Music Scene: Week of April 30, 2010

Mayday! Mayday! A celebration and benefit for KAFM 88.1 Community Radio is going down on Saturday, May 1, at Boomers, 436 Main St.

The event will feature Denver-based GT & the Sidewinders playing rockabilly blues.

“Think Johnny Cash on the rocks with a twist!” That’s how the band describes its sound to visitors on its MySpace page.

“GT & the Sidewinders are cooking up some good old American music with a modern twist. It’s not traditional swing, honky-tonk or rockabilly ... but a rich blend of all three,” the band says on its page. “This powerful four-piece includes both lead and rhythm guitar, drums, outstanding vocals and an old-school upright slap-style bass. GT’s unique voice and original songs appeal to any American music lover.”

Doors will open at 8 p.m. with opener Far Guitar, featuring John Scott Schultz.

The show will include door prizes including a pass to Rockygrass, which takes place this summer in Lyons.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at or at the door. Call 241-8801, ext. 223, or go to the website for more information.
