Trent Reznor knows it all

NIN's performance at Red Rocks shows how to evolve from garage band to arena rocker

By Josh Gross
It looked like he was going to laptop jockey the show, filling the stage only with the size of his legacy, the closest NIN could get to playing an “unplugged” show. But Reznor had something grander in store.

Boiling point

By Josh Gross
Just one thing I want to know: how come I have to be Mr. Pink?” my co-worker Caitlin Rockett asked on our way to The Huckleberry in old town Louisville. But we weren’t headed there to pull a Reservoir Dogs; we were going to have a tea party.

Snap judgment

Casa Alvarez is more than the sum of its generic decor

By Josh Gross
At first glance, Casa Alvarez might as well be decorated exclusively in red flags.

Voices of a generation

The Revellie 3 sing history

By Josh Gross
That was why she volunteered to take part in a two-week-long event organized by the Rocky Mountain USO: Knitting for Our Troops. Originally, Ward had just planned to wield a pair of needles.

META ON META

‘I Hate Hamlet’ is an inside joke, inside a reference, wrapped in an annotation

By Josh Gross
There’s an unnamed but pervasive phenomenon widely known by literary agents, publishers and film and theater festival submissions agents that is best summarized as “early novel syndrome,” in which someone with a clear and focused talent for writing/acting/filmmaking turns their sights on the only story they yet know: the struggle to create whatever it is they’re trying to create.

Bite-sized

The Bitter Bar ditches its menu for finger food

By Josh Gross
Though downtown Boulder has its share of classy joints, when discerning Boulderites are looking for somewhere to wear their dress North Face jacket, or that little black dress that perfectly matches their nice Chacos, they head downtown to The Bitter Bar — this year’s Best of Boulder winner for “Best Bar” — and soak up the swank.

Sun Rose Cafe does things Texas-sized

By Josh Gross
Though the ambiance was one of light disorientation caused by ambient sound, The Sun Rose Cafe delivered on the food end, making the experience a pleasant one on the whole.
