Two Cow Garage @ The Lion's Lair, Denver, CO 2013-10-18






My first almost experience with Two Cow Garage was going to be in Lincoln Nebraska back in 2005.  They were supposed to open up for Slobberbone.  I think their van broke down and they didn't make it that night.  The name was off kilter enough that I didn't forget it and I figured if Slobberbone was going to have them open they must be decent.

Fast forward a couple years later and I find out Denver's own Suburban Home is going to be putting out a Two Cow Garage album and that they were coming to town.  I finally got to see them play live and loved it from the first note.  They just brought the exact kind of sound that I was seeking.

They have put out a couple album since then and some solo records by Shane and Micah.  Not a dud in the bunch.  TCG is a solid rock n roll outfit.  If your not familiar with their music I can't recommend it highly enough.

Last Friday was a full on Two Cow Garage day.  First up I helped out my buddy Dammit Damian capture his first ever live in front of an audience Mostly Harmless podcast at the Mutiny Information Cafe here in Denver.  He talked to the band about a variety of subjects and Micah and Shane handed a guitar back and forth for some song.
Check out his podcast here:

Here is a video I shot of TCG covering Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run at the Lion's Lair.

Against Me! @ Riot Fest - Byers, CO 2013-09-21









For a band that has been going for more then a decade now Against Me! shows no signs of slowing up.  If anything I think their best years might be ahead of them.  I can't wait to hear their new album. 

Live they always bring it and this day at Riot Fest was no exception.  The only downside was the sun was setting right behind the band so it made it hard to look up and watch the show.  Nice mix of songs across the Against Me catalog an some new tunes as well.  Enjoy.
