PICK OF THE WEEK: Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos – Wednesday, November 29th – The Larimer Lounge, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos were the darlings of the 2005 South Park Music Festival here in Colorado. Since then they have signed a record deal with V2 Music and been touring all over the country. Their debut record The Dust of Retreat is a playful blend of Pop and Indie Folk that weaves in just the right amount of grit.

Live, frontman Richard Edwards runs the show with a cast of characters backing him up. The band’s unique arrangements employ Rhodes Piano, a healthy dose of Trumpet and even some Cello to soften the mood a bit. The bands energy on the stage hints at their youth but makes for a fantastic performance. My guess you will walk out humming at least one song and you might even have a CD in hand.

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!
