Old 97s @ Fox Theatre, Boulder CO, 2001-10-05

I was a bit late to the Old 97s party.  I remember hearing their song 'Salome' on Radio 1190 in the late 90s and loving it.  I was just starting to dig into bands around then.  Recall picking up Too Far To Care or maybe Fight Songs soon after.  Been a fan ever since.

Did see them live until the tours for the Satellite Rides album.  The first time I attempted to catch them was at Tulagi in March of 2001.  Due to completely avoidable events in retrospect I missed all of their set except for the encore.  Which was amazing.

So I think this set from October of 2001 is my first complete show.  90+ minute set and tons of great songs.  I always appreciated how they would mix it up night after night.  And they have so many good songs no way they can play them all.

'The Other Shoe" is eliminated from this recording because I went to take a piss and get a drink.
There was an initial encore break after 'Big Brown Eyes' but I used that opportunity to swap out minidiscs so there is no recorded break in that place.

I know I traded this out on CDR back at the start of the aughts.  This version has all of me yelling out "Time Bomb!!" eliminated.  Some other minor edits and tweaks.  I consider this an upgrade to that CDR version.

Snapcase @ Adams County Fairgrounds, Brighton CO, 2000-07-09

How about some more 2000 Warped Tour.  I only got a handful of set that here.  I think again not based on desire to record but limits on physical media.  I only had so many blank mini discs.  So I had to pick and choose.   A few post back I put up the Lunachicks set.

Today how about Snapcase!!  I have always been sort of a hardcore tourist.  I like a lot of it especially the more metal or crossover sounds.  Snapcase always fit that bill for me.  They are heavy and dissonant while being catchy.  Also not draped in all the tough guy trappings that hardcore often has.

Vocals are pretty clear on this.  Like I've said before recording outdoors can be tricky.  Music is abit phasey here and there.  Some of that is the weather and some of that is be dodging what I recall was a giant mosh pit.  Ah memories.  Enjoy

Tomahawk @ Ogden Theatre, Denver CO, 2001-11-28

Here is a Tomahawk show from 2001.  Mike Patton was a busy guy after Faith No More broke up.  He started Fantomas and recorded and album and toured behind it in 1999.  Not long after that he met Duane Denison from Jesus Lizard and they started a corroboration on what became Tomahawk.  They were joined but John Stanier from Helmet and Kevin Rutmanis from Cows & Melvins.  Quite a paring of underground alternative music dudes.  

I've been a big Patton fan since he came on my radar through FNM.  The band roster for Tomahawk certainly peaked my interest.  I was not disappointed when I heard their debut 2001 album.  So of course catching them on tour was a no brainer.

DJ Swamp opened up which was neat I guess.  What happened to that guy?  The crowd was there to see Tomahawk though.  I can't recall if there wasn't a positive reaction from the crowd but we only got a 47 minute set with no encores.  According to other cities got encores with 2 or 3 songs.  

Patton doesn't usually talk a whole lot but on this night way before marijuana was legalized he goes on a "are you high Denver"  spiel.   Then before the last song he asks if the crowd is having a good time.  Then suggest that perhaps they should go see System Of A Down next door (at the Fillmore), then he says "excuse me fuck them".  Then he says 'Slayer is coming next door!!"  the crowd cheers " yeah yeah yeah you're 10 years too late Denver".  And suggests Slayer with out Dave Lombardo is not as good. 

There has been talk for years of another Tomahawk album seeing the light of day.  I would be into that.
Until then enjoy this 2001 set.

The Road Kings @ Fox Theatre, Boulder CO, 1999-11-16

My entry into Jesse Dayton fandom had to have begun with his involvement with the band Supersuckers.  He played on their country album Must've Been High.  Not long after I heard that album I picked up his first solo country album Raisin' Cain.  

Outlaw country music of this sort was a staple in my house growing up.  Of course since my Mom liked it I had to rebel and get into all of the 80's rock and metal.  But I had heard all of those Waylon and Willie records and enjoyed them until I thought I was too cool.   So the music Jesse was making on that album was right up my alley while I was coming back around to those sounds.

He didn't get out of Texas much so I didn't see him with his country band until 2001.  I did catch him with his rockabilly band Road Kings when the opened up for Mike Ness at the Fox in Boulder Colorado.  Jesse is a dam fine guitar player so no mater what music style he is playing it's kick ass.

Now I don't think I could choose which I like better even.  I celebrate the man's entire catalog.

Lunachicks @ Adams County Fairgrounds, Brighton CO, 2000-07-09

This was the first year they held the Warped Tour at the Adams County Fairgrounds.  The year before it had been held in the parking lot of the original Mile High stadium in Denver.  I lived up in the Northern burbs back then so I was stoked that I could ride my bike to the show.

I won 6 tickets to this Warped tour because I knew that the main guy in Flogging Molly had been the singer for 80s hard rock band Fastway.  I gave 3 away to friends and kept 1 for myself.  Then I gave the others away to people waiting in line that I deemed had cool band shirts on.

The poster has Green Day listed but I'm pretty sure they didn't play on this date.  Neither did the Supersuckers.  Because I for sure would have made an effort to record both of those sets and I only have recordings of Lunachicks, Snapcase, NOFX, Long Beach Dub Allstars, The Donnas, & T.S.O.L.

I must have had a limited number of blank minidiscs because in retrospect I would have recorded a bunch of the other bands too.  I've already posted the NOFX set from this day.  Snapcase is going up soon.

This was either the last or one of the last Lunachicks shows before they went on a long hiatus.  They talk about this being their last Warped Tour show.   So I count myself lucky to have gotten to see them.  They had scheduled at reunion show for 2020 but then the pandemic has postponed that to a later date.

Recording outside is always a challenge.  Especially at a Warped tour like situation with people moshing to anything and everything.  This one sounds pretty good.  The vocals are clear but music is a little phased out in placed due to the wind.  Fun short set though.  A bunch of classic Lunachicks songs and a Cars cover thrown in for good measure.

Jesse Malin @ Fox Theatre, Boulder CO, 2003-09-06

Here is a set from Jesse Malin.  He was a member of NYC band D-Generation in the 90s.  After that had run it's course he started putting out solo albums.  This show in Boulder Colorado was part of his touring for his 2002 album The Fine Art Of Self Destruction.

Jesse is joined for this set by keyboardist extraordinaire Joe McGinty.  Big sound from just the two of them.  Mostly songs from Jesse's first album and a Springsteen cover.  Jesse tells a few stories to set up the songs along the way too.   Fun short set.  This was opening for the New Amsterdam's

Live At The 15th Street Tavern 1998-2004

Live at the 15th Street Tavern

A warts and all collection of recordings I made at the 15th St
over the years from 1998 - 2004.  All of these are my recordings except the 1998 Zeke show and the 2002 Orange Goblin show.  I don't have good info on who captured those.

I saw a ton of shows at the 15th Street Tavern over the years.  Way more than I made recordings of.  I managed to capture 35 individual sets from 27 different bands.  Pretty good haul.

It was kind of a dump and the floor was so sticky that it would pull your shoe off if you weren't careful.  The low stage and low ceiling made it a fantastic place to see some loud music though.

My favorite ever show had to have been seeing Queens Of The Stone Age there in 1999.  Right when they were getting going.  Amazing shows from Murder City Devils, Zeke too.

Sound quality is a bit all over the place.  All of it is listenable though.  Like I said warts and all presented in chronological order.
