    The Arcade Fire Burns On - Fresh off its European festival tour, these Canadians ignite the States.

    After a summer full of hour-long sets at European festivals, the Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry was tired when he answered the phone. Nonetheless, he offered insight into the band's performances, which are magical events to be savored like lost tee...

    Kanye West - Graduation Island Def Jam/Roc-A-Fella

    Kanye is the most exciting man in rap because he puts out quality, popular albums. Forget the artless 50 Cent and Akon -- Kanye tries harder, and Graduation, which has thirteen bangers and zero skits, reflects the man's tireless work ethic. Having un...

    50 Cent - Curtis Shady/Aftermath/Interscope

    Earlier this year, 50 Cent made millions from an investment in Glaceau Vitamin Water -- so much loot, in fact, that he's bragged about how he "doesn't even have to rap." That's clearly the case on Curtis: 50 is no longer hungry, and it shows. Thi...

    New Ancient Astronauts - Astronautilus Self-released

    The opening salvo of Astronautilus, New Ancient Astronauts' second long-player, is the bombastic and campy "Catasteroid." Who else but maybe Blue yster Cult could take the idea of a gigantic asteroid about to hit the earth and end all life on the pl...

    The Skivies - Between Appliance and Apparel Self-released

    Their moniker may sound jokey, but the Skivies -- who'll join New Ancient Astronauts and Amphibious Jones on Saturday, September 15, at Cricket on the Hill, for a three-way Denver Art Rock Collective CD-release party -- are more than a novelty. The h...

    Listen Up - Fast reviews of recent releases

    Black Francis, Blue Finger (Cooking Vinyl). What's in a name? Attitude. Under the Black Francis moniker, Frank Black returns with a gritty performance reminiscent of his earliest Pixies days. Angular guitars thrash against embattled basses, angry dru...

    Kelly Joe Phelps - Friday, September 14, Swallow Hill Music Association, 303-777-1003.

    Portland troubadour Kelly Joe Phelps began as just another kid locked in his bedroom hacking out Led Zeppelin riffs. He eventually broke free of the confines of hard rock to study classical guitar, delve into the free-jazz movement and discover a pas...

    St. Vincent - Tuesday, September 18, Ogden Theatre, 1-866-468-7624.

    The adventurousness of Kate Bush's quirky and consistently innovative music didn't just inspire Tori Amos's intense, introspective songwriting. Clearly, Annie Clark, performing under the name St. Vincent, has learned a thing or two from Bush's unique...

    The Used - Wednesday, September 19, Fillmore Auditorium, 303-830-8497.

    In the video for "Pretty Handsome Awkward," an entertaining track from Lies for the Liars, the latest CD by the Used, bassist Jeph Howard dons drag -- and he believes he pulls off the look pretty well. As he points out, "I think I could fit in on San...

    The Vibrators - Wednesday, September 19, 3 Kings Tavern, 303-777-7370.

    Like their contemporaries in U.K. Subs, who lived in the same building, the seasoned pub musicians who formed the Vibrators in 1976 brought a blues tradition to the infantile punk scene. But while the scene was highly politicized and angry, the Vibes...

    Austin-based singer-songwriter Chris Simpson, who was raised in Littleton, first came to the fore as a member of Mineral, a band whose two full-lengths, 1995's The Power of Falling and 1998's End Serenading, would undoubtedly hit the sweet spot of ma...

    So I head over to the Iliff Park Saloon (2300 South Chambers Road, Aurora) with the idea of having a nice, quiet happy-hour beer and maybe getting a tattoo at Ill-Mannered Tattoos, the bar's ink parlor that opened last month. But the next thing I kno...

    Abracastabya - The Black Sheep

    Those old enough to remember Pee-wee's Big Adventure surely recall being haunted by Danny Elfman's spooky soundtrack, the demented carnival music heard throughout the movie. A similar eccentric and darkly compelling sensibility informs the moods and ...
