Best Local Shows of the Year 2013 - Ken Kreie

By David Goe

I've asked several people deeply involved in the local music scene to recap their favorite local shows of the year. Here is the first in a series from Ken Kreie from the Cavalcade in Fruita. As always, I want to hear from you. Send your top five favorite local shows of the year to david.w.goe@gmail.com and I'll incorporate it into the final entry later this month. 


1) Caravan of Thieves - 4/2/13
These guys are Gypsy Jazz and full full full of energy and one of the most honed sounds we have had.

2) Hollow Wood - 7/19/13
All very young creative kids out of Idaho. We already had a Youth open mic planned and these kids came in and did a long set and I was blown away at how tight and interesting these kids were. There was like 10 kids in the band and only one could drink.

3) Loves It! - 7/3/13
This Duo from Virginia/Texas is so creative and fun. One of my current favorites. We have had them twice now and they played at Coyote Casa also. I heard good reviews from that show.

4) Victor and Penny - 11/2/13 
This duo out of KC plays antique pop. She is a gorgeous tall red head and he is a short snappy dresser. She plays Uke and he sings into an old tin can microphone and just create a real unique show.

5) Brainstorm / Social Studies / Radiation City - 3/20/13
This is one of my favorites from this year because we got the hip young crowd from GJ out. And some really good bands.

6) Mike Clark - 2/4/13 
I am adding on my 6th favorite because he is so damned good. This guy came solo from his usual outfit the Haunted Windchimes. Multi talented, soulful. A real treasure. It was a Tuesday show that like 10 people came to. But man he blew us away.

There were a couple of really good bands at Hot Tomato this summer too, Hey Mersailles and Phox in particular.
