Posted By on Thu, Jan 3, 2019 at 1:00 AM

  • Tina Jacob
  • United States International Duo Piano Competition, Jan. 4-6, times vary, The Broadmoor, 1 Lake Ave., $5-$15, usidpc.org.
In its 20th year, this prestigious competition returns again to The Broadmoor hotel, where it attracts some of the most promising and established talent in the genre of duo piano. Unlike a regular recital, duo piano competitions feature pairs of performers who have learned compositions together to be played together. It requires a kind of synergy that creates tension you won’t find in solo performance, and it can be a delight to watch when the musicians have fun with their craft. Finalists will compete from all over the world, representing the best of the best in all age categories and from all backgrounds. Attendees can enjoy the 20th anniversary celebration on Friday night, concerts on Saturday and Sunday, the awards ceremony on Sunday evening, or all of the above, with weekend passes starting at an insanely reasonable $15 per person.

Unsilent Night offers a breath of fresh air when it comes to holiday tunes

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2018 at 1:00 AM

Phil Kline’s “Unsilent Night”, 5:45-6:45 p.m., Bancroft Park, 2408 W. Colorado Ave., free, unsilentnight.com. - TAYLOR DAVIDSON
  • Taylor Davidson
  • Phil Kline’s “Unsilent Night”, 5:45-6:45 p.m., Bancroft Park, 2408 W. Colorado Ave., free, unsilentnight.com.
Music this time of year can get tedious, and I’m not just talking about the annual “Baby It’s Cold Outside” controversy, or the tension between those who hear and appreciate Mariah Carey’s anti-capitalist messaging in “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and those who don’t. Matter stands, these days we hear the same 30 songs on store speakers each time we go shopping. That’s why Phil Kline’s “Unsilent Night” offers a breath of fresh air when it comes to holiday tunes. Experimental electronic composer Phil Kline created this unique listening experience in 1992, when he wanted to organize a mass caroling march as a kind of art installation. He composed a 45-minute soundscape for the season and copied it onto cassette tapes (remember those?), which were then distributed to friends with boomboxes. They then pressed play in tandem and walked the streets of Greenwich Village with speakers blaring, subjecting everyone within earshot to the sound. To participate in this now-annual event, you can still order one of four cassettes (each containing one part of the full soundscape), and load it into your old-fashioned boombox, but you can also stream the tracks on SoundCloud or download them directly to your phone. Then, with the aid of Bluetooth speakers or other amplification, you can join one of the 40-plus processions participating in this event throughout the country. Our local branch will gather in Bancroft Park in Old Colorado City. While the visual effect may not be the same with folks holding iPhones or Amazon Echoes over their heads in lieu of boomboxes, the sound experience should prove magical in its own way. “It’s the kind of event where more people [is] much better,” says local organizer Mark Jakusovszky. “It sounds incredible!”

Look, it’s a photo of Questlove celebrating the news that The Roots are coming back to Denver!

Well, actually, it isn’t. But to borrow a line from Facebook users whose furious political posts are shown to be fake: “Well, that’s something he WOULD do!”

In this case, you’re looking at the Roots drummer waving from a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but what’s important is that his band will indeed be coming to the Fillmore Auditorium on Feb. 23. Tickets go on sale Saturday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m., so act fast.

Fox Lake, Black Sheep, Jan. 16

Experts say that "alone time" is one of the keys to a couple’s success, which may explain why the Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have announced separate solo performances in Colorado. In any case, those aren’t the only shows of note that have been announced this week: Revered and reunited space-rock shoegazer outfit Spiritualized will be making their way here in the months ahead. So will Jenny Lewis and John Prine, the latter playing a Red Rocks show accompanied by the Colorado Symphony. Here’s the complete list:

Craig Campbell to headline local acoustic country benefit

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

abdaafb0-eee1-4e49-85f2-1d29feaff85b.png
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

Posted By on Fri, Nov 16, 2018 at 10:11 AM

MAGI BAGI / SHUTTERSTOCK
  • Magi Bagi / Shutterstock
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

SHUTTERSTOCK
  • Shutterstock
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.

Black Sheep will move Insane Clown Posse event inside

Posted By on Wed, Oct 24, 2018 at 12:44 PM

Colorado Springs Juggalos and Juggalettes who will be attending the Insane Clown Posse’s Oct. 27 show at the Black Sheep will no longer need to worry about the SPF rating of their facepaint, nor the warmth of their Hatchetman gear. The sold-out show, which was previewed in last week’s Indy, was originally to be held in the parking lot, but will now be moved inside the venue.

Black Sheep Marketing Director Rosanna Taylor attributes the move to recent weather fluctuations. “Even though it seems Saturday will be okay now, we thought it’d be best to move it indoors before it was too late,” she says. “It’s significantly colder at night than the last outdoor show we did close to this time last year, and considering the Faygo that the band utilizes, inside might be a better choice than cold and wet outside.”

Also on the plus side, the move inside will make the afternoon portion of the Dark Carnival that much darker, as opening acts Clownvis, Hex Rated, Seen Loc, #PressPlayDoe, Falli and Wicked Pimpz warm up the crowd to be serenaded and showered during Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope's headlining set.

The bromantic adventures of Kanye, Lydon and Trump

Posted By on Wed, Oct 24, 2018 at 1:00 AM

Kanye continues to mystify. - OVIDIU HRUBARU / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM

  • Kanye continues to mystify.
I’m sure that, in some parallel universe, Kanye means well.

In that world, he doesn’t bum-rush the stage to tell a 19-year-old musician that she doesn’t deserve the award she’s accepting, or tell his Twitter followers that it’s time to abolish the 13th Amendment. For all we know, their Kanye may even be coherent.

No such luck here in Bizarro World, where the rapper otherwise known as Yeezy, Evel Kanyevel and Swag King Cole delivered an Oct. 11 Oval Office soliloquy that must be seen — all 10 minutes of it — to be believed.

“There’s infinite amounts of universe, and there’s alternate universes,” declared Kanye early on, before moving on to the subject of his MAGA hat. “There was something about when I put this hat on that made me feel like Superman,” he told an uncharacteristically quiet Trump. “You made us Superman. That’s my favorite superhero. You made a Superman cape for me.”

The hip-hop impresario was clearly on a roll, slamming his fists on Trump’s desk, leaping up to show Donald and Jared his GIF of a hydrogen-powered airplane, and generally exhibiting the “dragon energy” that he famously said he shares with the president.

Through it all, Trump stared across his desk, trying to look thoughtful, or possibly keep a straight face, and appearing generally confused about how to respond.

“I’ll tell you what, that was pretty impressive,” Trump said after the monologue came to a close. “What do you do after that?”

Well, if you’re former Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd leader John Lydon, you don a crimson “Make America Great Again” T-shirt and lean out of a hotel window, scowling at the paparazzi. Engaging in his own bit of political theater last week, the crooner once known as Johnny Rotten looked to be twice as heavy as he was back in his punk-rock years, as though he’d lingered too long on the set of his Country Life Butter commercials.

Ultimately, Lydon’s role, like Kanye’s, is to play the contrarian. He’s condemned Trump and his Republican cohorts as “a crazy loony monster party,” while at other times sounding a note of empathy.

“In many ways,” Lydon said in a recent interview, “his disruptiveness has been creative.”

Or, perhaps, destructive. It all depends on what universe you happen to be in.

When a reunited New Kids on the Block came to Denver way back in 2008, the Indy interviewed opening act Lady Gaga, who at the time had yet to release her debut album.

Next June, the not-so-boy-band will be returning to the Pepsi Center with its “Mixtape Tour.” While Gaga will not be joining them, vintage opening acts Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, and Naught By Nature will likely add value for ‘80s music devotees.

Tickets for the event will go on sale this Friday, Oct. 12, at 10 a.m.

As for what's on the horizon, here's the latest rundown of new show announcements:

A Summer High, Black Sheep, Oct. 30
