CP S12 EP30 2018

Gotta love Monday mornings after a full weekend of brain daze and music … oh, wait … I’m thinking of next Monday, when I don’t know if I’ll still be okay to sit and type a few lines, after three days of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, and one night of Yarmonygrass (in/near Bond and State Bridge and Rancho Del Rio).

Yarmonygrass is a non-profit, volunteer-powered event that benefits the Coral Creek Kids Music Project to bring music performance and education to underserved kids in Colorado.  GOATZ! is excited and honored to be the opening act on Thursday Aug 9.

BIG THANKS to everyone involved with the 11th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival that took place Saturday.  Despite about a half hour wind storm that was borderline “shut down” level we made it to the end without incident – and with a FABULOUS (pun intended) show from the FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS, The Burroughs, Taylor Scott Band, Bonnie & the Clydes, Andy Sydow, and Veggie Matters.  Also big thanks to the City of Dacono.

I received an email last week that the Colorado Playlist will no longer be aired on 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins.  Basically, management has decided to no longer air syndicated programming.

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.

 

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

“All I’ve Got” music video by Sarah Snead, produced by Kyle Lamar and Josh Pinsky from Digital Myle, starring Phyllis Spielman and Eddie James, and Sarah’s husband Michael Hornbuckle.   The video follows a relationship of two women showing the camaraderie that occurs despite going through hard times.

CP S12 EP28 2018

Just a short note this week.  It’s summer.  We have family in town from New Jersey for ten days.  Gonna make sure we treat them to as much as we can of what CO is all about – including bands, beers, bud and booze.  And grand views, Grand Lake, South Park and Red Rocks of course.

This week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) below has new music for you to vote on from Darren Garvey (Elephant of Revival), Devotchka, the Lumineers, John Grant (the Czars) and Westword Music Showcase Award Winner RL Cole & the Hell You Say.

Next week’s show is already in the can.  It’s a mid-summer review of some of the best of the Colorado Playlist for 2018.  Enjoy.  Hopefully I’ll be back in time for next week’s post.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Jen Korte with her band “the Loss” just won the Westword Music Showcase Award for best folk artist for 2018.  In the meantime Jen is also establishing herself as FAR MORE than folk, pop, rock, hip-hop, indie or any other style outside of metal, punk, country or blues with her latest offering called Lady Gang.

From the website:  ABOUT: ​Lady Gang was given a small loop pedal in 2014 and found herself quickly  falling down the rabbit hole of live looping and beat creation. Empowered by her electric guitar, her voice, a beat machine, and her loop pedal, LADY GANG fuses elements of hip hop and indie rock to create  a sound rich with originality and skill.

…she has been seen in and around Denver as a solo artist as well as a collaborator in Denver’s hip hop scene both as a vocalist and guitarist for Def Knock and through her partnership with Denver’s best MC of 2017, Kitty Crimes, as Nasty Twin.  She has been seen opening the stage for Too Short, The Pharcyde, Mac Lethal and Wax.

CP S12 EP27 2018

Another week and another weekend of live music in Northern Colorado.  The main event this weekend was a benefit for Women In Blues held at the Armory Event Center in Brighton.

Event organizer Kyle Deibler (Memphis West Music) filled me in that W.I.B. is an aspiring national level non-profit (501C3) organization. Colorado women in blues owned the sparsely attended event from the first act on.

Unfortunately, I was not able to stay to see the non-Colorado talent headlining the bill, due to a scheduled show with my own band.

The biggest surprise of the day was a revamped Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene.  Gone are Lance “Romance” Bakermeyer (bass) and Mad Dog Minnick (drums/vocals), who have gone back to the Hillbilly Hellcats with Chuch Hughes.

Lance and Mad Dog provided equal parts of the look, vibe and style to the original Crime Scene lineup – giving the band a unified and uniformed look and sound on stage – matching Kerry AND Pauly Six in performance intensity and style.  Wearing beards, caps, dark glasses and black shirts, the matching colorful fashion statement gone, a potentially darker and deadlier groove may be what we’ll get moving forward from the new rhythm section.

KPCS has a new album dropping very soon – I premiered a new track from the album (a Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazelwood cover featuring Jim Dalton of the Railbenders) in the show this week .. it’s below in the MMMM.

Fresh off her album release show at the Walnut Room in Denver, Cass Clayton opened the show.  She and her airtight band showed considered homage to her obvious influences, that include Susan Tedeschi and Bonnie Raitt.

The Crime Scene and Cass Clayton Band were not the only ones appearing with new releases in hand.  Colorado Blues Society 2018 Band Champion, Mojomama, recently released their latest called Red, White and Blues.  Happily for me they included my favorite track on the album, Lazy RiverEef & the Blues Express rounded out the show, showcasing her formidable guitar chops, alongside the Colorado Blues Society 2018 solo/duo Champion Scott Hackler on keys.

The Brighton Armory is an exquisite small venue in our region capable of seating 300, or providing standing room only for 500.  They’ve been adding more and more shows there, produced either by the city of Brighton under the management of Gary Montoya or by independent promoters.

The sound system is more than adequate for the room, and stands out as among the best in the region – equaling those at venues such as the Armory in Fort Collins or the Boulder Theater or the Mishawaka Amphitheatre.  One criticism from me is that the room clearly needs additional baffling and sound absorption panels to knock down the boominess of a near empty room.

In a city that lacks even ONE non-public venue dedicated to live music, the Armory is a wonderful place to catch upcoming shows from the likes of popular regional acts like FACE Vocal Band, or national country acts like John Anderson (coming Oct 28) … and is EASILY accessible to Denver, Thornton, and other north metro communities.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Every once in a while a new artist appears, seemingly out of nowhere.  I cannot even begin to say where or how I heard of Jackson Emmer from Carbondale.  He’s been getting mad praise from the likes of No Depression, POPMATTERS and Rolling Stone, which wrote “Americana songwriters are a dime a dozen these days, but few are writing songs like Jackson Emmer.”

CP S12 EP26 2018

June, July and August are the three HOTTEST months – musically.  There are more outdoor events – ticketed and free – in our region today than is even possible to chronicle, let alone attend.

Saturday night my girlfriend and I attended a sold out Mishawaka show – Trout Steak Revival with Gasoline Lollipops and Canyon Collected.  It was the last possible Saturday night I had available this summer to get to the Mishawaka for a show, and the overall experience did not disappoint.  A special surprise that night was the acoustic version of Gasoline Lollipops – the first for the band.

It was pretty evident that the sold out audience was there for the two jamgrass bands.  The Gas Pops met reserved appreciation from a polite audience until they revved up the tempos, allowing Don to demonstrate his formidable lead guitar skills and Clay to demonstrate his ability to own any audience I’ve ever seen him in front of.

By the end of the set, with Clay raging vocally, the audience was sold.  When the band came back on for a quick set of pics by the house photog, the audience thought maybe they were getting an encore …

Lead guitarist Don Ambory broke out a mandolin, the first time I’ve seen that happen – and he played his 1940’s Gibson acoustic for the Gas Pops set.  He also sat in on three songs with Trout Steak, and played electric guitar – his solos in the Trout Steak set were fan favorites as were the ukulele solos taken by Canyon Collected’s Tia Martini. 

Some of us standing in the “VIP” viewing area commented on the presence of the ukulele in the lineup until Tia demonstrably shredded every jam in the band’s 45 minute crowd pleasing set.

Because of the hour forty minute drive home to the Denver metro we didn’t stay for the entire set by Trout Steak Revival, but based on the overall feel of the night, and the thunderous applause during the first half of their set, I have no doubt that the show didn’t end by midnight.  Trout Steak does stand out as one of the best acoustic jamgrass Americana-folk bands in the region today.

Last week I posted the The Best of 2018 So Far.  Beyond the top 5 albums posted, there are some others that stand up well as we’re now beyond mid point of the year.  The new album by Brent Cowles on Dine Alone Records, as well as Covenhoven’s A Kind of Revelation are going to be strong contenders by mid-December when the best of lists for the year come out around the region.

CP S12 EP25 2018

I’ve been asked a few times what happened to last week’s post.  A human error on my part … I sent out the wrong version of the show, so there was no point in posting a playlist that never happened.  I made sure I sent out the correct version of the show this week.

There have been times over the past 12 years when a record has sat in my collection for several months before it rises to the top and gets debuted (D) on the show.  This week it was Durango’s Lacey Black, whose latest album All These Years (2017) took time for me to recognize and get into the show.

Also new this week – The Indigo Girls, who are NOT a Colorado acts, but their latest album is a live recording with the CU Symphony – so it makes the cut along with Colorado native Tia Fuller, who has long since lived in New Jersey.

The String Cheese Incident have been playing around in their home studio as part of their Sound Lab series .. and have put out two new singles, including this week’s MMMM add, Vertigo.

A premiere this week in advance of the official release = Minor, a new project featuring Jessa Raskin,  who was formerly teamed up with Jordan Polovina (Whiskey Blanket, Michel Menert) in Grim&Darling.  Minor will be releasing the track and a video to the public on July 3rd.

CP S12 EP23 2018

A NOTE about the MMMM … When I started it many months ago I intended it as a way to share the new music in this blog that I debuted each week in the broadcast version of the show. I never intended the KEEP or DELETE feature to be a way for fans of a band to just come in and run up votes without also experiencing the other new cuts I share … which has happened more and more over time.

I can tell every time a band’s fans only vote for the band that drives them to the poll.  A song may get 60+ KEEP votes while five other songs get a bare handful of votes.

I appreciate every vote that every song earns.  I hope those who vote for one song at least check out others that are shared.

It’s never easy to announce the end of an era, especially when it entails the death of a friend or family member. Last Wednesday, as I was finishing up production on EP23 news flashed across my FB pg that Coupe Studios (Boulder) founder Scott Roche passed away from cancer.

I did not know Scott well.  We knew each other professionally through the scene, and he always wanted me to know about some new record coming from Coupe.  I actually got to record one song there, one my late wife wrote called Once Upon a Snowflake.  It was the very first song I ever recorded.

The history of Coupe Studios will not end with Scott.  He was wise enough to know that all life ends and if the studio was to continue then younger people had to do the work – so he set it up that way – that a couple of younger guys would move the vision forward.

Long live Coupe Studios (founded in a chicken coop) – RIP Scott Rouch.
