    Second Story Garage: Gasoline Lollipops

    Gasoline Lollipops perform “Death” live at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Clay Rose, frontman of Gasoline Lollipops, pictures Jesus as sporting Elvis-like sideburns. It’s not the most conventional conception of the son of God, but it’s an entertaining one, and it somehow jibes with what it’s like to listen to the Lollipops. The Boulder alt-country band gives its EPs names such as Death and Resurrection, and its songs bear the mark of hard truths and sin. […]

    decker. perform “Spades” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. The lyrical references on decker.’s latest album, Patsy, run from Ol’ Dirty Bastard to Lee Harvey Oswald, and in between is some sharp thinking expressed in cutting lines. Decker.’s view of the world is expansive and unforgiving. “Patsy,” the album’s title song, was inspired by Oswald, and it gives a first-person account as if told by Kennedy’s assassin. It provocatively asks the listener to empathize with this […]

    Second Story Garage: Grisman, Leslie, Hargreaves & Smith

    Grisman, Leslie, Hargreaves & Smith perform “Shrimp Island Reel” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Bluegrass emphasizes tradition. For all the proliferation of jamgrass and its variants, especially in Colorado, the old ways of bluegrass have an inherently powerful pull that keep successive players from growing too far from the roots. But the quartet Grisman, Leslie, Hargreaves & Smith does much to expand the possibilities of a bluegrass lineup. Bluegrass songs are essentially country songs, and […]

    Second Story Garage: Cabinet

    Cabinet perform “Celebration” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Pappy Biondo has a nonchalant, almost cavalier approach to fulfilling his vocal duties in Cabinet. He opens his mouth to sing, but not much beyond the necessary amount. His delivery sometimes has a talk-sing quality to it. But it’s not as if he’s being lazy or seems bored. He’s being true to the band’s overall vibe, which is half-front porch, half-after midnight. Cabinet is from the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre […]

The Chicago-based band is popular among jamgrass fans throughout the country and is a regular visitor to bluegrass hot spots of the Front Range. They stopped by the Garage on a recent visit to the state with a new lineup and songs from their new album, Slow Street, due out in May. […]

    Second Story Garage: Intuit

    Intuit perform “Freedom Ringing” at Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colorado. Intuit’s performance in the Garage has a mystical feel about it. If nothing else, the sense came from the jar of “holy water” that the Boulder band brought to add to our collection of trinkets. As Chloe B. Watkins and Neil Sullivan explained to Quentin during their interview, Neil captured the water from the Arapaho Glacier via Caribou Springs the morning of our session. The half-filled mason jar represented […]

    Second Story Garage: Aspen Hourglass

    Aspen Hourglass perform their song “Who Needs” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Most people don’t play guitar like Grayson Erhard does. That’s because most people can’t play guitar like he does. He often uses a difficult two-hands-on-the-fretboard technique that Eddie Van Halen first popularized but which players such as Erhard have developed beyond pop-rock vulgarity. In the Fort Collins band Aspen Hourglass, Erhard is joined by two similarly accomplished instrumentalists — Elvin Holderfield on keys […]

    Amy Winehouse director: We all share blame for her death

    By Jill Lawless Associated Press CANNES, France — Amy Winehouse was many things: artist, icon, victim of celebrity. For London-born director Asif Kapadia, she was basically the girl next door. Kapadia, who made award-winning documentary “Senna” about Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, lived and worked in some of the same north London neighborhoods as Winehouse. Like millions of others, he also watched with horrified fascination as the singer’s struggles with love, drugs and alcohol were splattered across the media in […]

    2015 Colorado summer concert guide

    By Quentin Young It’s summer concert time, and here’s the guide we believe will be of most use to you. We’ll leave it to the marketing behemoths behind Taylor Swift and U2 to tell you about their shows. We couldn’t quite find a place for the 1980s show, featuring Howard Jones and A Flock of Seagulls, scheduled for June 13 at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland. We ran out of room for the Denver Botanic Gardens concert series and […]

    Upslope’s Get Down features Taylor Frederick’s Funk Circus, Yawpers, A. Tom Collins

    By Quentin Young The craft brewers of Boulder County are some of the best purveyors of live music in the area. Oskar Blues’ Lyons location runs one of the town’s main stages for local acts. Left Hand Brewing in Longmont is responsible for some of the biggest concerts the city has seen in recent years. Upslope Brewing in Boulder is only 7 years old, but already it’s gaining a reputation for its musical side. Last year the company put together […]

    SPELLS is out of control at SXSW 2015

    Ben Roy sings “I’m out of control” in a way that makes you believe him. His band SPELLS, from Denver, dresses in matching clothes, but Roy’s approach to performance gives the impression of opposing order. He jumped off the stage at the start of the band’s Colorado Music Party set, and he didn’t look back. The Party took place at the 512 during SXSW 2015 in Austin, Texas.
