Colorado is a wonderful place for live music. It’s just that simple. The majestic beauty of the Front Range coupled with its convenience as a stopping point for any given tour means we are utterly flush with concerts most nights of the week. That also means sometimes shows don’t get the attention they deserve. There was maybe a hundred souls in and out of Hodi’s Half Note on Friday night. The fact remains that given the caliber of music on the stage this show should have been a sell out. Consider The Source is a wild ride through progressive jam music with a focus on the sounds of the Far East. Genetics puts on an utterly distinctive concert experience taking viewers on a sonic journey through a myriad of musical landscapes.
Set One: Now That’s What I Call Music, Hexagonal, Harlequin, Space Peach> Massive, Air Blower, Moose
Consider The Source, the self described “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion” band, is a power trio hailing from New York City. They are a full frontal musical assault on the senses. Gabriel Marin plays a double neck fretless guitar with an unbelievable array of pedals and effects at his feet. The sounds he creates live are unheard anywhere else. John Ferrara uses a slap style on the 5-string bass that is mesmerizing while drummer Jeff Mann holds it all together.
