This is the list of the best of the live music to hear along the Front Range, next week. With Red Rocks hosting Primus, Gramatik and the Moody Blues and bands like The Orb and New Mastersounds in the area, many ears should be happy. Besides these, there are a lot of other great acts, both local and national, playing around. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. For more music happening in the coming months, check-out the Festival Time and Coming Attractions pages. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

Review: 2ND NIGHT FOCOMX 7!!

Though I am a little behind in writing this post and despite some trepidation over the crowds, I did go out for the second night of FoCoMX and caught a few acts in a couple of hours. I even dug two of the bands I saw that night.

I started the night around 9:15 at Compass Cider, which I have been curious about but had never been inside of. Nice place and a good vibe, but for the softer side of percussion delivered by More Than Physics, it perpetuated a fair amount of noise to drown out the beautiful music. I did hear a little bit and was truly soothed by and impressed with their earthy sound.

After other stops, I ended up at Hodi’s Half Note to see Wire Faces, which was not a band I had ever heard. The place was pretty full and remained that way during the trio’s set. With a lead singer on drums standing up and smack dab between the guitarist and bassist, from the first notes it was going to be something worth a listen. By the sound of their first song, they leaned toward bands like Jet and The Strokes. As their set continued, they started to incorporate something that was quite similar to the 80’s alternative punk of Fugazi. The band had great energy and the drummer really commanded the crowd.

After Wire Faces finished, I decided to call it a night and headed home. In general, i was a little disappointed that I didn’t see more of the awesome music there was to catch, but I did get to hear some live music that I hadn’t and would make an effort to see again. Hope everyone had fun at FoCoMX 7!! That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!!
