The Magic Beans w/ Modern Measure @ The Bluebird Theater (10/10/15) [Review/Photos]

Review and Photos by Kyle Sutton

It was early in the morning, sometime between 3 and 4 a.m. The music had come to a close at Wakarusa 2013 and attendees began to leave the venue. A friend and I were among these people.

As we walked down shakedown street, we began to hear the faint sound of music coming from the distance and with each step, it got louder and louder. After walking for a bit, we stumbled across the source of the music and a crowd of people surrounding the main gate where people were exiting. 

Energy was high, especially for a group that just raged a 4-day long festival in shin-deep mud. I made my way to the front to see what all the commotion was about. A band had set up shop right there at the entrance/exit. The music sounded like funk, but the jams were longer and spacey plus a little hint of bluegrass. It was like a beautiful fusion of all my favorite genres of music, so of course I was hooked.

That was my first Magic Beans experience. 

Fast forward to last Saturday. This time the venue was The Bluebird Theater in Denver, CO, the Beans' home state. 

Two years after the pop-up set at Waka, the Magic Beans – which consists of Scott Hachey on guitar, Josh Appelbaum on bass, Casey Russell on keys/synth and Cody Wales on drums – are rapidly solidifying themselves as one of the better bands to come from Colorado. 

The energy at the Bluebird was extraordinary. People in Colorado love them some Beans, that's for sure, and with good reason. Their music is impossible to stand still too. By note one your booty muscles have already made it clear to you that there will be dancing...and lots of it. 

So thats what we did. We danced all night long, using the band's music and energy as fuel for our party. 

Music aside, this particular night also featured a little added bonus in the form of Mr. ROYGBIV himself Saxton Waller. While the Beans adhered to our musical likings, the STS9 lighting director dazzled us with a beautiful visual experience. 

After all was said and done, the night was a huge success and I can honestly say there will be plenty more Beans shows in this writer's future. 

If you missed out on the Beans this time, don't fret. The boys will be back in Colorado on Oct. 29 at the Barkley Ballroom in Frisco, Oct. 30 at Schmiggity's in Steamboat Springs and a HallowBean extravaganza at The Aggie Theater in Fort Collins on Oct. 31.

Flux Pavilion's "Tesla" Album is OUT NOW!

Review By: Murrah Sabouni
Flux Pavilion at Forever Festival 2014 in Detroit, MI
If you’re looking for variety, be sure to listen to Flux Pavilion’s new album, Tesla, released on September 18th, 2015. Tesla still has the old head banging Flux that we all love, but it’s evident that he’s taking a new approach and being respectably more innovative with his sound. He’s thrown in a mix of different genres, from heavy bass featured in his track “Vibrate” to the more melodic tune of “Emotional”, featuring noted vocalist, Matthew Koma. In addition to Matthew Koma, Tom Cane and Andrea Martin also appear on Tesla, which gives a more emotional feel to the album. This album is branching him out from his dubstep roots and introducing us to a new Flux. Check out the album for yourself!
