    Second Story Garage: Eminence Ensemble

    Eminence Ensemble perform “Here’s Your Sine” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. The term “prog rock” became almost an epithet after the post-Zappa excesses of the 1980s, when the misguided pursued intricacy for its own sake and soul was squeezed out of the musical fabric. Prog-rock bands never went away, just as liberals never went away in the 2000s. They were just avoiding a label that had accrued regrettable connotations. But the term has been reclaimed […]

    Second Story Garage: Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer

    Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer perform “Serotiny (May Our Music)” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Science and music have a way of mingling in the mind. Tom Scholz, mastermind of the band Boston, was an MIT grad and engineer for Polaroid. Brian May, guitarist for Queen, graduated from “We Will Rock You” to academic astrophysics. Dave McGraw used to be a wildlife biologist. The scientist is now a singer as one half of the indie […]

    Second Story Garage: Ayo Awosika

    Ayo Awosika performs “Another Kind of Mission” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Ayo Awosika is based in New York these days, but Colorado music fans will recognize her for her work with Front Range acts such as The Motet. She lived and made music in Colorado for five years, and her connections with Mile High musicians keep her coming back regularly to the state. She returned in May, in fact, to release her debut solo […]

    Second Story Garage: Rocktin Grove

    Rocktin Grove perform “Living Cities” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. The guys in Rocktin Grove are all-around creative. Guitarist Wilson Harwood makes jewelry out of guitar strings. Theo Farver made his own guitar (he’s playing it in the band’s Garge session, the one that kind of looks like a gold Gibson Les Paul). When the six band members get together, they make rock music with touches of bluegrass, jamband and roots, and this is the […]

    Second Story Garage: Gasoline Lollipops

    Gasoline Lollipops perform “Death” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Clay Rose, frontman of Gasoline Lollipops, pictures Jesus as sporting Elvis-like sideburns. It’s not the most conventional conception of the son of God, but it’s an entertaining one, and it somehow jibes with what it’s like to listen to the Lollipops. The Boulder alt-country band gives its EPs names such as Death and Resurrection, and its songs bear the mark of hard truths and sin. But […]

    Second Story Garage: decker.

    decker. perform “Spades” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. The lyrical references on decker.’s latest album, Patsy, run from Ol’ Dirty Bastard to Lee Harvey Oswald, and in between is some sharp thinking expressed in cutting lines. Decker.’s view of the world is expansive and unforgiving. “Patsy,” the album’s title song, was inspired by Oswald, and it gives a first-person account as if told by Kennedy’s assassin. It provocatively asks the listener to empathize with this […]

    Second Story Garage: High Five

    Denver hip-hop group High Five perform “I Got It” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. High Five got the attention of the Second Story Garage crew at a set they performed for the Colorado Music Party during South by Southwest in March. The music was fun, the MCs were confident, the raps were smart and inventive, and the band as a whole exuded a determination to succeed. Based on the crowd reaction in Austin, there’s little […]

    Second Story Garage: Grisman, Leslie, Hargreaves & Smith

    Grisman, Leslie, Hargreaves & Smith perform “Shrimp Island Reel” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. Bluegrass emphasizes tradition. For all the proliferation of jamgrass and its variants, especially in Colorado, the old ways of bluegrass have an inherently powerful pull that keep successive players from growing too far from the roots. But the quartet Grisman, Leslie, Hargreaves & Smith does much to expand the possibilities of a bluegrass lineup. Bluegrass songs are essentially country songs, and […]

    Umphrey’s McGee raises a toast to Colorado music fans

    By Sonia Amodeo Amid a seemingly relentless tour schedule that’s been going on since 1997, Umphrey’s McGee is back in town and ready to play an intimate show for Boulder on Thursday night. Though the crew comes through town nearly every summer, the shows usually sell out, and Umphrey’s gig at the Boulder Theater, 2032 14th St., is no exception. If you couldn’t snag a ticket to the Boulder show, the band will perform Friday at Red Rocks, 18300 W. […]

    Thanks to tour, film, Beach Boys’ Wilson feeling good vibrations again

    By Quentin Young Brian Wilson was America’s answer to Paul McCartney — over a period of about four years in the mid-1960s these rival magicians of melody set standards for pop songwriting that have yet to be topped — but he also was an American Syd Barrett. As with Barrett, Pink Floyd’s original songwriter and singer, The Beach Boys’ Wilson struggled with internal demons that both played a role in his creativity and eventually led to reclusive debilitation (and which […]

    Grateful Dead kick off Fare Thee Well tour

    By Lisa Leff Associated Press SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The songs still ran long. To the uninitiated, the communal rituals of the faithful fans probably looked strange. Was it trippy? Well, this was a Grateful Dead show, after all, the first in a handful over the next week that are said to be the last. The four surviving members of the Dead, joined by a trio of well-versed companions, launched their Fare Thee Well mini-tour Saturday night in Northern California, […]
