If you’re not familiar with the Devil Makes Three, they’re California natives that have been pounding the pavement since 2002. They’re an amazing combination of folk, rock, alternative with some bluegrass and country mashed in. Their newest album is titled “Redemption & Ruin” and was released in 2016. They were in Denver on a two […]

What a great bunch of dudes in this band. Had the chance to come hang out prior to the show and experience the Herman’s Hideaway green room in it’s full glory. Tough light in here, but a great evening in general. On the road for their first national tour, Denver was their second stop along […]

Here’s a bunch of photos from Trampled by Turtles’ two days in Colorado. Wednesday at the Ogden was a great warm up for an amazing Thursday evening at Red Rocks. Got to meet one of the best beat writers in the NHL (and laugh about Roy leaving the Aves) both evenings. Had absolutely incredible access […]

A long but fun weekend photographing and camping in Telluride, CO. Which is quite possibly one of the most beautiful places on earth. Parking is an absolute disaster, but that’s what happens when 10k cars ascend on a town the size and shape of Telluride. Trying to convince the Wife that we need to go […]

  I’ve covered a handful of Illegal Pete’s performances in the past. Though typically, they’re in a thousand square foot restaurant in Denver – in front of thirty to a hundred people. The venue was certainly larger and slightly more packed, the only thing missing from my evening was a burrito the size of my dog. As we wheezed our […]

  It’s been a number of years for me since visiting any Denver concert venues. I decided to immerse myself this weekend between the Walnut Room and Red Rocks back into the Denver scene. Saturday evening we wandered out to the Walnut Room in Denver to check out Sage Cook’s new project We Dream Dawn […]

  Harriet Brewing’s 4th Annual Extravaganza on Saturday was an inevitable success at the Cedar this past Saturday. Starting the night out with The Last Revel, a punky-folk-rock trio had the near capacity crowd dancing while drinking, which can be a dangerous feat. Their music covered the bases of my musical tastes pretty well, though my […]

What’s not to love about a show at First Avenue on a kick ass day in Minneapolis? Last week American Aquarium set the bar for Justin Townes Earle to leap right the hell over. Those of you not familiar with Justin Townes Earle, well – should be. His father, Steve Earle is also one of […]

The Twin Cities based hip-hop duo known as Atmosphere came through Minneapolis tonight via the “North of Hell tour”. I had no idea we were even covering this until a last minute e-mail woke me from a hungover afternoon’s nap, though my preparation process really just involves grabbing my camera and rolling out.  I’ve been […]

  An enthusiastic crowd filled the 7th Street Entry at First Avenue on Thursday night for Minneapolis-based band American Scarecrows CD release show to celebrate their second album Yesteryear. The 90 minute performance heavily favored their new material which features roots in country, rock and folk. The show started with “The Peak” and ended with […]

I got a chance to listen to Twin Cities local favorites American Scarecrow’s sophomore album Yesteryear prior to Thursday’s upcoming album release show @ 7th St Entry and wow. This is definitely an album worth picking up upon release. This album presents a new level of talent in multiple ways. It is one of those albums you […]

Spending Mother’s day with Nickel Creek at the State Theater in Minneapolis could have only been better if my Mother was actually there. Having been a long time listener to Nickel Creek, this was my first time experiencing them live. Friends and family who have had the pleasure of attending one of their shows have […]

Soundset was nothing short of spectacular this year, the weather even happened to agree. Canterbury Park smelled like Colfax Ave in Denver on 420 for most of the day and obviously into the evening. For the most part a very easy going, friendly and good looking crowd of people sold out this year’s Soundset which […]

While Dinkytown semi-erupted due to the Gophers’ hockey loss, St. Paul’s Fitzgerald theater was up and dancing by the time Pert Near Sandstone started their second set. The crowd seemed anxoius to dance most of the night and finally started when they returned to the stage after a brief set break. Multiple guests stopped out […]
