That 80′s Band kicks off Memorial Day weekend. Boulder Creek Event’s first summer concert at 29th street in Boulder. What we witnessed was this great band doing covers of 80s music…like all of it…and they did it well. The audience was a new audience for Boulder too. A little cooler. Not so public and fun. That 80s band saw a big crowd who enjoyed their music. But most of all they did a good job of covering everything from Michael Jackson to the B-52s. Hats off and come back to Boulder soon.
Heidi introduces us to the Boulder Summer Concert Series and this one by The Nacho Men singing Disco Inferno on a warm summer evening, with lots of dancing from the jam packed crowed.
Gary Shackleford introduces Boulder Channel 1 and then plays us a short Jam on his guitar.
Several thousand people were on hand last night on the Pearl Street mall for the first Wednesday night Band on the Bricks concert of the summer. Paper Bird was frivolous, fun and mildly entertaining in a goofy kind of way. Not to be taken seriously as musicians ( they couldn’t play) but they did spin their way through several folky, blue grassy, 1940′s original tunes. Their focus is to “send up”, make fun of and insult musical forms especially blue grass. Thusly, they are called underground.
Basically they were a bunch bums from Breckenridge( or at least they met in Breck according to their website) who formed a terrible garage band around 3 cute girls who managed to harmonize and Walla! a real authentic American underground band .
