PICK OF THE WEEK: Soleside – Thursday, Friday & Saturday – May 17, 18, 19, Various Front Range Venues, CO

Why You Should Go: Soleside is the most recent side project / collaboration that String Cheese Incident Keyboard player Kyle Hollingsworth is participating in. Of all Hollingsworth’s side projects this one seems to have the most potential for groundbreaking musical exploration as he has teamed up with Hip-Hop pioneer Speech (Arrested Development) and turntablist extraordinaire DJ Logic. The three will be backed by guitarist Ryan Jalbert from the Motet and a rhythm section made up of Motet bassist Garrett Sayers and Denver area drummer Damien Hines. Together Soleside will smash jazz/funk, hip-hop and turntables into an explosive new style that defies categorization. “We will rock the funk out,” said Hollingsworth about the project.

As the end of String Cheese Incident nears it is exciting to see the members pursuing their own musical futures and even more exciting that we on the Front Range get to see the projects in their infant stages. Hollingsworth has consistently pushed the sound of String Cheese and will certainly survive musically once that band has run it’s course. Whether it will be with Soleside or another yet to be conceived of project remains to be seen but the one thing that is for sure is that this line-up will be a treat to see in the intimate confines of these three venues.

Randy Ray of Jambands.com recently conducted an interview with Kyle Hollingsworth and they discussed the origins of Soleside and touched on the end of The String Cheese Incident. To read it click here.

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!
