Mason Jennings :: Boulder tomorrow night

Looking for a good show tomorrow night? Of course you are.

Mason Jennings is coming to Boulder’s Fox Theatre this Friday with Ferraby Lionheart (that’s a fairytale character, right?) and Patrick Park. Mason is growing into a favorite of mine, with a sound that is alternately described as folk-rock-pop, protest-funk-rock . . . etc etc etc. I just call it some of the most fun you can have with an acoustic guitar, a bass, and some fat drum beats.

He’s got a wonderfully organic do-it-yourself ethic, from the home-recorded first album, to the forming of his own record label (Architect Records) so that he could release “his music, his way.” Now signed to Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace label, Mason is still blending introspective, poetic lyrics with inventive and soulful acoustic musicianship.

In the next few days here, I’ll have some good interviewin’ with Mason to share with you guys — so brush up now by coming to see him live (TIX):

  • I’ve lived in Minneapolis for about a year now and it’s kind of strange that it took the advice of someone far away to finally get me to listen to Mason Jennings. Whether it be my unwillingness to explore the things recommended to me by friends – or the fact that I will probably forever associate his name with Waylon Jennings…I don’t know – just never gave him a shot. Thanks Heather

  • enjoy Patrick Park.
    I sent something to about him a long time ago. I don’t know if you ever heard it, but he’s fantastic.

    The mason acoustic show at first Ave last year was awesome.

  • My brother and my sister both love Mason Jennings. I (for whatever reason) don’t like him too much. Hmm.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
