PICK OF THE WEEK: moe. & Leftover Salmon – Saturday, July 28th – Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO

Why You Should Go: It is a great opportunity to catch two titans of the Jamband world on the same bill at the best outdoor amphitheatre in the world. Leftover Salmon is back on top of the Jamgrass world after taking a break for a couple of years and their Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass is bound to be as energetic as ever. Frontman Vince Herman’s onstage antics are always entertaining and this reuinted line-up features some of the best bluegrass pickers playing today in the persons of Noam Pikelny (Banjo) and Drew Emitt (Mandolin).

moe. will close the show with a set that is bound to delve deep into their 17 year career. The front page of their website reads: Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan and Gram Parsons…from hard rock to melodic country, moe can write songs and they can play the bejesus out of them live. They can deliver live energy to a studio recording and are equally comfortable playing textural musical landscapes or balls to the wall guitar solos. By not limiting their songwriting to preconceived genres, moe. are a rarity in today’s pop music culture. See them live, Buy their album, or live an unfulfilled life.

So whether you want to get down to the zany Bluegrass of Leftover Salmon at Sunset or you’re hoping for some epic jams from Buffalo New York’s moe. Red Rocks is the place to be on Saturday night.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
