Rawk-tober starts NOW!

5 opportunities to see one of our live shows up and down the front range this month...new EP release just about ready to drop...hope to be seeing y'all soon!


Alreighty, my lovelies...I see an end to the cold grip of winter....not before a few bone-chilling spells yet, but all portents suggest sunnier tidings ahead - join us for some of the great shows we have lined up for spring, including Shine in Boulder, Skylark Loung and Hi Dive Denver, D Note Arvada, Jamestown Mercantile and OSkars in Longmont on Earth Day - you can always find loving cloven-toed merriment afoot with idlewhile band in the house!

feeling a chill yet?

Winter is ALMOST here! Idlewhile band is ready to warm you up whenever we get the chance to play together in music - keep up with our show schedule right here on Reverb Nation, or follow us on Facebook - but whatever you do, let's make merry together, and make 2012 something groovy! That's right, it could all end in just a few months - what are your predictions? We plan on being around, but 'just in case,' we have some end-of-the-year engagements, as well as radio, live performances and CD release parties already in the works! Come warm up by the glow of the tube amps at Cafe Sole in Boulder Saturday December 17th, or catch us right before the New Year festivities as the idlewhile Quintet at Bittersweet coffee in Louisville. And most importantly, remember to take time to tell those you love how you feel - life is precious! Be Blessed, my people.

Colorado fall is the favorite

hello my lovely cloven-hoofs, it is once again THE BEST time of the year, and the perfect time to experience some idlewhile shiny darkness! W have had busy and wonderful October with shows in Boulder, Arvada and Longmont, and we're looking forward to November, with new shows in Boulder, Denver and Longmont - come soak up some indie hill-stomp and say howdy - we'd love to see you there!

Burning Down the new Haunts

This summer, idlewhile had such a great time ringing in our 1 year birthday and playing a bunch of new venues, with new friends and musical colleagues...could it get ANY better? Well...yes, as a matter of fact, we closed our summer schedule with a birthday party show for Giselle at the Jamestown Mercantile! If you were there, you know what a hoot it was, and the fine people at Mercantile have asked us to come back 'right quik'...stay tuned for more on that. In the meanwhile, we have a full roster of fall shows in the boulder county and north metro area - PLEASE stop in and say HI!

be blessed!


Upcoming shows to ring in summer!

Hey wow- to celebrate summer and our 1st birthday (and just to have a good time) idlewhile will be performing a few shows in Boulder and Louisville, with another trips to the Mercury Cafe in Denver. Couldn't be more excited to be exploring song-craft with crew idlewhile and you!


idlewhile takes Denver - This Saturday!

Well, in the 9 months since we put together the idlewhile band, we've learned a lot, played a lot, met a ton of nice people, and have developed some pretty good original songs - now we come for you, Denver!

Join us Saturday night at the legendary Mercury Cafe on the edge of LoDo for some indie-hee-haw vibes and a few surprises too!

We'll have CDs and other schwag for sale, and the party starts at 10 PM!

Fantastic Show at Nissi's

Wow, sometimes things just work out nice, and idlewhile at Nissi's! Few rooms we've played have offered the same level of sound quality and control; it was really a treat to work with Adam on engineering he made it so easy!

We heard from you that the online tix sales made it a breeze to get your reserved seat, and sure that attributed to the full house - thank you for making our night!

Can't wait to get back! Hope to see YOU there next time!

much love,
