The first week of August will provide us with an eclectic mix of live music to hear along the Front Range. From free concerts to mountain festivals, there is something for everyone on this week’s list. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Besides this list, check-out the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages for a more extensive look at what’s happening over the next few months. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

This is a pretty sweet list of the shows and festivals happening next week, along the Front Range and beyond. I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Besides these shows, the Coming Attractions page has a more complete list of recommendations for several months to come. The Festival Time page is a fairly complete list of many of the multi-band, and often multi-day festivals in Colorado and some of the surrounding states. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

Next week is an excellent week of live music to hear across the Front Range. Besides the local fare, there are some fantastic festivals happening over the second weekend of June, including two of my personal favorites, Greeley Blues Jam and LoHi Music Festival. As per usual, I have marked my personal recommendations with an *, after the venue’s name. For a more complete list of incredible shows coming to the area over the next few months, check-out the Coming Attractions page. The Festival Time page is a pretty comprehensive compilation of all of the fests in our spectacular state and some outside of it, but probably worth the drive, nonetheless. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!!!

Recommendations: BOHEMIAN NIGHTS @ NEW WEST FEST 2015!!!!

Next weekend is Fort Collins premiere event in the downtown area. New West Fest is a long running annual celebration of this Northern Colorado community. Over the last several years, this festival has come to include Bohemian Nights, which is a showcase of many of Colorado’s finest musical acts, as well as internationally renowned headliners, happening on multiple stages, over the three day festival. Bohemian Nights have hosted acts, like Melissa Etheridge, Earth Wind & Fire, Taj Mahal, Los Lobos, Earl Scruggs, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers and Michael Franti & Spearhead, to name just a few. Some of the biggest names on the Colorado music scene have also graced Bohemian Night stages, including The Motet, The Subdudes, Elephant Revival, Emmitt-Nershi Band, Richie Furay, Devotchka, Cracker, The Samples and Big Head Todd & The Monsters, as well as so many more. This year there is one less stage than most years, due to old town construction, but it doesn’t change the fact that three days and multiple stages, can provide a lot of music to wade through. I have been able to sample almost all of the acts that are playing at this year’s Bohemian Nights @ New West Fest, and am going to offer my suggestions to help to simplify the decision making process.

FRIDAY NIGHT 8/14/15

  • Winchester Holiday (folk rock)
  • Air Dubai (hip-hop/jazz)
  • Young Ancients (Americana/folk)
  • Elephant Revival (folk-grass)

SATURDAY 8/15/15

  • Monocle Band (folk-grass)
  • The Taylor Scott Band (blues rock)
  • Branded Bandits (edgy rock)
  • Wiredogs (edgy alternative rock)
  • Grant Farm (bluegrass)
  • Megan Burtt &  The Cure For Love (soul-folk)
  • Darryl Purpose (singer/songwriter)
  • Mama Lenny & The Remedy (soul/blues)
  • Whippoorwill (blues rock)
  • Good Gravy! (jamgrass)
  • The Burroughs (soul-jazz)
  • Musketeer Gripweed (southern soul-rock)
  • Michal Menert Trio (electronic)
  • Steve Miller Band (classic blues rock)

SUNDAY 8/16/15

  • Paa Kow Band (world)
  • The Dendrites (ska)
  • Brad Goode (city jazz)
  • Rebecca Folsom (singer/songwriter)
  • Atomga (funk/afrobeat)
  • Jeff Finlin (bluesy singer/songwriter)
  • Pandas & People (groove-grass)
  • Allegaeon (metal)
  • Liz Barnez (singer/songwriter)
  • Trout Steak Revival (bluegrass)
  • In The Whale (punk blues)
  • Dubskin (reggae/dub)
  • Danielle Ate The Sandwich (old timey singer/songwriter)
  • Rodrigo y Gabriela (world flamenco)

This is not the only good music to check-out, but by our standards, it is the best playing at this year’s Bohemian Nights at New West Fest. Besides all of this music, there is also a Kid’s Music Adventure Stage for the younger audiences, and late night shows around town for the adult attendees. We will be posting daily reviews, each day during the festival, so check back next Saturday, Sunday and Monday, to see if you had the same experiences that we do. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
