Band geeks rule

March Fourth marches to the beat of its own drums

By Christian James Wilhelm
It’s not impossible to explain March Fourth, though it certainly is a challenge. To see the band play is to have joyous percussion and bass work into your ear canals as you find yourself surrounded by dancers and acrobats. Everyone wears intricate, colorful costumes adding to the audible liveliness.

We be culture jamming

Details, details

For Boulder-native siblings Caleb and Kato Kronen, life’s too short to listen to lousy music in lame clothing

By Dave Kirby
Caleb Kronen may be a bit more prone to second-guessing the final mix than most guitarists. A hearing science major at the University of Colorado, he is leading an honors thesis research project this summer at the CU Hearing Research Laboratory and freely admits that thinking about sound, how it gets created and captured, how people hear it, is a vital component to the band’s craft.

Boulder gets new queer hosted dance night

By Josh Gross
Boulder likes to think of itself as a tolerant community. Local musician DJ Chive would — respectfully — disagree. “I don’t think there’s a place in Boulder you could go out in drag, comfortably,” Chive says. “I don’t think there’s a place you could go out and make out with your girlfriend [as a queer person] and feel comfortable.”

Forty years of festivation

New Planet Bluegrass book documents the evolution of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and so much more

By Joel Dyer
The book is clearly intended to be a celebration of the ongoing success of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, one of America’s greatest annual musical events. But as I explored the rich historical photos, read the essays and revisited the musical lineups from every year since the festival kicked off in 1974, I realized the book is much more than that. It is a lens focused on the evolutionary trail of not only the festival, but the people who attend, the musicians who perform and the mountain town that has played host for four decades.
