Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

November 17th, 2016

Rose is a Boulder-based outdoor climbing enthusiast. Here, she enjoys climbing on the legendary arch outside during the super moonset in Morrison early Monday morning. A frigid river crossing and precarious scrambling leads us to watch the super moon set from a spectacular location on earth. Rose recently completed climbing all 3 flatirons this summer!  Read More

Marcus has the enthusiasm for life and rock climbing. “If you have a good group of friends,” he smiles, “then climbing is amazing!” While he just started rock climbing only a year ago, he has ascended some of the more challenging routes in the area.  Read More

“Put me on a mountain, and I can find my way around,” Dan Beerman begins, “but get me in a building, and I have no idea where I am.” Dan absolutely loves to climb. You’ll hear him shout positive phrases when you’re out on the rocks with him. He’ll show you the ropes and let you know what ‘knot’ to do. One of his dreams is to be able to take groups out climbing  in Colorado’s best climbing spots.  Read More

“We must conquer the rock to show our mightiness.” comments Jonah on his experience rock climbing. This was Jonah’s first time climbing outdoors, catching a glimpse of what the rock’s in Boulder taste like. He has never done much climbing before, but due to the friendliness of the rock climbing community and the nature of climbing itself, he’s hooked. Even coming from a strong basketball background, he was still fascinated by Colorado’s  rock formations when he moved to Colorado.  Read More

Featured Artist: Wonderlic

May 6th, 2016

  This week, I sat down with Michael Whalen, guitarist and vocalist for Denver-based funk/jam band Wonderlic, to talk about their new album, what it’s like to be a band in this area of the country, and how surprisingly similar jazz and jam bands really are. To backtrack a bit, Wonderlic features Allen Galton on electric mandolin and vocals, Michael Whalen on guitar and vocals, and James Dare on bass. They see a rolling cast of drummers: Ryan Elwood, Zach West, and sometimes the original drummer on their first album, Alejandro Castano. They’re often joined on stage by friends... Read More

Featured Artist: Envy Alo

April 22nd, 2016

  Last Friday, I went to see local prog-funk trio Envy Alo at the Boulder House (right next to the Rio), which was once Absinthe House. Throughout the show, I couldn’t help but scrawl names of the artists that I love, whose influence I heard in Envy Alo. I heard a little bit of the Soft Machine, some Pink Floyd layered with bluesy vocals, threads of Surrealistic Pillow, and even a little early Radiohead in there somewhere. What is really striking is the fact that there’s almost a wall of sound effect, yet it comes from only 3 musicians. Envy Alo is Kevin Hinder on guitar, Aaron... Read More

Meet Brannen, Daniel, Carter, Thomas, Johnny, and Dennis (pictured left to right), the six-member band of FutureBirds. This indie rock band started their career back in 2008 out of Athens, GA and ended up playing at a local show this past Friday and Saturday night. The band is known for their unique country-rock infused sound and high energy shows; those qualities definitely showed this weekend. After the show, Carter, the guitarist/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist, shared a little about himself and the band. “I’m so happy we’re here and I’m excited to see where we’ll... Read More

The Mystery and Majesty of Boulder’s Saddle Rock Trail

July 2nd, 2014

Gregory Canyon’s trailhead has seen better days. Currently, it’s actually in the process of seeing better days, because construction vehicles are finally beginning to rebuild the road that was destroyed in last year’s floods. I hadn’t been in the Gregory Canyon area since before Boulder’s big flooding incident, so this road was quite a shock to me, but it was merely foreshadowing what was yet to come on the trail. The Saddle Rock trail looks quite a bit different since the floods. The flooding paved a huge riverbed through the forest area, leaving behind all of... Read More
