Front Range recommended shows, 1/13

Recommended shows for the next week across the Colorado Front Range.

Friday, 17 January (Gothic Theatre, Denver CO)
Sunday, 19 January (Aggie Theatre, Ft. Collins CO)
Reel Big Fish

097 Reel Big FishLast year, Reel Big Fish made my shortlist of favorite shows. Their tight arrangements, fun stage banter, and smart ass attitude created a perfect storm of ska entertainment. They have a couple of shows this week in Denver and in Ft. Collins, so there's no excuse not to see them!

Saturday, 18 January (Ogden Theatre, Denver CO)
Panic! At The Disco

From wild theatricality (A Fever You Can't Sweat Out) to Beatlesque pop (Pretty...Odd) and back to stylized, artsy pop (Vices & Virtues and Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!), Panic! At The Disco has maintained a dedication to entertaining presentation and an aura of off-beat sensibility. In many ways, that makes them a better live act than in the studio, although their albums have been pretty decent..

Saturday, 18 January (Soiled Dove, Denver CO)
Stanley Jordan

Jazz guitar wonder, Stanley Jordan shows that jaw-dropping technique can be fully harnessed to the needs of the music. In his earliest days, his two-handed melodic playing style amazed audiences and the influential ripples spread well beyond jazz. These days, Jordan has matured as a player, but continues to push the boundaries of his instrument while making beautiful music.
