Yeeeeah. Geez, cuz you know what there's not enough of? Indie folk. I just never get tired of it. Hey Bill, did you like, loooove The Strokes ten years ago? Like they were just so visceral and raw? Instead of spending half your article going down on Haunted Windchimes, you could cover everything else happening this week, which is a ton. But, on second thought, don't. There's bands in town that're busy building a scene, but if you don't dig around, you'll never find it. But hey, yuppies and cc kids like Haunted Windchimes, so I guess it makes it easy on you, huh?
oops i said saturday too many times. argh there i go again.
Tall City performs Saturday at the Lakehouse Festival in Fort Collins saturday with Dear Rabbit, and Tuesday night at Walnut Room (Denver) with Chella Negro!
Primo Blend, The Knightbeats, and Nick Heraeu, formerly of Porcelain Hand Jive at Meadow Muffins saturday night! Dubbed out cali style reggae all night!!! Come get down!
I would like El Toro to win The Indy Award.
Also, as far as local shows, you "forgot" to metion local hip hop/reggae at the Black Sheep on Saturday. Bullheaded, Primo Blend, IB Hustles and Chuck City!!!
Boo-ya Bill. Boo-ya. Pretty sure you just got SCHOOLED!!!
As the manager and programmer of KEPC I want to be sure you know Bill, we do backsell or frontsell every song when there is a student intern on the air. I push the importance of that to them every day. We have a playlist of over 6500 song titles from alternative and local artists. And it's a pleasure to be one of the only stations playing these local artists. The student personalities do a wonderful job of educating the listeners to new music. If there isn't a live person on the air, listeners know they can email me at any time and I find that music for them. Some of my students pointed out this article to me and they didn't appreciate your comment. We know the 13th century part was humorous, but give the Pikes
Peak Community College Radio and TV students credit for working hard when they are on the air.
Obviously you do listen at times Bill and we all appreciate that! We are the only place in town to find this variety of alternative and local talent. Many leave the Springs and continue listening on the Internet in their new town. But my guess is they didn't have that luxury in the 13th century! Glad they do today...and be watching for an extended playlist on our website soon for all those times you have missed the title and artist!
Joe's got my vote....
Adam.... naz told me about the history behind the 'Hobo Nickels' your adventure sounds like a gas.... good luck and enjoy the freedom to just be... look forward to reading or viewing your documentary.... jim from pueblo
The Genuwines are just a bit fast and upbeat for Isakov. And actually I just heard an illuminati song that changed my mind a bit. So take my prior post with a grain of salt.
Actually, I would disagree with Adam's defining the Genuwines as "country-pop." I think they're more like alt-folk with a bit of a country feel, thus complementing indie folk rocker Isakov quite well.
Genuwines with Isakov? Illuminati with Apples in Stereo? Is this town trying to show the world that we have no idea how to match local bands with touring acts? Nothing wrong with those two local bands, but wisdom on the streets woulda put the Changing Colors with Isakov and El Toro with Apples; seems like a better fit, eh? These two shows are going to draw people that don't see many local bands and appealing to their taste could've done a lot for the right local bands.
Thanks Adam. You're awesome and we appreciate it.
dude Stab Crew had to cancel this show. But our counterparts 99 Bottles are playing at the Union Station on Saturday
If it's so easy to put together, why are you're posting on the internet rather than out there making it big? I'm just guessing that opening for Arlo Guthrie gets you a pretty big check.
What's so special about the Windchimes is that they're awesome people who write great songs and they're one of our community's best hopes for success.
Haha, I love the comment above me. Yeah, what's so special about the haunted wind chimes? They play slow boring mediocre folk that wouldn't be hard to put together at all.
At first I was concerned that perhaps this week's column might not mention the Haunted Windchimes. I was concerned that perhaps you and the Windchimes had fallen out of touch...that perhaps, they were no longer your golden children. I thought maybe, just maybe, bands other than those in Adam Leech's magic circle of specialness might get a mention. Thank goodness I stuck around until the end to see that your beloved Windchimes are still in your life.
Thanks so much Adam!!
Also, this particular Ska Skank Redemption is from Fort Collins, Colorado, not San Diego. We can only wish we were that cool :)
