Angry Angry Grrrls: Vanity Theft @ The Knitting Factory

I’m a die-heart feminist. That’s why I was surprised by how distasteful the Vanity Theft show was on February 2.

Bobby Long Walks the Line in the Thick of Acoustic & Electric

Straddling a fence is a position few if any people like to find themselves in, each foot planted in opposition. Bobby Long has found himself a flourishing home in this middle ground however, a point not of indecision but of movement and change from a solo musician to recording and performing with a full band.

Prog Reduced to Roots: The Decemberists Let the Yoke Fall from Their Shoulders

Just by the looks of the stage before any performers stepped foot on it, it was obvious that the evening’s music would be substantial. In addition to the usual drum set, keyboard station, guitar stands, and microphones, there was also an accordion, an upright bass lying on its side, lone floor toms set up next to three of the stations, a guitar rack complete with acoustic and electric axes, mandolin, lute, dobro and banjo, and random shakers sprawled about.

Furthur is back in Broomfield, Colorado's 1st Bank Center less than 1 year since the opening of the refurbished arena.   With Furthur's arrival came the start of a lovely weekend both for the weather and for the lots of friends in town to catch some of the first shows of 2011.

Hit by a Train -- the Old 97’s in Boulder

I left the Boulder Theater with both ears ringing thoroughly and my head in a satiated state of buzz, and in fact I was bone sober (as far as intoxicants are concerned).

PRAANG @ Quixote's | 1/22/2011

PRAANG walked on stage around eleven o’clock and gave the audience a solid three hours of improvisatory jamming.

Beat Kaestli & Elizabeth Lohninger @ The Zinc

On January 24th, NYC witnessed its coldest day in six years with high forecasts for the day in low teens. While the city's wiser residents spent their night coddled in sweaters and blankets, a select few decided to brave their way into Greenwich Village and attend Zinc Bar for a night of blood-tempering jazz and booze.

Who’s bad? Michael Jackson comes to Boulder (sort of)

My first interaction with a live music concert was in 1984 at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, where I saw the Victory tour as a young kid. I still remember it vividly to this day. My family and I had to park so far away from the stadium because it was so crowded, and we hiked it for several miles to get there. Once there, I remember the electric that I felt that night.
