On Tour

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.

The Wailers | Fox Theater | 1/10/2009

They started in a Jamaican town originally established to house refugees of an earthquake. Today they are the most influential reggae act of the 21st century, responsible for shaking up the scene with their conscious-raising sound.

Mike Gordon | The Higher Ground | 12/30/2008

As the thermometer's mercury spends more of its time below freezing than above, I have a warm spot inside as, in my imagination, I concoct endless paths that Phish may take on their summer tour following the recently announced dates in June. Perhaps all the rumors of the phearsome phorsome headlining Bonnaroo Inc. are just meant to throw us off the scent of their real path.

Most tribute bands fall short of capturing the true essence of their musical pioneer predecessors.

New Years Eve: Zeppelin Reborn as Rose Hill Drive

Picture this: it's the night before the New Year and throngs of revelers in all stages of anticipation are moving on downtown Boulder.  Some of us are eager to put the shit behind us and start anew, others of us are ready to step it up a notch and make the next year even better, some of us are just out to party, and still others are wondering where we all go from here.  2009 has a lot worth to look forward to – a new president, a new age of reason, and a new chance to do all the stuff we forgot to do last year.  And what better way to ring in the New Year than with the loudest, rockin'-est

Turbine Rumbles in the Red Fish

With one of the biggest food and family holidays only a few days behind us, and the always-rowdy student population on hiatus until early January, Downtown Boulder was a quiet place to be on December 28.  The scene was atypical, and I felt out of place as one of only about three people on the town.  The music scene, however, never sleeps, and those of us fortunate enough to be out and about were in for a special treat.  Turbine was set to tear up the Red Fish, harmonicas
