The legalized gambling, not the children's song

Bingo spills out of the parlor and onto the stage

Dropkick Murphys still going strong with latest album

Dropkick Murphys (DKM) are back, and their timing couldn’t be better. Their new album, Going Out In Style, dropped on March 1. As one of America’s most talented and popular Celtic-rock bands — one of the few and proud to feature bagpipes and electric guitar on most every song — Dropkick Murphys know a thing or two about their fan base. It’s no wonder the new album came out mere weeks before St. Patrick’s Day.

Peanuts, Cracker Jacks, perfidy and laughs

‘The Catch’ gets a hold of one and knocks the cover off

By Gary Zeidner
Do you enjoy plays or musicals (Sure, we all do!) but can never convince your husband, wife, lover, son, daughter, friend, co-worker or mail delivery person to join you for a show?

Social Distortion’s latest will anger mal-adjusted fogies, please well-adjusted ones and everyone else

By Gary Zeidner
Social Distortion’s latest, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, is a maturity test of sorts. After all, Social D has been playing its unique brand of hard luck punk rock since the early 1980s. Give any band — let alone a punk band — 30 years, and they’re either going to experience some sonic evolution or they’re going to become, at best, one-note redundancies or, at worst, idiotic self-parodies.

Good golly, Miss Dolly

Boulder’s Dinner Theatre puts on a classic and succeeds

By Gary Zeidner
Mere weeks ago candles glowed warmly in menorahs. Christmas lights twinkled on eaves and living room trees. The riotous colors of Kwanzaa accompanied the celebration of Umoja and Kuumba.

Cavalia canters into Denver

By Gary Zeidner
John Elway walks into a bar. The bartender asks, Why the long face? No wait. I mean, a horse walks into a bar, and the bartender asks, Whatll you have, Mr. Elway? Nope, thats still not it. Lets see.

Super spoofers

The Denver Center delivers a good evening of Hitchcock

By Gary Zeidner
As mentioned above, the inimitable Sam Gregory plays Hannay. Every other character comes to life thanks to Victoria Mack, Rob Nagle and Larry Paulsen. (You might guess that Mack is charged with acting every female character, but both Nagle and Paulsen get bewigged and bebosommed as well.
