    George Thorogood still bad to the bone

    By Quentin Young The ’80s were a good time for mainstream blues guitar. For star power, you had Eric Clapton. For firepower, Stevie Ray Vaughan. For showmanship, you had ZZ Top. For style, Robert Cray. But if straight-up, snarling blues rock was more your thing, you had George Thorogood. His most famous song is about how bad to the bone he is, and his other greatest hits are drinking anthems. His voice sounds like someone revving a Harley, and his […]

  • This concert is guaranteed not to stink

    This concert is guaranteed not to stink

    By Aimee Heckel If there are two things that can evoke the strongest emotions and memories, it’s a scent and a song. Longmont women are bringing the two together for an unusual concert. Call it scent entertainment. Or music that smells great. Or call it typical Sharon Glassman (about whom very little seems typical). Her “aromatic music” event kicks off at 6 p.m. Oct. 4 at the new (as in just opened Thursday) Colorado Aromatics Store, 340 Lashley St., Unit […]

    Boulder’s Big Gigantic gets even bigger

    By Quentin Young For the third year, Big Gigantic plans to bring its brand of EDM to Red Rocks for a two-night event it calls “Rowdytown.” For Dominic Lalli, the sax-playing producer half of the band, describing the event is simple enough: “It’s just like literally the biggest party of the year.” Any questions? The Boulder duo, which includes Jeremy Salken on drums, came together in 2008. At one time, Lalli slung coffee at the Espressoria in Boulder and Salken […]

  • Second Story Garage: The Motet

    Second Story Garage:
    The Motet

    The Motet perform “The Fountain” at Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colorado. The Motet has been around for 16 years, but it seems as if they’re just bursting onto the scene. The Boulder funk masters recently released their seventh album. They self-titled it because, for the first time, they wrote it collaboratively and, they say, “The group has finally become what it has striven to be throughout its existence.” The band performed a triumphant set at a sold-out Red Rocks […]
