Hearsay bits: Van Morrison, Yonder Mountain String Band, Tyler Despres Band, Pictureplane
Got plans on Saturday, September 26? Um, we do. We'll be at the Wells Fargo Theatre. Just caught wind that the one and only Van Morrison will be making his way to the Mile High City on that date, and the only way we'll miss that show is if ... well, actually, there's no way we're missing that show. Wondering if he'll play songs from Astral Weeks -- only the greatest album of all time next to What's Going On -- in its entirety like he did last year in Los Angeles. Doubtful, but, hey, a kid can dream, right? According to one very reliable Sage, tickets go on sale next Friday, August 21.
In the meantime, here's some good news if you're planning on heading up to Red Rocks to see local homeboys Yonder Mountain String Band on Saturday, August 29 with Xavier Rudd. The Basics Fund, a dynamite organization that raises funds to help pay for health insurance for artists, is organizing a fleet of buses to shuttle folks to the show from Boulder, Denver and Fort Collins (what is Colorado Springs, chopped liver?). A guaranteed DD for a mere $20 donation? Done! Reserve your seat now by calling 720-204-0408. See you over Yonder.
Miss your chance to see Pictureplane last week at the Meadowlark? You're in luck. Tomorrow night at Denver Creative Co-Op Studio at 425 Lincoln, you can catch Travis Egedy with BDRMPPL, Iuengliss, Married In Berdichev and Itchy-O. Come see the dude that's got Pitchfork and Stereogum all hot and bothered. Oh and finally, this just in: The Tyler Despres Band will heretofore be known as Science Partner. Good call.
