  • A rowdy crowd of rockers reliving their youth and a squeakier group in their prime came out last Friday night to party with The Darkness. A perfect mix of devotees in leather jackets, long hair and tattoos lined the barricade near the front of the stage at The Summit Music Hall.  The Darkness is considered by many to be a “glam rock" band and while that may or may not be true, "Glam” IS rock, the ability to sell it is talent, and The Darkness has that in spades.

  • With outrageous stage antics that include gaudy leotards stolen from Steven Tyler's wardrobe, leaps and splits borrowed from David Lee Roth, and an ear-piercing falsetto copped from Freddie Mercury himself, England's The Darkness have single-handedly resurrected the rather unfashionable sounds and attitudes of late-'70s hard rock for an unsuspecting generation.

  • The mood in Denver was a bit mellow last Saturday after the Broncos disappointing performance in their playoff game earlier in the day and, frankly, the bitter cold weather didn't help warm spirits much.  What did help was a great performance from Assembly Of Dust at Summit Music Hall.  They work so hard at what they do and while they aren't a household name, they should be.  It was great to dance alongside people out here in Colorado who recognize how great they are!

  • Assembly of Dust has a sound that recalls the likes of The Band and Neil Young, but they have taken that early 70's Americana sound and put their own contemporary spin on it.  While they haven't played Colorado in nearly three years, the band, fronted by former Strangefolk frontman Reid Genauer, should have no problem packing The Summit Music Hall when they come to town this weekend.

  • In classic Punk Rock fashion, Soda Jerk Presents gave ticket holders four bands for the price of two last Thursday.  Years ago, Punk was played so fast, and most bands only knew a few chords, and had fewer songs yet.  Back then, you had to have five or six bands on the schedule just to fill up two hours.  This was not to be the case when the Aggrolites and Street Dogs headed up a bill that blended several different genres with Punk sensibilities over the course of a lineup that represented a collective 13 or more albums.

  • No stranger to the underground Electronic scene, Bluetech has been blowing minds since the release of his first album in 2003. Since then he has slowly been gaining popularity and over the past few years has become a large name among Down-Tempo fans due to his one of a kind approach to production.  Last week he wowed a wide-eyed crowd at The Summit Music Hall with a set of what can only be described as “underwater, mescaline, space boogie.”
