Tuesday music club

There's a ton of good music to see Tuesday night, 10/12.

Film School is at Hi-Dive, $12. Check out "Heart Full of Pentagons"

Foals is at Larimer Lounge (Liking the LL's new website by the way) $13

Caribou and Envy are also in CO.

We have similar dilemmas Oct. 18, when The National, Seabear and K-Os are all in town but in different places. It's hard to pick.

Here's some more Film School. Enjoy:

Sunday news

Can't wait for the Chilean miners to emerge ... !
The last time Jukebox the Ghost was in Denver, singers Tommy and Ben both lost their voices for a spell. The vocal cords held out fine this time, and their sound was polished.

This is a band that's built themselves a rep for sunny, bubbly melodies (they even have a blog devoted to gum, fwiw) even if the lyrics aren't always that way. They pull songwriting ideas from lots of influences. And how many guitarists do you know who sing arpeggios for the mic check? Hooray for Earth, which was one of the openers, jumped on stage to play tambourine, shakers and a few keyboard lines for Jukebox's cover of The Cure's "Close to Me." (In their own set, Hooray for Earth had a few glitches with their synth and robots but still did fine.) Jukebox the Ghost played 3 encores, finishing with a cover of "I Love You Always Forever" by Donna Lewis. (They previewed it by saying, "We're going to take you back to 1994. Most of you probably heard this in the dentist office." That prompted one audience member to say, "That's the year I was born!")

Jukebox the Ghost in Denver

Fridays are for celebratin'! Tonight they're in Seattle at the High Dive, but come Friday, Jukebox the Ghost will be at the Hi-Dive in Denver, 10/8. Leave the work week behind, grab a beer, dance around.

Check out their song, "Empire."

Or watch the video for "Schizophrenia":

Observations from Jimmy Eat World, Ogden, 10/3/10

_ Denver loves Jimmy Eat World.
_ We really just wanted them to play their old stuff. They can save "The Middle" for Omaha.
_ How many guitar picks does Jim Adkins have? Ha, he kept throwing them out to the crowd. Also, he must lose 2 lbs of sweat each show
_ We Were Promised Jetpacks opened. The Scottish band sounds like a throwback to the days of when Jimmy Eat World got started: active drumkit, moments of frenetic guitar, single-color vocals. They sold out their own show at the Hi-Dive back in March and got people to the Ogden early. A short set though to make way for Jimmy Eat World
