A dam good show at the Gothic it was. Was wonderin if you have the song list they played? or if anybody else knows it.
They are really amazing...
But once the Indy writes about the new basement venue, it will get shut down. Happened before.
I am looking for Royal James Bennett who use to live in St. Petersburg Florida. Steve Cook 7274580555
Jeremy can't even play primus. I would say discounts him from being the les claypool of colorado springs
Congrats to Paramore who have infused the airwaves with something new and edgy, especially "Ignorance", which touches on painfully difficult relationships and perhaps deeper social and political issues than the lyrics may suggest. I would bet that even Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck could relate, after all, their outlet is "ignorance by choice" as a tool and bloodsucking on the ignorant as recreation.
Is anyone ever going to mention the Supersuckers playing at the Rocket Room this month?
I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to finally seeing NMA live. Simply put, they are one of the best bands in the world that you may not have ever heard of :)
While this interview does make mention of Jehovah's Witnesses, whether or not the followers of that religion qualify as a "cult" is not germane to this story. So we have deleted the comments related to that issue.
Well Mr. Nash, Obama can actually only speak in sentences when they are in front of him on a teleprompter. If not, he uses so many "uh, uh's" he frankly comes across as an idiot. We were very disappointed in the concert at Red Rocks. Give it up boys. You are way past your prime.
It should also be noted that you can pretty much stream every single Suburban Home Release on their website for FREE, before you buy it!!
just to add to worriedbandmembers comment...I also have a room at the shitpound...my band mates wont agree with me to leave but I am afraid my stuff is not safe there. The owner advertises he has security cameras but he doesnt he is never around to take care of things for the bands he does have...this place is a dump total dump...I want out of here...to all musicians do not come here it is shady and the building is run down he does not even have a sign outside that sas he is there...I would hide too if it was me.
Not sure about the comment that "back in the 80s and up through to today, Spot's production of Hüsker Dü's SST albums has been almost universally derided as lousy." Amazon customers all give "Zen Arcade" and "New Day Rising" either five stars (80%) or four stars (20%), which means both albums rate higher than Nirvana's "Nevermind."

I enjoy your column very much so I hope that you will print this in one of your upcoming editions. I think people should know. I was jamming at The Compund after reading your article above, lets just say I hope to warn any musician who needs a space to play to not go there I was disgusted by the operation of this place and even though I was warned by others to not go jam at this place I was trying to save a buck...well it is true whne people say you get what you pay for. I am going to spend the extra money and go to the Green Room where I was headed before. I hear great things from my peers about it and I needed to move right away.
So just a big fat buyer beware to the musicians in Colorado about The Compound...DO NOT DO IT.
Is this just about music? Or may I comment about the art scene?
Cottonwood Center for the Arts (427 E. Colorado Ave., www.cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com) is the biggest thing to hit this city in forever! Nowhere else can you find 80+ artists under one roof. They host an open house on the last Friday of every month and invite local bands/singers to perform (as a non-profit, the bands rely on tips but what a great way to get out into the public). And how about Stargazers Theatre & Event Center (10 S Parkside Dr.)? They've got some excellent performances all the time as well.
Why do you always leave theLoft out?
theElement was the same way.
I feel theLoft is doing far more to build the "scene" in Colorado Springs than all those places you listed combined. Even The Black Sheep gives them more credit than you do.
theLoft gives people like me something to belong to, something bigger than me to be a part of. They aren't just serving music to those already in the scene, they are paving the way into a non-musical community and inviting people you'd never reach with Reverb to be a part of our ever growing "Scene". I was not into music and bands before I became a theLoft regular, and now I don't know how I survived before. All I'm saying is, even without the back of the people that should be supporting them the most, you all at the independent, they are facilitating the growth of something fantastic. You should come check it out if you havent, there's a free Christmas in August family dinner on the 15th with some great local bands. I think you might like it, seeing as you write about the same bands every week.
This album is fantastic. I bought the Deluxe edition off their website and was glad I did. It includes a 25 page booklet with lyrics, photos and the inspiration behind each song. And to cap it off they listed the name of each person who bought this edition. How cool is that? Personally, I love it that Carly Simon cameos on Should I Pray? I think the author here is trying to be too cool in dissin' Ms Simon.
Adam!!! Yay, I found you on the first try! Jenny Garza here. Out on the scene!! Freshman @ PPCC however 29. Yay, to that because my music taste is diverse, and comes from experience, we'll say. Such as yours... I hear when it comes to the local scene you are where it's at. I am going to start covering the Union, for fun (for practice.) They don't mind me. I play nice. They think you and I would hit it off. Soooo, let's.
Can't find anyone else to get excited about this stuff with me Adam. Have a good feeling about you. We should team up. Or I will at least watch from a far for now. You are good. You are not afraid to throw your humor around, makes for fun, obviously. Eng Maj, BTW. We'll see what happens. I live near the Union so it's the perfect project for me. :) Be there Thursday?
