PICK OF THE WEEK: Galactic w/ Dumpstaphunk & Orgone – Saturday March 19th – The Fillmore

Why You Should Go: Because Galactic is bringing Mardi Gras to the Mountains yet again.  It may be a little late this year, but they are going huge to make up for it.  The show will feature Galactic with and Special Guests Lyrics BornIvan Neville’s DumpstaphunkCyril Neville (of the Neville Brothers) and Corey Henry (of Rebirth Brass Band).  California’s up and coming funk visionaries Orgone will open the show.

The music of Galactic is a visionary mix, intertwining New Orleans sounds from jazz to brass band to funk and far beyond.  The five-man group comprised of drummer Stanton Moore, bassist Robert Mercurio, saxophonist/harmonica player Ben Ellman, keyboardist Richard Vogel, and guitarist Jeff Raines are the quintessential modern day New Orleans band and one of the funkiest outfits in the known universe.  This is truly a show not to be missed if you like to get your groove on to some of nastiest funk in the business.

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!
