    Cornmeal at the Aggie Theater

    I just took a look at my events calendar on Facebook and apparently I am attending four shows tomorrow night. Yep it is true, I am going to see Cornmeal at the Fox, Polytoxic at the Boulder Theater, Tedeschi Truck Band at the Fillmore, and Kyle Hollingsworth Band, featuring Michael Kang at Hodi’s Halfnote. I guess I just can’t help myself, I see a good show and say to myself, heck yeah, I am going to that!

    We live in a great place for concerts and I apologize to all of the other great bands that are

    Kyle Hollingsworth

    gigging this weekend and not mentioned here. Sometimes planning for a weekend’s entertainment is like planning a play in the big game, trying to figure out how, where and when to go, … cash a lot of times being a big factor.

    Here is my game plan, as it turns out both Cornmeal and Elephant Revival are playing a couple of shows this weekend. I plan to catch Cornmeal at the Aggie in FortCollins tonight. I will miss Cornmeal at the Fox Theatre on Friday, Elephant Revival at the Bluebird Theater, The Kyle Hollingsworth Band at Hodi’s and Tedeshi Trucks at the Fillmore. I will instead opt for the also amazing Polytoxic’s Last Waltz Revisited at the

    Tedeschi Trucks Band

    Boulder Theater. That will free me up to see Elephant Revival and the Steep Canyon Rangers at the Boulder Theater on Saturday.

    Are you keeping track… I am trying too… the Kyle Hollingsworth Band is also playing a show at Cervantes on Saturday so whatever combination works for you, catch a few shows or if you are like me try to catch them all.

    One quick note, cash and timing has me missing Hollingsworth and Tedeschi Trucks shows however, Kyle tickets are very affordable and if you can’t go out or afford the $50

    Elephant Revival

    tickets for Tedeshchi Trucks then I have good news, the The show at the Fillmore Auditorium will, for the first time, be broadcast on iclips.net. If you pre-order the show it is only 10 bucks.

    See you at the show.

    Free Motet? Really? That is a motivating thought.

    A seemingly endless list of task to accomplish this weekend had me not thinking about the awesome lineup of musicians performing at for the Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest. In its 23rd year, NewWestFest offered three days of free music.

    It breaks my heart to think of all the awesome music I missed, G. Love and Special Sauce, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Asleep at the Wheel, WhiteWater Ramble, Fox Street All Stars, The Emmit-Nershi Band, The Otis Taylor Band and many more groups all performed free of charge for the annual event.  In fact there were over 80 bands scheduled over the three days.

    The Motet, one of my favorite local bands, a had posted an event from their Facebook page, and the idea just kept rattling in my head… the Motet are playing a free show only an hour north of here.

    Sunday afternoon I headed up to see the show.  It looked overcast and you could see rain clouds over the mountains and I figured, what the heck, I have seen some of my best shows when it looks like rain.

    It was a good thing too… the show was fantastic.  When I arrived the band was about to take the stage and there were only 75 or so people in the crowd.  Did I mention there were 9 stages at NewWestFest… so at this stage the audience was just arriving.  Then the Motet took the stage and just like that the place was packed.  I walked up to the front and had a great time my fears of rain abated up until the last song.  That is when the Motet brought the rain… just a few drops by the last song.  I heard a fan say this was the best band here! Being the only band I saw at the event I quickly agreed.

    The crowd cheered and brought the band back to the stage that by this time had started to get soaked with rain.  By the end of the last song, most of the crowd seemed undaunted by the summer rain and stayed till the very end.

    So the Motet set was fantastic, they brought the rain… and I will drive a ways for free Motet.

    Another chance to see The Motet is just around the corner.  Joey Porter announced during the show that they will be performing at NedFest in just two weeks.  For more information visit www.nedfest.com.
