Quality music and nationally recognized names swing through
Colorado in the next week.
Two bands that are playing on Friday night are both blessed with
loyal followers and new albums. The Samples, a group with Colorado
ties, is playing at the Fox Theatre in Boulder and moe. is playing
with Galactic at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver. The Samples are
just releasing their newest album, “Black and White,” while moe. is
touring in support of their newest release “Wormwood.” Both bands
are sweet to listen to and have flavors completely their own.
Valentine’s Day is generally spent on a dinner date or the
movies, but live music is a known aphrodisiac, so for those horny
audiophiles … I got you. Two shows look especially enticing. If
you want to stay local with your lady then check out Listen with
Black Pegasus at the Starlight. Both groups are currently in
rotation on KCSU and are sure to put on an entertaining show.
On the chance that you happen to find yourself in Denver on this
holiday, then head over to hot spot Herman’s Hideaway and check out
Opie Gone Bad. This group is one of Denver’s most prized
possessions and the members enjoy rocking, much like we enjoy
rocking. Ah, true love.
Sunday night Avogadro’s hosts acoustic singer-songwriter Inda
Eaton. Eaton has gained acclaim in both the folk and rock genres,
and in the past several years she has opened for bands such as
Hootie and the Blowfish, Blues Traveler and LeAnn Rimes. With a
good sound and solid lyrics this should prove to be an enjoyable
Tuesday night sees one of the most popular bands in the United
States blow up on the Fillmore in Denver. Evanescence, feeling so
fresh and so clean with two Grammies in its back pocket, is set to
play to the crowd. The group recently received Grammy Awards for
Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance. The members will
undoubtedly be riding a wave of pure adrenaline inspired not only
by the Grammy success but also by the fact that the band’s recent
album “Fallen” has been certified four times platinum and has sold
more than six million copies worldwide. Six million copies huh? I
count to six million for fun.
The week culminates Wednesday with one of the most popular
Colorado acts on the scene, Leftover Salmon. This
local-gone-national group has become famous for its talent and
jam-band, grassroots style. The group is a Colorado commodity to be
proud of and support, so make sure you get to the Aggie to show
some love to some to a Colorado homegrown talent.
