Sturgill Simpson. Ogden Theatre. 11.05.15

Sturgill Simpson. Ogden Theatre. 11.05.15 As the old-timey sounds of The Osborne Brothers’ “Listening to the Rain” bled into the glammy jam of T. Rex’s “The Motivator”, the man who has been called the Savior of Country Music didn’t have much to say about anything at all.

Death Grips. Ogden Theatre. 06.24.15

Death Grips. Ogden Theatre. 06.24.15 “I’ve got the powers that B, running through me!” A shirtless MC Ride was marking his territory on the large, spacious stage in front of a violently enthusiastic audience.

Thoughts are fleeting. The rich narrative that builds in my head during any given show is usually gone within 24 hours. Like spring snow melting down to nothing more than wet spots reflecting the sun, the details of any given performance dissolve down to nothing more than flashing lights and snippets of feelings that have long since past.

Mazzy Star. Ogden Theatre. 11.10.13

Hope Sandoval wants to be heard, not seen. If that wasn’t made apparent by the strict ‘no photography’ rule, it should have been when she made her way onto a candlelit stage cloaked in shadows. Dressed in all black, there was nothing more than that signature seductive voice and a little flash of flesh separating the hem of her dress and… Read more →
