  • Long story short

    Having been lucky enough to cover the Olympics on six previous occasions, with the seventh coming now at the 2010 Winter Games, I've heard one question repeatedly: What's your favorite Olympic moment?

  • Miller takes bronze in men's downhill

    Bode Millerhas won the bronze medal in the Winter Olympics men's downhill with a run that was just 9/100ths of a second away from gold.

    In yet another sign of the apocalypse, Winger has been booked to play Cowboys on June 24. Survivors from the Golden Age of Hair Bands, the band doesn’t have a whole lot to do with country music — nothing, in fact — and neither does opening warhorse April Wine, but that’s what makes this such a beautiful, you know, we-are-the-world-kinda-thing. Winger was so famous, in fact, that Lars Ulrich through a dart at a Winger poster in a Metallica video and MTV cartoon characters Beavis and Butthead repeatedly derided the band’s rawk credentials.

  • Memorial Daze

    Not a whole lot lined up for Red Rocks yet, apart from the obligatory Big Head Todd and String Cheese dates. (Exciting, I know.) But there is one new package date you might want to jump on when tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10 AM. That would be the Memorial Day weekend “Bisco Inferno” show, featuring the Disco Biscuits, the Glitch Mob, Booka Shade, Pnuma Trio, Aeroplane and a deejay set from the Crystal Method. After all, what better way to commemorate those who gave their lives for this country than to crack glow sticks, gobble ecstasy and party like it's 1989?
