  • Last Saturday night, the Fillmore Auditorium was as full as I’d seen it in years as droves of tireless revelers showed up to support two bands who have both previously played sold-out headlining shows in Denver. It was St. Patrick’s Day, and although most of this crowd had been drinking all day under the bright Colorado sky, they definitely weren’t slowing down.

  • Last Friday night, Anders Osborne stopped into The Bluebird Theater on historic Colfax Avenue for an intimate solo acoustic show.  Typically accompanied by a bold backing band, an Anders Osborne show is usually loud. This show from Anders would be different - with no drums, no bass, and no one except Anders Osborne.  He looked strong and happy to be playing, so hopefully we’ll keep getting the opportunity to join Anders in this solo acoustic setting, as it really suits his music, his spirit, and his fans.

  • Last Saturday Pigeons Playing Ping Pong threw down a show at The Ogden Theatre that left many in the sold-out crowd gasping for air.  After a rousing open set from Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers, Pigeons took the stage for their largest headlining show to date to a deafening roar and immediately dropped into "Walk Outside" from their fan favorite 2016 album Pleasure. It was a coming out party of sorts for Pigeons and they did not disappoint.  These boys are the real deal and they will be on the scene for a long time to come.

  • Last Saturday, Monophonics rolled into town and took over Cervantes' Other Side with their one-of-a-kind blend of 70's Funk, Soul, and Rock.  From the moment they took the stage, Kelly Finnigan and the rest of the band commanded the attention of every eyeball in the room.  There were fists pumping in the air as they cranked through "There's a Riot Going On" from their trippy 2012 gem In Your Brain, and when they slowed things down for "Beggin'" the lovers in the room got close.

  • First of all, before we get too far down the road, each and every person who was in Steamboat for WinterWonderGrass last weekend is to be commended.  From employees and organizers to fans and musicians, this was a dedicated bunch.  Temperatures plunged down into the single digits as they worked, danced, poured, and played, but those who played music up on the big stage have to be singled out as the most hardcore of them all.  While many could bundle up and put on the heaviest of ski gloves to keep fingers from freezing solid, those musicians had to keep their fingers dancing on the strings, skins, and keys in a vain attempt to keep the blood flowing.
