A Night of Storytelling with Blitzen Trapper

A Night of Storytelling with Blitzen Trapper

With the weather cooling down (shortly before the Autumn Equinox), walking in to The Downtown Artery for a Blitzen Trapper show seemed more than appropriate. This rustic folk band is rooted in Portland, Oregon and The Artery was to host one of the many stops on their tour. This tour is appropriately named “Songbook: A Night of Stories and Songs”, where Blitzen Trapper would take longer breaks between each song to delve into the history of how it was developed. The stories told between each song brought the entire experience to a...

Raven Rundown – Jenny Owen Youngs

Active since: 2005 Discography: 3 Albums Last released material: Sadly she has not released new music since her third album came out in 2012, hopefully she puts something new out soon! Why she’s awesome: Her music is a great mix of sounds, each album feels both very different from the others yet still very much recognizably her.  The listener can map her progress as an artist easily across her three albums, from the twangy girl with a guitar vibes of the first, to the matured and sadder tone of the second, to the confident and at times...

Diversity has now, more than ever, been a hot topic of discussion. With diversity, one can connect nearly every element of a society. Issues regarding diversity in the realm of social justice can tie in with the artistic community, and these connections go on. Many individuals perceive the topic of diversity as something very intimidating to address. To relieve this tension, CSU has been hosting a Diversity Symposium this week: with a ride range of panels presented across campus each day in order to familiarize students on the topic of...

What is That Mysterious Ticking Noise?

Last Friday, in the midst of the student exodus for The Rocky Mountain Showdown, a mysterious ticking noise began to pervade our air waves, here at KCSU-FM. And that’s never good. Being a student radio station means that technological issues are never exactly unexpected or shocking. But, this malfunction was uniquely challenging. Our radio adviser, Hannah Copeland, sent out a news update to the station’s staff and volunteers. In it, she explained what it was that turned our Friday into a story-worthy day: “The good news is...

Posted by on 4:05 pm in Local, Sports, Sports Blogs, Uncategorized | Comments Off on CSU Rams Embarrassed by CU, Now on to UTSA.

The Rams took a beating from their in state rivals the Colorado Buffalo. With a final score of 44 to 7 the Rams could not get anything going on offence or stop the high tempo offence of the Buffs on defense. 69,850 fans came to watch the 2016 Rocky Mountain Showdown. That crowd dissipated after half way through the third quarter. The word repeated by all the players after the game was “Embarrassed”. This word was said repeatedly by head Coach Mike Bobo’s post-game press conference. This team right now needs to choose do they want to do better...

FoCoMX Review: Meena Rezaei

Artist: The Covz      I walk into Hodi’s and was welcomed by ambient Christmas lights and The Covz providing the perfect mellow-beach rock to groove to. All the members were dressed to the nines; with bow ties and slacks to match the old school microphone they brought on stage with them. These boys clearly cared about their presentation and it went really well with the nostalgia that exuded from their music. The music itself was incredible, giving a beach-punk romantic vibe. Each song had its own characteristic but they all followed the...

Band: Holdfast The Saturday of FocoMX, April 23, the rock trio Holdfast held down the vibes at the Downtown Artery. Although the group is young, Charlie, Michael and Tommy blend their talents and had the audience entranced by their vocalist’s strong voice and synced up movements. While walking in, the crowd is small but the ambiance is high. Imagine walking into a low-light garage and sitting in the doorway while looking out into a blue sky in your favorite chair, with a flood of mid-afternoon light and wind flowing through. I was able to sit...

FoCoMX Review: Stephanie Vosicka

Artist: Post Paradise         Bringing a fresh new twist on alternative music with a strong emphasis on incorporating the cello, Post Paradise is as enticing live as they are from their latest album Bring It To Life (Side A). With a cultural background from: Colorado Springs, Florida, and New York, the band brings a whole melting pot of emotion and passion into their work. With rugged vocals that remind you of a lower pitched version of Fall Out Boy, along side the guitar and drums, which bring a feeling of classic rock, it’s the cello that...

FoCoMX Review: Anna Lueth

Artist: Izcalli        The Aggie Theatre, a relatively small, yet cozy venue located in downtown Fort Collins, was packed with energetic fans and FocoMx attendees having the time of their lives last weekend. When I first arrived at their show, the “Rock en Español” band from Denver, Izcalli, had already begun their public jam sesh on stage. I took a spot towards the front, leaning on the rails that separated the dancing crowd from the ones who observed the show from the elevated floor near the wall. The entire set was in Spanish, and I...
