    Well – here we are, in the thick of it, the UMS, day #3. At this point, you’re probably feeling the heat, sweating out the alcohol (soon to be replaced), trying to stretch your extremities and get them back under your control, and wondering how you’re still awake. But it’s really just begun. This...

    Guided By Voices at the Gothic Theatre, June 4, 2014 (Reverb Review)

    by  • June 6, 2014 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, National, NewsThreads • 1 Comment


    Robert Pollard and his “Classic Lineup” of Guided by Voices played the Gothic Theatre last Wednesday night – with a vengeance. For nearly three hours, and through upwards of 50 tunes and including three set-long encores, Pollard and the boys proved to a modest-but-rabid crowd that age ain’t nothin’ to the true rock ‘n...

    At the risk of eliciting a chorus of jaded groans: Yes, Peter Hook & the Light, led by the bassist for the influential Joy Division, performed a rousing rendition of the post-punk swan song “Love Will Tear Us Apart” last night at the Bluebird in the first of two encores. Did you think they...

    The 11th Annual UMS is now in its third day, and rounding the inside corner to slingshot itself into full, reckless, dangerous and foolhardy speed, and you're going to want to grab on for dear life about now, and hold on. It's going to get a lot more beautiful before too long, and there'll...

    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...

    by  • April 4, 2011 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, National, NewsThreads • 0 Comments

    At the Larimer Lounge on Saturday night, Jenn Wasner mentioned that she and bandmate Andy Stack of the Baltimore band Wye Oak, were tired. And justifiably so, having come from Salt Lake City that day, and in the very beginning of a 10-day stretch of their current tour that travels through the midwest and...

    HeyReverb! Live Review: Sonic Youth @the Ogden – 10/04/10 – on a BRAND NEW Reverb site!

    by  • October 5, 2010 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, National, NewsThreads • 0 Comments

    After last Monday night’s show at the Ogden Theater, I’m convinced that Sonic Youth are immortals - beings that refuse to age. What else explains their uncanny ability to remain constantly relevant, prescient - and continuously young - in the face of a culture hell bent on replication of the popular, and often the...

    Having seen Jim Yelenick in his other bands — the hardcore Pitch Invasion and the hilarious acousti-punk Sputnik Slovenia — I figured I’d seen the gamut of his personas, and loved them all. But none topped his loose adaptation of Joe Strummer in a full nun habit, wildly leading a packed house through a...

    Cheerleaders, men in diapers (one of them covered in blood) and a clown with a mohawk making balloon animals. That was the scene on the Gothic Theatre’s stage last Friday night. All of that, and there was also a rock band — Warlock Pinchers, one of Denver’s legendary locals from the late ‘80s/early ‘90s —...

    The UMS: 4 incredible days, 300+ bands, memories that won’t soon fade

    by  • July 27, 2010 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, Interviews, Local, National, NewsThreads • 0 Comments

    One impossibly acceptable truth: four days and nights of anything might be just about too much. This is what I found myself thinking last night as I carried pieces of a guitar, smashed onstage at the 3 Kings Tavern by a member of the local band Gangcharger, from venue to venue at the end...

    by  • July 13, 2010 • Denver Venues, In Denver Live, Local, Locals Only, NewsThreads • 0 Comments

    Judging from the sounds that burst from the Larimer Lounge stage last Saturday night, Colorado is no longer landlocked, and Denver now sports beachfront property. Those sounds came from local instrumental legends Maraca Five-0, who have reunited after six years to debut as opener for Slim Cessna’s Auto Club — one of a short list...
