Denver Botanic Gardens announces 2016 summer lineup

Denver Botanic Gardens, along with Swallow Hill Music, has announced its popular summer music lineup for 2016. Laura Viers, k.d. lang and Neko Case's new supergroup case/lang/viers, mellow singer-songwriter José González, Steep Canyon Rangers and returning favorites Chris Isaak and Bruce Hornsby round out the 13 shows that have been announced so far.

Dressy Bessy roars back to life with “Kingsized” album, tour

If a band is only as good as its last album, Dressy Bessy was in trouble. The Denver indie-pop act’s 2008 release “Holler and Stomp” sold poorly and received a conspicuous slam from the tastemakers at Pitchfork, which damned the album with a 2.8 (out of 10) rating and called it “awkward” and “weak,” speculating that “it’s probably time for folks to stow Dressy Bessy in the attic.” Regardless of its quality, “Holler” also arrived at a time when the recording industry — and the economy around it — was disintegrating.

M83 announces US tour, Red Rocks show

French electronic artist M83 has announced a 2016 U.S. tour, including a show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on May 31. As you may have heard, Anthony Gonzalez has taken time off from working on movie scores to cut a new M83 album he'll be touring behind.

The late-night television trifecta is complete. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats have appeared on Fallon, Conan and now, Colbert. No apologies for those fans expecting for an encore performance of "S.O.B." Instead, on Monday night, the Stax-signed act flexed their muscles on their debut album's opening track, "I Need Never Get Old." The cohesive display from some Denver's proudest musical sons captured a time when an 8-track was a distant idea.

No Joy steals DIIV’s show at the Gothic Theatre

The Gothic Theatre hosted a reverb-heavy night with Brooklyn’s DIIV and a much less-than-capacity audience last Friday night. DIIV never really seemed to reach a zenith of interest as their hour-long set progressed, championing the beachy, dream-pop style that's been buzzing around indie music recently.
