“As you can likely tell” Nathaniel Rateliff said in between songs “These are quite a bit different from the songs by The Night Sweats.’’ A quiet, seated crowd seemed to agree with tepid laughter. The last time most of us had seen Nathaniel Rateliff was during his tenure as a frontman of The Night Sweats, […]
“This album is the story of a second chance.” – Bethany Cosentino, Best Coast Always Tomorrow is the culmination of the last ten years of front person Bethany Cosentino’s life, seeing her stand back from the past decade of the band’s existence and taking stock in where she’s been and who she has become. It’s an album […]
“It’s freaking cold here!” Madison Cunningham said in between songs Friday night. “I know we’re wimps since we’re from California, but man, It’s got to affect you guys too.” To many of us, It had. While we’ve definitely had worse winters, It doesn’t feel any less cold. I’ve got two space heaters going in my […]
I was actually lucky enough to have two concerts to photograph on Saturday. After sneaking out after the first DBT set at the Gothic, I hopped on a bus and rode up to LoDo. Glad I did, as the Larimer was packed and absolutely rocking.
I was lucky enough to photograph two of the three Denver-metro show for the Drive-By Truckers. Here’s a few images from both. Fox Theater – Boulder, CO SETLIST: Intro Slow Ride Argument Heroin Again One of These Days Play It All Night Long When The Pin Hits The Shell Do It Yourself First Air of […]
Lost Dog Street Band Legendary Shack Shakers The Dead South
As I meandered through the crowd as Wilco began their set on the second of 3 shows this weekend, I began to smell the familiar scent of a fall bonfire. It was a mixture of pine, burning leaves, and birch. I thought it was odd that at a venue like this, where I typically am […]
in 2019, an all woman rock band isn’t as rare of a phenomenon as it used to be, but that doesn’t make it any less cool to see. For a long time, Sleater Kinney has shown people that “WoW, WoMeN ReAlLy CaN rOcK, huh?” and have moved well beyond the stigma of having to prove […]
If you didn’t think you could mosh at a Mac DeMarco concert, I’ve got some bad news. The night ended with a shirtless Mac on guitar, shredding “Enter Sandman” onstage, with a mosh pit opening up near the pit. Concertgoers were throwing themselves into eachother. For those not near the mosh pit, they danced and […]
Andrew Bird entered through a crooked door to the right of the stage at The Palace Theatre Friday night, and onto a stage that resembled a sort of worn, antiquated living room. To the applause of his audience, he picked up his violin from the case on a stand next to him, mounted it against […]
People love watching someone come into the spotlight. To “make it”. And I think it mainly has to do with the fact that they want to “make it” too, in whatever their profession is. Maggie Rogers is a musician from Maryland who has “made it” by many definitions. She’s currently on a tour that began […]
I’m not typically one for weeknight concerts. To be fair, I’m always up for a concert. But the older I get, the louder I hear “you have work tomorrow” echoing in my head while in route to the venue. Lucky, Surly hears this too. And with a 5pm showtime, they know how to quiet that […]
There’s a lot of young people still figuring out life at 22. Hell, there’s still a lot of people figuring life out who are older than that, but it’s a lot easier to do when you’re younger, “with the whole world ahead of you” as any boomer would tell you. So to have life even […]
Hinterland Music Festival, now in it’s 5th year, Added a 3rd day to its festival, meaning that to catch the whole weekend you’ll have to take both Friday AND Monday off if you don’t want to drive through the dead of night, at least for out-of-towners like me. Was this third day worth it? For […]
Night two. The incredible Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. If you came for Red Rocks and skipped this one, well, sorry.
The day started out early with sound check around noon. It’s kind of an surreal feeling when you’re the only person sitting in the stands while an amazing group like any of these three warm up. Today was a rare triple-threat show for me, as I’ve been obsessively listening to all three for the last […]
Everyone has their own different methods of finding new music. Sometimes it’s a nudge from a friend, or a curated playlist on Spotify, or a trusted radio host that you can turn to on a daily basis. For me, Ive always been able to find new and interesting bands thanks to whoever curates the song […]
“Who is keeping the blues alive?” Its a commonly asked question among older generations. And answers seem to differ depending on who talk to. Some say its already a dead genre. Others look at the 5 year old guitar prodigy playing in dive bars. But blues musicians are not hard to find these days. You […]
Of all the instruments on stage, everything from synths to pads to guitars, perhaps the most versatile instrument was Nick Murphy’s voice. Ranging from blusey (ala (Lover) You dont treat me no good) to a low and quiet mumble (Some People) The Australian singer showed his diverse music styles to the packed crowd at First […]
April 10, 2019 Our cab driver on the previous evening told us, “You haven’t been to Nashville if you haven’t gone down to Broadway St”. Personally, I’d rather hang in dives and dumps than Blake Sheldon’s bar – or especially Kid Rock’s bar. That aside, that’s not what tonight was about. First trip to Nashville. […]
I’m typically not one for meetings. Especailly meetings that start at 10 o’clock at night. But if that meeting is at First Avenue? Well, that is a different story. A sold out crowd at First Avenue felt the same way I did, attending the Better Oblivian Community Center show last wednesday. The band is the […]
It isnt often that someone like Bob Weir makes it a point to stop and play In Minnesota. Weir, one of the founding members of The Grateful Dead and now touring with the popular Dead and Company Group, formed a trio with bassist and famed producer Don Was, and former Ratdog Drummer Jay Lane. The […]
It’s been dreary here in the Twin Cities. Lots of clouds, rain, and cold. It feels more like Seattle than it does Minneapolis. And as such, Minnesotans are starting to feel it. The warmer coats have come out of storage, and the wool socks have made their way to the top of the drawer. The […]
