That is not a critical judgment, by the way; it’s how the orchestra’s music director, Cynthia Katsarellis, thought about the season.]]> <![CDATA[Different recipe, same great taste]]> The band (which at this point consisted of Emmitt, Herman, Vann, accordion player Gerry Cavagnaro, drummer Michael Wooten and bassist Rob Galloway) plays the cover pretty faithfully for the first couple of verses. Then, suddenly, the drums cut out and Herman starts a spoken-word creed filled with local imagery, delivering a tale of.]]> <![CDATA[Making waves]]> In recognition of the concert date, the orchestra will play music that was inspired by heroes: Aaron Copland%uFFFDs %uFFFDFanfare for the Common Man,%uFFFD written to honor the unsung heroes of World War II; his %uFFFDLincoln Portrait,%uFFFD narrated by Boulder story-teller Bill Mooney; and Beethoven%uFFFDs %uFFFDSymphony No.]]> <![CDATA[Bonobo DJ Set]]> Over the last decade, Britishborn electronic musician Simon Green (Bonobo), made a name for himself by using elements of trip hop and acid jazz to slowly apply layers of samples, drum loops and melodies to build downtempo masterpieces, helping to lay the foundation of what would become chillwave.]]> <![CDATA[Blasters from the past]]> The kings of 90s space-rock are back on the touring circuit and coming to Colorado.]]> <![CDATA[Fun is what Cobra Starship does best]]> "We worked on this for over a year," he says. "It feels like something that is ripe and ready to entertain. We really want to turn it loose. It's exciting [what has] happened with the single. Hopefully, that will be indicative of what the record will do."]]> <![CDATA[The Yawpers: Going through changes]]> A slew of changes has rocked Nate Cook’s world this past year. His band, The Yawpers — rock ’n’ roll with a country twinge, starring two acoustic guitars and a drum set — is letting their record deal with Boulder label Adventure Records expire, and the band has leapt over to Colorado SpokesBUZZ, becoming the first non-Fort Collins band to sign with the FoCo-based nonprofit/label.]]> <![CDATA[Railroad Earth chugs into town for three nights]]> "Well, I’m not having the best of Sundays,” admitted Railroad Earth violinist/vocalist Tim Carbone when we caught up to him on Nov. 8. “My Giants just got beat 21-20 by the Chargers.” Ouch. Fourth loss in a row, and at the hands of that brat Philip Rivers. Darkness descends over the Tri-State area, and there’s not much joy either in the Broncos’ rickety perch atop the AFC West, here on the Front Range.]]> <![CDATA[The Ringers are very highly strung]]> 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.]]> <![CDATA[Breaking the mold]]> After beginning its career playing basements and sleeping in vans, Atlanta-based metal outfit Mastodon has, over the course of its roughly decade-long career, become one of the most important and dominating metal bands in the country.]]> <![CDATA[The anguish of slavery]]> A group of local musicians hosting an event at Boulder Mennonite Church are trying to combine Klezmer music with American music from the rural South in an attempt to explore the connections and common experiences between African- Americans and Jewish people.]]> <![CDATA[Joel Van Horne]]> When Joel Van Horne’s band Carbon Choir broke up roughly a year ago, he locked himself in his family’s cabin in Wyoming and wrote music.

And around this time of year there’s no better feast for the soul than the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, a veritable cornucopia of great music from some of the world’s most talented singer/ songwriters. As we prepare ourselves for the changing of the seasons, Folks Fest provides us a physical place to wind down, reflect and enjoy the final days of summer.]]> <![CDATA[Photo essay: Incubus at Red Rocks Aug. 17]]> Incubus played Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Wednesday, Aug. 17, and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello opened.

And it should probably stay that way. Still, put it in the hands of someone like the subdudes and let it fly with the kind of ragged elegance that has kept the band such a compelling enigma for two decades, and maybe the dog’ll hunt.]]> <![CDATA[SLIDESHOW AND REVIEW: Orgone at the Fox Theatre]]> L.A. funk band Orgone delivered a surprising, tight and, unfortunately, under-appreciated performance at the Fox Theatre Tuesday night. The realization came to me later that this was a Tuesday night during summer break; though the rowdy student crowd was nowhere in sight tonight, the post-college turnout seemed revel in having the place to themselves. Honestly, it was awesome.]]>
