  • Saturday at the Ogden Theatre was expected to be a night of good ole' Bluegrass.  The Infamous Stringdusters have earned quite a following in Colorado, going head-to-head with Colorado locals such as Leftover Salmon.  The 'Dusters, hailing from Virginia, came to Denver last weekend with gusto, ready to impress the Rocky Mountain Bluegrass fans.  The crowd was just large enough that there was plenty of room to dance comfortably.

  • The Motet is celebrating their sixth studio release, 'Dig Deep,' at The Fillmore on Saturday! Simply put, this is a world-class ensemble that whips audiences into a whirlwind using sheer impromptu force. The rhythms are spontaneous and textured and the beats are hard driving. The band uses this energy to create a rapport between the audience and themselves that is rarely seen in today's world of manufactured rock.

  • Just like last year, the first night of String Cheese Incident's New Year's run at 1st Bank Center was relatively sparsely attended.  The room was a little over half-full and though it allowed for plenty of room to dance and move freely from the floor to the stands, the room lacked the electric energy that can make a String Cheese show such a magical experience.  There were flashes of brilliance and some powerful horn fueled jams, but when all was said and done this was just an average incident.

  • There have been many in-stores at Twist & Shout over the years.  Some, like Trey Anastasio and String Cheese Incident, were more or less ticketed affairs that saw lines stretch around the block and scalpers get top-dollar for wristbands.  Others, like Tuesday's intimate acoustic set with Mike Doughty, are much more mellow, laid back events.  Though it only lasted 30 minutes, the ten song set showcased Doughty then and now and satisfied the hardcore fans in attendance.

  • Outside eTown Hall on Saturday night there was none of the usual commotion of a String Cheese Incident show.  There were very few people outside on the street, there were no fingers in the air, and not a single person selling beers or grilled cheese.  In short it was a bit disorienting.  Though the event wasn't publicized in advance outside a select group of invitees, a few hardcore fans had made it in the door and were a welcomed sight up along the lip of the stage as they danced, sang and pumped their fists in the air all night.
