Details, details

For Boulder-native siblings Caleb and Kato Kronen, life’s too short to listen to lousy music in lame clothing

By Dave Kirby
Caleb Kronen may be a bit more prone to second-guessing the final mix than most guitarists. A hearing science major at the University of Colorado, he is leading an honors thesis research project this summer at the CU Hearing Research Laboratory and freely admits that thinking about sound, how it gets created and captured, how people hear it, is a vital component to the band’s craft.

By Dave Kirby
When Victor Wooten, arguably the greatest electric bass player of his generation, rolls into town this week, he will uncharacteristically be playing without any of his brothers — his band instead will consist of some longtime friends and players, several of whom appear on his twin releases Sword and Stone.

The Ringers are very highly strung

Wayne Krantz dishes on the perils of ‘the supergroup’

By Dave Kirby
Anyone familiar with Wayne Krantz’s threedecade career (Berklee College of Music grad, sideman to the likes of Donald Fagan and Randy Brecker, a taciturn and artistically feral solo jazz/fusion/avant artist) might therefore find it surprising that the guitarist would be paired up with two other guitarists, Jimmy Herring and Michael Landau, in something that looks an awful lot like … one of those things.

Postcards from fault line

How West Water Outlaws spent their spring break

By Dave Kirby
While WWO has earned its road cred grinding out mini-tours of southeastern clubs — Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina — and becoming practically familiar faces in Austin, where the band has some family connections, the West Coast was an entirely new market for them. We wondered if Rooker had to spend much time disabusing their newfound Cali fans of the notion that Colorado produced little beyond bluegrass and club music.

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.

The ’dudes are back in town

The subdudes patch it up and bring the original lineup back to the Boulder Theater

By Dave Kirby
A year and a half ago, we had a chance to chat with John Magnie and Steve Amedee to get a little background on their work with singer/songwriter Rebecca Folsom, who was just getting ready to release her new album Reunion.

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
“[ESPN] emailed me a while back, said hey, we really like your music, we want you to be part of this ‘competition.’ They said they were going to contact eight different musicians, and have all of us provide our own unique arrangement of the SportsCenter theme song.”

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.
