On Tour

Railroad Earth | Old School Freight Train | 2/20/09 | Review

Why do I have to go see live music? Not like to- have to. Why are recorded concerts more frequently played in my house than their studio counterparts? How can 3 hours of human life be changed into a heavenly experience just with the addition of an impassioned performance? Rhetorical perhaps, but valid questions. If you don’t agree with me, I am not sure why you are bothering to read any further. I write about music. Music that moves me, no, transports me.

Billy Kreutzmann | Fox Theater | 2/21/09 | Review

Of all the members of the Grateful Dead, Billy Kreutzmann, really knew how to retire.  Hanging out in Hawaii, he showed none of the predilection for road-warrioring into the sunset like his bandmates.  Sure he'd play with the boys when they got back together for the full band gigs and after ten years on the island he started playing out more often with various old cronies, but he didn't have h

Kreutzmann, Burbridge, & Murawski Give Cheers to "Good Times"

In the late sixties and early seventies they had Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but they didn't quite have in sound and performance what Bill Kreutzmann's power trio has today. The Grateful Dead drummer was joined on stage Saturday night at the Fox Theater with the Allman Brothers Band's Oteil Burbridge on bass and Max Creek's Scott Murawski on lead guitar.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo | Burlington, VT | Review

When my sister was in high school she was a musical filter for me, as I was her younger brother and was very impressionable. Most of the music I was listening too was coming on mix tapes that artsy-fartsy, private school boys would make for her and she would subsequently hand down to me when that boy's time passed. So, as my friends were enamored with the New Kids, Tiffany and Color Me Badd.

6 Servings of Disco Biscuits in Denver

There was big news over the weekend!  Nearing the end of their massive US tour, the Disco Biscuits rumbled through two sold out shows last Friday and Saturday night, at the Ogden Theater in Denver, and it won’t be long before the Biscuits are back again.  The big news was the announcement of a headlining show at the most spectacular venue in the country – Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO.  For die-hard Dis

Drew Emmitt & Friends @ the Boulder Theater

He's been known to show a mandolin and viola who is boss, while still keeping his humble frontman persona intact. A modest yet instrumentally explosive enigma, Drew Emmitt captures the attention of the audience as if they were a herd of famished field mice lured in by a hefty corncake crumb.

Good Time on Stage Shows Head East Slowing Down No Time Fast

Just looking at them, the five members making up the current line up of 1970's band Head East may look like a bunch of older guys with long hair and guitars. Get them plugged in and playing though, and they give a performance just as impressive and rocking as ever before.

North Mississippi Allstars & Hill Country Revue: A Family Affair at the Fox

It may have been a weeknight, but I saw that as no reason to stay in.  Anytime of any day or night is a good time for rock and roll, but last Thursday was a particularly noteworthy occasion.  One of the most exciting guitarists around was in town at the Fox Theatre, and I wasn't about to miss him.  I'm talking about Luther Dickinson, shredder-extraordinaire of the North Mississippi Allstars, and more recently, of a little side project that Chris

Umphrey's McGee Unleash the Fury at the Boulder Theater

An historic transition is underway in the music industry.  The digital age is causing the rapidly occurring obsolescence of solid-state media – records, CDs, and the like – right before our eyes.  It's sink or swim time for the recording industry and artists alike: either get on board and innovate your marketing for the 21st century, or cling to a dying system and go down with the ship.  Fortunately for the music-loving public, intelligent artists are choosing to swim, often leaving their record labels behind in favor of more consumer-driven approaches, despite the fact that the Recording I

Old Man Winter Blues & Brew Fest Heats Up the Frozen North

After a month of 25 and 35 below temperatures, North Dakota was treated to a tropical warm up of monstrous musical proportions.  Last weekend, the Hub Entertainment Complex hosted an all day indoor festival on two stages: The intimate Cadillac Ranch stage and the bigger, more open Venue stage.
