REVIEW: Queens of the Stone Age at Red Rocks, 08-15-13

By David Accomazzo
Call me a fanboy. Call me obsessed. Call me what ever you'd like, but I'm of the firm belief that no band has made better rock music over the past decade-and-a-half than Queens of the Stone Age.

For the love of it

Lyle Lovett, always the maverick, is looking forward to being a musical free agent

By Alan Sculley
Lyle Lovett doesn’t let himself get tied down to a set list with his concerts. Yes, he has one, but it’s hardly set in stone. To script a show so tightly would rob Lovett of one of his main joys of performing, the flexibility to respond to the audience and play requests or to alter the selection of songs to fit the mood of the evening.

Gregory Alan Isakov: The horticultural hypnotist

Singer-songwriter's new album is spellbinding

By David Accomazzo
A vein of nature runs through troubadour Gregory Alan Isakov's music, fitting imagery for the singer-songwriter, who lived on a farm for several years. On his new album, The Weatherman, which dropped July 9, Isakov sings of “casting hooks off the California coast,” “plucking strings in the pouring rain” and “waiting in the wings while the trees undress.”

RockyGrass returns to Lyons

Festival brings the essence of bluegrass

By Joseph Wirth
Traditional bluegrass does not include any kind of electronic components or a modern-day drum kit, but its history throughout the United States and its improvisational nature has proven time and time again that bluegrass is one of the most complicated genres to perform.
