On Tour

Dandy Warhols | Showbox | Seattle, WA | Review

Thunderous oscillations expand violently from center stage, miraculously freed from a vintage Moog chipset only to be captured by my outer pinna, which sends the tone swirling inward toward the depths of my cochlea. The synthetic drone weaves through a latticework of scenestirs and technocrats occupying Seattle's Showbox Theater this evening. Ensuing layers of tonal stew self-oscillate, self-sustain, and self-evolve into an overwhelming muck that rattles the cinderblock before receding back toward its creator.

Curumin: A Man of Many Meanings

Any good musician uses language as a series of stepping stones to pass personal expression on to the audience. It is what binds us together. So when the musician Curumin (KOO-roo-mean) performed at Denver’s Bluebird Theater this past Sunday evening, expressing himself in Portuguese, I was searching to find what binds us together.

Shoe Groove | Ace Bar Chicago | 6/15/12 | Review & Photos

Last night as I entered the Ace Bar for Shoe Groove, I was greeted by Old Shoe’s manager Mike Kaiz.  He saw that I was burdened with my arms full of stuff and gestured to the back booth.  Reflecting back upon this, not only was this show a great summer skin showing show, but also an entire club where everyone could set their stuff together.

GrandMothers of Invention | Mother's Day | Boulder Theater

In a music career spanning over three decades, Frank Zappa put out over 60 albums. Some call him a genius. Those who don’t simply do not understand (pardon me and my asshole opinion—but I am right).

Break Science | Fox Theater | 5/23/12 | Review & Photos

Inside everyone rests passion and desire; Break Science puts those feelings into motion, stirring them up on a journey of all-encompassing musical wonder. The path was anything but straight, complete with twists, turns, and the always welcome drop. Feeling the music was the only option; there was no escaping the wide reaching combination of sounds and styles cruising out of the speakers and into ready ears that reach down to the feet of listeners.

Trampled By Turtles | Boulder Theater | 5/17/12 | Review & Photos

What is bluegrass? Is it the strictly dictated by the legacy of Bill Monroe? Is it constructed by the lead guitar flat-pick licks of Tony Rice, Norman Blake, or Charles Sawtelle? Is it held by the torch of the current up-and-up popularity that the genre is experiencing?
