    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    P.J. Harvey, with Live and Veruca Salt, Wednesday, August 23, at Red Rocks, is a rarity in contemporary pop music: an artist whose integrity and love of creative risk are virtually unassailable. As demonstrated by recordings such as Rid of Me and las...

    THE DAISY CHAIN - FROM OBSCURITY TO A TOUCH OF NOTORIETY WITH TRIPPING DAISY.

    It's unlikely that every allegedly autobiographical story recounted by Tim DeLaughter, guitarist and vocalist for the Dallas-based band Tripping Daisy, is true. But he tells his tales with such conviction and with so much twangy, ingenuous charm that...

    WHAT'S YOUR SIGN?

    In Boulder's neohippie scene, there's a thin line between playing original music and merely regurgitating a popular sound. However, the members of Aquarian Voodoo have found a way to skirt this problem--by doing both at once. The performers (lead...

    THE VSS ENTERPRISE

    Sonny Kay is as punk rock as anyone in Colorado. Ask him if he agrees, however, and he'll deny it. "No matter what, we're always going to be considered relative to punk," he says of his band, the VSS. "But just for me, personally, what's considered p...
