Elephant Revival @ George's Majestic Lounge | Preview

Over the years, many great bands have played the stage at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, AR. And many of them have played in Fayetteville year after year. One of those bands is Elephant Revival. If you haven’t seen this band before, just go. I promise you won’t regret it. In the short time I’ve been listening to Elephant Revival, they’ve become one of my top 5 bands.

Festivaaal! Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass giants, Leftover Salmon brought the sauce to Fort Collins’ Aggie Theater this April.

Jeff Austin & Friends | Fox Theater | 4/12/2013 | Review/Photos

Out of the resurging Bluegrass Music movement one of the most seasoned vets around is Jeff Austin. The mandolin-man of Yonder Mountain String Band built his following beside his band-mates based upon a loyal fanbase and always keeping it interesting for them. Yonder lives for their fans, and have made their mark in the community.

Drive-By Truckers | Boulder Theater | 4/13/2013 | Review/Photos

Before the band even takes the stage, the energy at "the rock show" is palpable:  Whiskey and flannel, talks of SEC football, and sweet sweet accents.  It's the closest to the south you’ll get on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado.

Dumpstaphunk | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO | 4/11/2013 | Review

A common misconception about funk music is that the style is all nostalgia and not contemporary. Many of the founders of the form are still performing today such as George Clinton, George Porter Jr., Leo Nocentelli, or Art Neville.

Toots and the Maytals | Fox Theater | 4/1/2013 | Review

Recently I had the special opportunity to see the legendary Toots and the Maytals, just a couple of blocks from my house at the Fox Theater in Boulder CO. My work thus far with Grateful Web has been mostly reviewing jam-bands, taking notes on their instrumentation, and reporting commendable jams. So, as you could imagine, this was a much different experience than I was used to.

Lotus | Boulder Theater | Boulder, CO | 4/4/2013 | Review/Photos

When Lotus comes to Boulder, Colorado, the streets are just a bit more abuzz. People standing in front of the Boulder Theater are giving off a charge of excitement, and there’s a stimulating, magnetic sense in the air that tells us of what’s to come.

The 100 Percent Are The Real Deal

On an otherwise nondescript Thursday night at Shine, local band The 100 Percent made the most of their 45-minute set. Packing in nine soul-soaked original tunes that had the crowd cheering and clapping, often before the song was even complete, the band displayed chops that show they have what it takes to differentiate themselves in the oversaturated Boulder music scene.
