• Second Story Garage: John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band

    John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band perform “Beautiful Sound” at Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colo. Less than a year ago, John Jorgenson recruited some friends to start a bluegrass band.

Jorgenson is known as a humbling guitarist, but he plays lots of instruments, and in the bluegrass band, he’s on mandolin. […]

    The Knew

    Denver band The Knew perform “Rally and Rumble” at Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colo. The Knew has a new sound. It’s nothing drastic. The Denver-based quartet still plays catchy, energetic rock. They’re trying to write more direct songs, though, and not fuss too much over clever tricks. You’ll hear it in the songs they played for us — “Rally and Rumble,” “Gypsy Red” and “Surrender” –  and they talk about it in their interview with Ashley. They also talk […]

    Ringo Deathstarr perform “Nowhere” at Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colo. Not long ago, Ashley spoke with Ringo Deathstarr guitarist Elliot Frazier about how he and his bandmates write music. “It never really goes any way twice, you know?” Frazier said. “For the last couple years … each one of us has been making tons of recordings at home, snippets of stuff. We’re lucky if we have a verse and chorus together in one demo. We’re pumping out sections of […]

    Kronen

    Kronen perform “Artfully Answered” at Second Story Garage in Boulder. Kronen is a Boulder rock band. Let’s start there. A lot of things make them stand out, though, things that together amount to what you could call “the Kronen way.” They experiment with unusual chord progressions, rhythms and arrangements. Drummer Kato Kronen plays on an electronic kit. They spell their name with an upside “r” when font options allow. Their page at bandcamp.com is as much about selling cool clothes […]
