PICK OF THE WEEK: Jackie Greene – Sunday, December 2nd – The Bluebird Theater, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: It isn’t often that a 21 year-old stops a room cold with a soulfully mature voice that calls to mind a young Tom Waits or Otis Redding. But, that is exactly what happened when Jackie Greene took the stage at an open mic in Sacramento in the fall of 2001. At that point Greene had been gigging in bars and selling records out of his trunk for the better part of five years. Things took a turn for him when DIG Music owner Marty DeAnda heard him that night that night in Sacremento, signed him within days and gave the youngster the chance to get his music out to a much broader audience.

Since DeAnda took a chance on him, Greene has put out three acclaimed albums and electrified audiences all over the country. His blues soaked style of rock and his electric stage presence often steals the show as the opening act for established performers such as B.B. King, Taj Mahal and Susan Tedeschi.

Don’t miss your opportunity to catch this fantastic performer in the intimate confines of The Bluebird Theater on Sunday night.

Stay tuned for a full length feature on Greene to be posted later in the week.

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!
