PICK OF THE WEEK: David Wilcox – Saturday, August 25th – Chautauqua Auditorium, Boulder, CO

Why You Should Go: David Wilcox is an anomoly in the music world. His unique grasp of communication shines through in both his songwriting and his performance style. Almost exclusively a Solo performer these days, Wilcox effortlessly commands the attention of every eye in the room with his captivating storytelling approach to his craft.

He rose to prominence in this area when KBCO latched onto “Eye of The Hurricane” that is featured on his 1989 album How Did You Find Me Here. A signature tune of sorts, Hurricane showcases his poingant lyrics and masterful guitar work. Since that break through album, Wilcox has recorded and released 11 outstanding albums. Most recently Vista that was released in 2006 on Boulder’s own What Are Records? label.

The rustic vibe of The Chautauqua Auditorium is a perfect setting to witness a David Wilcox performance. As summer winds to a close, I can think of few better ways to spend a Saturday evening than by listening to David Wilcox as the cool evening breeze flows through the old barn at Chautauqua.

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!
