Reverb contributor Julio Enriquez checks in with this report from the Outside Lands Festival, which took place at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park Aug. 22-24. – Day 1 – The uncomfortable feeling you have when your get your shoes wet upon arriving at a campsite was much like my first day at the very cold, very foggy Outside Lands Festival. I spent the first day trying to acclimate […]

Meet the… er… Beatles!” Text and photos by Lisa Gedgaudas. 1964 was a big year in music history and the Beatles led the way when they jogged across the Atlantic from Liverpool. The Fab Four appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show followed by concerts in over 25 states, including Colorado at the beloved Red Rocks Amphitheatre. On Saturday, and over 44 years later, that night was honored by one of the biggest and most critically acclaimed Beatles tribute bands, 1964. The 1964 […]

[photopress:snider2.jpg,full,pp_image] Despite the rain, the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons attracted the musically faithful last weekend. Photos by Candace Horgan. Imagine the plight, last weekend, of the folk festivarian. You show up Thursday, wait for hours to get a number that will gain you access to the onsite camping area, drive to the camping area, carve out a small patch of a ground, set up, and wait till tomorrow for the festival’s musical lineup to begin. By that point, the weekend’s hard, steady downpour—42 […]

Two decades have passed since Canada’s Cowboy Junkies sauntered onto the charts with a seductive version of the Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” with beckoning bass lines and Margo Timmins’ sultry voice.

Constantines @ the Hi-Dive

[photopress:constantines02.jpg,full,pp_image] Constantines exhibited righteous soul and fire at their Hi-Dive show on Tuesday. Photos by Doug Beam. I went to see Constantines mainly on a year-old recommendation of a friend who told me to listen to their records. I have to say, he was right. On vinyl, in words, these guys seemed like the real deal to me. All the best and most basic, necessary ingredients are there: guitars, drums, bass, keyboard and gruff vocals belting out strong everyman lyrics. Passion in their hearts and […]

CPC Gangbangs @ the Hi-Dive

[photopress:cpc_1.jpg,full,pp_image] CPC Gangbangs’ energy burned bright and quick at the Hi-Dive on Sunday. Photo from MySpace. I went to Montreal once. I was told I would like it. In fact, it was the first time I had ever been to Canada at all. I was sort of expecting some kind of liberal paradise, rife with non-violence and full to the brim with chipper, bilingual men and women. After an intensive few days of aggressive strolling down all the quaintest streets, the hairs began to lift […]

Black Moth Super Rainbow @ the Oriental Theater

[photopress:blackmoth01.jpg,full,pp_image] Up for a psychedelic road show? You should have seen Black Moth Super Rainbow at the Oriental on Tuesday. Photos by Doug Beam. Understandably, there are plenty of shows to be had most nights of the week, and it’s sometimes hard to find your way over to the Oriental Theater. But as it stands, it is one of the best stages in town. Last Tuesday the theater attracted about 150 people for the electro-eccentric-pop headlining act Black Moth Super Rainbow. Like its name, this […]
