The Larimer Lounge does one thing better than anyone else in the area: It brings the rock. Sure, the venue has brought in indie rock progenitors like Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Sebadoh, it’s also seen acts like Arcade Fire and Bat for Lashes who have since outgrown the venue. Aside from a variety of national acts who come through every month, Larimer Lounge brings in a number of local bands as well.

Sometime in the last year, Force Publique shifted its focus a bit to include electric guitar rather than bass and the opted for using an MPC over playing pre-crafted beats made on software. The resu... More »
Wampire is a five-piece whose music doesn't seem fixed to a particular musical period, especially the current era. If anything, the band's gently swirling, swaying melodies are buoyed almost imperce... More »
Petals of Spain doesn't consider its latest release to be a full-fledged album. "It's more of a culmination," bassist Mason Shelmire asserts. "We wanted to get something out." That something is Soul Canon, a record that represents a good two... More »
With a name that translates roughly to "stranglehold" in Norwegian, this sextet has spent the last six years cultivating a sound that feels like a mixture of black metal and the Stooges, Cave In and Converge. Fittingly, the frontman of that last... More »
Event Review: The FAMM
I've seen The FAMM a bunch of times now and have to say this is REAL Hip Hop being done by REAL MC's. These guys paint a picture with their words and get the party jumping. Trust me if you haven't seen them so yourself a favor and get to this show!
Though the idea of inviting completely inexperienced musicians, journalists, promoters and scenesters to get behind the decks seems like a bad one -- especially at the Larimer Lounge, a venue that rarely showcases dance music -- DJ Hot to Death (aka Monolith Music Festival's Matt Fecher) has turned his weekly event into the place to be on Monday nights. Sparkly electro-clubbers rub elbows with gritty rocker dudes and earthy singer-songwriters, while the music runs the gamut from... More »
Lately, happy hours at the Larimer Lounge have gotten happier. In addition to daily happy hours from 4 to 8 p.m. with $1 PBRs and Miller High Lifes, $2 wells and $3 you-call-its, the club has reinstated its late-night happy hours: Sunday through Thursday, midnight until close, you can grab $2 PBRs and High Lifes. The club's also souped up its happy hours by adding a few attractions: Monday it's Ninja Bingo; Wednesday it's Courier Happy Hour, with free Benny Blanco's pizza; Thursday it's free... More »
There's no doubt about it: When it comes to booking the best national acts, the Larimer Lounge consistently beats every venue in town. Sometimes, though, the club's intimacy has worked against it -- especially when bands are way too big, in terms of both popularity and sheer size, to fit comfortably on the stage. But recently, co-owner Scott Campbell expanded the cramped platform and upgraded the P.A., and the change has been remarkable. With improved sound and visibility, the Larimer... More »
Aesthetically speaking, nothing much stands out about the Larimer Lounge: The stage is awkwardly placed, the sound is merely adequate, and the bathrooms are cramped and dingy. But the Lounge does one thing better than anyone else: It brings the rock. Besides, some of the great rock rooms of history -- the long-defunct Jabberjaw in L.A, Emo's in Austin and CBGB in New York -- have been plagued by those things, too. Those looking for posher environs would do well to venture further south into... More »
Many of the lofts in the Ballpark neighborhood sit empty, casting a ghost-town pall over the area during daylight hours. Still, upper Larimer Street got a considerable jolt of life late last year when the Larimer Lounge opened as a music venue with a formidable calendar. After taking over the space, formerly a watering hole known as the Sunshine Lounge, owners Scott Campbell and Mark Gebhardt managed to fill the joint with that nebulous thing known as a good vibe. With live bands and DJs... More »
