    Umphrey’s McGee raises a toast to Colorado music fans

    By Sonia Amodeo Amid a seemingly relentless tour schedule that’s been going on since 1997, Umphrey’s McGee is back in town and ready to play an intimate show for Boulder on Thursday night.

    Eminence Ensemble perform ‘Queen Bee’

    Eminence Ensemble perform “Queen Bee” 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.
