The Changing Colors have been one of our favorite local bands here at The Big Something for the last couple of years . Their debut album, Ghost of Red Mountain (see our 2009 post about it and listen to 3 songs HERE, and buy the album from Blank Tape Records HERE), a beautiful concept album based on the story of Emma Crawford (of the coffin race fame in Manitou).

The band of brothers stopped by the KRCC studios a few days ago to play a couple new songs from their untitled record in progress in advance of their show this weekend at the Triple Nickel with Laura Gibson and Constellation of Cars. (Many thanks to Conor and Ian Bourgal for dropping by and their kind indulgence in the production of the video!)

Saturday, January 15, 8:00 – 11:30 p.m.
Triple Nickel Tavern, 26 S Wahsatch Ave, Colorado Springs, (719) 477-9555
$5 Advance at the Triple Nickel/$8 at the door

    What a GREAT band!

    Their music is beautiful and their lyrics are sincere—AND they are LOCAL.

    I hope that Changing Colors will be the ‘break out’ band that we need so desperately here. Could they be the beginning of a newly inspired music scene here, in El Paso County?

    Thanks for posting them, Big Something.
