After blowing off Jazz Fest this year (horrible form for a phester), I really needed this “spacey” show at the Fox in Boulder. Milt’s been raving about Garaj Mahal for awhile now, so when I woke up with little to do this Saturday and noticed on Pollstar that they were playing in Boulder–a mere eight hour jaunt from Homey–I got in my vehicle and motored West, spur of the moment stylee. It was well worth the effort, as this first encounter with Garaj definitely set the hook. Jamie Janover also sat in with the band and we hung out with him a bit after the show. Super nice guy! As are the gentlemen from Garaj.
