Some wolves do survive

Los Lobos turns 40

By Dave Kirby
The tour leg that swings Los Lobos through Boulder this weekend is something of a victory lap for the East Los Angeles-bred band. It comes just after their December release of Disconnected in New York City, a live chronicle recorded during a three-night stand at the City Winery in Manhattan last year to celebrate the band’s four decade mark.

Dogs in space

Bluetech makes serial sci-fi albums about first canine astronaut

By Dave Kirby
Bartholomew’s piece evokes a playfulness and buoyant spirit, fragmentary melody lines colliding gently against each other like friendly single-celled amoebas playing slow motion bumper cars in a turquoise Petri dish.

Trace Bundy does ESPN, but don’t call it a jingle

Boulder-area guitarist prevails in the finals of the ESPN SportsCenter Fan Jam

By Dave Kirby

Better living through grooves

The North Carolina electro-psych-tribal quintet deals a two-night stand at the Fox

By Dave Kirby
If Papadosio is forgiving about being associated with the groove scene, and this is likely where they draw a lot of their audience, they’re also a little reluctant to sign up as charter members.

Writer reflects on 20 years on the music beat

Tales from the tonal trenches

By Dave Kirby
So while I wasn’t new to the weekly music column game, the ride at the Weekly, Boulder’s upstart arts and news weekly publication, proved to be a great one. Les Claypool telling us in 2001 how he hates to be bored. McCoy Tyner reflecting in 2002 on John Coltrane’s fear of flying and Bud Powell’s sad demise. John Paul Jones recalling how much he hated touring with Led Zeppelin.

Boulder band The Wood Brothers tap into the 'The Muse' on new album

Familial cohesion at the root of The Wood Brothers' charm

By Dave Kirby
“That’s how that tune began,” Chris Wood says of his bass line on “Keep Me Around.” “That, and ‘Honey Jar’ is another example, where Jano and I were just playing together and came up with a groove, and Oliver was probably nearby tuning a guitar and he said, ‘Keep doin’ that!’ and recorded a little iPhone voice memo thing so he could remember it.

Salmon steaks, over easy

With a new drummer, Leftover Salmon hits the road and readies new album

By Dave Kirby
There was a great moment captured on a YouTube video a few weeks ago as Leftover Salmon was tearing into one of their new tunes, a grassy Andy Thorn-penned bit called “High Country,” at the Loveless Café in Nashville.
