As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Besides these shows, there is a longer list of shows coming over the next several months on the Coming Attractions page. There is also a fairly comprehensive list of festivals, near and far, on the Festival Time page. That’s What I Know, So That’s What I Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

FOCOMX 8 WILL BE HAPPENING NEXT WEEKEND IN DOWNTOWN FORT COLLINS!!!!

Next weekend is the eighth annual two-day festival in the downtown area of Fort Collins, known as FOCOMX, the Fort Collins Music Experiment. On April 22nd and 23rd most bars, several restaurants, a movie theatre and a museum in the downtown portion of Fort Collins, will become venues for over two hundred musical acts from along the Front Range. Just about every genre and sub-genre is covered at the twenty-plus host businesses, over the two days. Besides bands, singer/songwriters and DJ’s the event is also presenting some local comedians, to better represent local talent of all varieties. On Friday the festivities start as early as 3:30 p.m. and go until closing time at most of the venues. The fun begins at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday and goes until close at most sites. Since, it is impossible to see all of the acts at FOCOMX 8, I have listened to most of these artists, at least the ones I could find on-line clips for and have compiled a list of the artists that seem to be the most solid musically and have found a unique ways to express that talent.

FRIDAY NIGHT

This is certainly not all of the bands playing as part of FOCOMX 8, but these are the acts that I could find recorded material for on-line, and that seriously caught my attention. A big THANKS to ReverbNation for being a platform for so many local bands to present audio and video footage on-line, it truly was a big help in making this list. The weather is supposed to be pretty nice this weekend, so walking or biking from venue to venue is definitely in the cards. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

17TH ANNUAL NED FEST HOSTS MARCH FOURTH!, CRACKER & More…

We are barely a week out from the 17th Annual Nederland Music & Arts Festival, lovingly referred to as Ned Fest. The very first Ned Fest happened in the late 90’s in someone’s yard and has evolved from there, hosting up to 2000 festivarians each day of the three day fest at the Jeff Guercio Memorial Baseball Field.  Having hosted acts as big and eclectic as Los Lobos, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Dr. John, David Grisman and Robert Randolph & The Family Band, to name but a few, this intimate mountain festival is no slouch. The festival has also featured performances from acts that have grown exponentially since their time on the Ned Fest stage, such as Yonder Mountain String Band, The Motet, Elephant Revival and Keller Williams. Most years, attendee’s have enjoyed various off-shoot acts from local favorites, Leftover Salmon, Yonder Mountain String Band and The String Cheese Incident. Ned Fest has recently become a non-profit, with proceeds going to music education programs in the area.

This year’s Ned Fest, will feature four headliners that have never played at the festival before. Friday evening’s festivities begin with local jamgrass quartet, Gipsy Moon, who have quickly been making a name for themselves on the summer festival circuit. The first night’s music closes with the post-apocalyptic high school marching band sounds of MarchFourth!. I have seen this incredible conglomerate of horns, percussion, stilt-walkers, and uncontainable energy a couple of times, and it is a spectacle not to be missed.

Day Two will start with the roadside bar sounds of the Funky Tonk Heroes. The groove-grass stylings of Acoustics Anonymous lay track between bluegrass and electric jam, with the drums pounding the spikes all along the way. The Gasoline Lollipops take the festival through the late afternoon with their alt-country songs about hard-luck, love, death and liquor, which are often inter-connected themes. The early evening introduces the fest to its double-headliner, starting with the inconspicuous super-group of the Hard Working Americans. This band is made-up of singer/songwriter, Todd Snider, Widespread Panic bassist, Dave Schools, Chris Robinson Brotherhood guitarist, Neal Casal, keyboardist for Great American Taxi, Chad Staehly, Butch’s son and current Widespread Panic drummer, Duane Trucks, and singer/songwriter, Jesse Aycock, who plays guitar and lapsteel with this band. This sextet will bring their deeply rooted American sound to our deeply rooted American festival. Not to be outdone, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood will finish out Saturday’s performances, with the former Black Crowes frontman, heading the band that includes Hard Working Americans’ guitarist Neal Casal, who will be doing double duty that day. If you haven’t heard CRB, we must highly suggest checking-out their roots-rock sound that is steeped in 70’s era folk n’ groove music. Most of the band has spent time as members of Phil Lesh & Friends, which may be why some of their songs sound like they could have been on The Grateful Dead’s albums ‘Wake Of The Flood’ or ‘Go To Heaven’. Saturday is sure to be a high-class musical experience.

Sunday begins with a testament to the proceeds at work, featuring Colorado Bluegrass Music Society’s Young Pickers. This collection of local kids, provides an impressive exhibition for the Ned Fest crowd. Traditional  bluegrass quartet, Caribou Mountain Collective have graced the Ned Fest stage in the past and are back again for a mid-afternoon set. There is a bit of a homecoming feel to Vince Herman’s set, considering he lived in the area for quite a while, before moving to the Northwest in the last few year’s. Billed as Vince Herman & Friends, the possibilities are endless for the Leftover Salmon co-founder, as to who might join him on the Ned Fest stage. The Sunday headliner is the pre-apocalyptic alternative act, Cracker, who have been together about a quarter of a decade. Fronted by David Lowry and Johnny Hickman, the band had some alternative hits with songs like “Get Off This”, “Teen Angst (What The World Needs Now)” and “Low”. In 2003, Cracker released an album with the instrumental help of Leftover Salmon titled “Oh Cracker Where Art Thou?”, where they moved through some of Cracker’s biggest tunes. There is certainly some hope, but no evidence that there will be a re-visitation of the twelve year old album. It is sure to be an amazing weekend of music.

The Ned Fest line-up is a pretty good-looking list from beginning to end, this year. Besides all of the music we have shared with you, there are also tweener sets between each act, so the music is fairly seemless. There are also late night shows in town, so the music barely has to stop. We can’t recommend any festivals any more highly, than the 17th Annual Ned Festival. We have been attending for most of the last eight of the last ten years and always look forward to coming back to this family-friendly fest. There are still tickets and camping available, so what are you waiting for? We have added links to some of this year’s acts below. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!
