Dr. John plays ETOWN

Review of the live taping of the eTown variety show at the Boulder Theatre in Boulder, CO, featuring the great Dr. John and new singer-songwriter Billy Miles on March 23 2005.

Last night I attended a live musical event which was much different than the concerts that I am used to.  I went to my second live broadcasting of the national radio show called etown.

Very Blissful Family: Bob Weir & RatDog in Denver

Among deadheads and weir-dos across Colorado the cheerful feeling was mutual as the crowd poured out of the Fillmore Auditorium Friday night after Bob Weir and RatDog threw down a celebration in the heart Denver.

The Bad Plus | Boulder Theater | 10/31/05 | Review

The Bad Plus at the Boulder Theater Halloween night was a truly fun event. Taking the stage at 9:30pm the three piece Jazz band made up of Reid Anderson on bass, Ethan Iverson on Piano, and David King on drums settled on the stage in the glow of a warm red light. They opened up with the theme from the movie Halloween evoking light laughter from the audience. They continued to tease the Theme from Halloween through out the night.

Local Music Review: Torrid Flesh

I lucked out on this one. I showed up at Pinky's this past Wednesday to hang out with my new friends Iconocaust. Shred had given me a call and said that their new CD was finished and he had a signed copy for me to pick up at their show. Definitely pick up "The Natural Evolution of Metal" from there website! Awesome stuff!

Local Music Review: Iconocaust

For years Denver has been overlooked as a source for new music. Everyone knows about L.A, Seattle and New York but I guess the main stream media in this country figures Denver is backwater country town and if someone happens to come out of this area playing metal, rock, or rap it was just a fluke. Well some of the best metal I have heard in the last several years has all been in some of the local bars and warehouses in the Denver/Boulder area. RCA and Sony need to set up shop here in Denver if they want to get in on the new music revolution, L.A.

Jerry Garcia Tribute | "Comes A Time"

The angle SCI had on the material was exquisite. They played these great songs from the inside out. The JGB, however, seemed all surface to me. The False Jerry kind of weirded me out. It seemed like more gloss and showmanship than anything else. They're a professional outfit, of course, but w/o Jerry there, or Kahn, it didn't really have much meaning for me compared to Nelson/Rothman, SCI and the RatDog sets. I'd have to say that JGB was the weakest set of the night, not that they weren't entertaining though...

Mountain Jamming w/ The Allman Brothers Band

The first thing I see as I enter the top of Red Rocks is the full moon just barely sitting on the Colorado horizon. It's got that dusky, orange glow and an uncanny resemblance of, well, dare I say, a Georgia peach. It sat center-stage and shined like a beacon getting brighter and brighter the higher it went.

Trey Anastasio & 70VP | Red Rocks | 8/13/05

Is there a better place to 'see music' than Red Rocks? With it's surreal, natural appeal and rock history ridden presence, it is no wonder why Trey Anastasio still gets excited to play Colorado's favorite venue.
