American Bouldering Series National Championship

When: Feb. 24-25, 9 a.m. 2012

There's something inordinately civilized about heading out after work to catch some great local talent for free in a small theater with fine acoustics and conveniently located happy-hour specials. Such are the joys of the more-or-less monthly Showcase at Studio Bee at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., This evening's concert kicks off at 6:45 with Broken Spoke, the indie-country band profiled in these pages Dec. 8 ("God and country," AudioFile). Next up is Route 61, a group fronted by Southern California transplant BJ Estares, whose excellent musical taste — ranging from John Martyn to Furry Lewis — is reflected in his original songwriting. Closing the show is 2 Hour Delay, featuring the harmonies of four Dixie Chick-obsessed teachers from the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind. You can stay for all three and still be home by 9. — Bill Forman
