Lucero @ Westword Music Showcase, Denver CO, 2007-06-16

Here is Lucero at the Westword Music Showcase playing right before Dinosaur Jr back in 2007. 
Ben Nichols even comments about how excited he is to see them.

The were on tour for the Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers album.  No horn section yet but Rick Steff is on keyboard. 

Fun setlist with some now classic tunes.  Tears Don't Matter Much is a barn burner!!

Good tight rock n roll from these road dogs on this evening.  And early enough to ensure that the band wasn't as loose as they might have been at a late night show during this era. 

Great to see that 10 years on from this show they are bigger than ever and still writing fantastic rock n roll songs.  Cheers to Lucero.

Dinosaur Jr @ Westword Music Showcase, Denver CO, 2007-06-16

Ran across a DVD the other day that had this and a couple other sets that I had recorded back in 2007 at the Westword Music Showcase.  The sounded really nice so I figured I would get them posted.

This was a couple years after they are reunited and were on tour for their first new album in years.  Beyond that came out on Fat Possum.

Sounds really nice.  Enjoy.

Sacred Reich @ Marquis Theater, Denver CO 2017-09-18

I love thrash metal and all the bands the came out of that mid to late 80s era.  Sacred Reich quickly became one of my favorites once I heard them.  Saw them for the first time on the Surf Nicaragua tour in 1989.  Caught them again multiple times.

One very memorable show they headlined over Forbidden and believe it or not Faith No More.  The Real Thing had just come out and no one had quite caught on yet.  The metal crowd did not give them a warm reception. 

Another time with amazing Seattle thrashers Forced Entry and Obituary on their Slowly We Rot tour.  Amazing show That was the beginning of the 90s and Grunge came in and metal waned quite a bit and the thrash revolution was over.

It has made a resurgence in the last decade though so I was excited to see that Sacred Reich was touring again and had a Denver date.

Crowd was full of old metal head dudes just as I expected and a good time was had by all.  Like the fan base the band was looking a little older as well but still sounded great.  They had played a bunch of dates in Europe just prior to this so they were road tight.

I think this turned out pretty nice.  Enjoy.

Secret Chiefs 3 @ Ogden Theater, Denver CO, 2017-09-23

Spectacular opening set from Secret Chiefs 3.  I think I was even more excited to see these guys than Dead Cross.  In my mind it was a co headlining show.  Both bands were power houses.

Hopefully we will get to see SC3 out on the road again soon.  It had been awhile since they had come though last.  Don't pass up a chance to catch them live if they come near you.

Dead Cross @ Ogden Theater, Denver CO, 2017-09-23

Been following the development of Dead Cross for awhile now.  Well before Mike Patton got involved.  I heard a recording of one of their early shows with the original vocalist Gabe Serbian and was instantly intrigued.  Was looking forward to a studio release.

When I heard Gabe left and Mike Patton had stepped into the vocalist position I was a little surprised but certainly not bummed.  I'm a fan of pretty much anything Mr. Patton does.

So when the announced a tour with Secret Chiefs 3 as support I knew that it was going to be a not to be missed show.  That was a totally correct assessment. 

Here is the show from the Ogden Theater in Denver along with the sound check.

I'll be getting the Secret Chiefs 3 show up soon.  Enjoy.

Earthless @ The Marquis, Denver CO, 2017-09-02

So many bands played at Psycho Vegas that it was impossible to catch them all.  Sometimes it was a bummer since I will probably never get another chance to see The Rods for instance.  But Earthless was one of the bands that I knew was coming to Denver shortly after.  It made it easier to miss them in Vegas.

Earthless delivered a smoking set and even gave the enthusiastic crowd and encore.  Great show.

If you get a change to catch these dudes live do it.  The don't get out that often.
Go buy their records too.

Slo Burn @ Psycho Vegas, Las Vegas NV, 2017-08-18

Psycho Vegas 2017 had a killer line up but the fact Slo Burn was on the bill sealed the deal for me.

Slo Burn's only official release came out in 1997 and they played some shows back then but not enough for me to ever have a chance to see them.  They lay dormant mostly since then.  Never thought I would ever get a chance either.  So I was pretty stoked to hear that they were active again.

They hit Vegas after playing a string of dates over in Europe so we got them road tight and rocking.  Their set more than met my expectations.  So good.

Had some issues with my normal gear so in a last ditch effort to capture Slo Burn's set I just used my M10's internal mics.  Not hoping for anything worthwhile.  I figured I was wasting my time but just in-case I hit record and let it roll.  So happy I did.  This is certainly not the best recording I've ever made but it turned out surprisingly well.  Totally listenable and enjoyable.
