Mischief Night with Particle: The Return of Charlie Hitchcock

Mischief night, October 30, 2010, the Los Angeles-based band Particle brought their brand of ‘electro-funk rock’ to the University Hill area of Boulder, Colorado. The venue was the popular Fox Theatre. This show was to be a culmination of a run of four shows in Colorado, and a celebration for the band of 10 years in the business.

Hangin @ Hodi's w/ Great American Taxi

Great American Taxi rolled thru Fort Collins CO on Wednesday, October 27th 2010.  After having a month off the road, Taxi is gearing up for a big holiday weekend playing the Fillmore with Leftover Salmon on Saturday 10/30.  If you’ve ever been to Hodi’s Half Note, when you stand outside you can look across the street and see signs for, “sense of place”, “designs”, and “mountain shop”.  That pretty much sums up a little music joint like Hodis.

Danielle Ate the Sandwich | Gothic Theater

Before attending Danielle Ate the Sandwich at the Gothic Theater on October 8th I was unsure as to what kind of sandwich exactly she may have eaten. However, after speaking to Danielle before her show and watching her exuberant performance I was certain said sandwich must be chock full of wit, talent and brilliance.

Blowing out the carbs with The Avett Brothers & Grace Potter and The Nocturnals

My father used to call it ‘blowing out the carbs..’ I was a little girl, in Northeast Texas, in the middle 70s. We had old cars, my entire childhood, often hotrods, or in leaner times at least a family car with a big-assed surprise under the hood..

Some of those older hot rods of his were high-performance cars that had four-barrel carburetors. If you drove slowly around town, you'd use only two of the barrels. To exercise the other barrels and keep them from sticking, you'd have to get the car on the highway and accelerate hard for at least a short time.

Blitzen Trapper's Blitz on Boulder

Overall, the general tide in Indie rock pulls heavily towards the twinkley.  Lots of synth, lots of electronics, lots of over-dubbing, lots of special effects, and less dirty guitar with each passing year.  Not that I would attempt to deny the appeal that this trend has – I’ve grown fond of pretty much the whole spectrum over the past decade – but what this trend conspicuously lacks is grit.  Grit and twinkle just don’t go that well together.

Foals Infects Larimer Lounge With "Antidotes"

In America, pissed means angry. In England, pissed means drunk. Yannis Philippakis, front man of Oxford’s dance-rock band Foals, was both, a potentially dangerous combination that worked to his benefit.

Cornmeal Brings Heat to Fire Benefit After-party

There was a buzz in the air of Boulder Colorado, October 9, 2010.  On the cool fall Saturday night, people were celebrating life, friendship, and the end of a very destructive fire that burned outside of Boulder early last month. Lasting nearly a week, the Boulder Fourmile Canyon fire was the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history; destroying 169 homes, and scorching nearly 8000 acres of land.

Fourmile Canyon Revival: Good Karma, Good Music & Good Times

Strong winds from the west blew across a dirt parking lot… people tuck their heads, pulling their hats tighter to their skulls as they struggle against the wind, walking towards a dusty, rock strewn patch of earth… getting closer, t-shirts and the tarps they are laid out on struggle to stay grounded as their owners try to protect their wares from the dust… Girls in ruffled tutu’s and fishnet stockings are re-thinking their outfit choices in light of the chill the wind brings with it- but dust and wind are commonplace occurrences for these veteran Colorado concert goers… rocks brought along

New Deal Unleashes Dance Fury

On the night of October 7th, 2010, an eclectic crowd discusses festivals and shows of past in the brisk fall mountain air of Boulder Colorado. Crowds began pouring into the beautiful Fox Theater as Brothers Past has begun to wrap up the last half of their set. Deep trance beats fueled by funky vibes, high pitched vocals, and high energy was met with a howling departing ovation from the crowd.
