    The ten best shows in Denver this weekend

    "WEIRD" AL YANKOVIC @ BOULDER THEATER | SUN, 7/21/13 "Weird Al" Yankovic's zany parodies catapulted him to fame in the '80s, back when pop culture was in dire need of some deflation. He never got critical props for his oddball iconoclasm, though, and after his 1989 film, UHF tanked at the box office ... More >>

    The misappropriation of country music

    Country music used to have its own distinct identity, one that was tied to rich traditions of lonesome country roads, hard work, low pay and drinking. These days it's a black hole of insipidity. Following the Grammys, the Lumineers and Mumford & Sons are now reportedly making inroads on country radi ... More >>

    Grammy tape delay versus realtime Twitter reaction: What's with the East Coast bias?

    So, yeah, I'm watching the Grammys right now and dutifully monitoring the #GRAMMYs hash tag on Twitter (thanks for the helpful reminders, LL). Color me confused. I feel like I just walked into the middle of a movie: On the set, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley are in the middle of a duet. The Twi ... More >>

    New Denver shows: Zac Brown adds third show at Red Rocks, plus Sting, the XX and more

    Okay, hands up if you knew the Zac Brown Band was so popular. He's wildly popular, in case you're wondering.

    The twenty best concert quotes of 2012

    We go to concerts for the music, but the best moments are often unrehearsed. For some bands, a show is just a series of songs -- the moments between, nothing but time to be killed until the music begins again. But we don't go to concerts to kill time-- and, truly, we don't go to hear songs, either, ... More >>

    American Idol Top 9: Stevie Nicks helped make this season a competition again

    Kudos to Stevie Nicks, this week's guest mentor on American Idol.

    Review: Miranda Lambert at 1STBANK Center, 3/17/12

    MIRANDA LAMBERT @ 1STBANK CENTER | 3/17/12 Miranda Lambert is justifiably incredulous. Twenty songs into her 22-song set, just before the St. Patrick's Day edition of her She-Woman Men Haters Club is about to conclude, someone on her crew has taken it upon himself to preempt the proceedings by turn ...

    Weekend's best live bets: Joy Formidable, Girls, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson and more

    With pretty much the entire music world holed up in Austin this weekend for this year's edition of SXSW, it's amazing that there's any musical options to choose from this weekend at all, much less decent ones. Alas, though, there are still plenty of compelling reasons to leave the house. Girls get t ... More >>

    Rihanna "Birthday Cake (Remix)" with Chris Brown: More like distubia

    ​Okay, after hearing the full version of Rihanna's "Birthday Cake (Remix)" featuring Chris Brown, we're in utter shock.
