Superchunk @ Riot Fest - Byers, CO 2013-09-21

While I've dug Superchunk for a bunch of years for some reason I had just never seen them live.  I thought they played a great set at Riot Fest.  Good stuff.  Enjoy.

FLAG @ Riot Fest - Byers CO, 2013-09-22

Loud Fast Rules!!  Right on the heels of Public Enemy on the next stage over FLAG tore into it.  Super Loud!!!  Also right as a weather front was blowing in.  The wind picked up almost right away and blew one of the side banners hanging from the stage loose.  The crew scrambled to lower the speakers and secure everything from the approaching storm while the band played on.  20 minutes in or so they cut power to the PA and emergency weather announcements started to be heard.

Then we were told to evacuate the site.  It appeared that a storm with 1" hail, strong wind, rain, and lightning was headed out way.  It turned out that the worst of it mostly missed the farm.  We just got rained on and wind blown.  After 2+ hours the reopened the site and all the scheduled bands still played.  Mostly in a downpour the later it got.

The combination of the volume from the stage and the uptic in the wind take a toll on the quality of this recording.  Vocals are clear though.  It is what it is.  Warts and all.  Enjoy.

Rocket From The Crypt @ Riot Fest, Byers CO, 2013-09-21

It's been a decade since I last got to see Rocket From The Crypt and I sure have missed seeing them.  Sure their were some heavy hitters on the Riot Fest bill but RFTC being on it convinced me that I had to go.

They still sound great and they played a nice mix of material across their career.  Enjoy.

Paul Westerberg live @ the Ogden, Denver CO, 2005-03-03

"You're Uncivilized Heathens!!  You deserve nothing but bone crunching stupid rock"  Paul Westerberg

So here is another recording presented in anticipation of Riot Fest coming to Denver this weekend.  With the Replacements headlining on Saturday night!  Paul Westerberg live at the Ogden Theater in Denver Colorado on March 3rd 2005.

Back then this was as close I as I figured I'd ever get to seeing the Replacements.  Good set list of old and new tunes.  Both from his solo releases and the Replacements.

One note about this recording is that it is incomplete.  The original WAV files disapeared from my hard drives and backups.  This got shared online back in 2005 and I burned a few CDRs for some people.  If anyone has it in the original FLAC format or has it on CDRs that where burned from FLACs please let me know.  I would love to have a complete version of this.

That being said the 3 songs that are missing aren't a huge lose and don't effect the enjoyment of the show.

Paul Westerberg's band included Kevin Bowe on guitar, Jim Boquist on bass, and Michael Bland on drums.

About the cover picture.  That is from this show.  Paul dropped his pants for some reason later in the night.

Public Enemy live in Englewood, CO 1999-10-17

I recall that this show was on the same night at a Bronco's football game.  The Gothic holds about 1000 people but there wasn't more then a couple hundred that turned out for the show.  Bad for the band but good for me.  No crowd helped me make a really nice recording.

Public Enemy was on the 40th world tour behind the album "There's a Poison Goin' On".  There were keeping it lean and mean so no extra MCs or S1Ws.  Just Chuck D., Flavor Flav, Proffesor Griff & DJ Lord.

Epic 2 hour long set from Public Enemy.  Hitting all the high points of there catalogue up to this point in 1999.

I traded this out a fair amount back in the CDR trading days.  This is a fresh transfer from the original minidiscs and a fresh master and tracking job.  Enjoy.

Mastodon @ Cervantes, Denver, CO 2006-09-19

This was a hell of a show.  Mastodon headlined with Converge and The Bronx opening.  Good times.
I don't have a whole lot to say about this other than I think it turned out really nice and I love the intro warning PSA about the dangers of psychedelic drugs.  This hot dog is talking to me Terry!!!
