I’m Back

After a couple weeks off for vacation and a business trip I am back to posting. The vacation was to Hawaii and it was fantastic. I have been a little out of the live music loop for a little while but this week will jumpstart things. I was looking forward to Viva Voce at the Hi-Dive tonight but apparently that show has been cancelled. Very dissapointing. Tomorrow night TV On The Radio will rock the Ogden and then String Cheese will stage the final Winter Carnival at the Fillmore on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. There’s a lot going on and I am thrilled to be back reporting on it all.

PS – If you haven’t checked out Endless Highway: The Music of the Band do so immediately. The standout contributions include My Morning Jacket doing “It Makes No Difference,” Jack Johnson doing “I Shall Be Released,” Widespread Panic doing “Chest Fever,” and Steve Reynolds doing one of my favorite Band songs: “Stagefright.” It is a truly a great tribute album that is worth picking up.


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!
