New music shares this week from Debajo del Agua, Analog Son (f. Ivan Neville), Natalie Tate, and Ryan Chrys & the Roughcuts. I also played a new cut from Wolf van Elfmand, but there was no embed available to share. Ditto Rose Hill Drive who I had hoped to share also this week.
Look for new releases next week from Andy Palmer and Head for the Hills among others.
SHOW NEWS = 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins moved the show to Saturdays from 4PM to 6PM.
GOAT ON THE TOWN
(I know that’s some corny shit .. but what the hell)
Look into any nook and cranny today and you can find live music. This is especially true of brew pubs, where on just about any night of the week you can find an amazing array of local talent – generally of the singer-songwriter variety, and mostly in country, bluegrass, and folk styles — and mostly acoustic, although there are certainly exceptions to all those things.
I stopped by Oscar Blues CHUBurger in Longmont Friday evening for a burger and a beer and caught up with friends Jessica and Andy Eppler, aka the Prairie Scholars… one of, if not the top duo playing Longmont right now… holding court every Tuesday night at SKEYE Brewing‘s open mic night. SKEYE Brewing also hosts music every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 9. See their schedule online for details about the acts playing there.
Echo Brewing in Frederick does not offer live music regularly, according to the staff. I stopped by there Saturday afternoon to see a friend and have a couple of pints. Echo was celebrating their 5th Anniversary, and as a special event treat they had local garage rock cover band Cat Jerky playing. It was a perfect afternoon to have a killer Kolsch and enjoy some classic rock and country.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
I first became aware of, and a fan of Debajo del Agua in 2007, when they released Arte-Santo. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with them on some shows around the region. Then, following their 2008 release The World Upside Down, the band inexplicably dropped off my radar. I’m happy to say, they have a new album out for 2017 – with a renewed vision and expanded sound.
From their website bio: Debajo del Agua has been a pillar of the artivist musical community for over a decade. While their musical style is not easily categorized or defined, it is focused on fusing hip hop with the melodies of Andean music, samba, son, salsa, cumbia, reggae, and reggaeton, creating a flavorful blend of melodies, spiced up with a style of its own. The members of Debajo del Agua span the Americas coming from Chile, Peru, El Salvador, Mexico, and the United States.
