Mike Watt and The Secondmen @ Lion's Lair, Denver CO 2016-12-03




It was a special treat to get to see Mike Watt and the Secondmen play two nights in a row at the Lion's Lair.  I've seen Watt play with the Stooges one time and I saw him open up for Primus at Redrocks way back in the 90s so it had been awhile.  Was excited to see in the intimate confines of the Lair.

Him and the boys tore through a whole mess of Minutemen songs and some choice covers.
Including Fun House!!

I went to both nights but I totally botched my recordings from Friday so this is all I got.  Sounds pretty good I think.  Includes a healthy does of Lion's Lair atmosphere.  Enjoy.

Ghoul @ Denver Black Sky fest 2013, Englewood CO 2013-12-14









Back to some Denver Black Sky recordings.  This time the mutants that come from Creepsylvania.

GHOUL!!!!   These guys are a lot of fun live.  Ridiculous in the best possible way.  This show was towards the end of the tours for Transmission Zero.  So there are a bunch of songs from that.

Enjoy

Mantar @ Hi-Dive, Denver CO, 2016-09-24




Been wanting to catch these guys live since I first heard their album Death By Burning back in 2014. When I heard they were coming with Colbalt I knew I had to check it out.

For two guys they sure create a ton of aural ugliness.  So damn good.  Kind of Melvinsish but with a more metal edge.  Catch them live if you get a chance.

As always go see live music and support travelling musicians by buying shit from them.

Enjoy.

Clutch @ Boulder Theatre, Boulder CO, 2016-10-18






Here is a little break from the Black Sky posts.  Spur of the moment I got talking into going to see Clutch in Boulder last week.  Not that it took a lot of persuading.  I dig Clutch a lot and have been catching them regularly since the 90s. Great band!

These guys always deliver live and they also mix it up every night with a different set list.  Major props to them for that.  So many bands go on tour and play the same set in every town.

The Boulder Theatre is kind of a boomy sounding room with it's super high ceiling but I think this turned out really nice.  Enjoy.

Power Trip @ Denver Black Sky fest 2013, Englewood CO 2013-12-14




Another set from Denver Black Sky 2013.  This time another crossover thrash band.  Power Trip from Dallas Texas.  These dudes kick major ass.  Always a treat to see them play.

Revisiting all these Black Sky bands is really getting me stoked for the 2016 Black Sky in December.
