America

When: Fri., Feb. 28 2014

It's been four decades since Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" was shoved from the top of the pop charts by what was widely assumed to be another Neil Young single. With its soft-rock sound and less-than-linear lyrics, "A Horse with no Name" remains America's signature song. It was followed by a string of hits like "Ventura Highway," "Sister Golden Hair" and their altogether lamentable "Muskrat Love" cover. America actually remains an exceptional live band these days, which makes tonight's show at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com) much more promising than your typical classic-pop nostalgia trip. Showtime is 8, and tickets start at $38.50. — Bill Forman
