Happy New Year!

As we enter 2007 I look forward to another year of amazing live music along the Front Range. In fact the Calendar is already filling up. Next Monday will take us to Fort Collins to catch the great American lyricist Randy Newman perform the first of 8 shows at Lincoln Center and then on the 12th and 13th My Morning Jacket come to town followed by a 4 night run by Jamband stalwarts moe. at venues around Denver and Boulder from the 24th – 27th. This is just to name a few.

I have been MIA for the past couple of weeks on this blog due to the Holidays and the enormous amount of real work I have had on my plate. I did pull together features on My Morning Jacket and moe. that I will post over the next week or so. The only live show I caught in the last 3 weeks was Lotus with DJ Harry at Quixotes in Denver. I have got to tell you that while Lotus is a very tight electro-jam outfit, DJ Harry stole the show for me. If you haven’t seen him in the last year or so, brave the snow and head out to check him out. He had a packed house at Quixotes dancing their little white asses off to some tasty house music last week during the blizzard. I’ll post a review of that show shortly.

So Happy New Year and I hope you make a resolution to get out there to support the live musicians and the venues that make the music scene along the front range so vibrant.


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!
