PICK OF THE WEEK: Cracker – Thursday & Friday, March 29th & 30th – The Soiled Dove Underground, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: David Lowery and Cracker have been rocking everything from mainstream radio to college burnouts for more than 15 years. Their brand of fuzzed out Alt-Country has paved the way for countless other bands to take their stab at fame.

According to Wikipedia (so take this with a grain of salt), Cracker claims that they are the only band ever to open for both The Ramones and The Grateful Dead. Take that for whatever it is worth, but it definately gives creedance to the ecclectic nature of their music.

The Soiled Dove should be a great venue to catch these veteran rockers doing their thing. After playing rooms like The Gothic and The Bluebird for years, Lowery and company have decided to play smaller venues in town in recent years. A year and a half ago they jammed themselves onto the tiny stage of The Lions Lair and this time it is the more roomy and much less seedy Soiled Dove.

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!
