | Review

A New Year’s Eve Party is much like the Super Bowl. A highly anticipated hyped event that rarely lives up to preceding tension. The event must live up to the crowds expectations and tote a larger than expected production. If you don’t end up there, or if game time doesn’t deliver the goods, disappointment is naturally amidst. Luckily us Coloradan’s here on the Front Range we have a super rare opportunity to end our year with; the chance to spend three nights with an iconic Colorado musical entity.

Eliot Lipp | Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake | Music Review

The always fresh, always different, producer Eliot Lipp recently signed with the Pretty Lights Music Label to release his first LP in just over three years. Known for his incredibly versatile multi-genre sounds, this Brooklyn-based producer has been constantly touring, releasing albums, and changing the game for just under a decade. What’s so intriguingly different about Lipp’s style and approach is his ability to seamlessly flow instrumental sounds together to form a fusion of melodies not yet classified as a genre.

NYM | Warm Blooded Lizard | Album Review w/ Interview

As in all great Western movies, the hero is dark and nebulous. He rides through town morally ambiguous. On his heels, a shadowy past in pursuit like squalid curs nipping at his boot straps. He goes by NYM. Rumor has it he “captured an orphaned farmhand’s ragged cry for justice in a chipped whiskey bottle and drank it.”  Currently residing in San Francisco, NYM is a self-produced, experimental instrumentalist who is both imaginative and talented. NYM explains his album "Warm Blooded Lizard" (Feb.

Alt-J | An Awesome Wave | Album Review

An Awesome Wave, the debut release by British quartet, ∆ (pronounced Alt-J) is instantly a highly prized band by fans and critics. Perhaps “instantly” isn’t the right word to describe An Awesome Wave. Alt-J was formed back in 2007.
