PICK OF THE WEEK: Robert Plant & The Band of Joy – Wednesday April 27th – The Fillmore

Why You Should Go: Robert Plant was the vocalist and front man for one of the most accomplished bands in the history of Rock-N-Roll, Led Zeppelin.  Though that band came to an end in 1980, Plant’s vocals are still as compelling as ever: the tone, capable of everything from heartbreaking tenderness to a trademark edginess, the phrasing that lends a distinct urgency, and, perhaps most importantly, the sense of poetry, of mystery.

Backing Plant on this tour is the absolutely phenomenal Band of Joy that features Patty Griffin, Darrel Scott on acoustic guitar, mandolin and a variety of other instruments, Byron House on bass, Marco Giovino on drums and percussion, and the incomparable Buddy Miller on electric guitar, 6-string bass, and mandoguitar.

Opening the evening is a band that has headlined the Fillmore on their own, The North Mississippi Allstars.  Their bluesy southern rock sound is a great pairing with Robert Plant and is sure to get the crowd more than adequately warmed up before the legend takes 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!
