Bob Seger farewell tour, Iggy Azalea, and STS9 top new show announcements

Posted By on Wed, Sep 19, 2018 at 11:15 AM

nc_bobseger_pressimage.jpg
Unless Bob Seger is pulling one of those Ozzy Osbourne fake farewell stunts — which seems highly unlikely — this winter will be last call for fans to get their final fix of melancholy curtain closers like “Night Moves,” “Hollywood Nights,” and “We’ve Got Tonight.” Small wonder, since the Detroit native and various permutations of his Silver Bullet Band have been out on the road for more than half a century now. Seger’s "Travelin’ Man Tour" will be making a stop at the Pepsi Center on Feb. 17, and don’t be surprised if he dusts off a version of his 1974 near-hit “Get Out of Denver” for the occasion. Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 28.

Other newly announced shows this week include Miley Cyrus’s sister Noah, love-her-or-loathe-her rapper Iggy Azalea, and a reunited Night Ranger, whose overwrought rock ballad “Sister Christian” can still trigger disturbing memories of the creepy guy in “Boogie Nights” swaying around in his silk dressing grown. All that, plus a four-night run from STS9 to celebrate the end of 2018.

In the meantime, here’s this week’s full rundown of new show announcements:

Mos Generator, Streets of London, Denver, Oct. 9
Noah Cyrus, Summit Music Hall, Oct. 13
Dead Bars, Seventh Circle Collective, Denver, Oct. 19
Who’s Bad: Michael Jackson Experience, Black Sheep, Oct. 26

Jungle's For Ever is what all the cool kids will be listening to

Posted By on Sun, Sep 16, 2018 at 12:23 PM

jungle-for-ever.jpg

I usually blast Jungle while I’m cleaning my house. Their tunes are perfect get-down-and-deep-clean-the-tub motivation: upbeat, dance-y, almost singable. Recently, as I listened to their sophomore album For Ever (XL Recordings) — I found the soul collective’s sound still rang true. The new full length doesn't hold out on a few surprising changes devoted fans continue stick around for. 

One of those surprises is the moody, psychedelic ballad “House in LA” chronicling the story of For Ever’s trek through devastating heartbreak and materialism in a glittering, big city. The single came out a few months ago and originally didn’t appeal to Jungle’s aesthetic, but in the epic scheme that is For Ever, the song’s experimentation in crescendoing strings and low and slow percussion suddenly makes sense. 

“Pray,” another experimental track on the album, is a glamorous Hollywood anthem adapted to today's new age — if sultry bass doesn’t get you bopping along, nothing will. The tale of a dramatic Hollywood love affair continues into groovy singles Smile and Beat 54 (All Good Now), giving die hard fans resounding reminders of why they fell in love with Jungle in the first place. 

An ensemble of voices is what continues to push Jungle ahead of standard band set ups. Many diverse talents orchestrate the sound that allows Jungle to play with depth on this album. From disco nights choruses to the elegant horns, For Ever tests the waters, but still gives lovers of their self-titled album that infectious funky flow at the coattails of a hot summer season. 

Jungle will be hitting up Boulder Theater Sunday September 30th. A can’t-miss live performance. Anticipate leaving the venue sweaty and sore.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj keep beef alive with shoe throwing incident

Posted By on Mon, Sep 10, 2018 at 8:33 AM

Fashion week just got lot more interesting as the feud between rap divas Nicki Minaj and Cardi B escalated. - COURTESY OF ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT
  • Courtesy of Entertainment Tonight
  • Fashion week just got lot more interesting as the feud between rap divas Nicki Minaj and Cardi B escalated.

In case you haven't heard, rap "beefs" are still in fashion.

Last month, Cardi B was filmed at a VMA’s afterparty rapping an unreleased diss about Nicki Minaj. Then Friday night, at the Hapers Bazzar ICONS celebration, the saga continued shaking up attendees and fans on both sides.

The scuff was started by comments made about Cardi B’s infant, Kulture. On Friday, Cardi B reportedly threw a shoe (a red bottom, perhaps?) at Nicki, which led to a brief altercation broken up by security. Caught on camera, we spy Cardi lunging at Nicki as she is escorted out of the Plaza Hotel.

Cardi B responded with a iOS press release on Instagram below.

PERIOD.

A post shared by CARDIVENOM (@iamcardib) on

Now we just wait for Nicki’s response… Here’s to hoping that two of rap’s most chart topping artists can work it out.

The Side Door music space makes its low-key debut in former Blue Star spot

Posted By on Thu, Sep 6, 2018 at 7:41 PM

39861942_450754375407493_8328499455951110144_n.jpg
Earlier this week, Colorado Springs' The Side Door held an intimate show for a small audience of lucky music devotees. Helmed by Ivywild booker Marc Benning and restaurateur Joseph Coleman, the performance space, which is little more than a small room with a smaller sound system, made its maiden voyage on Sept. 4 with a performance by Haunted Windchimes spinoff In/Planes and Detroit native Alexandria Maniak’s solo project Shortly. Benning has booked two more low-key shows for next month; Chapel Hills' Americana band Mipso, who played Ivywild last year (see Indy interview) will take the stage on Oct. 12, followed by “singer-songwriter, spellcaster, human” Karl Blau, of K Records fame, on Oct. 14.

Kalyn Heffernan, Wheelchair Sports Camp emcee, running for Mayor of Denver

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2018 at 9:00 AM

cover1-5.jpg

While very few musicians get voted into political office, Kalyn Heffernan deserves to be one of them.

The Wheelchair Sports Camp rapper, who is also a disability rights activist and former Indy cover story subject, has filed her candidacy papers for Denver’s 2019 Mayoral election, and since released a series of videos that are well worth watching, regardless of your geographic voting status.

Here’s the transcript of the inaugural video:
"Ahhhh Denver. I love this city so much. So much in fact, everyone’s been telling me, “Kalyn, you should to run for mayor!” And I’m like, “Don’t be an ableist! … I can’t even walk.” And they’re like, “Whatever, SIT for mayor, Hancock’s got to go!” And they’re right. So right

But how in the hell am I supposed to work here? [Points at stairs.] Wait, If I’m Mayor can I ban stairs? Wait, can I at least ban assault rifles? Who else is gonna rally our communities together to make real change, like YESTERDAY!? Who else is gonna do this?

Okay, Day 1: End the urban camping ban. Day 2: It’s time for Denver to have rent control. Look, we need affordable, accessible housing before these realtors capitalize on our sunsets!

Oh, and what about women? Yeah, I don’t stand for any of these dudes abusing their power! Women are the majority and IT’S ABOUT TIME we occupy the same amount of space and power as all these scumbags.

I don’t stand for criminalizing people for being alive, for being houseless, or born somewhere else, for being a young person of color or playing music on the 16th Street Mall. I mean, unless you’re part of the 2% of real Native Americans here first, we’re all here illegally — and so is this capitol! So vote for me, ‘cause I won’t stand for any of this shit!”
You can watch all of the rapper's campaign videos at the Kalyn For Mayor YouTube channel. We think you'll agree that Heffernan’s politics are right on. What's more, her sharp wit can stand up to just about anyone out there on the comedy club circuit.

Come to think of it, forget the Mayor. Someone get this woman elected President!

Lola Black's album release show tops new concert announcements

LOLA BLACK
  • Lola Black
Some Denver acts never bother to play Colorado Springs; others come here regularly enough to build enthusiastic local followings. Multiple Westword Music Award winner Lola Black falls squarely into the latter camp. So it should come as no surprise that she’ll be playing the Black Sheep next month to celebrate her forthcoming album Nothing's Gonna Be Alright, which reunites her with Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper producer Bob Marlette. You can scroll down to view the pre-release video for its slow-burning title track, which finds the black-clad rocker roaming around town with a baseball bat and questionable intent. And while you’re at it, have a look at this week’s full rundown of newly announced shows:

Salem’s 1476, Seventh Circle Music Collective, Denver, Sept. 8
Lola Black album release show, Black Sheep, Oct. 13
Amigo the Devil, Marquis Theater, Denver, Oct. 30
The Marias and Triathalon, Marquis Theater, Denver, Nov. 7
Kweku Collins, Marquis Theater, Denver, Nov. 24
Boys Noize, Beta, Denver, Dec. 1

With Confidence and Broadside, Marquis Theater, Denver, Dec. 9
Il Divo, Bellco Theatre, Denver, Dec. 11

Meow Wolf is accepting DIY Fund applications to keep venue spaces open around the country

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2018 at 11:16 AM

RILEY BRATZLER
  • Riley Bratzler
Meow Wolf, the badass arts collective known for its DYI success and extraordinary installations, is back at it again with another round of its DIY Fund.

What is this Fund, you ask? It is an initiative to get DIY spaces all across the country funding to keep their spaces sustainable and in business.

The Fund is a direct response to the grisly fire of Oakland, CA’s Ghost Ship DIY space in 2016. The devastation of the fire at the space initiated a witch hunt, which forced Rhinoceropolis and Glob in Denver and the Spring's own Flux Capacitor to shutter their doors, and sent inhabitants into the streets for not being up to fire and safety codes.

The Flux has since found a sustainable model with the help of PPLD, but many DIY venues still struggle to find and maintain footing.  Meow Wolf, which recently announced a massive Denver installation, has been a DIY space since 2008 and may not have survived if it wasn’t for the backing of passionate investors and community members. So now they’re continuing to pay it forward in a big way.

If you’re a venue, performance space, art installation, or any creative endeavor, now is your chance to apply for a piece of the $250,000 pie. Application deadline is September 30, 2018.

For more information on the DIY Fund, check out the promotional video — featuring a number of beloved Springs artists — here:

Dio's estate auction will include velour robe, leather shinguards and animatronic sphinx

Posted By on Fri, Aug 17, 2018 at 5:00 PM

297326_8.jpg


If you read last issue’s Dio Disciples interview, you most likely know that the late metal icon’s official tribute band hit Colorado Springs’ Sunshine Studios on Friday, Aug. 17. What you probably don’t know is that a Ronnie James Dio estate auction will be held online Sept. 14-15.

The newly announced event includes some fairly intimate offerings. If, for instance, you want to don Ronnie’s clothing, you can bid on:

• A pair of the singer's Rainbow-era moon and stars patchwork jeans (estimated value $2,000–$4,000)

• Dio’s violet suede vest with tails and red leather shin guards from the Sacred Heart Tour ($2,000–$4,000)

• Or, for an even more cozy experience, the personalized Black Sabbath hooded velour robe that Ronnie regularly wore backstage on his Mob Rules Tour ($1,000–$2,000).

There’s more, of course, including original album art, custom guitars, a rolling wardrobe case, and, best of all, oversized animatronic stage props, including a sphinx, a knight in armor, and a scary spider.

You can find complete details, including information on a preview exhibition showing in New York City, at the Ronnie James Dio auction site.

The 360-degree video that turned me on to Tank and The Bangas

Posted By on Thu, Aug 9, 2018 at 8:17 PM

The band's Ogden Theatre show goes on sale Aug. 10. - STERLING MUNKSGARD / SHUTTERSTOCK

  • The band's Ogden Theatre show goes on sale Aug. 10.

I have to confess that the first time I stumbled upon Tank and The Bangas — who open for Nathaniel Rateliff at Red Rocks Aug. 22 and then return to Colorado to headline the Ogden with Big Freedia on Nov. 2 — I kind of hated them.

But that would be the case with any number of bands who get ushered out onto the tiny makeshift stage during half-time at a New Orleans Pelicans game. This thankless arena gig is typically given to Eastern European acrobats and plate spinners, and with good reason: The Smoothie King Center's sound system is third-rate, the echoes incurable, the audience inattentive. Also, the speaker on my TV isn’t all that good and — bottom line — their whole act went right over my head.

Today, I’m happy to report that I’ve seen the light, and I owe my 180-degree turn to the 360-degree video released by Hard Road Pictures that you'll find embedded below. Forget virtual reality, this is a headache-free, wonderfully immersive experience that’ll make you feel like you’re actually in New Orleans at their hometown Gasa Gasa. Have fun zooming in and around the club, watching anyone and everyone, onstage or off, as this totally unique band — arguably among the most interesting since Janelle Monae came on the scene —  works its fans into a frenzy.

Mostly, though, you’ll want to focus on the two women at centerstage: Tank is an endearingly weird and remarkably talented singer, rapper and spoken word artist. Her hype-woman Anjelika "Jelly" Joseph, meanwhile, is a soulful backing vocalist with an ability to work a crowd that’s nothing short of enthralling. If you go far enough down the internet rabbit hole, you’ll discover that she was also a contestant on American Idol’s 2015 season, and that Jennifer Lopez broke into tears when she was given the boot. No matter. The shallow pop world’s loss is our gain.

Colorado fans should also note that tickets for the Ogden show go on sale Friday, Aug. 10, at 10 a.m. The Red Rocks gig sold out, and this one will, too.

Meanwhile, here’s the video. Be sure to watch it fullscreen:

If you’re a fan of what the record industry has designated “mainstream rock,” you can rejoice in the fact that the 1stBANK Center just announced a December 1 date with Halestorm, the band that in recent years has topped that particular chart with their hits “Freak Like Me,” “Apocalyptic,” “Amen” and, earlier this year, “Uncomfortable.”

Then again, if your rejoicing preferences lean more toward Christian pop, you could just stay closer to home and see John Tesh at Springs Church on Oct. 11. And as long as you’re in a spiritual mood, don’t miss the African Children’s Choir, who are featured in this week’s Indy music interview, when they play a free concert this coming Sunday at Colorado Springs’ Bethel Lutheran Church.
