Anthrax @ The Starlight, Ft Collins, CO 2001-09-12

Day after the 9-11 that no one is going to forget.  Didn't think the show was going to happen at all.
Band couldn't fly home so they decided to forge ahead and play some shows.  There is a little bit of talk about current events.  Nothing to heavy though.  This is late period John Bush Anthrax and the setlist is heavy with those songs.

Not the best recording either.  B- or a C+ maybe.  Vocals are pretty clear through out.
The show is incomplete do to some bad media issues.  A few songs fade out or fade in.
It is what it is.  By a fan for the fans.  Check it out.

Girls Against Boys @ The Bluebird 2002-09-10

Was really into these guys back in the 90's through early 00's.  I picked up their release Freak*on*ica the other day on vinyl and really enjoyed hearing it again.  Even if that was their sell out major label release.

I know most folks prefer their older efforts.  This set has a mix of old and new stuff from their release at the time You Can't Fight What You Can't See.

Don't remember much about this show but I did enjoy hearing it back for the first time in 11 + years.

Check it out.

16 Horsepower @ The Ogden, 2000-07-18

I picked up the brand new Wovenhand release, The Laughing Stalk, the other day at Wax Trax here in Denver.  What a nice packaging.  Really striking.  And the music is as good or better then anything they have ever done in my book.  Seriously worth checking out.

Upon my first listen I started kicking myself for not making it out to their recent Denver show.  From the reviews I read it was a great show.  I had no doubts that it was going to be but circumstances conspired against me and I couldn't make it.

That weekend got me thinking about the bands pedigree and how great 16 Horsepower was live.
I dug out my old master of my recording of their performance at the Ogden Theater in Denver way back on July 18th 2000.  It was the first time I had seen them.  I came a little late to the 16HP party.

Got to see them several other times.  Always a treat.

I traded this out a fair amount back in the, CDRs in the mail, trading days so it is possible that you have heard this.  This post is a fresh transfer from the original masters.  Hope you enjoy it.
