    Jack Name's "Light Show," released january 21, is some heady psychedelic stuff.

    Free this Saturday night (February 1)? Not any more, you’re not. Time for you to get your Gary Numan-meets-Alice Cooper groove on and go see Jack Name (aka John Webster John – touring as guitarist with White Fence) – opening for Dent May – at the Hi-Dive. Seriously, this Los Angeles psych-soothsayer promises to grab...

    METZ to hit the Hi-Dive in Denver – You’ve Been Warned

    by  • May 6, 2013 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, Interviews, National, NewsThreads • 0 Comments

    METZ - earning their capitalized moniker - play the Hi-Dive Tuesday, May 7. Be there - you'll regret otherwise. (Photo: Colin Medley, SubPop)

    The power of a trio probably comes from its simplicity. Probably (at least that’s my take, and I’m sticking with it). It’s been proven again, and again and again – Rush, The Minutemen, Nirvana, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, ZZ Top, the Police – even Triumph (ferchrissakes) – all innovators, all brilliant (well –...

    Live Review: PA’s Blues Control w/Psychic Ills, Hi-Dive, Thursday, March 7

    by  • March 10, 2013 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, National, NewsThreads • 0 Comments

    Blues Control - from PA

    Blues Control has a reputation. The duo – Russ Waterhouse and Lea Cho, originally from Queens, NYC and now calling Coopersburg, PA home – are known as “unclassifiable,” “completely unique,” “incomparable.” Reviews tend  to color the duo as almost inaccessible, even opaque. They were in the Hi-Dive last Thursday night, and proved that these...

    by  • April 1, 2012 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, Local, National • 0 Comments

    Dirty Femmes will play Violent Femmes first LP in its entirety, Sat., April 7, 2012 at the Hi-Dive.

    How often do you find yourself inadvertently – almost subconsciously humming Blister in the Sun, Kiss Off, Add It Up, American Music or just about any of the seminal hits from early alt-folk (alt-punk? folk-punk? Angst-folk?) trio Violent Femmes? I know for me – and a whole sew of folks who were dragging themselves...

    Live Review: Black Heart Procession at Hi-Dive, Monday, December 12, 2011

    by  • December 14, 2011 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, Local, National, NewsThreads • 0 Comments

    Black Heart Procession and the Saw

    You could say that The Black Heart Procession bears a large portion of responsibility for the sound of “indie” today, and you wouldn’t be wrong. Since the members’ initial involvement in the seminal Three Mile Pilot in the late ‘90s, they’ve been championing a slow, psychedelic-but-gruff Pink Floyd style that’s only been solidified and...

    by  • July 21, 2011 • Denver Venues, Locals Only, NewsThreads, ThreadedTweets, Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    It's here! And it's definitely THE highpoint of Denver's summer music season! A full Red Rocks schedule, the Warped and other festival tours, multiple nights of Widespread Panic - even the monster U2 show in Invesco Field at Mile High - all pale in comparison to the magnitude of this weekend's pinnacle. The 11th...

Including Solar Bear, Ideal Fathers, St Elias and Colors, it attracted a more than modest crowd, and kept...

    Mirah @ Hi-Dive, April 12, 2009 – Reverb

    by  • April 15, 2009 • In Denver Live, National • 0 Comments

    The always-provocative Mirah played at the Hi-Dive last Sunday.

    Portland singer-songwriter Mirah introduced herself at the Hi-Dive Sunday night by saying “My name is Mirah, and I think I’m actually wearing a bra!” In one simple, quirky sentence about a slightly provocative item of clothing, walls of listener/performer separation instantly evaporated, and we felt as close to Mirah as her skin-tight shirt.
