PICK OF THE WEEK: Hello Kavita – Saturday, April 5th – The Larimer Lounge, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: You want to be able to say that you attended their first CD release party right here in Denver when your buddy from New York calls you up and tells you about this great new band, Hello Kavita, that he found, don’t you???

Seriously, these guys hail from right here in Denver and their debut album, And Then We Turned Sideways, has all the makings of a great record. Strong songwriting, beautiful instrumentation, and solid soulful vocals. Frontman and bandleader Corey Teruya seems to have snuck a peak at Jeff Tweedy’s blueprint for Wilco while also owing a healthy debt to the beautifully ragged alt-country that Neil Young was cranking out in the 70’s.

From beginning to end this album is well worth the 45 minutes you will invest in it. Whether you find yourself grooving to the America-like shuffle of “Midnight Sound” or shedding a tear in your beer as Teruya touches your soul with the ballad “Disappear,” you’ll be happy you did.

Catch these guys in the wonderfully dingy confines of the Larimer Lounge before they get scooped up by Ryan Adams or Wilco as an opener on the shed circuit.

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!
