On Tour

Phish | Matthew Knight Arena | 10/17/14

“Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer.”

A Birthday Blowout with Pearl Jam

Note from gratefulweb.com management:  We sent Jake Bendrick on assignment on Oct 22, 2014 with simple instructions.  1) Complete your concert review no later than 11:30PM and turn it in directly.  2) Keep it to 1000 words.  Rather than complying with our request he disappeared until late Sunday night at which point he returned to our office stinking of hydrogen peroxide, those rubber hot water bottles that people sometimes use for sore backs, and some kind of horrible Apple Candy Schnapps that supposed

Joe Russo's Almost Dead | Boulder Theater

How many more Dead tribute bands does the scene really need? There’s truly already plenty out there. Even if the music is structured to be boundless and open for continuation, it seems like bands could better serve the music with an improvisational spirit, but playing originals instead of Dead covers.

Under the Willow / SHEL | Abbey Chicago | Review

STS9 | Old National Center | Indianapolis, IN | Review

Bisco on the Green (almost)...Redeemed!

After the ambitious idea of working with a new promoter and having a three day outdoor run at Denver’s Sculpture Park, then Ruby Hill Park did not work out, because of permit issues for the new venues, the Disco Biscuits settled for a tried and true venue, the Ogden Theater, with their usual promoter who moved shows around to accommodate the laborious situation.

Fruition and Grant Farm | Denver | Review

Fruition and Grant Farm shared the stage September 25th at the Bluebird Theater in Denver to release their 4-song joint EP titled Meeting On The Mountain. The combination of Fruition’s bluegrass-Americana and Grant Farm’s country twang made for a great show with lots of friends, high-fives, and dancing.

Mainly known for his work in Bright Eyes, guitarist and vocalist Conor Oberst is in the midst of a coast-to-coast tour showcasing his new solo album, Upside Down Mountain. Recently, Oberst played a nearly sold-out show at The Boulder Theater in Boulder, Colorado.
