PICK OF THE WEEK: My Morning Jacket – Friday & Saturday, January 12th & 13th – Ogden Theater, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: My Morning Jacket is by all acounts one of the best live bands touring today and their recent live release (CD/DVD) OKONOKOS proves it. Their incindiary blend of Southern Rock and Heavy Rock-N-Roll is captured in all of it’s glory on this collection. The catchy guitar hooks, throbbing rhythm section and powerful vocals force the listener to take notice. This 5 piece has all the power you could hope to pack onto one stage.

While they have been around for several years now they are just reaching the top of their game. They have recently shared the stage with The Boston Pops, recorded in Levon Helm’s studio and even had Pink Floyd lighting genius Mark Brickman run the board for their DVD filming. ?All together they are a force to be reckoned with on today’s rock circuit. Catch them in the newly rennovated Ogden before they graduate to the Fillmore or worse . . .

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!
