Welcome, my loves, to a special edition “Jumping on the Bandwagon” Denver’s Most Fuckable Rockstar!!!
This past weekend, for those of you who live in a cave, under a rock, with the lights out and your fingers in your ears, was the Underground Music Showcase. It’s quickly becoming the South By Southwest of Denver, a showcasing of the awesome underground music that this city has to offer. Also, you can get really hammered because all the venues are in walking distance of each other.
So, me and JB, being the rawkstars that we are, were there ‘til the bitter end, folks, the BITTER END. And the absolute last show of the festival this year was the number one voted musician for the UMS. A musician who plays THE CELLO. How awesome is that?
Band: Ian Cooke Band
Status: Unsigned. (This is not a euphemism.)
Why He’s This Week’s Most Fuckable Rockstar: Like I said above, I completely recognize that I’m jumping on the bandwagon here. I mean, this guy has been like a fixture in the local music scene for a LONG time, and I’m just now getting around to seeing his pure and total fuckability. My apologies for the latecoming, Ian.
His music is rocky, folky, classical, sad, and eccentric, all at once. His band is well rehearsed and they all look like they have excellent hygiene. It’s a band you can take home to mom, but that you still find fascinating.
Probable Lovemaking Style: They call it forlorn folk rock. So, poetic lovemaking might be expected. And did I mention he plays the fucking CELLO?!?! Strong hands. Strong hands.
Possible Drawbacks: Throughout musical history, the cello has been compared to a woman. (seriously, there are, like, sonnets and shit written about that instrument). So if you get with Ian, you might have some competition in the form of a curvy wooden box with a soothing voice.
Where You Can Find Him: Ian plays with full band on July 29th at the Fox Theater for the Boulder release party of their new CD. They also play July 31st at the Hi Dive for the Denver release. See you there, hipsters!!
