Critic's Choice

Denver band The Fifth Utility has stayed somewhat under the radar with their do-it-yourself mentality (they sold CDs by donation, for instance). Now comes the band's second album, Ultra Nylon Life of Ease, a sprawling, atmospheric disc that bristles with experimental energy atop great songwriting. Hear more at a CD-release party on Friday at the Gothic Theatre, 3263 South Broadway. Doors open at 8 p.m.; tickets, $7. Proceeds benefit Art Reach and the North Metro Task Force. Information: 303-380-2333 or www.ticket
