  • 16-year-old guitar phenom rocks Little Bear

    Young Austin and No Difference, a Colorado Springs-based band that stole the show at last year’s Big Chili Cook-off, returned to Evergreen and performed for a growing local fan base on Jan. 27 at the Little Bear.

    The three-man band is making a name for itself as a rockin’ blues phenomenon primarily because of front man and guitarist Austin Young. At 16, Austin has been playing guitar for just four years. The band performs half originals, half covers — of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Muddy Waters.

  • Laughs arrive at StageDoor in ‘Gone With the Wind’ spoof

    Once they have acquired the skills of their trade, artists set out on a path to discover the subject matter that stirs their artistic souls.
