    Waxing Rhapsodic

    Although I'm familiar with Curtain's hits -- "Allentown," "Pressure" and "Goodnight Saigon" -- honestly, I'd never ventured beyond that. And I suspect that I'm not alone. Klosterman, however, contends that Joel's genius lies in deep cuts. Joel's gift...

    'Space Case - MySpace can be soul-sucking, but it has its upsides.

    Thank God for MySpace. If it weren't for MySpace, I know some people who wouldn't have any friends. At all. That's not just a witty T-shirt slogan; it's gospel. MySpace can be more than a little soul-sucking: I've seen it consume lives, World of War...

    Bros N the Hood - The Brotherhood of Dae Han

    I'm going to make a quick hypothesis here," says Jeff Wiant. "One of us is going to die on stage tonight. This is not a large stage." Or a stage at all, really. It's just after 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday at Surfside 7 in Fort Collins, and the Brother...

    Speed Dealers - Megadeth is still heavy after all these years.

    One of the last speed-metal bands from the golden age, Megadeth remains forever fast and furious in form and function. The band's latest album, United Abominations, goes old-school, eschewing the overblown studio production and soaring anthems of rec...

    Books on Tape - The Books get visual.

    Paul de Jong and Nick Zammuto formed the Books in 2000, shortly after being introduced by a friend. The two were drawn together by their mutual love of collecting and manipulating the sounds around them: De Jong was into sampling old movies and vinyl...

    Hellyeah - Hellyeah Epic

    Former Pantera pounder Vinnie Paul hasn't made much noise of late, and for good reason: His brother and bandmate, Dimebag Darrell Abbott, was murdered on stage in late 2004. Hellyeah marks Paul's return, and his stick work is as fierce as ever. If on...

    The Still City - These Songs Are Walls Self-released

    Why does anyone play music? To feel better, to feel worse, to feel something? There are no answers, no reasonable explanations, but foolish people, beyond their better judgment, keep falling for that rock-and-roll devil anyway. Which, for the rest of...

    Bright Eyes - Saturday, April 28, Buell Theatre, 303-830-8497.

    Although singer-songwriter Conor Oberst, whose band shares this bill with Oakley Hall and McCarthy Trenching, has been called a genius repeatedly in recent years, that designation felt premature. He's certainly made interesting CDs, but his early eff...

    DJ Shadow - Sunday, April 29, Ogden Theatre, 303-830-2525.

    In the 1990s, DJ Shadow (aka Josh Davis) revolutionized turntablism and distinguished himself as the illest sample-slinger in the West. His subsequent contributions to film scores and supergroup projects cemented his reputation as the dark lord of am...

    RTX - Tuesday, May 1, Larimer Lounge, 303-291-1007.

    Contorted, distorted, six-string mayhem was the hallmark of Jennifer Herrema's previous group, the influential Royal Trux. Deconstructing guitar rock and putting it back together in oddly fascinating ways, Trux played with such a devil-may-care attit...

    Uncle Earl - These g'Earls know how to get the Led out.
