It's a slower week this week, but some great music nevertheless.
30 August (Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison CO)
Tedeschi Trucks Band
BB King is a living legend. Aside from being one the greatest living blues guitarist, he's a remarkably generous band leader, giving the rest of his band time to shine, too. He can fit more soul into a single vibrato note than a battalion of other guitarists.
Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks will be opening for King. Although they're a much younger generation than him, they clearly share his love of the blues. They're both phenomenal player themselves, so this will be a blistering hot night, regardless of the temperature.
31 August (Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Bellview CO)
Keb' Mo' is making up for a canceled show from this last May, when the Mish was closed by the High Park fire. His music comes straight from the heart, with dirty funk or vulnerable soul. It'll be a nice Friday evening up the canyon to kick back and catch the show.
