The 8 best jam-band shows in Denver this March

American Babies at the 1Up Colfax 3/4/14 In 2007, Philly-based Brothers Past frontman Tom Hamilton went back to his roots and started American Babies, a band that focuses on songcraft and takes influences from everyone from Lou Reed to the Grateful Dead. The Babies' live shows are high-energy, with surprise covers that have included the entire second half of Abbey Road, and you'll often see the musicians rotating to different instruments, sometimes even bringing talented friends on the stage with them for a spell. There is no entrance fee, so definitely go down and check out the 1Up when American Babies are playing: It's clean, spacious, good sound and it's fast becoming a local favorite.
