Vocals soared through the open amphitheater into the night, and when James told the audience that he could "feel the forces of the universe conspiring in our favor," the tipping point had been reached.

Colorado Springs native Laura Veirs' latest disc, "July Flame," is an early contender for ones of 2010's best releases. Laura Veirs could have easily canceled the show — and if she were feeling less confident, she damn well would have.
