    Second Story Garage: The Motet

    09/24/2014 10:11 AM MDT
    The Motet has been around for 16 years, but it seems as if they're just bursting onto the scene. The Boulder funk masters recently released their seventh album. They self-titled it because, for the first time, they wrote it collaboratively and, they say, "The group has finally become what it has striven to be throughout its existence."

    Second Story Garage: Slow Caves
    09/17/2014 12:29 PM MDT - Slow Caves has an image, and that's a great advantage when you're a new band. Identity usually comes slow and by default in the textbook cycle of band life. But it came almost from the outset for this Fort Collins quintet, and its SoCal sheen, youthful swagger and skateboard cool seem, if not intentional, at least immediate to the project. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Caribou Mountain Collective
    09/10/2014 10:43 AM MDT - It seems to happen so often. A bunch of friends get a jam going at some guy's house in Nederland, and next thing you know, they're touring the country. Add Caribou Mountain Collective to the list. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Ark Life
    08/28/2014 09:17 AM MDT - On a recent morning, the Denver band Ark Life packed up and hit the road for a summer tour. Forty-five minutes into the trip, they stopped at their first engagement: Second Story Garage. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Fierce Bad Rabbit
    08/20/2014 09:15 AM MDT - The 1906 Beatrix Potter book "The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit" is about a rabbit who, well, is fierce and bad. He steals a carrot and gets his tail shot off. It's a strange little story, but it provided a Fort Collins indie folk-rock group with one of the best band names around. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: A tribute to great songwriting
    08/13/2014 09:29 AM MDT - On the occasion of Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, the chords-and-lyrics-based event in Lyons, Colorado, we've decided to look back at some of the most skilled songwriters who've come through the Garage. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Ash Grunwald
    07/16/2014 07:05 AM MDT - Ash Grunwald is from Australia, but American blues is in his soul. Like the best of the Delta bluesmen, he goes for a spare, penetrating sound that's universally understood, and we felt as if we knew just what he was saying when he ripped it up in the studio. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Jaden Carlson Band
    07/10/2014 01:07 PM MDT - Jaden Carlson, at 13, has to be one of the youngest performers ever to headline the Fox Theatre in Boulder. Musicians from all over the country aspire to step onto the Fox stage, and Carlson's gig at the Fox on July 12 is all the more meaningful since it's a hometown venue. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Taarka
    06/27/2014 08:10 AM MDT - Enion and David Pelta-Tiller are the type of artists who are so immersed in their musical community that they seem to know everyone. And they're the type of artists with whom everyone seems to have played at one time or another. Full Story

    Second Story Garage: The Vixens
    06/11/2014 11:26 AM MDT - Bonnie Sims is the irrepressible, warbly voiced dynamo who fronts the popular local country act Bonnie & The Clydes. Lauren Stovall is the cowboy boot-wearing, silky-voiced member of local award-winning bluegrass group The Railsplitters. Wouldn't it be so cool to see these two perform together? Full Story

    Three players saw time on field after safety's injury
    It takes three guys to do what Tedric Thompson does at strong safety in the Colorado defense. When Thompson had to leave last week's game at Cal after suffering a bruised sternum in the middle of the first half, Marques Mosley, Evan White and Terrel Smith all stood ready to replace him in the defense, depending on what package CU defensive coaches had on the field. Full Story
