Chimney Choir 

When: Wed., April 3, 7 p.m. 2013

In a world full of neo-gypsy bands performing ironic covers of Queen and Talking Heads songs, you'd be forgiven for expecting Chimney Choir's "Ace of Spades" to be an arch homage to the Motörhead anthem of the same name. Actually, it's just one of many eclectic originals on the Denver art-folk trio's beguiling debut album, recorded last year before a live audience in an old pipe-organ chapel. The group's broad musical scope is also reflected in its instrumentation, which ranges from flute to banjo, accordion to piano, even the occasional synthesizer and suitcase. Factor in the stunning three-part-harmonies that have made Chimney Choir and the Haunted Windchimes mutual admirers, and it can all get pretty magical. Catch them at 7:30 tonight for free at Front Range Barbeque (2330 W. Colorado Ave., frbbq.com). — Bill Forman
