PICK OF THE WEEK: Neil Young – Monday & Tuesday, November 5th & 6th – The Wells Fargo Theater, Denver, CO

NOTE: These shows actually happen Monday and Tuesday of next week but I want to make sure that I give people the opportunity to get tickets if they haven’t already done so.

Why You Should Go: Honestly, if you have to ask, don’t spend the money. The fact is that Neil Young is one of the most talented and creative songwriters of his generation. He has been writing and recording for more than 40 years and Young is still going strong. Prairie Wind in 2005 was one of the strongest albums of his long and storied career and he has followed it up with another critically acclaimed album in the shape of Chrome Dreams II, the follow up to the long lost late seventies album that never hit shelves.

Youg is a legend and seeing him live is a treat. After nearly dying of a brain Anuerysm 2 years ago, we are lucky to have him with us and touring. His live shows are always memorable and with a new album on the shelves Young is sure to break out all the stops and thrill all who are lucky enough to see him perform.

Young’s wife, Pegi will be opening the show supporting her recent self titled album. Young has been known to join his wife during her opening sets, so arrive early if you don’t want to miss any of this legend on the stage.

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!
