Premiere

In the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art’s newest exhibit, Substrate, artists focus on shifting the perspective. While you’d usually expect for the art to be on the walls of the museum, Substrate focuses on the floors. This concept forces the viewers to interact and engage with the museum itself.

Venturing off the pavement

William Matthews retrospective only looks like a history lesson

By Elizabeth Miller

Choose to ride. He’ll take you to places far from the well-paved habitats of most mere mortal westerners and into the timeless world of American cowboys. His subjects may look like they strode out of the historic Wild West, but in reality they’re men living and breathing today, still roping steer and riding hard.

Arts

Paint

Tom Cross’ art career started in elementary school when he was asked to draw a picture of his breakfast. After getting praise from his teacher, Cross has been doing art ever since. His intention was never to display his art, but now, after a 50-year career, he’s showing a wide range of his art from over the years to the general public.

A career in keeping you scared of the dark

Author Stephen Graham Jones on the whys and hows of horror

By Elizabeth Miller

He’s talking about approaching being a writer like carpentry; some stories flow from a place in need of bloodletting, and some simply need to be hammered together. He prides himself on being able to take those assignments and build some furniture.

Music

Eminence Ensemble works hard for the music

Band does DIY tour-booking and festival creation

By Dave Kirby

We had made the mistaken assumption that our inability to get Eminence Ensemble drummer Tanner Bardin by phone last Tuesday, bouncing off a full-and-not-accepting voicemail box, was a ski-hooky thing.

Music

BCO’s ‘Romance’: An adventure with unfamiliar yet comfortable music

By Peter Alexander

“The music is very approachable,” Saless says. “I think ‘Romance’ is the perfect name I could give it. It immediately tells you it’s a friendly concert, right?” Although not a familiar name today, Arensky was once considered one of Russia’s most promising composers.

Music

Listen

With the name Candy Lee, you expect a sweet Southern woman serving you a slice of cherry pie, and indeed singer Candy Lee has that aura around her. But don’t be fooled by her angelic voice and sweet appearance, the girl’s music packs a punch. Her sound is a blend of folk and jazz with a slight twang, probably acquired from growing up in Arkansas.

Drink

Celebrate the Norse God of snow with a weekend full of beer and music at the first Ullr Grass Festival. The lineup of breweries is extensive and diverse, including Mountain Toad Brewing, Dude’s Brews and a few options for cider lovers, too, including Colorado Cider Company.

Your imaginary friend

Slow Magic says his anonymity keeps the focus on the music

By Kyle Eustice

Most musicians want to be known. Some even want photos of their faces plastered across the covers of high-profile music magazines and lining the walls of teenagers’ bedrooms. The allure of “celebrity” often fuels the desire to keep creating. Slow Magic, however, is an anomaly.

Music

Three’s a crowd, but four’s a party

New producer gives The Devil Makes Three a new sound

By Alan Sculley

forming in Santa Cruz, California in 2002, the group had steadily improved as it developed its rollicking brand of rootsy acoustic music (which draws from bluegrass, country, jazz and pop) over the course of three studio albums — a 2002 selftitled debut, Longjohns, Boots, And A Belt.

Music

Jewgrass

When looking at one music genre through the lens of another, the result becomes its own unique entity. When bluegrass meets Jewish music the result is Colorado’s own Rocky Mountain Jewgrass.

Words from the road

Luke Redfield’s love of the West fuels a life in music

By Adam Perry

Redfield, 31, grew up a preacher’s son in small, humble and peaceful Minnesota and Nebraska towns, and is quick to quote memes about the morality of work, such as “Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.

Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky. The most popular names of classical music have one thing in common: they’re all men. On Jan. 21 The Dairy Center for the Arts is paying homage to the lesser-known women in classical music.

In 2006 when the International Astronomical Union created an official definition for planet, Pluto came up short. Pluto meets two of three conditions for an object to be considered a planet; First, it is an object in orbit around the Sun. Second, it has enough mass to be a sphere by its own gravitational force.

New name. Same great theatre.

By Gary Zeidner

Boulder’s Dinner Theatre recently changed its name to BDT Stage. With the company now in its 37th season, it’s tempting to poke a little mid-life crisis fun at it over the unexpected new moniker. What’s next, a hair transplant? A gold hoop earring? A cherry-red Corvette and a 23-year-old girlfriend?.
