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 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.

Weeks like this don’t come around too often.  It’s with a tremendous amount of gratitude that I announce the addition of  the Music Programs at Bohemian Foundation as the new sponsor of the Colorado Playlist – including the Music District, the Historic Armory, and Washington’s Fort Collins.

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community. An effective way to build community connections is by coming together to create and enjoy music.

Coming June 17 for a special Father’s Day show = Sierra Hull, a Nashville star on the rise, with Yonder Mountain String Band mandolinist Jacob Jolliffe and his band.  Tix etc at www.armoryfoco.com

I’m pretty honored this week to present a Colorado Playlist premiere.  In case you missed the show on the radio airwaves around the state, I presented the premiere of a new Katey Laurel track, Daydream, off her upcoming new EP of the same name dropping on June 26.

Katey has been among my favorite adult contemporary artists in the scene for many years.  Throughout her career she’s exemplified what it means to be a professional – approaching both her song-craft and business with the highest standards, and along the way earning considerable praise and accolades in not only our scene but nationally as well.  Check out her bio.

I was absolutely blown away this weekend when I opened my email and got the message that Head for the Hills was moving forward with a new sound, and a new lineup.  The newest member, Sam (mandolin) is leaving the band and original founding members, Adam, Joe and Matt have decided on keeping it going after 15 years – and embracing sounds far outside their core bluegrass sound it seems, at least based on the video below recorded live at their annual Pickin On the Poudre show at the Mishawaka.

It was a long weekend.  Saturday I was the stage manager for one of the stages at the Denver Day of Rock. After a blistering mid-afternoon set I got to hang with Brent Cowles and his band that included Joe Richmond (drums), Nate Meese (bass), and Trent Nelson (guitar) and chat about what’s up … turns out they’re heading out on the road with Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats for a seven day east coast run – with a new album dropping next week.  ***BE LISTENING to next week’s show for another fresh track from the upcoming album***

Monday I exercised my position as entertainment coordinator for the 40th Bolder Boulder – that included several of our area’s best local bands – including MLIMA, Monocle Band, Crowboy, South to Cedars, VooDoo Kings, CC & the Riders, Eef, Jill Brzezcki, Tim Ostdiek, Antonio Lopez, and Slopeside among others.

One of the most popular hits in classic rock history, Dream On by Aerosmith, came out three years before some disc jockey decided to play it on the radio – and the rest, as they say, is history.

I’m not saying the same thing is happening this week, but I want to draw your attention to two (D) tracks in this week’s show that came out a year ago and to this point never made it to the show – one from the Motet, and one from a “new” band out of Colorado Springs – Audible.  Let me know what you think of them in this week’s MMMM.

Another (D) track this week is from Andreas Devalera who I shared a stage with several months ago – and whose new release is the work, not of an 18 year old HS grad, but of someone many years older with greater life experiences and time spent on his multiple instruments.

Already proficient on 10 instruments, Andreas is one of those kids voted on as most likely to succeed – and evidenced by such a stunning debut, I’m inclined to agree.  Sorry I don’t have an embed for the song I played.  His cd release show was last night in Denver – so it may take a little while longer before the album is uploaded to your favorite new music streaming site.

Colorado Symphony, now operating in the black, catches break on rent for city-owned Boettcher Concert Hall. According to the article in the Denver Post, the Colorado Symphony ended the year in the black for the first time since a 2011 internal review declared it was on the brink of disaster.  As a result, the Denver City Council voted to provide the symphony savings of $166k a year in the way of free office space and cheaper rent to use Boettcher Concert Hall.  Follow the link for more info.

Gasoline Lollipops will soon have a new sound and a new drummer.  Adam Perry, who was also once the drummer for the Yawpers as they were emerging in the scene, has announced he’s leaving the band to put more efforts into his job at a Boulder law firm, writing for Westword, and his now 8 year old daughter.  Band leader Clay Rose says the sound of the band will morp into more spacey and psychedelic themes.  The story was first reported in the Boulder Beat.

Last week I reported on the death of Denver Joe.  In the meantime, long time friend and Denver musician Marty Jones wrote a terrific tribute to Joe for Westword.
