    Krakatau - 3 Kings Tavern

    In August 1883, Krakatau, south of Java, violently erupted, producing a cataclysmic sound -- the loudest ever recorded by humans. Earlier this year, Shannon Saling, bass player and vocalist for punk-rock provocateurs the Swindlers, formed Krakatau wi...

    Blue Ice - College Night

    Blue Ice is like the well-groomed black sheep of the Baker neighborhood. Located at 22 Broadway, the nightclub borders the hipsterland territory of hi-dive/Sputnik and is just a block up from the rocker haven of 3 Kings Tavern. It's also just a hop, ...

    Dark Horse - Band of Horses' rise to prominence has been dramatic.

    The video for Band of Horses' "Funeral" features scratchy black-and-white footage of a lonely, broken old man slowly drinking himself to death in a smoky beer-and-a-shot bar, his only friends the bottom of his mug, a jukebox and memories of a dead do...

    Home Run - The Highlands House Concert Series makes its mark.

    It's been a while since I've been to a house show -- since back when there was a Democrat in the White House and emo was all about sporting a pair of thick, black-plastic specs and a cardigan and sharing your innermost thoughts with strangers on Live...

    Motet City Soundtrack - The Motet has no problem finding fans everywhere it plays.

    Motet drummer and principal composer Dave Watts might be among the most studied timekeepers on the planet. Given to using terms like "African diaspora" when describing his rhythmic influences, Watts isn't simply smacking the cans in standard time, as...

    Chriscross - MC Chris's rap career gets a boost from Adult Swim -- or is it the other way around?

    Chris Ward is multi-faceted, to say the very least. Getting his start at Cartoon Network, Ward was among the team of weirdos that resurrected an obscure Hanna-Barbera cartoon titled Sealab 2020 and turned it into the more risqu Sealab 2021. During h...

    Heaven Sent - For Shannon Larkin, Godsmack was an answered prayer.

    Boston's Godsmack has a well-earned reputation for darkness. But prior to a show in Dallas, the outfit's drummer, Shannon Larkin, sounds as cheerful as a member of Up With People. "I'm extremely grateful to be in this business, on this label, in t...

    18 Wheeler - Charmed Life (BWJ)

    Rockabilly is an especially specific genre. Despite technological advances in hair goop in the past fifty years or so, the style hasn't deviated too much from slicked-up pompadours and thumping slap-bass lines (even psychobilly counterparts remain tr...

    Beyonc - BDay (Sony Urban Music/Columbia)

    The music industry has a lot in common with the average automobile plant. Lots can go wrong, but when everything's operating at peak efficiency, it's still capable of turning out impressive products. Like, for instance, B'Day, a sleek new model that ...

    The Mars Volta - Amputechture (Universal)

    Gnawing your way through a new Mars Volta record is always something of a chore at first. The band -- anchored by instrumentalist/composer Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and lyricist/vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala -- turns out huge mind-fucks as songs, mixing p...

    Starsailor - Thursday, September 21, Bluebird Theater, 303-322-2308.

    Although these Brits have earned a footnote in pop-music annals, the reference pertains to someone else: Phil Spector. Several years back, the reclusive Wall of Sound architect was looking for a group to help him break a lengthy layoff, and he settle...

    Dead Moon - Echoes of the Past (Sub Pop)

    As more and more labels dust off long-gone, commercially failed but artistically significant bands, it's refreshing to see Sub Pop fight the sad irony of post-mortem acclaim by anthologizing a band that's alive and kicking hard with years of neglecte...

    DJ Krush - Saturday, September 23, Fox Theatre, Boulder, 303-443-3399.

    Inspired by the 1982 cult film Wild Style, DJ Krush became one of Japan's first turntablists. Equally adept at breakbeats, trip-hop, blissed-out electronic explorations and straightahead hip-hop, Krush has been a pioneering force in the DJ scene sinc...

    Towers of London - Blood Sweat & Towers (TVT)

    Towers of London would be the most original rock band to ever come out of England -- if this was 1975. Sadly for Towers, it's not. The London mates, with their ultra-party-coiffed manes, come off as third-generation wannabes so devoid of pure inspira...

    gogoLab - The Stakeout (Dance Research Records)

    At first blush, gogoLab seems like pure shtick -- an opportunity for keyboardist Eric Moon, bassist Bijoux Barbosa and drummer Brian McRae to don suits, shades and skinny ties and live out their spy-music fantasies. Turns out, though, these guys are ...

    Nada Surf - Saturday, September 23, CityLights Pavilion, 303-405-6080.

    A hit single nearly killed Nada Surf. Too arch for its own good, the 1995 MTV favorite "Popular" doomed the New York trio to novelty status. Throughout the '90s, the threesome continued to meld the rich guitar textures of shoegaze, grunge's warm fuzz...
