Greener on the Other Side: Jackie Greene Shows Freedom, Experimentation on Stage

With the release of his fifth album, Jackie Greene said in an interview that he was tired of being labeled as the “new Dylan.” Now almost four years later with another record under his belt, Greene’s live performance has placed him in a realm outside of the more simple acoustic guitar and harmonica playing solo artist that gave Greene his start.

Disco Biscuits & EOTO | Chicago, IL | 12/30/11 | Review & Pics

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld Lang syne?

For auld Lang syne, my Jo (or my dear),
for auld Lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld Lang syne.

Reed Foehl | Shack @ Shug's | Boulder, CO | 1/14/2012

You always know you’re in for a treat when Reed Foehl takes the stage.  He has been providing an intricate blend of heartfelt soul and smooth jams for more than two decades.  A Boston transplant he quickly gained local fame after moving to Boulder with his former band, Acoustic Junction, in the early nineties.  He has become largely known for his lyrical ability as an artist.  He possesses a talent that is very seldom seen (or heard) nowadays.

G. Love & Special Sauce | Fox Theater | 12/30/2011 | Review | Pics

Upon hearing that G. Love and Special Sauce planned to ring in 2012 in Boulder, CO’s Fox Theatre, I was initially surprised. A lot of bands generally try to play big holiday and New Years Eve run shows in, or in close proximity to, their hometowns, so it initially seemed odd that G. Love (a.k.a.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit @ The Fox Theater | 1/5/2012

Jason Isbell is one of those artists able to magnificently personify a region of the United States through his performance; he and his band are undoubtedly from the South, Muscle Shoals, Alabama to be exact. On Thursday night at The Fox Theater in Boulder they treated the audience to some musical southern hospitality in the finest sense.

Dave Papuga's Top 10 Shows of 2011

Out of over 200 live acts I was fortunate to catch this past year, here are 10 of my favorites:

Other Lives | Hi-Dive | Denver, Colorado | 12/14/11

The Hi-Dive is anything but expansive. But when Other Lives played on December 14th, on the last night of their eight month tour, the progressive folk band brought cinematic space and light to the stage with a shimmering performance.  The crowd at the sold out show was clearly enamored with these five, who between them played enough instruments for a small orchestra, and sounded like one, too.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Boulder Theater | 12/30/2011

In the build up to their five-night run at The Boulder Theater, Yonder Mountain String Band announced that a guest musician would be sitting in with them each evening.

JGB Band Live at Quixotes True Blue | 12/29/2011

For the fans of the Grateful Dead most saw the time they spent as shows as an escape from reality, a dojo where the realms of the ordinary and the everyday vanished. The counterculture that surrounded that band was not only based on the years of memories captured in the hearts of millions, but like church, a Deadhead could truly have a mind-left-body experience and be closer to their spiritual selves.

Railroad Earth | New Years Eve | Ogden Theater | 2011>2012

On New Year’s Eve, Railroad Earth swung into a rendition of Warhead Boogie that, when all was said and done, left me in a state of almost comical ecstasy. During the crescendo and climax, I was twirling and spinning and swirling and grinning, and, then, when even kinetic rhythm couldn’t contain my body, I jumped as high I could, over and over, like a gobsmacked pogo stick.
