Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Aspen Hourglass is an alternative rock band combining grand piano, slap/tap guitar techniques, bass synth, trapset, and vocal harmonies consisting of Grayson Erhard, Elvin Holderfield, and Sean Hanson. Aspen Hourglass started in February of 2012 inside of a garage playing music for fun where several instrumentation arrangements were tested. Eventually, a three-piece sound was chosen: vocals, guitar, keyboard/synthesizer, and drums. The imagery and concept behind the name “Aspen Hourglass” illustrates change in time, color, transition, impermanence and the geography of our home-Colorado. The band’s main intent is to grow the community and the group as organically as possible through live performances, benefits, and opportunities to fellow artists. The band was chosen by PopVulture Magazine in March 2013 to become a Headline Artist in their physical and online magazine. They have also been featured on the cover of Colorado Music Buzz’s October 2013 issue and selected as an “Artist to Watch” in 2014, chosen as the “Artist of the Month” by Callywood Radio in December 2013, had multiple feature’s in Colorado State University’s Collegian, an article in SwitchOn!’s global physical and online magazine, a full-page written in the February 2014 edition of Scene Magazine, and a full-page article in Fort Collins Magazine.

Tickets on sale 1/30 at 10AM! RUNA An evening of Irish music, song & dance

Genre: Celtic/World
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

A lot of good things have happened to RUNA since they first performed in Colorado about 5 years ago. At the time they probably were relatively unknown west of the Mississippi, but now they are recognized on an international level, even making the cover of Irish Music Magazine (Dublin). RUNA won Top Group (US, IRE, EU, UK) and Top Traditional Group, and a nomination for Best Female Vocalist (2013, 2012) in the Irish Music Awards for 2013, and won both the fan ballot and judges’ votes for Best Song in the World Traditional Category for “Amhrán Mhuighinse” (Somewhere Along the Road) in the 12th Annual Independent Music Awards.  The band won several awards at the 2010 Montgomery Buck Music Awards, including Best Entertaining Band, Best Folk Artist, Best Female Vocalist, and Best Album – “Jealousy”. RUNA just released their fourth album, "Current Affairs" – hailed by The Celtic Crier as “an incredible masterpiece" and by Hearth Music as "Music inspired by tradition, but unafraid of a bright new future!". The album is nominated for Best Irish CD of 2014! No doubt the addition of Dave Curley and Maggie Estes would be a plus for any band. Curley was in Denver a couple of years ago performing with SLIDE. The Galway native impressed all with sensational multi-instrumentalist (playing guitar, banjo, mandolin, and bodhrán, among other instruments), as well as a singer, and dancer with his velvet vocals and quick feet. Maggie, a champion fiddle and mandolin player from Hopkinsville, KY., is emerging as one of the most talented young fiddle players in her new home – Nashville, TN. With bluegrass and classical training, Maggie brings a truly unique flavour to the RUNA sound. She has toured extensively with the Peter Mayer Group and with Keith & Kristyn Getty. Dublin born Fionán de Barra (brother Éamonn also played with Curley in SLIDE) is still providing monster guitar work for the band, along with Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, and of lead vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan.

Johnette Napolitano (of Concrete Blonde) with Flamenco Underground

Genre: Rock/Acoustic
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

ALL SEATS ARE SOLD OUT, A LIMITED AMOUNT OF STANDING ROOM TICKETS WILL BE RELEASED MONDAY, MARCH 2 AT 10AM

Best known for her work as lead singer and bassist in the '80s and early-'90s alternative rock trio Concrete Blonde, Johnette Napolitano is also a poet, social activist, soundtrack composer, and sculptor. Born in Hollywood on September 22, 1957, Napolitano lurked on the fringes of the Los Angeles punk and new wave scene, working at the legendary Gold Star Studios until she formed the duo Dream 6 with guitarist Jim Mankey. The pair recorded a self-titled 1982 EP produced by Jim's brother Earle Mankey (like Jim, a former member of the first lineup of Sparks, and at the time one of the hottest producers on the L.A. new wave scene), which attracted the attention of IRS Records boss Miles Copeland. With a new drummer in Chicago transplant Harry Rushakoff and a new name supposedly bestowed by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe that was supposed to connote the band's mix of hard and soft elements, Concrete Blonde released their self-titled debut in 1987. This was quickly followed by Free, Bloodletting (featuring the group's biggest hit, "Joey"), Walking in London, and Mexican Moon, before Concrete Blonde split in 1995. Napolitano then moved on to two short-lived projects, Vowel Movement (a collaboration with Holly Beth Vincent of Holly & the Italians) and Pretty & Twisted (with the late Marc Moreland, formerly of Wall of Voodoo), as well as occasional Concrete Blonde reunion albums. Following this, Napolitano began a second career as soundtrack composer for small and medium-budget indie films such as Wicker Park and Underworld. She also released a pair of largely improvised and mostly electronic albums, Sketchbook and Sketchbook 2, in 2002 and 2006. Johnette Napolitano's first proper solo album, Scarred, followed in the spring of 2007. ~ Stewart Mason

Young Dubliners with Brent Loveday and The Dirty Dollars

Genre: Celtic Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

The hard-rocking Irish band, the Young Dubliners owe everything to their fans. "They keep us honest, expecting good music both on the road and on the albums," mentions frontman Keith Roberts. Building a fervent fan base comparable to that of jam band rockers like Phish and Dave Matthews Band, The Young Dubliners have become notorious for the whirling "jig pits" that erupt at their live shows. In fact, the group's origins can be traced back to Los Angeles' vibrant pub scene in which Dublin natives Keith Roberts (vocals, guitar) and Paul O'Toole first met. The Young Dubliners grew into a pugnacious music machine resulting in their debut, the Rocky Road EP (1994). It exhibited a hefty rock sound that made them a club favorite. Breathe followed a year later with the addition of Chas Waltz (violin, keys, harmonica, etc). By 2000, the band had morphed into a septet without O'Toole and released the critically acclaimed Red. The presence of the band sky-rocketed: Gabriel Byrne requested the band to write the theme song for his television show Madigan Men and they spent much of 2001 touring Europe with Jethro Tull, and the US as headliners and as openers for acts such as John Hiatt and Robert Cray. The Young Dubliners also revved up the crowd at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. From Irish-flavored anthemic rock to rowdy pub tunes, lead singer Keith Roberts voice is stronger than ever and the songwriting, performance, and production show a new maturity and artistic ambition. Roberts notes, "Since Absolutely, we've become a much tighter band. It's the first time we've had the same members for two albums in a row, plus we've had the benefit of relentless touring. I think those two factors have really come together to make us sound and write better."

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Join Dave Alvin and friends at the Denver stop of his West of The West Train Tour.

Dave Alvin, Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter and self-described "barroom guitarist," is widely considered to be one of the pivotal founders of the current Americana music scene. A fourth generation Californian, Dave Alvin grew up in Downey, California as the local landscape quickly evolved from orange groves and dairy farms to tract homes and freeways. Since forming the highly influential roots rock/R+B band The Blasters, with his brother Phil in 1979, and throughout his long and critically acclaimed solo career, Dave Alvin has mixed his varied musical and literary influences into his own unique, updated version of traditional American music. Combining elements of blues, folk, R+B, rockabilly, Bakersfield country and garage rock and roll with lyrical inspiration from local writers and poets like Raymond Chandler, Gerald Locklin and Charles Bukowski, Alvin says that his songs are "just like California. A big, messy melting pot." Dave Alvin's 30 years of recordings and live performances move through the loud, aggressive rock and roll of The Blasters to the contemplative acoustic storytelling of his solo albums, (KING OF CALIFORNIA, BLACKJACK DAVID, DAVE ALVIN & THE GUILTY WOMEN) and from the traditional folk of his Grammy winning CD, PUBLIC DOMAIN to the electric blues of his ASHGROVE CD. Alvin has always managed to unite seemingly disparate genres into a cohesive vision of contemporary roots music. You can expect no less from his latest album, ELEVEN ELEVEN, released on Yep Roc Jun 21st 2011. Dave Alvin's songs have been recorded by a who's who of contemporary roots artists from Los Lobos, Little Milton, Robert Earl Keen, Marshal Crenshaw and Joe Ely to Dwight Yoakam, James McMurtry, Buckwheat Zydeco, Alejandro Escovedo and X. His songs have also been featured in many movies and television shows including Justified, The Sopranos, True Blood, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Crybaby, Miss Congeniality and From Dusk To Dawn.

Chris Trapper's music can best be described as lyrically driven roots–pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra–ordinary characters. A respected songwriter of the highest caliber, Chris has written 7 songs with/for Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA, including their #1 single "Sea Of No Cares" from the certified–platinum Sea Of No Cares CD. Great Big Sea covered Trapper's song "Everything Shines" and their version served as the debut single off their certified–gold Road Rage CD album. Chris' songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper's songs. Chris Trapper's ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each solo CD in his deep Discography. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders.

He originally hails from Washington State. His dad taught him how to yodel. He wanted to be a pro athlete, but wasn’t even close to having what it takes. He picked up an acoustic guitar and fell in love. He’s writing this bio. He’s referring to himself in the third person. He believes Jesus is for real. He loves being a husband and a father. He’s really normal and totally un-amazing. He tours quite a bit. He’s trying to find some sort of balance in this crazy busy world. He’s thinking about going back to a good old-fashioned flip phone. He’s never written a “hit” song, but some people really like them anyways. He hopes you are “some people.” He thinks maybe some day he will write a hit song, but he acknowledges that he also thought he would be a pro athlete. He likes to think that he sings from his soul. He is super stoked that you’re checking him out right now. Thanks for reading & listening. Peace. A couple stat lines that my managers think might impress you:

It can be argued that it was Booker T. Jones who set the cast for modern soul music and is largely responsible for its rise and enduring popularity. On classic Stax hits like “Green Onions,” “Hang ‘Em High,” “Time Is Tight,” and “Melting Pot” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Musicians Hall of Fame inductee and GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipient pushed the music’s boundaries, refined it to its essence and then injected it into the nation’s bloodstream. Sound the Alarm, the new album from Booker T, finds the Hammond B3 organ master looking ahead yet again, laying down his distinctive bedrock grooves amid a succession of sparkling collaborations with some of contemporary R&B’s most gifted young voices. Sound the Alarm also marks Booker T’s historic return to Stax Records, the Memphis soul label the instrumentalist, bandleader, producer, and songwriter helped put on the map during the 1960s, along with his brilliant band, the MGs. Creatively, it’s another bold new step in a career that has witnessed a striking resurgence in recent years. Booker T took home Best Pop Instrumental Album GRAMMY Awards for both 2010’s Potato Hole, his head-turning collaboration with The Drive-By Truckers and 2012’s The Road From Memphis, his critically acclaimed album with The Roots.
