We hope you will agree that KRCC presented some truly memorable music underneath the Colorado Avenue Bridge during the past thirteen years.  Every summer since 2006, KRCC's Blues Under the Bridge Festival featured artists the likes of Koko Taylor, Robert Belfour, Charlie Musselwhite, the Holmes Brothers, Bettye LaVette, Los Lobos, Booker T. Jones, Chris Thomas King and the Blind Boys of Alabama, along with local musicians like John-Alex Mason, Jake Loggins, Grant Sabin, Hazel Miller, Mike Clark and Sugar Sounds, the Informants, Austin Young, and Jeremy Vasquez. 

The festival became a regular showcase for authentic blues music in a gritty urban setting - under a bridge and in front of the Union Pacific - Rio Grande railroad tracks in downtown Colorado Springs. It also happened to be a wonderful coincidence that the venue under the Colorado Avenue Bridge was only a stone's through away from where artists like Billie Holiday, Muddy Waters, Louis Armstrong, and Etta James had performed between 1948 and 1975 at Fannie Mae Duncan's Cotton Club.

Jeff Tweedy, frontman for Chicago's beloved Wilco, has released his first solo album of original music. WARM, out now, is a stripped-down version of Tweedy's signature alt-rock sound.

The 11-track album goes from bright to dark and all shades in between. Tweedy tackles stories of his troubled childhood in Belleville, Ill., soundtracks his own struggles with drug addiction and delivers it all with twang and the appropriate dash of practical humor.

This is the third single Beck has released this summer. In June he released the woozy, chopped-up cut "Defriended." He followed in July with the lush and hazy "I Won't Be Long." His third and final single in the trilogy is called "Gimme." None of the singles will be on Beck's next, and as yet unnamed, full-length record, due out sometime before the end of the year.

Hear it this morning on the Music Mix with Vicky Gregor.
