Episode 4 – Jonny Ashburn of Caspian

Fans of Massachusetts’ post-rock outfit, Caspian are no stranger to the textural soundscapes the band paints throughout their vast catalog of releases. The band’s most recent album, “Dust and Disquiet” represents a sonic shift to a darker tone. When asked how the band was feeling going into writing this record of catharsis, Ashburn replied “We spent a lot of time writing that record. We were in our space for 8 months, doing three or four days a week. It’s definitely an emotional record for us, and there are...

Episode 3 – Pegboard Nerds

To the normal eye any rave or electronic concert just looks like a bunch of sweaty bodies jumping together to the same beat. However to any regular concert go-er, they can see the actual bond that is made between the crowd’s energy and the DJ’s music. Pegboard Nerds are a Danish/Norwegian duo that are anything but new to the scene of dubstep/trap style electronic music. At the stroke of midnight on Halloween weekend, the duo absolutely blew the roof off of Beta Nightclub in Denver. Their opening song Blackout immediately got the crowd excited...

Concert Review: The Dillinger Escape Plan

Concert Review: The Dillinger Escape Plan

A couple of years back I had the distinct pleasure of watching the Dillinger Escape Plan as they headlined the “Summer Slaughter Tour”. Even in Denver’s cavernous Ogden Theater, Dillinger still managed to make the show as intimate as a small club gig would be. Fast forward one album cycle, and a heartbreaking announcement of the band’s impending dissolvement, and they are as much of a volatile force to be reckoned with as ever. The Dillinger Escape Plan uncompromisingly harnesses the sound of controlled chaos. Any listener can attest to their...

Pancakes, Yetis, and Reel Big Fish

On October 26th, I attended a show at the Aggie the likes of which I have never previously experienced The first act, Maryland’s Stacked Like Pancakes, started off the night with a riotously fun energy that perfectly set the stage for Reel Big Fish’s main set. A typical ska band, full of obscenity and a killer horn section, Stacked Like Pancakes did not bring anything new to the table. But they created an appropriately upbeat and lively atmosphere that definitely got the crowd dancing and  jumping along. The second act is where it...
