    Second Story Garage: Plain White T’s

    Tom Higgenson of Plain White T’s performs “Hey There Delilah” at Second Story Garage music video studio in Boulder, Colorado. The Plain White T’s shot to fame in 2007 with “Hey There Delilah,” a two-time Grammy-nominated song that for some bands might have been one of those achievements never to be topped. But in subsequent releases, the T’s proved capable of consistent hit-making. Songs such as “1, 2, 3, 4” and “Rhythm of Love,” like “Delilah,” are melodic gems and […]

    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: 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 […]

    Arise Festival focuses on uplifting music, ideas

    By Quentin Young In the Yoga Zone section of the Arise Music Festival, visitors can try Neurosculpting Yoga, which, the festival says, “focuses on meditation ways to re-align the internal wiring of the right and left brain.” Elsewhere, in the festival’s workshop tent, a group will be led in “deep play,” which involves the rejection of old patterns of behavior in favor of freedom and the unknown. In an area called the Healer’s Village, festivalgoers can learn about such subjects […]

    Electric pairing: video-game music at Red Rocks

    By Marc Camron Rocky Mountain Gamer Once upon a time, video-game music consisted mainly of electronic bleeps and bloops, usually indicating a shot being fired, a crude ship exploding or a little yellow face scarfing up dots. These days, game music often features the sort of sweeping scores one might expect to find in an epic film or on Broadway. Colorado gamers and music fans alike will get a taste of that Wednesday when “Video Games Live,” a traveling symphonic […]
