Playing Around: Malcolm Lucard and Friends

Malcolm quit his day job and now he's throwing crazy parties at The Utopia Cafe. Well, OK, maybe not crazy, but pretty damn folksy.

A fine guitarist and sometimes wacky singer, local favorite Malcolm Lucard delivers a nice dose of down-home folk music. Keeping in stride with singer-songwriters both new and old, Malcolm's repertoire includes a nice balance of honesty, criticism and humor. Listen to his lyrics and learn a thing or two about him -- like how he knew he and his wife were meant to be in his popular love song "Smelly Toes," and how he feared fatherhood in "She Wants One."

But enough about Malcolm. Like I said, this is going to be a party and there is quite the local lineup -- ideal, I might add, for the makings of an excellent late-night jam.

Hailing from all over the globe but recently settling in the Springs, Dan Lehman will be joining the fun. A meticulous, fingerpicking wonder combining bass lines, rhythm and melody simultaneously, he's also played with the likes of Ani DiFranco and The String Cheese Incident. Malcolm has also rounded up two local faces that you probably haven't seen on stage in a while: Steve Miles from The Folklore Center will be rippin' it up on his mandolin and Mimo Orosco from Colorado Springs Music is going to strum the guitar and sing a few tunes. Greg Borom and his band will be raising the decibels a bit, and the guitarist for Boondoggle, Rock Star Charlie, will also strut his stuff. There's no cover; call 633-1080 for more.
