    Second Story Garage: Cabinet

    Cabinet perform “Celebration” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Pappy Biondo has a nonchalant, almost cavalier approach to fulfilling his vocal duties in Cabinet. He opens his mouth to sing, but not much beyond the necessary amount. His delivery sometimes has a talk-sing quality to it. But it’s not as if he’s being lazy or seems bored. He’s being true to the band’s overall vibe, which is half-front porch, half-after midnight. Cabinet is from the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre […]

    Intuit perform “Freedom Ringing” at Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colorado. Intuit’s performance in the Garage has a mystical feel about it. If nothing else, the sense came from the jar of “holy water” that the Boulder band brought to add to our collection of trinkets. As Chloe B.

    Second Story Garage: Aspen Hourglass

    Aspen Hourglass perform their song “Who Needs” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Most people don’t play guitar like Grayson Erhard does. That’s because most people can’t play guitar like he does. He often uses a difficult two-hands-on-the-fretboard technique that Eddie Van Halen first popularized but which players such as Erhard have developed beyond pop-rock vulgarity. In the Fort Collins band Aspen Hourglass, Erhard is joined by two similarly accomplished instrumentalists — Elvin Holderfield on keys […]

    Second Story Garage: Dead Winter Carpenters

    Dead Winter Carpenters perform “Good Old Time” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Dead Winter Carpenters share a certain country-rock duality with their world-famous California compatriots, the Eagles, but the spirit of the Carpenters’ music is more mountain trail than rural road. Maybe that’s why the band is gaining fans in Colorado, one of its stomping grounds. The Carpenters were in Colorado in late February for several shows in the region, including a set at eTown […]

The Massachusetts-based artist writes the kind of songs that come from a deeply personal place but which anyone can relate to, and […]

    Second Story Garage: Bradford Lee Folk and the Bluegrass Playboys

    Bradford Lee Folk and the Bluegrass Playboys perform “Soil and Clay” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. There aren’t many farmers left in the country, let alone bluegrass musicians who are actually farmers. But Bradford Lee Folk has always been the real deal. He first came to national attention in the early 2000s as part of Open Road, a Colorado bluegrass group that was noted not just for its instrumental and vocal skills but for how […]

    Long, strange trip: Grateful Dead drummer eager to visit pot-legal Colorado

    By Quentin Young Bill Kreutzmann is planning his first trip to Colorado since the state legalized recreational pot. A self-described marijuana activist, the Grateful Dead drummer takes this kind of legal development seriously. “When we were in Haight-Ashbury, we thought (pot) would be legal by 1972,” Kreutzmann said, referring to the San Francisco neighborhood where the Dead rose to fame for its mind-altering music. In the ’90s, Kreutzmann moved to Hawaii, where he has experimented with growing his own marijuana. […]

    Take a magical mystery tour with The Fab 4

    By Quentin Young Paul McCartney, 72, recently appeared with new music that was a collaboration with an artist roughly half his age, Kanye West. He has moved far beyond the music he created in his 20s, so it’s left to others to perform the repertoire of The Beatles. Colorado gets its live dose of John, Paul, George and Ringo from The Fab 4, a Beatles tribute act. The Denver-area group has more than 100 songs in its repertoire, conducts on-stage […]

    SPELLS is out of control at SXSW 2015

    Ben Roy sings “I’m out of control” in a way that makes you believe him. His band SPELLS, from Denver, dresses in matching clothes, but Roy’s approach to performance gives the impression of opposing order. He jumped off the stage at the start of the band’s Colorado Music Party set, and he didn’t look back. The Party took place at the 512 during SXSW 2015 in Austin, Texas.
