Front Range recommended shows 7/22

It's always feast or famine. Last week I left a couple of choices off to keep the list at a manageable size. This week I only found one show (not counting Robert Earl Keen that I picked last week).

Wednesday, 24 July (Boulder Theater, Boulder CO)
Robert Earl Keen

Americana icon Robert Earl Keen showed up in my list last week for his Mishawaka show. This week he's playing at the Boulder Theater. Stealing from last week's notes: Even if you're not sure you know his name, you can count on recognizing several of Keen's classic tunes. "The Road Goes On Forever" isn't just his most famous song, it's come to represent his long lasting connection with audiences all over America.

Adam Ant

War paint fashion and infectious rhythms were Adam Ant's stock in trade back in the heady days of the 1980s. After a number of mental-health related incidents, his career seemed largely over. But early this year, he finally released the album he's been promoting for the last three years, Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner's Daughter. A lot of time has passed, but you can count on Ant putting on a great show, presumably laced with fine sense of humor and spectacle.
