Bluebird Theater

The Jeff Austin Band played last week at the Bluebird Theater in Denver to showcase their new album, The Simple Truth. The performance proved loud and clear that the future is bright for Jeff Austin and his compadres, and that Austin is anything but done playing music after his separation from Yonder Mountain String Band earlier this year.

We’re taking a break from our national act posts to talk about Denver locals RAH (Rebecca Ann Henry, Daniel Greenblatt, and Will Scheisser) who have announced their newest live experience February 12th at the Bluebird Theater. In a little over a week, RAH will be joined by Honey Puddle (Led Zeppelin cover band), and Contraband in a night of upbeat music and a new age twist on circus arts, combining aerial dance and creative extravaganzas with live electronic rock performance.
