Split Lip Rayfield @ The Bluebird, 2006-09-02

Wow it has been 6 years since this show.  Doesn't seem that long at all.  I was obsessed with this band from the very first time that I saw them.  Just an electrifying live act.  If you not familiar with the band I have described them in the past as the Slayer of bluegrass.  Due to both the speed at which they play and some of the songs subject matter.  Some pretty dark stuff for such happy sounding music.  Right up my alley though so no wonder it clicked.

This show is from their last tour with Kirk Rundstrom in the band.  He found out he had esophageal cancer on the eve of an previous Denver show.  He underwent treatment but when the prognosis didn't change he decided to stop the therapy that was just making him sick and go on tour.  He look frail but he was smiling and really gave it his all.  Rest In Peace Kirk.  You are missed.
