On Tour

Marco Benevento | Brooklyn Bowl | Brooklyn, NY | 4/20/13 | Review

Following what felt like an eternal winter, New York City has finally begun to get some (somewhat) warm and sunny weather, and that alone was cause enough for celebration.

DeadPhish Orchestra | Boulder Theater | 4/20/13 | Review/Photos

Dead Phish Orchestra (DPO) kicks off right with ‘My Friend, My Friend’ opener, they showcase exuberant energy for such a dark song and then burst quite alarmingly in to Casey Jones. This is commonplace for the band, a bizarre mash-up of idyllic songs switching back and forth between Phish and the Grateful Dead.

Elephant Revival | George's Majestic Lounge | 4/24/2013 | Review

Elephant Revival. If you don’t come out of one of their shows feeling refreshed, uplifted, happier…you may want to visit the doctor. Of course, we all change with every single action and thought, but Elephant Revival packs what seems like a whole lifetime of life lessons, revelations and beauty into a 2-hour set. So when you see them live, you’re sure to get more than just some time in a bar listening to music out of your experience.

Rocktin Grove | A Night in the Grove | Fox Theater | Review

It's always exciting to be caught off guard by the abilities of a band you've never seen. Having heard amazing things about Rocktin Grove—a group out of Boulder—I was excited to finally see them play, especially at their biggest headlining show yet: The Fox Theater.

Furthur | Boardwalk Hall | Atlantic City, NJ | 4/27/2013 | Review

Comparisons - The world is littered with them. We compare this to that for reasons only the people doing the comparing can comprehend. Sometimes they are interesting, sometimes they are not.

Furthur @ Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday 4/27/13 left me comparing a laundry list of items.

Personal Comparison #1 – Deadheads Then Vs. Now

Disco Biscuits | Boulder Theater | Boulder, CO | 4/25/13 | Review

My issue with the whole trance fusion style of free-music is that it lacks a fundamental separation from what a DJ could compile in a two hour set. Only a few select bands hold the torch as progressive and risky enough to truly hold my attention. Above all of the one-hit DJs and livetronica wannabees is bands like Lotus, STS9 and The Disco Biscuits.

Umphrey's McGee | Stubb's BBQ | Austin, TX | 4/20/2013 | Review

Austin, Texas was the final stop on Umphrey’s McGee’s nine-date southern run. What a great city to end the tour in as well. Stubb’s BBQ is an outdoor backyard style venue in the middle of downtown.

The band had been hyping the 420 show via their social media networks for weeks and they didn’t disappoint. This was the first time Umphrey’s sold out the 1,800 person capacity venue.

The Motet | Fillmore Auditorium | Denver, CO | 4/20/13 | Review

"The biggest and most badass show in Motet history!" - Dave Watts

Lucero | Bluebird Theatre | Denver, CO | 4/19/2013 | Review

The great thing about a small venue like the Bluebird is you can literally feel the music.  You can feel the floor shaking to the beat as people dance and jump about.  You can feel the bass and kick drum in your chest. You can talk to the artist on stage, and they'll talk back.  It's an intimate experience, which is a good thing for a band like Lucero.

After kicking off their highly anticipated 2013 Spring Tour in Minneapolis the previous night, the ever evolving, genre defying electronic group Sound Tribe Sector 9 continued onwards to Madison to display their talents in front of a packed house at the Orpheum Theatre.
