It would be appropriate to say that the music for the upcoming
week should be “off the hook.”
Perhaps further explanation is expected. Listen to this-and try
to keep up-’cause there’s a lot of exciting information involved.
If you need to reread to further digest, that’s understandable.
Tonight and Friday night, the Aggie Theatre is presenting two
shows that cater to similar palettes. This evening Yonder Mountain
String Band takes the stage and Friday night Keller Williams will
amaze enthusiasts with his guitar skills.
Yonder is a bluegrass group, well respected in their genre and
Williams is an amazing instrumentalist with a catchy vibe and the
ability to imitate a sound almost exactly like a trumpet with his
voice. Sound interesting? Then go to the show and check it out. It
is interesting, by the way.
Sunday night hosts a show that is being awarded the “Guaranteed
Dope Show” stamp of approval; only the second time this award has
been given all year. Performing at the Fillmore Auditorium in
Denver is N.E.R.D. and the Black Eyed Peas. This is perhaps one of
the hottest shows on tour right now.
N.E.R.D. is the alter-ego of the Neptunes. The Neptunes are the
bomb and surely their self-described alter-ego is equally as dope.
The Black Eyed Peas are nothing to shake your tail feather at
either. Actually, since shaking your tail feather is dancing, you
should shake ’em at this band too. Catch that?
Wu-tang clan ain’t nothing to … um … mess with. Seriously
don’t mess with these guys, or Ol’ Dirty will probably put you
down-and that would suck. They’re performing Monday night at
Cervantes in Denver. Pssst. Don’t tell anybody, but Ghostface Killa
is gonna be IN THE HOUSE.
Wednesday night, return to the Aggie for some good ol’ hippity
hop. Check out J-Live, People Under the Stairs and Oddjobs. People
Under the Stairs have been dropping jaws and lighting mics on fire
for several years now and any show with them is one worth catching
Hopefully you can absorb the realm of possibilities that lie in
store for the upcoming week. They are vast and varied, venturing
from the yonder mountains to the top of the charts and leaving a
wake of heady listeners and hopped-out hipsters, and that should be
music to anybody’s ears.
