Re: “Insane Clown Posse at The Black Sheep show preview

Why does the music man writer here seem to dislike or distrust the FBI? I guess it must be because of political leanings of the Indy and they are forcing the boy to think as the editor does. A real rock and roll rebel! Stick it the man! Up against the wall motherfucker! Who Are The Brain Police???

Re: “Singer-songwriter Sean Anglum's sound advice

My thanks to Bill Forman for the opportunity to give some Sound Advice. An important ingredient to my online discovery, Bennett Wilson Poole, is the pedigree of Tony Poole as the leader of the great 70s/80s powerhouse folk-rock group, Starry Eyed and Laughing. I know that bit ended up on the editor's floor, but that cred puts the muscle in this new trio. Thanks again, Bill. - Sean A.

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

I would LOVE for this to be successful. Wondering where 700 people will park when they go catch a show?

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

Music coming soon to some place not quite open... fun has been delayed but promised at a later date.
Colorado Springs has always in my experience been a fairly miserable place for live music and its getting worse than ever. Obviously the wanting to book acts that would play Denver means there is really no local musicians that can hold anyone's interest. And starting at 7PM and done at 11 is for schoolkids. Now we also have most bars closing at 12 or earlier, no smoking, poorly trained bartenders, karaoke listed as live music, cliquish open mics, rehearsed "jam sessions" but really no live music except Friday and Saturday except for the odd late afternoon last minute drum circles. I laughed awhile back reading here how some developer wanted to make this town another Austin Texas! What? 200 bands a night every night all over the city?! And the ballpark downtown are what you is and ain't what you're not...

Re: “Daniel Burton on resurrecting Early Day Miners and being compared to William Faulkner

As someone who's overly familiar with New Orleans area from a young age, I just don't get all the fascination. It's an ugly, smelly, hot, politically corrupt, violent, environmentally-nightmarish place - and the food is overrated (seriously overrated). And sorry, but Mardi Gras is totally racist and stupid. I've been to more parades than I can remember and have relatives who are members of these "societies" and ride the floats.

The people who find artistic inspiration in this place can find it in any urban shit hole along with the associated "culture" it attracts - booze, smack, hookers, thugs, corrupt cops, crooked politicians, and overpriced food. I totally avoid NO when at all possible (Louisiana too, for that matter). Then again, I find the whole deep South area of the Gulf Coast to be a conservative backwater in need of federal occupation, so...

Re: “Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson remixes prog-rock's past

Leaving hard rock came easy in 2005, jazz, country, the drum beat led them to an open door. Why? Myb college years were the lite when seeing, hearing the first tours by The Police, U2, ABBA, & the list began at my UC Davis' "Coffee House" west of Sacramento from 1977-1982. It went away after graduating into modern jazz. Red Rocks just ovee the Hogback produced great nites filled with grunge & replayed classic rock, bluegrass, & country but sadly it souumded the same. I needed change. Who gave me that? In 2004 at the Fillmore in Denver on my birthday,Jan 27. Mr. Bowie opened a new door for me. Easily a favorite show among many. I only wished why I hadn't seen his 3 notes here. What legend will do this? It was his performance,slong list & at stage event that made it crystal clear. He's giving us prog-rock. Small Denver & Boulder theaters became the venues for the proper priced events. There was a huge gap between the proper Bowie show & other big arena or Red Rock shows. Then by chance I learned about Porcupine Tree on 10/15, 2005, @ The Fox in Boulder. It was though Mr.Bowie had shined the lite in my eyes, mind, & ears. Steven Wilson & PT played to us in the smallest of Denver metro venues. I said this it, the years of music fun are all rolled together. I only wished to follow them but my job made it impossible. In 2007 PT returned to The Fox with their new album & world tour. Could this be, a UK prog-rock group wad shining the way. Steven did & continues to do as described & promotes. Then PT separated to give each member their time to play
Naturally SW made his move to do his thing & each of three groups. His talent, production, & style of giving his band mates their way to play. This is the key. This is why older bands come to SW fotr his remixes. Simply he listens & replies on the same frequency.
We see this when he plays to us. He literally waves & points to direct song-stage action. I'd really never seen this in 30+ years from the big Day on the Green events by Led Zeppelin. Plant & Page didn't have it so no wonder why a 50 year reunion is difficult.
I can see SW unite with PT & the complete slate with his legendary band remixes. He'll join with a larger variety than ever seen including all types if music. SW works his electronics taught to him by his father without an ego. His basement is the venue for the vast dominion. The question, will hw remix Mr. Bowie, Prince, ABBA, ahain the list can only grow. My belief is SW will create the Grammy catagory for best production. Will there be Sound Engineering degrees dedicate to him beginning in the UK then worldwide? As a PE from the the University of CA, the time is set. My UCD was the first to give degrees in viticulture, enology, & beer fermentation. The door is open for creative genius. SW will step back & NEVER show an ego. The award for his gift is the remixing of the growing list. SW told us he's not sure how long he'll continue writing & performing. He told us at the May 5th Ogden Theater show he'd play to 5,000 of us at Red Rocks next year in his new album tour if the City of Denver & the production company agrees. We applauded & cheered. I can only see the plus in it as an older Rock's customer. I'll be there regardless of who will or not hoping me.
Enjoy with an open mind...& heart.
Peter Bryon

Re: “Environmentalist Cameron Brown hauls a grand piano out to Garden of the Gods at sunrise

Shannon, there is no historical proof that Native Americans considered Garden of the Gods as sacred ground. I am also a native and the park needs to be protected on all levels. I'm sure there was no impact to have this guy play his piano in the Garden but who's to say you traipsing all over the park exploring caves and not staying on designated paths is not affecting the park's natural balance. There has to be park guidelines in place to protect this amazing gift to our city. Charles Elliott Perkins donated the park to the City of Colorado Springs so the public can enjoy this open space - not just for locals but tourists to our community as well.

Re: “Environmentalist Cameron Brown hauls a grand piano out to Garden of the Gods at sunrise

Doesn't anyone else remember that the Garden of the Godds is a Native American holy place? All I ever hear about is the tourist attraction bullshit. Being native and being told that I have to stay on their man made paths, and I can't visit caves and secret places shown to me by my grandfather. I am not allowed to show my grandchildren the same places. Isn't freedom of religion a big deal for you people? Only if your religious holy places are man made or don't interfere with tourism. No one knows anything anymore.

Re: “Environmentalist Cameron Brown hauls a grand piano out to Garden of the Gods at sunrise

"I had been traveling around the world for 18 months, explains Brown, who wrote the environmentally conscious song on the road."

Great, another "artist" with a message of hope. There's nothing environmentally conscious about traveling the world using insane amounts of resources telling us what we've already heard a million times about being aware of our impact on the earth. You just epitomize the very excess scientists (not environmentalists) have been telling us we need to address for nearly 60 years...I guess some people never learn.

It's the ecologically responsible, every day actions of millions of people that can change our seemingly doomed fate, not another personality reminding us of what we already know...ugg.

How so uninspiring and hypocritical.

Re: “Woodshed Red's equipment trailer was stolen and they're asking for your help

Offer a cash reward for its return with stipulation that the info must go through police department. Thieves will roll over on each other for cash faster than they can steal a trailer.
Make the reward worth the trouble- $1000.00
Lots of trailers are being stolen and that is along with vehicles and metals. It is an indication of the job growth here which the Indy keeps saying is just swell. yeah, right
What instruments are gone so we know when one is being offered to us...
