    Interview: Sam Bush, Hops + Handrails headliner

    By Quentin Young Sam Bush is one of those rare artists who isn’t just great at his chosen medium but has changed the nature of the medium itself. He often is called the “father of newgrass” in reference to his role as a member of New Grass Revival, a 1970s bluegrass band that, adding rock and jazz influences, helped revolutionize the genre such that it spawned a sub-genre named after the band. Bush, who lives in Nashville, is a familiar […]

    Boulder’s Gasoline Lollipops to close out Frozen Dead Guy Days

    By Quentin Young One of the livelier aspects of Frozen Dead Guy Days, an annual celebration in Nederland based on a man named Bredo Morstoel who is cryogenically preserved, is its live music lineup, and the Gasoline Lollipops are one local band that seems well suited to the event. The alt-country band’s last EP was titled Death. The title song contains the growled refrain, “Death was all around.” The band is working on a new EP, to be called Resurrection. […]

Throughout is singer Emma […]

    A special year on tap for magical Mishawaka

    By Quentin Young The first time Dani Grant visited the Mishawaka Amphitheatre, a restaurant and live outdoor music venue on the Poudre River in the mountains west of Fort Collins, the natural beauty of the place was on full display. “Bighorn sheep were rooting and they attacked each other and cracked their horns together and it echoed through the canyon,” she recalled. “I was dumbfounded.” People have been falling under the spell of the Mish magic for a century.

    Na’an Stop returns to Boulder after nonstop tour

    By Quentin Young The guys in the band Na’an Stop live together. They create together. They tour together. And then they return from touring together and live together some more (one or two girlfriends live with them, too, it seems). They must really, really be friends. “We were friends first,” said Patrick Mulholland, who plays trombone and other instruments for the band. The five members met as students at the University of Colorado-Boulder. They’re not in school anymore. Now it’s […]
