Feature: 50 years after debut, Bob Dylan still fascinates
Fifty years ago this week, a baby-faced kid from Minnesota released his first record album. While its title bore the musician's name, the music, 13 tracks in all, looked backward as much as it did forward.
Live review: Radiohead @ the 1stBank Center
Halfway through Radiohead's Coachella-prep show at the 1stBank Center on Tuesday, the band settled into a surprisingly faithful "Karma Police" -- and a strange thing happened at the smallish suburban arena.
Profile: Denver jazz legend Purnell Steen
By William Porter The Denver Post Purnell Steen has been a fixture on Denver's thriving jazz scene for decades, playing piano in venues such as Dazzle and the Burnsley Hotel.
Live review: Lady Antebellum @ the Pepsi Center
Country act Lady Antebellum headlined a thoroughly packed Pepsi Center on Wednesday night, and the band’s set was a skillful, if too-familiar, experiment with the extremes.
The Reverb Interview: Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum
When country trio Lady Antebellum broke wide open, fans fell in love with the instantly likable booty-call ballad "Need You Now." The song had the band's Hillary Scott pleading: "It's a quarter after 1, I'm a little drunk, and I need you now.

A man suspected of calling in a bomb threat to Belly Up Aspen after he was denied entry to the sold-out Zeds Dead concert was arrested Tuesday night in Aspen.
Live review: The Low Anthem @ the Larimer Lounge
The Low Anthem can veer from church choir to rambling train, from harmonizing around a microphone that looks like an A.M. radio relic to pulling off organ-driven stomps about hippies with bad names.
Live review: Sade, John Legend @ the Pepsi Center
It is impossible to pick a single moment that defined Sade's rich, soulful set at the Pepsi Center on Thursday, part of the band's first tour in a decade.

Poll of the Week: Dancing and punching
Four polls! We're breaking ground here! Four polls! Summer's in the air, and with summer comes dancing...and punching... and, maybe, slapping... I talked about these polls with a coworker, who told me the story of the last time she slapped someone.

Feature: Tennis, at break point: On the road with Denver’s next big breakout
Meet Tennis, an indie-rock daydream. The band members are young and adorable. They wear cool clothes that complement their retro pop sound. They are swooned over by bloggers, and their back story is a little too good to be true (but by all accounts, is).
Photo essay: Colin Hay @ L2 Arts and Culture Center
From beginning to end on Wednesday night, Colin Hay wove together a beautiful mix of melody and feeling. Although he did include three or four hit songs from his Men at Work days, including "Down Under" and "Who Can It Be Now," most of the show consisted of music from his latest album "American Sunshine." One of the featured songs "I came into your store" is about an affair, "that she didn't know about", Hay joked with the audience.
Live review: Against Me! @ the Black Sheep
So I'm not going to try to B.S. anyone into believing I know anything about the Florida punk band Against Me!, which put on a sweaty, bruise-and-brews-a-thon on Thursday night at the sold-out Black Sheep in Colorado Springs.
Live review: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings @ the Boulder Theater
With twice the soul and probably 100 times the reliability, you should look no further than Sharon Jones when the itch for live soul music needs scratching.
Live review: Band of Horses @ the Fox Theatre, Day 1
Strong, unique vocals, catching - haunting - melodies, shimmering reverb drenched guitars and anthemic rhythms - this is a recipe for beautiful, ecstatic pop, or so it would seem.
