Chauncy Crandall, Mike Clark to play rooftop concert Friday

Chauncy Crandall
When we last visited the Charles Mansion back in May, it was for a rooftop concert featuring Conor Bourgal and Briffaut. And this coming Friday evening, history will repeat itself with another free show that's bound to be memorable in a "Let It Be Minus the Beatles" kind of way.

Friday's featured performers will be Chauncy Crandall — who as we noted in a recent Reverb column, is definitely one of Colorado's best singer-songwriters — as well as Mike Clark's SugarSounds, a band that also features Inaiah Lujan and Grant Sabin.

For those who aren't familiar with it, the "mansion" is located at 704 S. Cascade Ave. (right next to Shuga's) and is actually a modest house where a bunch of local musicians have been living. The show goes from 7 to 10 p.m., and you can get a perfect view from the restaurant's patio out back.

Meanwhile, here's my shaky iPhone video of Conor Bourgal and Joe Johnson playing last May's rooftop concert, which should give you some idea of what makes these shows so special.
