Some great shows coming up:
1 March - Aggie Theatre, Ft. Collins CO
4 March - Boulder Theater, Boulder CO
Gomez is bringing their diverse power pop/indie rock show back to the front range. The last time I saw them, they smoothly shifted instruments and sounds from song to song while preserving a loose, casual flow. The Sunday show in Boulder is actually an appearance on public radio's E-Town.
1 March - Fox Theatre, Boulder CO
The Funky Meters
The Funky Meters are a New Orleans mainstay. Art Neville and his band bring a creole mix of funk, jazz, and blues that can serve as an improptu medical test: if you're not moving when you hear them, you must be dead.
3 March - Aggie Theatre, Ft Collins CO
One of my favorite front range bands, Whiskey Blanket stirs up beat boxing, classical strings, and hip hop rhymes. They have a truly original sound. This free show is a great opportunity to check them out.

4 March - Aggie Theatre, Ft. Collins CO
Regardless of her status as a feminist and icon and political activist, Ani DiFranco has always made her strongest points with music. Her unique playing and lyrical perspective give her music a special flair that really shows best in a live setting.
