Cutthroats 9 @ 15th Street Tavern, Denver CO 2001-09-01

Was a big fan of Unsane so back at the end of the 90's when I heard Chris Spencer had a new band called Cutthroats 9 I was excited to check it out.  I got to see them a couple of times here in Denver at the long gone but not forgotten 15th Street Tavern.  It's not that different from what Unsane does so if your a fan of that project I think your will dig Cutthroats 9.

I pulled this out of the archive because Cutthroats 9 recently just put out a new album.  They still sound killer.  Most menacing slide guitar around.  Enjoy

Bongripper @ The Marquis, Denver CO 2014-06-21

Denver is craft beer mecca and now basically the Amsterdam of America since the legalization of recreational marijuana.  So it was fitting that one of my favorite breweries, TRVE, brought Bongripper out to Colorado for TRVE's Second Anniversary Bacchanal.

This was the Chicago doom metal groups first Colorado appearance too.   Good times. Enjoy.

The Black Keys @ The Fox, Boulder CO 2009-07-17

5 years ago if you would have asked me if the Black Keys were destined to be playing stadiums I would have said yes based only on the number of Whoooo girls that were at this show.  And that's ok.  The Black Keys deserve it.  They toured for years playing small clubs and paying their dues.  I'm glad to see them be successful.

That said there is no way you could get me to the enormo-dome to check them out these days.  I'm just going to remember them how they were.  I hate to say it but I think the fire has gone out.  It happens to the best of bands.

Moistboyz @ The Gothic Theater, Englewood CO 2014-04-01

It wasn't an April Fool's joke.  The Moistboyz were actually playing at the Gothic on April 1st.
Been wanting to see these guys forever but with Micky always busy with Ween they just never played that many shows let alone tour.  This was part of a big block of shows with the Meat Puppets.

Heavy on newer material but older classics thrown in too.  Fun show.  Enjoy.

Hank III @ The Soiled Dove, Denver CO, 2000-11-19

Pretty sure this was Hank's first time in Denver.  I believe he played up at the Little Bear in Evergreen but I missed that one.  This line up of his early touring band featured Duane Denison of Jesus Lizard.

I think I had gear or media problems that night because this is an incomplete recording of the show.
Still it's a pretty good representation of what he was doing way back in 2000.  Enjoy.

Drive-by Truckers @ 15th Street Tavern, Denver CO 2002-10-17

Man the 15th Street Tavern was a great place to see a show back in the day.  At the end of the 90's and into the early 00s it was "the" place to see up and coming bands in Denver.  I saw tons and tons of great bands there.  Including these guys, The Drive-by Truckers on their tour for Southern Rock Opera.  They play a bunch of choice cuts from that album and some songs that later ended up on other albums this night.  And some rare gems like TVA.  Looking back this was an amazing setlist. 

I got to thinking about this show recently as I have really gotten back into the DBTs recently with their amazing new release English Oceans.  I wouldn't have hesitated to say that they were one of my very favorite bands back in 2002.  Over the years they have always had quality output but like a lot of bands that go on this long there is bound to be years where the spark just isn't there. I didn't even really have very high hopes for English Oceans until I heard Cooley had written a bunch of the songs.  They are back with a spark and a fire that I think has been missing on the last couple releases.  I predict that it will be on a lot of top 10 lists at the end of 2014

Next weekend they will be playing at a much bigger venue then the 15th Street Tavern.  They have ascended to the 3000+ capacity Fillmore.  I'm bummed that I'm not going to be able to make that one.  There are at least 4 other shows going on that night in Denver that I want to see.  So tough decisions need to be made.
I am going to try to catch their instore at Twist and Shout records on the afternoon of their show here.  That will probably be as close as I'm going to get to seeing these guys in a small environment an time soon.
