Denver violinist Katie Glassman studied music the University of Colorado. She s playing an Elvis tribute Sunday in Denver.

Elivs Presley, you’re a big jerk for overdosing.

If, in fact, you did OD… (Tell Biggie Smalls and Tupac I say “hello.” Make sure my late pups Ezra and Alli are spooning.)

Anyway, those who don’t love Elvis, please lend me your bum.


When Elvis was 19 in 1954, he recorded a little something called The Sun Sessions, featuring songs he recorded through 1954-1955 at Sun Studios.

Denver fiddle queen Katie Glassman will cover the King’s earliest and lesser-known tunes at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret, 1601 Arapahoe St., Denver, with Elvis Sun Sessions Tribute Show on Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

Glassman has been described as playing every genre from rockabilly to vintage jazz to classic/Western swing to bluegrass.

Elvis would approve.

He would also endorse the swanky Lannie’s, which is located on Denver’s 16th Street Mall — underground in the D&F Clocktower. The oft-burlesque, side-show, magic show, drag show and comedy venue has a sexy atmosphere and a gorgeous little cabaret vibe.

Glassman, who studied jazz and classical violin at the University of Colorado, will be joined by CU professor Sean McGowan on guitar, the Colorado Avalanche organist Eric Moon and Charlie Mertens on the upright bass for the tribute.

Keep those thrusting pelvises at bay. That’s Elvis’ job. (And maybe Glassman’s.)

Ballin’ with the Nugs

Who likes Corey Brewer?

Me, me!

Who has a photo with the ear-to-ear grinning badass Nugget from a Denver bar?

Me, me!

I’m not that special. The Nuggets sharp-shooting forward went to the University of Florida (where yours truly attended). Brewer popped into the Rocky Mountain Gator Club at Jackson’s in Denver (where yours truly frequents for Gator games) one college football Saturday ago and I, along with every other person in the joint, lined up for a picture with the smiley star.

Not only is said grin beaming brighter in person, but he was the most damn pleasant dude. Such a nice guy.

(Plus, my tall ass looked petite next to the 6-foot-9-inch baller. I’ll take it.)

Anyway, go support Brewer and the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center, 1000 Chopper Circle, Denver, tonight at 7, where the Nugs face the Washington Wizards — where former Denver player Nene now plays.

Now that the Broncos season is over (boo!), let’s funnel our support to our basketball team. Go Nuggets! Beat Nene!
