The band calls it "trailer-park jazz," while a reviewer once referred to it as "cinematic Americana." Either way, the experimental music of County Road X is finding an audience, one that's grown steadily with each performance. Influences as diverse as Afro pop, chamber jazz and Radiohead, among others, swirl together for an eclectic assemblage of sounds. Some faces in the crowd may be familiar -- the band enlists alumni from the Denver Gentlemen, Slim Cessna's Auto Club and Sherefe -- but don't expect them to rest on their reputations. Rather, County Road X impresses with its innovation. Appearing at Boulder's Trilogy Lounge on Friday, May 16, with equally avant-garde colleagues Hamster Theatre, the Road knows that the musical journey is the destination.
