The Murder City Devils @ The Bluebird Theater, Denver CO 2001-10-21




I was a huge fan of the Murder City Devils from the first note of music that I heard.  I caught them every time they rolled through Denver back in the day.  This show was one of what they called their last tour ever.  I was bummed to say the least.  They were just getting going as a band I though.

Well the hiatus only lasted a few years.  They have never returned to be the road dogs that they once were but they started playing shows here and there and have released a 7" and a brand new album in recent years.

Still though no Denver shows. Until their return to the mile high city next week.  Maybe it's perfect that they haven't hit Denver for 13 years.  I'm beyond psyched.

If you were a fan back in the day and didn't know they were still at it.  Do your self a favor and check out their brand new album.

They keep this fairly updated with news.

I'm not sure why I never transferred this recording.  But in anticipation of their show on Monday the 10th at the Gothic I wanted to revist the very last time I saw the band.  Pretty nice sounding I think.  Enjoy

Willie Nelson @ Ebbets Field, Denver CO 1975-09-02


Ebbets Field was a small downtown Denver club that hosted an amazing array of talent during it's existence.
Everyone from J.J. Cale, Ry Cooder, Dr. John, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Peter Frampton, Dan Hicks, Kraftwerk, Little Feat, Taj Mahal, Don McLean, John Prine, Bob Seger, Robin Trower, Tom Waits, Jerry Jeff Walker, Muddy Waters, and many others graced it stage.

They also recorded and radio broadcast many of the shows that went on there.  Like this classic Wille Nelson and Family show.  I received this show back in the early 00s at the height of CDR trading.
Been meaning to share it for a while now.  Willie's guitarist Jody Payne leads the band through a couple of warm up numbers before Willie comes on and knocks it out of the park.  Enjoy.

I don't find me self playing my grindcore records much at home but I love love love me some live grindcore.
I caught Humming Bird of Death at the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed.  They totally bring it live.  Bar Bar is a fun place to see stuff like this.  Good times.

Check out the band and their stuff here.  Support independent musicians any chance you get.

Eddie and the Hot Rods @ The Hi Dive Denver, CO (USA) - 2014-10-16


People forget that a lot of the first "punk rock" albums were all on major labels.  Eddie and the Hot Rods were on Island Records.  Future home of U2 and many others.  While a real undercurrent of new and fresh music was happening some of it was just rock and roll repackaged.  This isn't a dig on EATHR.  They were/are a great rock n roll band.  I think the punk label scared people away.  These guys should have been way bigger.

They are another band that barely ever gets over to the USA so when I heard they were going to tour over here I knew I need to check it out.

I think this recording turned out really nice.  The Hi Dive is quickly becoming my favorite sounding room in Denver.  Enjoy.

Throw Rag @ The Clubhouse, Tempe AZ, 2004-02-05








Throw Rag just killed in in the early 00s.  I loved seeing them come to town and would always go check them out.  Sometimes to just see them open other bands and then split.  I even drove down to Tempe AZ one time to see them play with one of my other favorite bands Drag The River.

I'm not sure why I had never transferred this awesome sounding soundboard recording before.  First time sharing this anywhere.  Only took a decade.

Jacko's crowd participation wash board schtick goes on for a really long time at this show.  I split it out to it's own separate track.

Enjoy!

Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats @ The Marquis, Denver CO 2014-10-03




Big time buzz on this band at the moment.  I've been hearing the hype in metal media and my metal friend circles for quite some time now.  They have played a few one off shows in the states but this short 15 date tour is really their first time touring the USA.  They have been selling out all the shows too it seems.

Next time I predict they will be playing much bigger venues.  One big indicator of that for me was the number of women in the crowd.  It wasn't the typical sausage fest that most metal shows are. Also their sound is more akin to say Queens Of The Stone Age then Electric Wizard. Creepier lyrics then QOTSA though.

I had heard both of the albums they have released at this point and while I liked therm I wasn't blown away.
Seeing them live really though really clinched it.  These guys really deliver the goods.  Check them out if you ever get chance.

Super happy with how the recording turned out.
Hope you enjoy it.
