Cannibal Corpse @ Oriental Theater, Denver CO, 2019-03-01

Capital B Brutal death metal show on Friday.  Decibel Magazine's annual tour has a ridiculously stacked line up this year.  The Denver stop featured Blood Incantation, Necrot, Morbid Angel and the mighty Cannibal Corpse.  Hands down one of the very best meal packages I have ever seen.  Every band slayed.  So much fun.  Great crowd too.

I'm enjoying seeing shows at the Oriental lately.  They have really fixed it up and gave the sound system a much needed boast.  Great room. 

Go see live music.  Buy merch direct from the band and help keep art alive.

Yawning Man @ Hi Dive, Denver CO, 2019-01-25

Still kicking myself for missing Fatso Jetson at the Hi Dive last year.  No good excuse.  When I saw Mario Lalli was bringing Yawning Man out on tour I knew I didn't want to miss that.

They did not disappoint.  Killer set for the crowd of faithful. 

If you ever get a chance to see any of Mario's bands don't miss it.

Reverend Beat-Man & Sister Nicole Izobel Garcia @ Pipers Opera House, Virginia City NV, 2018-04-15

Slovenly Records / Sticker Guy's Debauch-A-Reno Fest 2018 was a ton of fun.  Saw a bunch of killer bands.  Bought some great records.  Had a fun time bopping around Reno.

Big treat for me was the chance to get to see Reverend Beat-Man twice.  I think the last time he rolled through Denver was 2010ish.  He doesn't make it over to the USA very often.  This time he brought his partner in crime Sister Nicole Izobel Garcia. 

This show was a festival wind down show South of Reno in the mountains in the town of Virginia City.  An old mining town with an old opera house and lots of character.  And characters.

Short but sweet set.  Enjoy.

DTK-MC5 @ Bluebird Theater, Denver CO, 2004-07-09

I just finished reading Wayne Kramer's fabulous autobiography The Hard Stuff and was inspired to pull this recording out of the archive to check it out.  I had kinda forgotten about it.  I recalled that night as being a bit of a mess and not that great.

For those of you not familiar with this band.  Wayne Kramer wanted to pay tribute to his friends/band members from the MC5 that had passed. Fred "Sonic" Smith and Rob Tyner.  Original MC5 members Dennis Thompson and Michael Davis played drums and bass.  Various second guitarists and vocalists joined for the multiple legs of this tour.  This Denver show had Evan Dando (Lemonheads) and Mark Arm (Mudhoney) handling vocals and Marshall Crenshaw filled out the lineup as the 2nd guitarist.

Dando wasn't well behaved on this tour and was eventually fired in Japan.  I recall not being impressed by him at this show and Mark Arm carrying the weight of the performance.

What I had also forgotten was that I had gotten a soundboard recording that night.  Listening back now Dando wasn't as terrible as I remembered.  Pretty great sound on this.  I sweetened up the EQ a bit.  Enjoy.

The Meteors @ Benders Tavern, Denver CO 2006-08-09

A little blast from the past back when The Meteors came to Denver as part of their very small US tour in 2006.  We were one of around 5 dates total.  So this was a treat.  The Meteors just never came over to the US very much. 

It's been awhile but I recall that it wasn't a large turnout but it was a very enthusiastic crowd.

Miss seeing shows at Benders it was always a fun time.  The vocals are a bit low on this but I think overall it sounds really nice.  Enjoy.

Minus The Bear @ Fox Theater, Boulder CO, 2005-11-14

With the news of Minus The Bear calling it quits.  I remembered that I had a really nice recording of them from way back at the Fox Theater in Boulder.  One of my favorite sounding rooms in Colorado.

To be honest I went to this show to see Big Business first and foremost but did enjoy Minus The Bear too.    Figured I would share this so any long time fans of the band could get a taste of their early live work.  Enjoy.

Godflesh @ Oriental Theater, Denver CO, 2018-12-07

The first & last  time I saw Godflesh they were part of the 1991 Grindcrusher tour at the Gothic in Englewood CO.  With freaking Napalm Death and Nocturnus!!!!  Took my first wife on one of our early dates.  She was a good sport about it.

I recall at that show a fairly large vocal group of the crowd was not into what Godflesh was laying down.  Fingers in the air.  Some yelling.  Yet the pummeling continued because the band didn't care.  It was a great spectacle.  Always wanted to see them again over the years and it just didn't happen. 

I came close this last summer at the Psycho Vegas fest.  But I already knew they were coming to Denver later in the year and chose a meal and some downtime instead.

Fantastic show at the Oriental Theater.  Loud!!!  Amazing setlist.  Enjoy.
