Yoga Playlist, Colorado-Style.

Via on Mar 9, 2012

In honor of 303 Day, I put together the following yoga playlist of some of my favorite local artists.

I play a lot of local music in my classes anyway, but choosing which artists and songs to include during a one-hour 303 Day class wasn’t easy.  There are many terrific local artists not represented below.

I’ve included links to each artist’s website as well as the info I could find regarding their next live show.  I’m sure I’ve gotten something wrong; please feel free to let me know if so.  And definitely use the comments section to share who your own favorite local artists are!

– “Virginia May,” by Gregory Alan Isakov – looks like he’s opening for Brandi Carlile at Red Rocks this summer

– “Barefoot Friend,” by Elephant Revivalfind their tour info here

– “Customs,” by Braddigan – no shows scheduled at this time, but you can sign up for his mailing list

– “Everything Is Alright,” by Fierce Bad Rabbit – they’ve got several local shows coming up

– “Happy Ending” (feat. Angie Stevens ), by The Flash Mob – their next show is 3/23/12 at Casselman’s

– “Ho Hey,” by The Lumineers – I am in love with this band! – they’re traveling now, back in Colorado in April, and then playing the Bluebird Theater on 5/11/12

– “Make a Noise,” by Katie Herzig – she’s on tour now, back in Denver in May

– “Airplane Mode,” by the Flobots – I couldn’t find any upcoming tour dates

– “Hunting Season,” by The Epilogues – they’re playing Denver’s Gothic Theatre on 3/23/12

– “Runner,” by The Yawpers – The Yawpers are one of my new favorites, and they’ve got several local shows planned

– “Early Spring Till,” by Nathaniel Rateliff – also check out The Wheel and Born in the Flood (I especially love the song “Anthem”) – looks like Rateliff is touring now and back in Denver in April

– “Bar Talk,” by Take To The Oars – I so love their band name – they are also playing the Gothic on 3/23/12

– “City of Lights,” by Air Dubai – they’re traveling now, but playing Denver Day of Rock on 5/26/12

– “Whiskey Rain (High Lonesome Mix),” by Angie Stevens – she’s playing The Soiled Dove on 3/9/12 as part of her new collaboration, I’m With Her

– “Further to Fall,” by Dan Craig – his Facebook page says he’s playing every Thursday during March at Lost Lake

I’ve put together a Best of Colorado playlist on Spotify featuring some of my favorite songs by Colorado artists (plus Wyoming’s The Patti Fiasco).  This playlist includes most of the above songs, though not all of them are currently available on Spotify.  It’s an ever-evolving list, as I’m always looking for bands to check out.  You can also listen to music on nearly every artist’s webpage that I’ve linked to above.  (If you’re wondering where some of the usual suspects are, I chose to put some of our more widely known local artists on my pre-class playlist, and I’ve included these on the Spotify list too.)

Lastly, I must say a word about the Railbenders.  I tried hard to include them on my yoga playlist, but it just wasn’t working for the yoga class.  (I did include Angie Stevens’ version of “Whiskey Rain,” which is excellent, though much sadder-sounding than the original.)  Anyway, if you haven’t seen these guys live, you should check them out.  They are a BLAST.  They are playing at the Soiled Dove on 3/31/12, and they are also on the line-up for Denver Day of Rock.

Thanks for reading, and, again, please add your favorites below.

    Make sure your students yawp while listening to the Yawpers and doing yoga. Everyone needs some "yawp" to juxtapose the "aum"
