Why You Should Go: Love ’em or hate ’em, Phish is one of the most innovative bands performing today both in terms of the musical terrain they cover during their performances and in terms of their light show.  While the four men on stage may focus on making their instruments sound the best they possibly can as the music twist, turns, and darts through strange passages, their longtime lighting director Chris Kuroda fills the role of the 5th band member as he dazzles the crowd with brilliant light shows that are nearly perfectly synchronized with the music coming from the stage.  It’s a sight to behold to say the least.

Phish’s 2010 outing was named one of the “25 Must-See Summer Tours” by SPIN, which praised the band’s “epic, musically adventurous shows,” while The Denver Post called their return to Telluride “an event that ranks on the very top shelf of the 27-year-old band’s trophy case.”  This weekend’s concerts will mark the band’s first-ever performances at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

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!
