As we approach the season of Spring Break, it appears that there are fewer exceptional shows to choose from. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any amazing acts coming to the Front Range, next week, just that there are fewer than I would prefer. I have marked the shows I recommend, with an * , after the venue’s name. For an extensive list of the best shows in the area over the next several months, check-out the Coming Attractions page. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

BILLY & THE KIDS PLAYING 1990 GRATEFUL DEAD IN DENVER ON 4/20!!

A couple of months ago, I wrote a post about an upcoming Billy & The Kids show in Denver. Well, that show is on Monday, 4/20. Grateful Dead drummer, Bill Kreutzmann started this project less than a year ago and their first show was at Warren Haynes’ “X-Mas Jam” in December. The next show they announced was the 4/20 show at the Ogden Theatre in Denver. The band has played a handful of shows since then and are scheduled for some more over the summer.

Billy & The Kids consists of Bill Kreutzmann, Aron Magner (The Disco Biscuits), Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead + American Babies) and Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green + 7 Walkers). When the Denver show was first announced, there wasn’t a theme, but since that time more information has been released. Bill wanted to recapture a little of the sound that the Grateful Dead had going on 25 years ago, in 1990. To do this he enlisted the saxophone wizardry of Dominic Lalli (Big Gigantic), which helps to bring the feel of the shows when Branford Marsalis sat in with the Grateful Dead. Kreutzmann also felt the desire to make something similar in sound on the percussive side of things. The best way to make the drums sound like two people are playing, is to have two people play. For that job, he has put Jason Hann (The String Cheese Incident) in his co-pilot seat.

Bill and, fellow Grateful Dead drummer, Mickey Hart sat in with the Disco Biscuits, last night at Red Rocks. They came out for the second of three sets, that was dedicated entirely to the music of the Grateful Dead. Tom Hamilton also joined the band on guitar for this portion of the cold and snowy night at the beloved venue. This was just another example of the tributes that are being done in honor of The Good Ol’ Grateful Dead and the 50th anniversary of when this jam scene of ours truly began.

Monday night at the Ogden, with Billy & The Kids will be another way to celebrate the timeless music of the Grateful Dead. After all, it is 4/20, and with such a storied history between Deadheads and the marijuana culture, it is an added reason to get festive in a place where you can. The show will probably sell-out, but currently there are still tickets available, so pick yours up now. In case you aren’t sold on Billy & The Kids, check-out this clip of them performing Phish’s “Chalkdust Torture” here. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
