PICK OF THE WEEK: My Morning Jacket – Thursday, August 4th – Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Why You Should Go: My Morning Jacket are widely regarded as one of the greatest live bands of their generation.  From performing at Madison Square Garden to being nominated for a Grammy with their last album Evil Urges, their achievements show no signs of slowing down.

Since forming in 1998 the group has boldly tackled new genres and ideas on each album, maintaining a perpetual evolution that is thrilling, innovative, and impossible to predict. Frontman Jim James has an immediately recognizable voice that is iconic in its own right.  Soulful and enigmatic all at once, his golden tenor can command an audience equally with heartbreaking fragility or unfettered power.  My Morning Jacket’s spectacle of a live show has become the stuff of legend, and the band has become a staple headliner at countless major music festivals.

The quintet’s sixth studio album, Circuital, was recorded almost entirely live to capture an honest spirit and human spontaneity throughout the listening experience.  The new songs are destined to sound electrifying in a live setting, and the guys are excited to perform their latest batch of anthems for fans across the globe.

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!
