Burlimonster Music

As a musician, this is one of the most important categories to me. I’m still going to shoot bands at concerts and post the pics, write album reviews, and I may even publish some original work on here someday. Stay tuned!

https://youtu.be/oaGBq-nrS1k Hi, I'm Burlimonster. Welcome to the very first episode of Covercraft - a cover song series by myself and my family filmed in Minecraft Bedrock. It's our favorite way to combine a love of music, film, and gaming -- while still doing things together as a family. If you liked the video, make sure to leave it a thumbs [...]

Ben Folds at The Ogden Theatre in Denver

By |2020-03-13T20:54:48-06:00September 22nd, 2017|Categories: Music, Posts|

The crowd that came to see Ben Folds at The Ogden Theatre on Tuesday night demonstrated just how much love he still shares with his fans some twenty plus years after his raw voice and violent piano smashing first hit their ear drums. During that time, he's become one of the industry's most well-respected musical mavericks that does whatever the [...]

Guster at Paramount Theatre with Vetiver – 9 out of 10 High

By |2020-03-13T20:56:54-06:00February 9th, 2016|Categories: Music, Posts|

Denver turned out in great numbers for the Guster at Paramount Theatre show Saturday, February 6, 2016. By the time Guster started playing, it was a completely packed house. So packed that we even lost our original seats. The music was too chill for me to care. It was a night of epic musicianship and stoners (we'll talk about that more [...]

ESO, ESO, ESO – “Let it Snow” Parody of Elder Scrolls Online

By |2020-03-13T21:02:03-06:00December 28th, 2015|Categories: Gaming, Music, Videos|

Sean Caspian and I locked ourselves into the newly-built eciov studio last weekend and produced this quick parody for all the Elder Scrolls Online fans in the crowd. We called it "ESO, ESO, ESO" because it's a parody of the classic song "Let it Snow." He came up with the idea, and we brought it to life together. Take a [...]

It snowed here in Denver last night. My wife is decorating the tree and sipping on hot chocolate (I'm having coffee). That means it's time for Christmas. I'm hoping you won't mind us sharing our epic Spotify Christmas playlist here on the site. If you don't like Christmas music, or Christmas in general, please ignore this post and come back [...]

Owl City at The Gothic Theatre with Rozzi Crane

By |2020-03-13T21:05:42-06:00October 20th, 2015|Categories: Music, Posts|

Ryan Anderson at Foundations Music was kind enough to set us up with a photo pass to see Owl City at The Gothic Theatre with Rozzi Crane on Monday, October 19. As with all our concert reviews, we take photos, talk about the show, and promote the artists. That is, of course, if they're cool. Unfortunately, we sometimes pass on coverage [...]

Ben Folds Live at Red Rocks – June 21, 2015

By |2020-03-13T21:10:30-06:00July 8th, 2015|Categories: Music, Posts|

My wife and I spent our 8th wedding anniversary listening to Ben Folds play a concert with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. I'm a music nerd; the only thing that could've made this better for me would be playing with Ben on stage. That didn't happen, but I really wish it did. Maybe next time, Mr. Folds. Seeing Ben Folds Live [...]

By |2020-03-13T21:12:27-06:00June 16th, 2015|Categories: Music, Posts|

On June 8, I went to the Mae show to revisit my college days. You can consider this an anniversary or maybe a reunion show that focuses on my favorite Mae album: The Everglow. I'll dive more into Mae's history later; first, I want to talk about the openers. Mike Mains & The Branches were completely new to me. I saw them [...]

Amaranthe at the Bluebird with I Prevail and Santa Cruz – Concert Review

By |2020-03-13T21:12:59-06:00June 13th, 2015|Categories: Music, Posts|

On Friday, May 29, I was able to snag a photo pass for the Amaranthe show at the Bluebird in Denver, Colorado. We're going to trim the opener reviews down a bit since we were there for Amaranthe. The tour is over at this point, but check out the photos and look into the bands if you're interested. I do have to say that [...]

On Tuesday, May 19, I was lucky enough to snag a press pass for the Kamelot and DragonForce concert at The Ogden in Denver, Colorado. Wow, what a show. Both bands came out swinging with epic power metal riffs and amazing vocals. I've loved and listened to both bands for years. If you have a chance to see this show when [...]

By |2020-03-13T21:16:26-06:00April 24th, 2015|Categories: Music, Posts|

On Tuesday, April 21, Sean Caspian and I had the opportunity to see Nightwish at the Ogden Theatre here in Denver. We've both been fans for years and wanted to see their new singer, Floor Jansen, slay some epic vocals. We initially snagged our tickets via Enter the Vault during the pre-order and waited the six months until show time. That [...]

Jamie Cullum’s Interlude is a Jazz History Lesson

By |2020-03-13T20:31:11-06:00February 6th, 2015|Categories: Likes, Music, Posts|

When I first heard about Jamie Cullum's new album Interlude, I only knew its title and knew nothing about its content. That said -- the first listen felt a bit odd. The arrangements didn't sound like the Jamie Cullum I loved from his previous albums. Sure, Jamie's confident vocals made it seem musically perfect and well produced, but something still felt strange. [...]
