    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 […]

    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 […]

    Second Story Garage: Dead Winter Carpenters

    Dead Winter Carpenters perform “Good Old Time” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Dead Winter Carpenters share a certain country-rock duality with their world-famous California compatriots, the Eagles, but the spirit of the Carpenters’ music is more mountain trail than rural road. Maybe that’s why the band is gaining fans in Colorado, one of its stomping grounds. The Carpenters were in Colorado in late February for several shows in the region, including a set at eTown […]

    Second Story Garage: Bradford Lee Folk and the Bluegrass Playboys

    Bradford Lee Folk and the Bluegrass Playboys perform “Soil and Clay” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. There aren’t many farmers left in the country, let alone bluegrass musicians who are actually farmers. But Bradford Lee Folk has always been the real deal. He first came to national attention in the early 2000s as part of Open Road, a Colorado bluegrass group that was noted not just for its instrumental and vocal skills but for how […]

    Brian Wilson happy old Beach Boys pal is on album, tour

    By John Carucci Associated Press NEW YORK — While Brian Wilson doesn’t plan to officially reunite with the surviving members of The Beach Boys, having an old friend sing on a new record certainly provided a comfort zone. Former bandmate Al Jardine, who sang lead vocals on Wilson’s 1965 chart-topping single “Help Me, Rhonda,” appears on a few tracks on his recently released “No Pier Pressure,” and Wilson couldn’t be happier. “He sang my song ‘Sail on, Sailor’ in 1972, […]

  • Zappa Plays Zappa featuring Dweezil Zappa performs the music of Frank Zappa on Thursday, April 23, at Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver.

    Dweezil Zappa brings dad’s music to Colorado

    By Quentin Young The Frank Zappa song “Big Swifty” is a shape-shifting, rhythmically complex piece of jazz-fusion composition from the 1972 album Waka/Jawaka. Frank’s son, guitar virtuoso Dweezil Zappa, has made a career in Zappa Plays Zappa out of re-creating the music of his father, who died in 1993. When Dweezil sat down to suss out the various parts of “Big Swifty,” he came upon an instrumental harmony that left him stumped. “In the stereo mix it’s hard to distinguish […]

    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.
