Review: FoCoMX

Guess what: FoCoMX was last weekend! In case you’ve never heard, FoCoMX is a two-night event celebrating local music. So, that means Old Town Fort Collins was flooded by over 200 performances (265 to be exact) at over 20 venues, all by local musicians from all over northern Colorado. FoCoMX offers a variety of features that a typical concert can’t offer. First, perhaps most obviously, is the sheer number of events that you have access to by purchasing a ticket – it really is a festival after all. Practically every 15 minutes people have...

Weekly News Roundup: March 13, 2015

Here’s your weekly news roundup for the week of March 9th – 13th.

Tuesday evening, two fraternity members involved were suspended and subsequently apologized, noting that the chant was taught...

Local Band Widow's Bane In-Studio Friday

Local Band Widow's Bane In-Studio Friday

Boulder’s very own self-proclaimed “zombie death polka” group Widow’s Bane isn’t your typical band. The Widow’s Bane released their first self-titled album in 2009. Their latest release, Don’t Be Afraid, It’s Only Death certainly has its vaudeville influences, yet it also channels New Orleans dixieland. To say this music is a fusion of many genres is a bit of an understatement. There are elements of folk, metal, sea chanty, punk, and even klezmer. The band is comprised of seven members: Mortimer...

Watsky Interview

I walked into the Aggie not knowing what to expect from a poetry show at a concert venue. I was greeted by George Watsky, sitting on his own surrounded by fifty fold out chairs in the bar area. Soon, the rest of the forty or so fans streamed into the venue to sit in a semicircle around one single bar stool. Watsky, a rising indie hip-hop artist, started his performing career as a slam poet and won the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. For his tour of his new album All You Can Do, he decided to incorporate an exclusive poetry show...

KCSU's Top Albums of 2014 (Cheyenne McCoy)

Posted by on 4:00 pm in CD Reviews, Local, Uncategorized | 0 comments

KCSU has received thousands of records this year, and as Music Director I’ve been #blessed to listen to a lot of them. Making this list was a lot harder than I expected because 2014 didn’t have as many gems to offer as more recent years. Some of the records that I was most excited for ended up being flops, and musicians that I’d never heard of totally stole the show. Here are my 20 favorite records of the year:   20. Conor Oberst, Upside Down Mountain Upside Down Mountain is definitely not the best album that Conor has ever put out, but...

Wick-It the Instigator Interview

Wick- It the Instigator, hailing from Kentucky, feels at home in the Ozarks at Wakarusa. Southern hospitality is alive and well at the festival where he played two sets. He braved the late night hours at the Satellite Stage, huddled in the woods, from 3:30- 4:45 am Thursday evening. Friday afternoon, he played a set at the same stage to a much larger and enthusiastic crowd. He was happy with his sets and praised Waka for the opportunity and experience. After three years preforming at the festival, Wakarusa has become a home. He was excited to...
