Craig Campbell to headline local acoustic country benefit

Posted By on Thu, Nov 29, 2018 at 12:28 PM

For Colorado Springs’ contemporary country fans, the feel-good concert of the season is very likely to be Y96.9’s Acoustic Christmas benefit for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Headliner Craig Campbell, best-known for his heart-tugging 2010 single “Family Man” (not to be confused with Hall & Oates’ “Family Man,” which was not heart-tugging at all), soon went on to become a Grand Ole Opry regular. Rolling Stone has hailed his latest single, “See You Try," as a "big, bold song that shoots for the nosebleed seats of arenas everywhere.”

The Dec. 6 event at Cowboys Night Club will also feature performances from llian Jacqueline, Seth Ennis, Dylan Schneider, and Ashlee & The Longshot Revival.

Rolling Stones fan club lists Denver show

Are the best-know, longest-lived bad boys of the British Invasion coming to Denver?

Most likely, they are. And not just because a banner with the Rolling Stones logo — yes, the one with the pouty lips and protruding tongue — was recently plastered on the side of Mile High Stadium, albeit for just one day.

So far, the Stones folks have been, let's say, tight-lipped when it comes to confirming a potential U.S. tour. But the band’s fan club site has already posted a schedule of “rumored” dates.

Another hint can be found on the band's official site, which is being less that coy when it comes to encouraging visitors to sign up for its mailing list: "DON’T MISS OUT, AS YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT COULD BE COMING!" (All-caps theirs.)

Meanwhile, here's the fan club's full list:

Colorado to become three-week staging ground for Crescent City metallions

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2018 at 1:58 PM

The next three Saturdays will be a celebration filled with incestuous joy for Coloradans who are into New Orleans metal.

First up is NOLA native Phil Anselmo, who’ll be appearing with his band Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals at the Black Sheep this Saturday, Nov. 3.

The following week, on Nov. 10, Mike IX Williams – who joined Anselmo and Hank III in their incendiary side-project Arson Anthem - will bring his Crescent City sludge-core outfit Eyehategod to the same venue as part of the band's 30th anniversary tour.

And finally, if all that still isn’t enough for you, Nov. 17 will find Denver’s Marquis Theater playing host to Goatwhore, who have served as ambassadors of the city’s metal scene for the past two decades.

Coincidence or conspiracy? You decide.

On a related note, you can read the Indy’s interview with Mike IX — about death, numerology and stuff — in our next issue, available at better newsstands and internets on Nov. 7.
