Deke Dickerson - Guitar Geek Show @ Viva Las Vegas, Las Vegas 2014-04-04

I'm a rockabilly tourist for sure.  I like the music but I'm not really familiar with the current rockabilly scene.
But it's all basically Rock N Roll so I can hang.  But it was telling that I was most excited to see The Sonics at Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly fest this year.  The other thing I was stoked on was checking out Deke Dickerson's Guitar Geek show.

Deke lined the stage with all kinds of cool guitars and always brings out a bunch of hot pickers.  This year was no exception.  

Unfortunately this is an incomplete recording of the event.  While at the fest a friend turned me onto Bloodshot Bill and we bounced early from this show right after Bill played to make sure we got into the small venue he was playing at later in the night.  So as an added bonus to the most of the Guitar Geek show I tacked on Bloodshot Bill's short set at Brendan's Pub a little bit later.

Really happy with how this turned out and I hope you enjoy the tunes.

Sleep @ The Ogden, Denver CO 2015-04-20

Sleep rolled into Denver a couple of weeks back and played a great long and loud set.

They didn't play until after midnight so that they could play in two different cities on 4/20.
The played Seattle latter on that Monday.

Nice mix of the "hits" and the relatively new song The Clarity.

Fun smokey show.  Enjoy

Electric Wizard @ The Summit Music Hall, Denver CO 2015-04-10

So stoked that Electric Wizard was coming to Denver on one of the very few dates that they played across the USA this April.  They don't make it over the pond very often so I knew I had to check it out.

Kinda went in with pretty low expectations but I was blown away.  Electric Wizard absolutely kills it live.

Pretty fucking loud but I happy with how this turned out.  Enjoy.

The Soncis @ The Orleans, Las Vegas NV, 2015-04-04

Even though the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender is mostly focused on well rockabilly there is some crossover since it's all basically Rock N Roll.  So I guess that is why it made Sense for the Sonics to be on the bill.  Frankly they were the act I was most excited to see over the weekend.

In one of the free Vegas rags I read an interview with one of the band members who when asked if it was hard to pick up where they left off after so many years of not playing music, said something to the effect of, "Well we were never great musicians to begin with so it was pretty easy to start hacking it out again"

True to his word these guys are not virtuoso's on their instruments but they have a hell of a good time and are super fun to watch.  Even if the set was a little short they played all the songs I was hoping to hear.

Also they have a brand new album out so go buy if you a fan.  It's pretty darn good.

This show was outdoors in the parking lot and it was a little bit windy.  It didn't effect the recording too much but you can tell it's outside.  Still a fun listen.  Enjoy.

Judas Priest @ Rainbow Music Hall, Denver CO 1980-06-25

Here is a little piece of Denver metal history.  Judas Priest's first ever appearance in the Mile High City back in 1980 on the British Steel tour.

No idea about the history or origin of this recording but I've seen it posted around a few other places on teh web.  Really nice sounding board recording.  Amazing set list too.  Check this one out for sure.

Morrissey @ The C.U. Field House, Boulder CO 1992-10-01

This isn't one of my recordings.  I did pull this out of my archive but I would file this under liberated bootleg.  Not that those really exist anymore.  With the exception of vinyl boots.  I still see lots of those.  But way back in the early 90's people would pay a  pretty penny for these releases from Italian labels.  This show was on a release called "I'm a Poet (Colorado)".

The only information says that it's a soundboard and it has those qualities.  Really nice sounding recording though and since I like to share Colorado stuff I though I would post this up.  Enjoy.
