The Magic Beans Bring the Heat for their Hometown Celebration [Photos/Recap]

first_imgThe Magic Beans came out of the gates hot last night for their triumphant return to the historic Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado. The Boulder locals had the honor of hosting an unforgettable Saturday night throwdown alongside many incredible acts this month in celebration of the Fox Theatre’s 25th anniversary. For The Magic Beans, The Fox feels like home, and that energy and vibe resonated throughout the crowd over the course of the evening.The groovy Portland-based trio, Yak Attack, started the night off right, entertaining the crowd with synthy-dance beats and preparing to welcome the main event of the evening. The Magic Beans developed a connection with Yak Attack while out on tour, and have since developed an admiration for the trio, recently inviting them to play at the Bean’s festival, Beanstalk Music and Arts Festival this upcoming June.As the Magic Beans walked on stage at 10:15 sharp, the entire crowd erupted, fueling a fire that was blazing on all night long. Former Magic Beans drummer Will Trask (Great American Taxi, The Runnikine) accompanied the band on percussion the entirety of the evening. As the boys discussed prior to the show, they wanted to bring the FUNK! An extended version of a Magic Bean’s favorite, “Lazer Lady,” kicked off the evening in style, and the band quickly found their sound and started bringing the jams. The night was full of both new and old material, highlighted by an enormous “Kid Rocket,” “Five Points,” and “Lost and Found” to name a few.With an entire half-hour to utilize for encore, the Beans did what they do best; they conquered. Original tune “Casino Cabaret” highlighted the incredible talent that the Beans possess across the board. Bassist Chris Duffy threw down a monstrous, crunchy solo, before the band threw a curveball out of left field. The band decided that a cover of Ween’s “Monique the Freak” would be the best note to end the show on, and a sentiment that was clearly shared by the crowd. Keyboardist Casey Russell assisted on vocals with a Talk-box effect, trading licks back and forth with guitarist Scott Hachey until 1:30 on the dot. To say the boys are back in town would be an understatement!
