On Tour

Widespread Panic | Wood Tour | Fillmore | Denver, CO | Review

This February, Widespread Panic proved that you can still get a lot done while sitting on the job, as they celebrated 25 years of southern rock improvisation with the Wood TourDave Schools said, “I think that most people don’t have a preconceived notion and they like the air of mystery.  I know we do.”  He could have easily been speaking about the Wood Tour.  For an all-acoustic set-lis

Phil Lesh & Friends | 1st Bank Center | 2/16/12 | Review

By fall of 1994 the Grateful Dead scene was growing unmanageably large. Even large mainstay venues that the boys have been performing at for decades were too small anymore. The performance that used to be a not-so well-kept secret had grown to sell out the largest football and soccer stadiums.

moe.ulder! | Review

On such an amazing weekend of music around Boulder, Colorado, there were many tough decisions to make regarding what to see this weekend. The decision to see moe. at the Boulder Theater was an easy one. They always kill it, and the Boulder Theater is the perfect venue for them to play.

Phil Lesh & Friends | 1st Bank Center | 2/17/12 | Review

Specific aromas have the power to transport me back to an earlier, more youthful time: the earthy redolence of decaying leaves, mesquite smoke wafting from a neighbor’s barbeque, and even the gamy stench of a hockey locker room. I also have triggers for my ocular, haptic, gustatory, and aural senses. All of us do. And I thought sensory recall was the closest thing I would ever have to a time machine.

Ruthie Foster | L2 Arts and Culture Center | 2|18|12 | Review

Ruthie Foster and her band put on an interesting show at the L2 Center in Denver this past Saturday. Foster came on the music scene in the 1990s with a powerful and soulful gospel voice, often compared to that of Ella Fitzgerald.

Yonder Makes The 1 Year Wait Worth It For Us Southern Fla Folk

Expecting an opening act, we arrived at the venue an hour after the doors were to open. There turned out to be no opening act, and the wait for the band went on for a seemingly endless  2++ hours. There was little entertainment aside from an unruly hula hooper among the large, otherwise well behaved Broward County crowd.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Revolution | 2|17|12

Going to see Yonder Mountain String Band in your t-shirt and shorts in February is pretty special, especially when you’re from Boulder.  I was lucky enough to catch YMSB last night, which for me is fortuitous timing considering I am in town visiting my mom (and planning a monster trip to The Galapagos next week).

Elephant Revival | Boulder Theater | eTown | 02|12|2012 | Review

“In the woods, we return to reason and faith. There I feel that nothing can befall me in life, -- no disgrace, no calamity (leaving me my eyes), which nature cannot repair. Standing on the bare ground, -- my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space, -- all mean egotism vanishes.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature

“Go and sing to the mountains

Gipsy Moon | Lazy Dog Saloon | Boulder, Colorado | Review

Saturday night, I had the privilege of catching an up and coming Boulder folk band called Gipsy Moon. They combine bluegrass, soul, alternative rock, and a little bit of gipsy jazz, weaving an intricate aura of acoustic song.
