    Second Story Garage: Bud Bronson & The Good Timers

    Bud Bronson & The Good Timers perform “Vapedemic” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Bud Bronson & The Good Timers are hard not to like. They’re charismatic guys who play fun music, and their shows are, plainly speaking, a really good time. They have a Ridgemont High vibe that, in other hands, could be gimmicky but verges on the profound with them. They sing about hanging out with friends and digging on girls in such a […]

    Second Story Garage: Dirty Bourbon River Show

    Dirty Bourbon River Show perform “Ezmerelda” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Once the Dirty Bourbon River Show began playing in the Garage, all we had to do was close our eyes and we could almost feel the breeze off the Mississippi River and smell the crawfish and red beans and rice. The session by the New Orleans sextet was exactly the type of jazzy experience one would expect to hear on Bourbon Street and other […]

    Plume Varia perform their song “Keeps” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. It didn’t take long for Denver music observers to notice Plume Varia.

They have seen that attention only grow this year, including recent sets at the Westword Music Showcase and the Underground […]

Red Fox Run’s press contact, Dawn Duncan, told us the band takes the business side of music very seriously. When the quartet arrived at the Garage, they stepped out of their van all dressed simply, but effectively, in coordinated black outfits. “That was all them,” said Duncan, grinning. The Denver quartet’s professionalism carried through the session, which musically was marked by a […]

    Second Story Garage: Plain White T’s

    Tom Higgenson of Plain White T’s performs “Hey There Delilah” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. The Plain White T’s shot to fame in 2007 with “Hey There Delilah,” a two-time Grammy-nominated song that for some bands might have been one of those achievements never to be topped. But in subsequent releases, the T’s proved capable of consistent hit-making. Songs such as “1, 2, 3, 4” and “Rhythm of Love,” like “Delilah,” are melodic gems and […]

    Second Story Garage: Eminence Ensemble

    Eminence Ensemble perform “Here’s Your Sine” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. The term “prog rock” became almost an epithet after the post-Zappa excesses of the 1980s, when the misguided pursued intricacy for its own sake and soul was squeezed out of the musical fabric. Prog-rock bands never went away, just as liberals never went away in the 2000s. They were just avoiding a label that had accrued regrettable connotations. But the term has been reclaimed […]

    GRiZ hopes to funk up electronic music

    By Quentin Young Grant Kwiecinski said he was an unethusiastic student at Michigan State University when he started playing music at house parties in a co-ed co-op community. “That’s kind of where everything started,” Kwiecinski said as he pondered the progression of his music. Known to fans as GRiZ, the saxophone-playing electronic musician is preparing for a sold-out headlining show at Red Rocks Ampitheatre tonight. The Detroit native moved to Boulder three years ago and — along with Big Gigantic, […]

    Musicians rediscovering power of protest songs

    By Matt Miller HeyReverb.com A month after a white man walked into a black Charleston, S.C., church and killed nine people and wounded one other, Rhiannon Giddens released “Cry No More.” It’s a one-take video. The only instrumentation is Giddens solemnly banging a hand drum. A single camera circles Giddens in a church as she sings, “You have to help us fight it, but together we’ll be whole.” A casually dressed choir responds with “We can cry no more.” The […]
