PICK OF THE WEEK: Eric Bachmann – Saturday January, 12th – The Hi-Dive, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: Eric Bachmann is one of the most powerful singer songwriters currently playing on the indie folk scene today. With simple arrangements and heartfelt lyrics, Bachmann presents his work confidently on the stage in a way that continues to win over new fans.

He began his musical life in the post punk Archers of Loaf before forming his most critically successful project, Crooked Fingers. Though Crooked Fingers is currently on an indefinite hiatus to allow Bachmann to focus on his solo material, his sets are still chock full of the bands material.

Despite being a resident of the area, Bachmann hasn’t performed a concert in Denver since September of 2006. He has toured the country with Josh Ritter and Neko Case and even played a run in Europe supporting Two Gallants. The Hi-Dive is an intimate space that should play host to Bachmann’s personality and musical style very well. Come welcome him home and encourage him to play more local gigs.

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!
