The Ringers are very highly strung

Wayne Krantz dishes on the perils of ‘the supergroup’

By Dave Kirby
Anyone familiar with Wayne Krantz’s threedecade career (Berklee College of Music grad, sideman to the likes of Donald Fagan and Randy Brecker, a taciturn and artistically feral solo jazz/fusion/avant artist) might therefore find it surprising that the guitarist would be paired up with two other guitarists, Jimmy Herring and Michael Landau, in something that looks an awful lot like … one of those things.

The ‘Fifth’ for the 10th

Boulder Chamber Orchestra tackles its biggest-ever challenge: ‘dun dun dun dun’

By Peter Alexander
Part of the challenge is that the “Fifth Symphony” is such a well known piece of music. The opening contains probably the most famous four notes in all classical music, and it has been recorded literally hundreds of times, by orchestras great and small. Virtually everyone in the audience has heard it many times, often by the greatest interpreters of the past 75 years or more.

An orchestra of one

By Brian Palmer
ZoŽ Keating is not your typical cellist.

But as much as she relishes her ongoing creative endeavor, she sometimes has a love-hate relationship with it.

By Nadia Mishkin
Gypsy-punk pioneers Gogol Bordello are touring now with an album that’s an athem to and call to action for gypsy punks worldwide. If you’re unfamiliar with the band, the simplest way to describe them is that they thrive on total chaos. And Gogol Bordello will invade the Boulder Theater on April 29.

Postcards from fault line

How West Water Outlaws spent their spring break

By Dave Kirby
While WWO has earned its road cred grinding out mini-tours of southeastern clubs — Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina — and becoming practically familiar faces in Austin, where the band has some family connections, the West Coast was an entirely new market for them. We wondered if Rooker had to spend much time disabusing their newfound Cali fans of the notion that Colorado produced little beyond bluegrass and club music.

Music

Riff Raff has made a name for himself as a “shamelessly eccentric” white rapper rocking corn-rows and pimpedout grills, often custommade with bling-bling to match the color of his hair.
