and the Boyz II Men remix:
This baby girl is a trend setter, people! Notice the trends being set.

Last night The National played to a dense and frantic crowd at the Fillmore Auditorium. I don't really have the words to describe the scene, but it looked and felt like thousands of exploding stars, with each person in the crowd having their own semi-private reaction to beginning chords, whispered words or furious shouts. On more than one occasion I felt my chest get torn open, my heart get pulled out and held in air, dripping with blood, bruised and barely beating, in front of me. I could only look at it out of my periphery, fearful of the self-examination that would surely follow a direct glance. I stared at the floor. Then up at a chandelier. Then back at the floor, avoiding eye contact with my hovering heart at all costs. My eyes filled with salty water, the tides rolling back and coming in with a simple lyric or subtle hand gesture. I felt my limbs and organs atrophy as singer Matt Berninger rolled the lyric "think I'd better follow you around, you might need me more than you think you will." I finally made eye contact. And I saw my heart shaking and sputtering violently, a whirligig in hurricane winds. The rapid combustion was too much and when asked "How can anybody know how they got to be this way," it finally burst, scattering pieces of invisible ventricle and muscle through the air. As the music stopped and I slowly regained consciousness and motion I wondered how he could do it...how can you stand up in front of thousands of people, explode your own heart and somehow pick the pieces out of the jumbled mass of fleshy asteroids created by the explosions of thousands of others and make yourself complete again?

Hello all ye' travelers of well being and purveyors of healthy activities. I present you with a quotum, a quandry, and a disturbing fact by which all disturbation is judged. Our dear friends and talented Denver artists, 200 Million Years, were the victims of an unfortunate event last weekend. All of their music gear (samples included) was stolen from their vehicle. Having thrust forward with new songs, valuable stage presence, and a groovy sense of wonder, these guys are well on their way to stardom and were stopped dead in their tracks by a thief. So now it is incumbent upon us to help out our fellow artists and creators of good in this town. I've never seen a band more excited than these guys were to perform last Friday night...and I have never seen a band more devastated after the sudden loss of all their stuff. Please won't you help by downloading their EP from band camp. You name the price! Even if you already have it though, please give a little something. Afterall, they would do the same for you.
Our good friend Heather Browne has made an immaculate mix to bring in the new season (artwork by yours truly). Autumn is upon us and its golden tendrils have only just begun to shine. This mix brings about the feelings of warmth associated with this fascinating season. Don't sit back and let another day go by without getting a piece of sweet fuel/friends pie in ya! Make Elton John proud of you for a change, instead of just shamefully shaking his head at you, like he does sometimes. Seriously though, there are some gems here:

Fierce Bad Rabbit (good friends of Bocumast and old lead singer of The Jimi Austin) are releasing their new full-length this Saturday in Fort Collins. It's at Aggie Theater, starts at 8pm and is all ages. Ian Cooke (another great friend of ours) is on the bill as well! This is not a show to be missed!
So I know the sound quality isn't the best, but here is a clip from last night's event. 10 drummers. 10 pm. 10-10-10...In case you missed it. My ears are still ringing, but what fun! Special Thanks to fez for setting it up.
For years now, Bocumast has been following the careers of some big musical thinkers that go by the name of Snowden. If you have had the privilege of seeing them live you are very fortunate and you know what we are talking about when we say that this is seriously one of the best bands to grace the modern ages. "Slow Soft Syrup" is a pure magical music crystalline sculpture. Its was carved from the same stuff that can only be found in the inner workings of Superman's ice cave place....you know, where he goes to think and watch videos. We have eagerly been awaiting a new release from these guys for years now and we are losing patience....so please please please go support them. Your heart will grow twice its size when you hear this EP.
