Fort Collins’ best concert this weekend

The best in show this weekend, and I’m not talking about any purebred dogs, is Brandi Carlile with Blitzen Trapper at the Lincoln Center Sunday.

Carlile is an alternative folk singer-songwriter that incorporates a soulful voice with a beat that is sure to bring warmth to a cold autumn night. Carlile began singing in Seattle clubs and received Seattle’s City of Music Breakthrough Award in 2010. Her newest EP, Bear Creek, was released this year.


Blitzen Trapper, an experimental country-folk band, will be joining Carlile in one of their last stops on their tour before heading back to the Pacific Northwest to record a new album. Blitzen Trapper infuses story telling lyrics with a catchy almost-Shins-influenced style. One of my favorites, “Black River Killer” from their 2008 album Furr, sympathetically tells a story of a killer making his rounds to and from jail.
