Lucero @ The Gothic, Englewood, CO 2006-10-21


Here is a really nice sounding Lucero show from what might have been the height of my fandom.  I was obsessed with this band at the time.  I'm still a big fan but my fandom has cooled off a little bit.  This was on the tour for Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers so it's pre horns and that old familiar twang was still intact for the most part.  Not bagging on what they have evolved into.  They are still an amazing band.

Added bonus in addition to the Gothic show is a Ben Nichols solo set from Independent Records earlier in the day.  I had forgotten how great that one sounded.  Surprised I hadn't shared it before now.

As always go support the bands you love by seeing them live and giving them your money.
They are working hard for you.  They are coming back to Colorado for a 3 night stand at the Gothic for a New Year celebration.  It's going to be a barn burner.

Stray Cats @ CSU Ballroom, Ft Collins 1991-11-20

Here is a fun one.  Stray Cat live in Fort Collins at the C.S.U. Ballroom back in 1991.

No idea who recorded this one but it must have made the rounds in the tape trading world back in the day because I've seen it on a few Stray Cat's collectors lists.

I transferred it off of a cassette for a friend a while back.  Pretty nice audience recording.  Very enjoyable listen.  Enjoy.

The Murder City Devils @ The Gothic, Englewood, CO 2014-11-10





The long awaited return of The Murder City Devils to Colorado did not disappoint.  Nice set of new stuff and the classics.  Glad to see these guys still at it.  Do yourself a favor an pick up their new album The White Ghost Has Blood on Its Hands Again.  Well worth the purchase in my opinion.

Usually the Gothic sounds pretty great but I wasn't in love with the sound on this night.  Seemed like they went for loud for loud sake and sacrificed the dynamics a bit.  Still a nice listen.  Enjoy.

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.
