PICK OF THE WEEK: The Motet Plays The Talking Heads – Friday, June 24th – The Gothic Theatre

Why You Should Go: What could be better than one of the funkiest bands around playing the music of one of the greatest bands ever.  This is what will happen late Friday night and early Saturday morning when The Motet revives one of their most loved Halloween performances when they play the music of the Talking Heads at The Gothic Theatre after Widespread Panic at Red Rocks. It promises to be a truly special occasion as the band will be joined by none other than Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident on keys, Fuzz of Deep Banana Blackout on guitar, Jans Ingber on vocals and percussion, Liza Oxnard on vocals and guitar, and Carrie Sangiovanni on background vocals. Filling out the roster of usual suspects is Joey Porter on keys, Paul McDaniel on bass, and captain Dave Watts on drums. This is the same group who performed on Jamcruise 8 two years ago!! Get ready for some late night madness!

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!
