Mr K: crapola on a stick!
Sorry, but Jeff Miller is dead wrong. Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, and probably many other rockers always played acoustics.
When Bob Dylan played acoustic guitar he was famous as a folk singer. It was at the prestigious Newport Folk Festival that Dylan played half of his set on acoustic guitar, and brought out an electric band to play the second half. He was booed off stage. You cannot begin to understand the betrayal his many fans felt to see him "sell out" if you were not there.
What Bob Dylan taught us, if anything, is that you cannot play folk music on electric guitar because it automatically becomes rock and roll. (Although hyphen lovers call it folk-rock.)
Seems like someone would figure it out and get The Old 97's and the original Twangmeister, Duane Eddy, in the studio together.
I'm not sure who tagged that Shovels & Rope review with "File next to Dixie Chicks, Sugarland," but those are not the comparisons I made when I wrote it ... I'd align them far more closely to Hayes Carll or Old 97's. Not that there's anything wrong with those artists, but this duo is about as far from Nashville slickness as they can get. And they like it that way.
Great stuff, Bill. Also I want to remind everyone that on Friday (7/27) The Tickle Mafia (from Denver) will be performing with Charlie Milo Trio at the Zodiac (230 e pueblo on the corner of Wahsatch and Cimmeron). Doors at 8pm, show starts at 9pm with an acoustic set on the back patio from CM3. Also, the night will feature poetry from Angelique White between sets, and some special friends of ours sitting in during the electric set: DJ Gravity, Big Ro, Aeryk Parker, Benito Vena, Kevin from Fidel Redstar, Kris Harlow and Tony Colvin! We will also have gourmet cupcakes from Angela Buchannan available at the merch table. Yum! See you all there!

Bil, you forgot to mention that one of the most engaging live acts in metal is in town tonight @ the Black Sheep, Valient Thorr.
Saw KISS last year with my kids. Tried to explain to them that it was as much about the showmanship as the music. It was awesome. awesome close seats for $50 a tickets bought outside 5 mins before show started at
If I had the chance to see motley I would want to be more close.
really happy that this station was launched and that there is a focus being placed on local music what Brian has done launching the website is awesome, and Thank You to Bill Forman for recognizing local talent. - Griffin Coldiron ( from Sworn Enemys )

Chris Forsythe is the MAN! He is a very important fixture in the Colorado Springs music scene, and we are lucky to have him here!
Does the ego thing include Fred? Because that may be the most egoless, nice guy musician I have ever met. I first spoke with him when he was touring with The Color Fred and then again when he came through as part of The Lemonheads backing band, not only did he remember our conversation from years before but he was just as enthusiastic and cool as I remembered, seemed like he had nothing but good to say about anyone he had ever played with
The dancer is this video is 11 year old hip hop dancer, Emily Hoffman. She lives and trains in the LA area.
good article.Having had a long association with the band ,I'm thrilled that they still play occasionally and even happier when I can see them. If you like good Punk and live near Denver,This is rare opportunity to view the Mutants live. GO!
