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!!!! 😉

UMPHREY’S MCGEE Returns To COLORADO, SUMMER 2014!!

As many of you may have heard over the last couple days, Umphrey’s McGee is coming back to Colorado 6 months after their new years run to celebrate UMerica. They will play at the Boulder Theatre on 7/04 and at Red Rocks on 7/05. The Red Rocks show will see opening sets by The Motet and Moon Taxi.

If you aren’t familiar with Umphrey’s McGee, let me take a few lines to tell you about them. I think I started seeing them in 2004 at The Starlight, which is now Hodi’s Halfnote, in Fort Collins. Since, I have caught them at The Aggie, The Fox, The Fillmore and Red Rocks. I have yet to catch a bad or even mediocre show for them. They are the poster children for what jamband music truly is. They have jamtronic moments as well as full-on rock forays and anything inbetween. Their choice of cover songs has always been appealing, from Fugazi to Lionel Richie to AC/DC. If you like long improvisational blow-outs with a killer party vibe, then the UMerica celebration maybe just the way you should celebrate your freedom. The tickets for these shows go on sale as early as tomorrow morning.

Pre-sale VIP and passes for both nights, go on sale through Umphrey’s ticketing tomorrow at 10 a.m. MT

Pre-sale through Live Nation is for Red Rocks only tix and starts @ 10 a.m. on 2/27

General on-sale for the Red Rocks show is 2/28 at 10 a.m. MT through Live Nation.

That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know !!
