Today Is The Day @ The Marquis, Denver, CO 2017-07-26









This band certainly isn't for everyone.  I have some friends who are fans of more gently music that Today Is The Day would seriously bum out.  It's ugly and visceral in away that is practically confrontational. It feels a bit dangerous.   And I mean all  that in the most complimentary way possible.  Love TITD a ton.

Rest of Denver wasn't feeling it though.  Only about 50 or so folks showed up.  It was a week night. I get it.  I'm guilty of saying "fuck it" and bailing on weekday shows pretty often.  Y'all missed out though.

Fantastic opening sets from Denver Glacial Tomb and out of towners Kayo Dot.  TITD was on tour for the 20th anniversary of their groundbreaking album Temple Of The Morning Star.  Played a large amount of songs from that release and a career spanning mix of additional numbers.  Very satisfying evening of music.

Steve Austin seemed genuinely ok with the small turn out and had nice things to say about Denver.

Buy their records.  Go see them live.  I saw in Decibel that the are working on getting a new album out soon too.  The Today Is The Day train powers on.

Enjoy
