Greensky Bluegrass will return to Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre on Saturday, September 23rd as well as an intimate show at Boulder’s iconic Boulder Theater the night before.
Now, that’s cool and all but the real icing on the cake is that Portland’s rootsy-rock heros, Fruition, are set as support on the Red Rocks bill.
If you want in on the Boulder Theater show you’ve gotta pick up and exclusive 2-day pass via the fan pre-sale at greenskybluegrass.com/tour. General Red Rocks on-sale Saturday is set for January 7th at 10am MST.
TheSpvceAge is a new moniker for a veteran of the hip hop game who rose to prominence in the late 90’s, when he put beat making aside for a while to focus on DJing and creating his own brand of unique and highly original mixtapes. Better know by the name DJ Green Lantern, those previously stated reasons resulted in a signing with Eminem’s Shady Records, production on three incredible mix tapes for the label, and extensive touring with Eminem. In addition, Green Lantern provided the official mixtape for HBO’s How To Make It In America and toured with another hip hop legend- Nas.
Always eager to test new sounds in his own productions, Green Lantern has never been apprehensive about trying different approaches. He regularly dabbles with various electronic genres and combines them with his own personal vision of making music, which is why he found himself producing tracks heavily influenced by trap in recent times. One of the highlights among those was certainly his remix of Jay Z’s “Feelin It” which was part of hip hop mogul’s New Year show at Barclay’s Center.
Fast forwarding to the present, Gramatik’s label Lowtemp is now releasing his first official single under a new production alias called TheSpvceAge. This project represents a move to even more experimental grounds and the result is stunning. The track is hard to describe in one dimensional terms like funk or hip hop, when it’s obvious it is more about the style. The forward-looking cosmic vibe is in perfect harmony with sampled echoes of the past, creating an incredible retro-futuristic feel that has as much to do with funk and soul as it does with future bass.
STS9 has announced that the Lazy Americanz will be performing each night at the band’s upcoming 2-night stand at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. The band will play “In The Round” during STS9′s setbreaks, an honor that Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Welder and others have had the opportunity of doing in years past.
Lazy Americanz is a four-man band comprised of Grammy Award-winning production team J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Rook Flair, Coli Uncensored, and Kenny Barto) along with guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Tyler Cates. United by their love for live instrumentation, mutual respect for a broad range of genres, and a standard of sound quality that has pushed them to forgo the plug-ins others rely on in favor of old school production methods, the foursome has long been amassing a healthy portfolio of untapped music in preparation for exactly the kind of project that has now been realized as Lazy Americanz.

Photo by iWally Photography – Axe The Cables is back!! Jamtronica superstars STS9 just announced that they will be going unplugged each night at Red Rocks this coming September 5th & 6th in Morrison, Colorado. 2014 marks the bands 12th year in a row at the legendary venue and their 15th headlining performance.
Initially debuted in 2009 at the Gates Opera Hall, Axe The Cables has been performed only a handful of times since, most notably at Re:Generation 2011 & the stunning Axe The Winery show in 2012. Watch pro-shot video below!
Band management has confirmed that 3 full sets will be performed each night during the Red Rocks run.
Alana Rocklin – who recently joined the band after David Murphy’s departure - will be performing STS9 songs in the Axe The Cables fashion for her first time. Knowing her proven upright bass skills, we predict that she will mix up her instruments each night; it’s a no-brainer call.

“ Yonder Mountain String Band is all about family, and through the support of our family of fans, we have been able to play music for you for the past 15 years. We couldn’t be more proud about our successes and experiences performing at the best venues and festivals in the country, and for the most dedicated fans any band could ever wish to have. With this said, YMSB would like to share some news about the future of the band. Collectively, after long, heartfelt discussions, we’ve all decided to move forth with a newly formed line-up due to varying career goals and creative pursuits. As of today, all future YMSB shows will be performed with Adam Aijala (guitar, vocals), Ben Kaufmann (bass, vocals), and David Johnston (banjo, vocals). We will welcome exciting special guests throughout the rest of the year and we look forward to a new permanent line-up in 2015. YMSB fully supports Jeff Austin and his emerging solo career.
Yonder Mountain String Band will perform all scheduled dates throughout 2014 with the new line up and special guests. Jeff Austin will be announcing more dates for his solo endeavors in the coming months. The band wants the fans to know that this decision did not come easily, and we’ll certainly keep all of our fans up to date with the new Yonder band-member line-up information.
We greatly look forward to seeing everyone out on the road this Summer and Fall!
With Gratitude & Respect,
Ben, Jeff, Dave & Adam ”
