  • It’s easy to lump Houndmouth in with the folk-pop revival fueled by footstompers like Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers, but when it comes down to their live performances, incredible four-part harmonies and soaring bluesy guitar solos can silence any disdain you may have for romanticized roadways and cliched old west Americana imagery. Saturday was no exception for the sold-out crowd at the Bluebird Theater, who enjoyed an outstand set from the Indiana band.

  • Larimer Lounge, one of Denver’s favorite hipster-havens, played host to indie-rock quartet, Glass Animals, last Thursday night. To no one’s surprise, the up-and-coming band sold-out the small venue. Many were openly agitated by the lack of space, but once the music began, the humidity was embraced and the sweat began to drip. Dance moves ensued.  Look out for these guys at The Ogden or Fillmore sometime in the near future.

  • Twenty and thirtysomethings filled the Bluebird Theatre last Saturday evening for a rowdy night with Athens, Georgia alt-country/indie-rock band Futurebirds and opener Ark Life.

  • Sauntering out as the Shrines started playing, King Khan arrived ready to preach last weekend at The Larimer.  Wearing a gold blazer, black shirt and pants, and his trademark animal tooth necklace and pseudo-jerry curl, King Khan wears his intensity, literally.   This rotund, Canadian-Indian phenomenon created an evangelical, fantastical, and even dreamlike scene as he casually drop phrases like “slap your asses together” in the same tone a person might say “double espresso to go.”
