    Heavenly Scent - The Skunk Motel is registering with a new generation of Denver dancers.

    Although Denver has been growing its own brand of DJs for as long as there have been clubs to mix records at, the last five years have witnessed a maturation of the scene and an explosion of urban record-slingers whose work rivals anything being done...

    The Jeru the Damaja/DJ Shadow gig April 9 at Boulder's Fox Theatre should have been memorable for musical reasons. Instead, what will stick in the minds of most of those who were present will be the actions of a handful of knuckleheads who helped per...

    Road Skalars

    Most acts that are part of the so-called third wave of ska promote themselves using a simple formula for success: touring, touring, touring. But Isaac Green and the Skalars, among the best of this new generation, recently discovered that the road can...

    Let It Bern - Dan Bern makes folk music. But you might like it anyway.

    Singer-songwriter Dan Bern is of the rather old-fashioned belief that words--as in lyrics--actually matter. Too bad most of the ones that show up in popular music are so banal. "We live in a very polite time in some ways," he says in a halting y...

    Veruca Salt Eight Arms to Hold You (Outpost/Minty Fresh) In my review of Veruca Salt's much-ballyhooed debut, 1994's American Thighs, I lamented the band's derivative nature (the Breeders and Sonic Youth were among those paid homage via imi...

    Go East, Young Men - Cephas & Wiggins are keeping a blues tradition alive.

    Guitarist/vocalist John Cephas and harmonica expert Phil Wiggins, collectively known as Cephas & Wiggins, play what's alternately called Tidewater music or Piedmont blues. And while they're not the only ones to do so, Cephas is frustrated that more y...

    Immortal Beloved

    In its three years of existence, the Fort Collins-based Immortal Dominion has received about as much attention from the mainstream media as Tom Selleck might from ticketholders at your average Indigo Girls concert. But that doesn't mean that the grou...

    Denver's Big Mike is not a man wanting for confidence. In describing the sort-of rebirth of his best-known band, Phantasmorgasm, he declares, "On a pompous, pretentious note, it's my intention to reclaim Denver from the dregs--from how dismal the sce...

    Pulpit Fiction

    To many observers, the 39 members of the Heaven's Gate sect who recently committed suicide in Rancho Santa Fe, California, are tragic figures. To the Rev. Billy C. Wirtz, they're something more: material. The good reverend, who specializes in comic e...

    That Louvin Feeling - Three new reissues serve as reminders of how good country music can be.

    The Spirit of 72

    "What we do could be interpreted as R&B in spirit," explains Gregg Foreman, guitarist and vocalist for the Delta 72. "But it's definitely not R&B in its purest form. I don't think anybody is going to confuse us with Sam and Dave or Babyface." Ame...

    As you know, Boulder is a community that tends to attract unique personalities--like Heaven's Gate guru Marshall Applewhite, for one. But Applewhite's wide-eyed, flighty blather about UFOs and recycling your containers represents only one of the city...

    Life Is a Cabaret - Welcome to the wonderful world of Cabaret Diosa.

    The members of Boulder's Cabaret Diosa rarely refer to themselves as a band. Rather, they see the aggregation as a place, like a Latin Brigadoon or Shangri-La that exists as if by magic for a night and then is gone again: a luxuriant, recurrent dream...

    The Shadow Knows - DJ Shadow makes instrumental music. But he can't keep quiet about the state of hip-hop.

    Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow, is a provocateur. Plenty of hip-hop artists are dismayed by what's happening to their chosen musical form, but most take a cautious, it's-all-good approach to remarking about it in the press. By contrast, Shadow goes out of...

    Have You Never Been Cello? - The anti-classical classical music of Rasputina.

    From the looks of Agniezska Rybska, Melora Creager and Julia Kent, the three cellists who make up New York's Rasputina, it would be easy to assume that they would be happiest at home, clad in corsets and tatted organdy in dim drawing rooms like the w...
