About Last Night: Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band at the Fox Theatre 6/25/17

Continuing my Grateful Dead kick in Boulder once again, I attended a Sunday (never miss one!) show at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, a venue which I have since learned has a capacity of 625 attendees, slightly less than the estimate of 700 I mentioned in my last show review. It somehow never seems crowded, though, as … Continue reading About Last Night: Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band at the Fox Theatre 6/25/17

About Last Night: Ryan Adams at the Fox Theatre, 6/19/17

  This was always going to be a special show. Announced less than a week in advance, most of the sold-out crowd likely found their tickets online through a secret pre-sale code that weaved its way through music-minded social circles.  Ryan Adams was long slated to headline Red Rocks on 6/20, but an additional Monday … Continue reading About Last Night: Ryan Adams at the Fox Theatre, 6/19/17

About Last Night: Dead and Company at Folsom Field, 6/9 & 6/10/2017

About Last Night – Joe Russo’s Almost Dead at 1stBank Center

It was supposed to go down at Red Rocks, but 5+ inches of snow the night before put the kibosh on that plan. Luckily, there was a backup – 1stBank Center in Broomfield, CO, with a capacity of about 7,000 people.  The arena is slightly smaller than Red Rocks, which holds nearly 9K, and it … Continue reading About Last Night – Joe Russo’s Almost Dead at 1stBank Center

Wednesday Cover: Pink Talking Fish do “Time”, “Ghost”, “Psycho Killer”

Alright, I just wrote about this amazing cover band, and here's a taste of what they can do.  Not the best quality video (a lot of audience chatter) but it's a good example of Pink Talking Fish's ability to navigate between Floyd, Phish, and Talking Heads songs with both accuracy and emotion.  The guitar work … Continue reading Wednesday Cover: Pink Talking Fish do “Time”, “Ghost”, “Psycho Killer”
