PICK OF THE WEEK: Polytoxic (Performing The Last Waltz) – Wednesday, November 22nd – Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: Polytoxic has thrown this party twice before and last time The Westword called the concert the best local band concert of the year. Polytoxic may have officially called it quits but they are coming back for one last hurrah with 30 guest musicians in tow.

If you have ever seen and enjoyed Martin Scorsese’s movie documenting the original Last Waltz this evening will not be a let down. Polytoxic performs most, if not all, of the original setlist and may even throw a couple of extra songs in. They have the chops to pull it off and with two previous performances under their belt this is bound to be the best yet.

The 30 guest musicians will include Aaron Rose, who plays the role of Neil Diamond, Jessica Goodkin, sings Van Morrison’s ‘Caravan,’ Christy Chambers playing Joni Mitchell and Cheyenne Kowal from the Reals reprising Emmylou’s role in the movie. The band has also asked the Toxic Horns to join them for evening to round out the sound.

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!
