    Klaxons - Thursday, April 19, Larimer Lounge, 303-291-1007.

    U.K. scenesters understand that it's easier to come up with a new descriptor for a musical subgenre than it is to actually invent a fresh sound. Hence "new rave," which cleverly combines two tried-and-true handles in a manner that means everything an...

    Ari Hoenig Punk Bop Trio - Dazzle, Friday, April 20, and Saturday, April 21, 303-839-5100.

    Ari Hoenig may be an explosive, heavy-handed madman on a drum kit, but he's equally at home swinging lightly on a ballad or plunging into the outer extremes of an avant-jazz excursion. Hoenig is one of the more innovative drummers to come along since...

    Say Anything - Friday, April 20, Gothic Theatre, 1-866-468-7621.

    Say Anything's ...Is a Real Boy is the absolute zenith of MySpace-era pop punk. Deranged and volatile, with psychotically catchy choruses and anthemic chants and million-dollar hooks bursting in every direction, it's ten pounds of psycho in a five-po...

    Relient K - Saturday, April 21, Fillmore Auditorium, 303-830-8497.

    For members of the original hardcore generation, the concept of polite punk is oxymoronic in the extreme -- on par with family-friendly heavy metal and hip-hop done the Aaron Carter way. For listeners young enough to be free of historical hangups, ho...

    Nas - Wednesday, April 25, Fillmore Auditorium, 303-830-8497.

    On his latest effort, Hip-Hop Is Dead, Nas performs an autopsy on rap's corpse, and the results are ugly: Toothless rap pioneers-turned-crackheads and one-hit wonders who have no sense of history populate hip-hop's wasteland. By contemplating the dem...

    This Just In... - Electric Cowboy

    It's funny how the most trivial things can get a guy pumped up. For a dude who spends a lot of time in dives, a Thursday night in a country bar seemed like a nice diversion. Driving west down highway 36 toward the newly opened Electric Cowboy (88...

    Wild Game - Larimer Lounge

    Okay, pretend Nirvana never forced hair bands into early retirement -- it can be pretty bleak to think about. But if you listen to the recorded output of Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, you might hear something a little different. Not just soloing for th...

    Ciao! Wednesdays - The Lure

    I like narrow bars. The rectangular kind, with a long stretch of booths on one side and bar stools lined up on the other. Architectural slivers of space with claustrophobic pathways about three feet wide and thirty feet deep. The more cramped the...

    Talk of the Town - Shut up, already, and listen to this lesson in concert etiquette.

    Shut the hell up. Seriously, Chatty Cathy, clip your freaking string. Standing shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the crowd watching the Wheel warm up for Ian Cooke at the hi-dive last week, those words kept rolling across my mind like a Times...

    Pop Culture

    Rock historians regard the glory years of the Stooges to be 1969 and 1970, when the proto-punk act released The Stooges and Fun House, their two most influential albums. But according to Ron Asheton, the voluble guitarist for the combo, which is clos...

    Peeping Tom - Wednesday, April 18, Gothic Theatre, Englewood, 1-866-468-7621.

    For a musician to remain relevant two decades into his career is beyond remarkable. Far too many commercially successful artists become a parody of themselves after their second or third releases. Like sonically kindred visionaries the Flaming Lips a...

    ReAction - Will Baumgartner is back in Action.

    F. Scott Fitzgerald once declared that there are no second acts in American lives. Had the novelist ever met Will Baumgartner, however, he might not have been so quick to make such an assertion. The Action Figure 8 frontman has successfully battled ...

    Tax Evasion - How to live like a rock star -- and pay taxes like one, too.

    If national elections are the government's way of dicking you over every four years, Tax Day is its way of making sure you don't forget who has the biggest dick every single year. The worst part is that while you could spend the rest of the year wond...

    Greyboy's Anatomy - With their first album in nearly a decade, the soul-jazz Allstars are back in the groove.

    The Greyboy Allstars first came together in 1993 for the release of DJ Greyboy's Freestylin'. Greyboy (aka Andreas Stevens) wanted to have a live band play tracks from the album at his release party, so he assembled a group made up of saxophonist Kar...

    Timbaland - Timbaland Presents Shock Value Blackground/Interscope

    Tim Mosley's megalomania is totally justified. He's among the most consistently inventive producers of the past decade, and his profile has risen immeasurably thanks to recent hits on which he's both dial-twister and co-star. However, Shock Value pro...

    Amy Winehouse - Back to Black Universal

    Don't be fooled by Amy Winehouse's boozy-beehive, tabloid-fodder image. This gum-popping Londoner has the talent and substance necessary to back the substantial hype. With vocals that ooze a seductive combination of confidence, innocence and sleaze, ...

    Storytyme - Patchwork Quilt Dragons Tale Music

    Patchwork Quilt contradicts its title. Far from feeling scattershot, the disc is infinitely more consistent than its predecessor, RV Livin'. Yet it retains a lot of the lunacy that made the earlier album so likable. Musically, the theme is blues ro...

    Joseph Arthur & the Lonely Astronauts - Sound Bites
