The ten best concerts this weekend: Nov. 23-25

9. H*WOOD (CD RELEASE) @ SUMMIT MUSIC HALL | FRI, 11/23/12
Brandon and Collin Bordeaux have been making music together since they were kids. The two brothers, better known in local hip-hop circles as H*Wood and Kid Vegas, respectively, act as each other's business partner, musical critic, marketing director and confidant. Brandon, who's returned home after four years in Los Angeles, is celebrating the release of his new album, First Light. It's the first release for the Denver native since he left Darkchild Records, the imprint run by his former manager, Rodney Jerkins. From the sounds of the album's genre-bending tracks, which infuse EDM with soul and hip-hop, H*Wood has clearly grown since the days of "Could It Be You (Punk Rock Chick)." He burst onto the scene with that single a couple of years ago, and at the time, many would have filed his music under "pop." But he thinks it's more complex than that. "I'm not really pop," he says. "I've always been fascinated with EDM, and over the last few years, I have learned far more about it. Also, just taking time to study live music, which I love."
