Karl Denson's 'Dirty Mind' Tribute | Review

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Thu, 05/12/2016 - 12:48 pm

In the weeks following pop icon Prince’s untimely passing, hordes of respected entertainers paid their respects through acknowledgement or performance. Once again, an artist’s full depth and impact is celebrated strongest posthumously. That is not to say that Prince’s impact as a musician and atypical sex symbol wasn’t already deeply influential. Take funk saxophonist and bandleader Karl Denson.

Every Thursday at Cervantes Other Side in Denver, CO they feature a bluegrass night. On this night, Joseph James Brewing Company featured this week’s Grass For That Ass jam. This weekly tradition down in the Five Points section of this musical city has become a weekly occurrence for some of the bluegrass dedicated. On this night, there was a diverse music selection.

Nathaniel Rateliff | Stubbs | Austin, Texas

Submitted by Caitlin St. Pierre on Tue, 05/10/2016 - 5:33 pm

The other day I heard a startling statistic - over 200 people move to Austin every day. As a native Austinite, this doesn’t rattle me in any way… it just gives me a sense of unease for the future of my city. There’s a reason that droves of people are attracted enough to this energy to move here every day, but will too many people dilute that essence, that thing about Austin that gets into your bones? I don’t know.

Canadian songsmith-troubadour Tom Wilson has been a well known musician throughout Canada, Europe and many other parts of the world for along time. But he is largely a best kept secret to his southern neighbors in the states. I predict this is going to change. Having earned a popular reputation as a founding member of country-alt-rock band Blackie and The Rodeo Kings and Junkhouse, Tom has reinvented as LeE HARVeY OsMOND.

The New Stew | Philadelphia, PA | Review

Submitted by Mike Mannon on Sat, 05/07/2016 - 9:21 am

“Oh man, Bill Withers, oooh, he just gets me all over, you know?” a middle-aged woman I’d never met revealed to me as we waited for The New Stew to take the stage last night.

In just the second night of their limited run playing Withers’ classic 1973 album, Live at Carnegie Hall, it was clear that all over feeling is likely to spread.

Dark Star Orchestra | Boulder Theater | '16

Submitted by Philip Emma on Sat, 04/30/2016 - 11:28 am

The first night of this three-night Dark Star Orchestra run at the Boulder Theater was powerful, exciting, and fun. They played the first night of Red Rocks 1978, which was on August 30th, and it featured the first time ever played “’I Need a Miracle,” “Stagger Lee,” and “If I Had the World to Give.” Many of the patrons of the Boulder Theater were extremely happy as the buzz went around the venue of which show it was.

Chick Corea & Bela Fleck | Sonoma State U

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Mon, 04/25/2016 - 6:27 pm

Almost a decade ago, in a blissful oddity odyssey, master jazz pianist Chick Corea began collaborating with the greatest living banjo player Béla Fleck. It wasn’t quite as peculiar in Fleck’s world, as the genre-abolishing maestro's band The Flecktones thrived on inexplicable instrumental possibilities. He had also previously toured with Americana pianist and bandleader Bruce Hornsby.
