Punk Rocks feat. NOFX, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Bouncing Souls @ Red Rocks Amphitheatre

[photopress:NOFX.jpg,full,pp_image] NOFX are still jerks — thank God. Photo from the band’s MySpace profile. If I were to correctly recount all of what was said, done, and insinuated by NOFX at the Punk Rocks show at Red Rocks Friday night, a passerby of this article could snap up my words, stray them from context, and accuse me of being a racist, a pervert and a bad writer. But I can only write the truth, and what would a NOFX show be without talk of lesbians [...]



Journey @ Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre

Arnel Pineda had some big shoes to fill Wednesday. And by the end of his second-ever American concert as the new crooner for Journey, most of the 18,000 crammed into Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre had forgotten Steve Perry. With perfect pitch, power and amazing resonance, Pineda floored a crowd that probably arrived ready to pine for Perry. A few months ago Pineda was a somewhat popular [...]



Casiotone for the Painfully Alone @ the Hi-Dive

When I went to go see Casiotone for the Painfully Alone at the Hi-Dive on Wednesday, I was half-heartedly expecting to see Owen Ashworth’s one-man-band beefed up by some of the formidable folks who occasionally join him on strings, flutes or organs. But it was just him — and a peculiar crowd that looked like they were ditching their junior prom. This was better, I think. I [...]



Liam Finn, Laura Veirs @ the Walnut Room

[photopress:liamfinn06.jpg,full,pp_image] Liam Finn played (nearly) every instrument at his Friday-night show at the Walnut Room. Photos by Doug Beam. As hard as it was, tearing ourselves away from the Walnut Room’s majestic pizza on Friday night, we did it. We left our table of friends, still eating, and brought our drinks into the Walnut’s adjoined room where Liam Finn, son of Neil, had just started his opening set. Our friends were there for headliner Laura Veirs. But we were there for Liam and Laura. And [...]



Elbow @ the Bluebird Theater

[photopress:elbow.jpg,full,pp_image] Elbow’s Guy Garvey (above) could hardly believe the size of the crowd at the Bluebird Theater on Friday. Photo from The Pop Cop. Despite having just flown in from England, Air Traffic opened its Friday night set with three energetic songs. From song to song, the sound varied from guitar-driven punk to the most tender of piano ballads. It was a strange but not unpleasant experience, akin to watching the Clash and Coldplay trading off songs. This is Air Traffic’s first tour of America, [...]
