PICK OF THE WEEK: Bo Diddley – Friday, March 2nd – The Soiled Dove Underground, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: Because Bo Diddley is a legend and at 78 years old he is still going strong. He is the man who redefined the electric blues when he burst onto the scene in the mid 50’s and helped blues music transition into Rock-n-Roll. He has led a storied career and was even banned from the Ed Sullivan show after only one appearance.

You may recognize Diddley’s signature hat or rectangular “Cigar Box” style guitar that he has been playing for most of his career but you are sure to recognize some of his more famous tunes. “Hey Bo Diddley” and “Who Do You Love” have stood the test of time and been covered by countless artists over the years.

Diddley is an aging master and the intimate confines of The Soiled Dove Underground is the perfect place to expose yourself to a musical history lesson of sorts as Diddley is sure to rock his way through some classics on Friday night.

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!
