  • Do you remember a time when you cranked the stereo up as loud as you could get away with to drown out the world and wallow in your teen angst?  A time when Motley Crue was shouting at the devil because Satan could no longer hear them, having been deafened by the emergence of thrash metal? Two of the genre's biggest names, Slayer and Anthrax, invaded the Fillmore and it was one hell of a night!

  • Colfax is the street that doesn't sleep; open 24 hours there is always something going on.  Last week the Gypsy Punk of Gogol Bordello poured out the venue doors of the Ogden Theater. Inside the crowd jumped with fists in the air as front-man Eugene Hütz whipped the crowd up into a frenzy with a stage presence that was very reminiscent of Iggy Pop. A whirling dervish, he moved in and out of the seven other band members as they played.

  • After a long week of Halloween celebrations, the mood of the crowd at the Fillmore Auditorium last Friday seemed perfect for a downtempo evening of grooving with UK Electronica Producer Bonobo and his highly anticipated live band. No one was complained about the presence of dance floor space--it was cozy, but not claustrophobic, and on Halloween weekend in Denver, that is a rarity. Costumes, of course, abounded, and smiles too as the fans filed in and readied themselves for an evening of soulful music.

  • A crowd dressed in scally caps, punk rock T's, boots, bracers, and the occasional kilt packed the floor of The Fillmore last week when the Dropkick Murphys brought their own brand of Irish drinking music to Denver.  They opened up their set with “For Boston,” a cover of the Boston College fight song, as a quick tip of the hat to their hometown and all that it had been through recently with the Boston Marathon bombings and then we were off to the races as they played the hits, both old and new.
