The late Terry Melcher may have summed up best when observing that if Brian Wilson had lived in the 1700's, he'd have been revered as one of the greatest musical geniuses that ever lived. Unfortunately, he existed in our disposable era when stardom is fleeting and celebrity is acknowledged with little or no thought.
There will NEVER be enough that can be said bout Brian Wilson. Calling him the greatest is even an understatement. Brilliant beyond any recognition, his music on a level thats ingrained permanently and infinitely.
The lineup was uber-fantastic. Bravo Steve!! My favorites were the Shook Twins and Ragbirds :)
It would have been nice to show a newer "clean and sober" video and photo instead of using ones from his destructive days. That would have been more appropriate considering the slant of the article.
That's what the article is for, Michael! Info in the "Playing" box.
What ? No mention one can see Todd Rundgren live in Colo Springs (perhaps only the 2nd time in his career in the Springs! He will be performing April 14th 2015 at Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs to promote his forthcoming release titled ‘Global’. Hear Global on Spotify: https://play.spotify.com/album/6qN2zOD3KBUtQ7fEv5AchH
Bet he'd trade a little 'substance' for $tardom related to his real estate issues.
Glorious, Forman, glorious.
Long live Finch! My favorite band.

I'd love to see StudioA64 on the list of venues. Open mic every Wednesday and live music most Fridays and Saturdays.
Thanks for the shout out for the TEQNiK G album release party this Saturday at The Black Sheep! It's going to be a very dope show! If you like hip hop you need to go to this show.

Very well put...Peppi was a personal friend. Not a mean bone in his body. Always supported local musicians, and would do anything for a cause.
Going to see Public Service Broadcasting at the Larimer Lounge on March 25, and X at the Marquis on April 3. Can't wait!
I think that of Montreal date is wrong.. it didn't coincide with either website. Which is a complete bummer.
