On Tour

Xavier Rudd | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO | 11/11/12 | Review

This November 11, Boulder, Colorado’s Fox Theater hosted Xavier Rudd, one of Australia’s most iconic voices, for the last American stop along his Spirit Bird Tour. Behind his custom drum set equipped with two didgeridoos, Xavier Rudd appeared like a mythic creature from an aborigine creation story.

Infamous Stringdusters | Cervantes | 11/10/2012 | Review

One of the more humorous developing attitudes of newer bluegrass acts is that they don’t like applying the label “bluegrass”. Though their instrumentation, song selection, and style all point to an existing form. The trend seems to be that up-and-comings feel marginalized by being cornered into accepting the label. In certain ways I understand this fear.

Beats Antique | Contraption Vol. 2 | New Music Review

Beats Antique brings us a new 8 track EP bursting with many styles of world music and theatrical composition, its impossible not to get into it.  Beats Antique was formed in San Francisco, California and in 2007 created their first album.

Rumpke Mountain Boys | Trashgrass CD Release Party | Review

There are bands that throw a CD Release Party, and there are bands that are a party every time they take the stage, no matter what night of the week it is.  Cincinnati bred fastgrass up and comers The Rumpke Mountain Boys, the region’s ultimate newgrass party band, took over the stage of the Beachland Ballroom, where

The Werks | Baltimore Soundstage | Batimore, MD | 11/3/12

Sometimes all that a band needs to do is throw a small party before your tour, inviting your closest friends to wish you luck as you head out on your first major tour across America.  Or you can do things like The Dayton, OH bred psychedelic powerhouse band The Werks, who after their now legendary performances at their own festival, aptly named Werk Out, immediately launched

DSO and Phil & Friends swap keyboardists for special Dec. Shows

In a move that excited many DSO and Furthur fans across the country, Phil and Friends have pulled off a trade for Rob Barraco, keyboardist for Dark Star Orchestra, sending keyboardist Jeff Chimenti to the chilly east coast to play four DSO dates in New York, Maine, and Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Sam Bush | Quixotes | Denver, CO | 11/2/2012 | Review

Bluegrass has become more obscured than ever. Is there even such a thing as “pure” bluegrass? Some would argue that the music of Bill Monroe and his alumni are as accurate of a way to directly describe the genre. In truth, there is no such thing as “pure” bluegrass since it’s inherently a hybridized form.

Primus | Fillmore Auditorium | Denver, CO | 11/3/12 | Review

In the midst of a full-on revival, Primus played a sold-out show at the Fillmore on Saturday night. This was not to be a typical concert experience however; this tour has been billed as Primus 3D.

DeVotchKa | Boulder Theater | 10/26/12 | Review & Photos

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is celebrated at the end of October or early November across Mexico as a celebration and worship of ancestors long since passed.  In more Southern areas of Mexico, home to Mayan ancestors, the holiday is called “Hanal Pixan”; which translates to ‘souls food’.  People celebrate by making food and altars to present to their deceased family members.  At Boulder Theater,

Donna the Buffalo | Dirty Bourbon | Albuquerque, NM | Review

Donna the Buffalo has been touring for the past 20 years and has deservedly built up its own fan collective known as The Herd. That’s why I was initially mystified at the barren nature of The Dirty Bourbon in Albuquerque on Monday. In retrospect, I really should not have been too surprised.
