Reverend Beat-Man & Sister Nicole Izobel Garcia @ Pipers Opera House, Virginia City NV, 2018-04-15

Slovenly Records / Sticker Guy's Debauch-A-Reno Fest 2018 was a ton of fun.  Saw a bunch of killer bands.  Bought some great records.  Had a fun time bopping around Reno.

Big treat for me was the chance to get to see Reverend Beat-Man twice.  I think the last time he rolled through Denver was 2010ish.  He doesn't make it over to the USA very often.  This time he brought his partner in crime Sister Nicole Izobel Garcia. 

This show was a festival wind down show South of Reno in the mountains in the town of Virginia City.  An old mining town with an old opera house and lots of character.  And characters.

Short but sweet set.  Enjoy.

DTK-MC5 @ Bluebird Theater, Denver CO, 2004-07-09

I just finished reading Wayne Kramer's fabulous autobiography The Hard Stuff and was inspired to pull this recording out of the archive to check it out.  I had kinda forgotten about it.  I recalled that night as being a bit of a mess and not that great.

For those of you not familiar with this band.  Wayne Kramer wanted to pay tribute to his friends/band members from the MC5 that had passed. Fred "Sonic" Smith and Rob Tyner.  Original MC5 members Dennis Thompson and Michael Davis played drums and bass.  Various second guitarists and vocalists joined for the multiple legs of this tour.  This Denver show had Evan Dando (Lemonheads) and Mark Arm (Mudhoney) handling vocals and Marshall Crenshaw filled out the lineup as the 2nd guitarist.

Dando wasn't well behaved on this tour and was eventually fired in Japan.  I recall not being impressed by him at this show and Mark Arm carrying the weight of the performance.

What I had also forgotten was that I had gotten a soundboard recording that night.  Listening back now Dando wasn't as terrible as I remembered.  Pretty great sound on this.  I sweetened up the EQ a bit.  Enjoy.

The Meteors @ Benders Tavern, Denver CO 2006-08-09

A little blast from the past back when The Meteors came to Denver as part of their very small US tour in 2006.  We were one of around 5 dates total.  So this was a treat.  The Meteors just never came over to the US very much. 

It's been awhile but I recall that it wasn't a large turnout but it was a very enthusiastic crowd.

Miss seeing shows at Benders it was always a fun time.  The vocals are a bit low on this but I think overall it sounds really nice.  Enjoy.
