ALABAMA SHAKES @ OGDEN THEATER | 3/9/13 There were too many musical threads to count during Alabama Shakes' dynamic and dizzying performance at the Ogden Theatre.

TRAMPLED BY TURTLES @ OGDEN THEATRE | 1/10/13 Eerie sounds were coming out of the fiddle, the base of which Ryan Young had lodged into his chest.

The Lumineers are virtually inescapable these days, both in the world of music, obviously, but also in the realm of pop culture: From being in constant radio rotation across the nation to being name dropped as a part of incidental plot lines on TV shows like Nashville, the Denver-based, Grammy nomin ...

Maybe it's just because we're claustrophobic and get all sorts of anxious being pressed in by tight crowds, but the thought of being trampled seems more than a little unnerving, which is precisely why we always avoid Black Friday. But being trampled by turtles, on the other hand, well, now that just ... More >>
Colorado is one of the top two markets for Tuaca, and judging from the local launch of Tuaca Cinnastar at the Dive Inn last night, this cinnamon-laced extension of the brand is going to be hot in more ways than one.

How important in stage presence in terms of how much impact a show has on you? Depends who you ask. While our reviewer was struck by the energetic set turned in by the Dillinger Escape Plan at the Ogden and less moved by Mastodon, Ian, who posted our comment of the day, thought Dillinger put ...

Eric GruneisenGame at the Ogden last nightGAME at THE OGDEN THEATRE | 11/3/11Last night at the Ogden, Game had so many fans draped in red on stage with him, it began to look more like the red sea, rather than a band of hip-hop hooligans representing for their favorite MC.

Trentemøller on Friday at the Ogden.TRENTEMØLLER at the OGDEN THEATRE | 10/21/11Though certainly not the dark horse by any electronic music connoisseur's standards, Trentemøller's performance Friday night at the Ogden Theatre was one for the books. Ribbon banners, flash-poppi ... More >>
A house is just not a Home without musicWhether you're a local scene junkie or strangely attracted to artists without vowels, there's no shortage of things to do over the next two days.

Yeasayer (due tonight with Hush, Hush and Smith Westerns at the Ogden Theatre) was started by three guys from Baltimore, who each moved to New York separately before starting the band.

Back in the day, the Bad Brains famously announced that they "Pay to Cum" -- but who paid to come and see them during a rare live appearance at Summit Music Hall. The answers are in a new slideshow -- and there's more memorable imagery on view, too. Check out the galleries of the Deftones at ... More >>
Saturday night at Bender's Tavern was dead in one way but very lively in others thanks to the third annual March of the Zombies.

There's no question that Wiz Khalifa has a loyal following. That much was evident when his Taylor Gang invaded the Ogden last fall. What we didn't know was that his reach stretches all the way to the playground. Witness Houston's Young Lyric (aka Lyrikkal) -- emphasis on young; shorty is nine-year ... More >>
Who is this beautiful woman, and why is she trapped in a giant orb?

Planning to catch Devendra Banhart tomorrow night at the Ogden?

Two shows, including Den ... More >>
Another Monday. Ugh. Not sure if reliving the weekend will make it better or worse, but we don't have much of a choice, do we? So, without further ado, some shit that happened between last Friday and now: • Kate Levy threw down at the Wrangler's Sunday Beer Bust. • Kiernan Maletsky shoo ... More >>

So one more day before Flobots invade the Ogden to celebrate the release of Survival Story, their sophomore release and the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2008's Fight with Tools.

With the Rockies clinching its playoff birth yesterday and this being Rocktober and all, it seems only fitting to post the "Rockies Anthem," penned by 3OH!3 for the boys of summer and captured live at the Ogden, to get everybody all fired up.

I was shuttling between the hi-dive and the Larimer Lounge on Friday night, so unfortunately, I didn't catch Reno Divorce and Slim Cessna heating things up for Reverend Horton Heat at the Ogden. But from the sounds of it -- Jon Solomon was at the show -- both acts tore it up, and although it took th ... More >>
Oh, hell yes. It appears that Snarf's, a veritable sandwich institution in Boulder, is opening a location at 11th and Ogden in Capitol Hill.

The Wu-Tang Clan plays the Ogden tonight. You should go -- but you should also know that Wu fans are pretty rabid, and would like to know that you are as rabid as they are. So, here, a handy guide to making yourself look like you deserve entrance into the 36 chambers. Good luck. -- Joe Tone
Leave the Gun. Take the cannoli. All eyes -- or ears, rather -- in the music world, including ours, were on Chinese Democracy this week.
