Front Range recommended shows, 5/13

Not such a full collection of shows this week, but these two are guaranteed to impress.

Monday, 13 May (Ogden Theatre, Denver CO) [2 shows]

Somehow I missed this last week when I was collecting shows. Prince packed the calendar at the Ogden, with two shows a night for two nights in a row. At $250 a ticket, you better really need some purple rain in your life, but I can tell you that Prince is a consummate entertainer and he will certainly funk you up. Now, if I can only take out a loan...

Saturday,18 May (Boulder Theater, Boulder CO)
Hot Tuna

Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were acoustic players at heart, long before they helped get Jefferson Airplane off the ground. Hot Tuna initially provided a side project for them to indulge their love of acoustic blues. Eventually the band evolved to cover acoustic and electric sets and offer a partnership beyond the Airplane.

This show will feature the acoustic version of the band with a special, one-time guest, Steve Kimock. Kimock is well known as a jam band guitarist with a special connection to the music of the Grateful Dead. This promises to be a phenomenal night of transcendent music.
