Break out the glitter and feather boas.
A hit on the college circuit who sells out theaters in Boulder and Fort Collins, BoomBox drew about 300 people to the Knotty last fall. The tandem mixes house beats with organic guitar riffs. Check out the seductive groove of “Stereo” from BoomBox’s debut album or “Showboat” from downriverelectric.
Godchaux is the son of Donna and the late Keith Godchaux, members of the Grateful Dead in the 1970s. Although he has tried to cut his own musical path, elements of his Dead heritage trickle into the boogie, such as an amped-up cover of “Shakedown Street.” Fortunately, his style is more like his dad’s blazing keys from “Sugar Magnolia” circa ’73 than his mother’s vocals on “France.”
In conjunction with the Knotty, we’re giving away two pairs of tickets. In the comments, say you’re in, and two winners will be chosen at random at 4 p.m. Entrants must provide a full name. Each winner will receive two tickets.
Tickets are $15, available by calling the Knotty at 208-787-2866 or at the door. Chali 2na sold out earlier this week at the Victor supper club, and only about 100 tickets remain for Galactic on March 20.
