She Wants Revenge @ Three Kings, Denver CO 2019-12-21

So not my usual cup of tea but I had seen these guys before sometime back in the foggy past with some friends and enjoyed it.  When I heard they were playing my local I knew we would have to catch them again.

Last time I saw She Wants Revenge they played the Gothic so it was a treat to see them in an intimate venue like Three Kings Tavern.  It was a pricey ticket so most of the people that came were all big fans.  Fun night with a bunch of friends old and new.

She Wants Revenge was on tour playing all of their 2007 album This Is Forever.  And start to finish that is what they did.  Not saying a word until the end.  Then ending the set with the hits.

I don't record too many shows at 3 Kings these days.   So it was nice to capture a big one.  I still think it's one of the best sounding rooms in town.

High On Fire @ Oriental Theater, Denver CO, 2019-11-29

The mighty shred fest that is High On Fire.   Just a total sonic beat down start to finish.  Unrelenting riff upon unrelenting riff.  Always a treat to catch these guys live.  Glad to see Matt Pike on the mead and them back out on the road kicking ass with a new drummer.  The sounded great.

Patterson Hood @ Globe Hall, Denver CO, 2019-12-18

Nice bookend show too the Mike Cooley from a few weeks before.  Never had seen either of these guys outside of full band Drive-by Truckers.

Stellar set list.  Was stoked to finally hear The Night G.G. Allin Came To Town live.  Good stuff.

Slim Cessna's Auto Club @ Bluebird Theater, Denver CO, 2001-12-31

Photo Credit: Sherry Crawford

Oh man Slim Cessna's Auto Club are coming up on the 20th anniversary of their annual New Year's Eve show.  Where did the time go.  The first was in 1999 at the Gothic Theater.  This year it is going to be a the Hi Dive.  I've made it to quite a few over the years.  At least one of the 2 nights usually.  

I missed the 1999 show because my wife at the time was scared by all the Y2K horseshit and I wasn't allowed to go.   Going to try and make the 30th show this year.  Have other plans for NYE.

Hadn't listened to this 2001 show in a long time.  I think it sounds pretty nice.  I can't remember where I setup for this but crown noise and chattiness is fairly minimal.  And what a set list.  Lost of old school classics in this one.   The opened with my favorite Last Song About Satan but I must not have been ready to hit record and I missed all of that and the beginning of Cranston City Sinner.

Big thanks to Sherry Crawford for letting my post her photos of this event.  It was an epic NYE.

Drive-by Truckers @ Bluebird Theater, Denver CO, 2004-02-18

Monster 30 song set from the Drive-by Truckers at arguable the height of their powers.  Jason Isbell was still in the band and they were just about to release the album Dirty South.

Amazing setlist covering most of their catalog up to that point. 

Not sure why I hadn't shared this one before.  Really nice sounding board recording.  Enjoy.

Power Trip @ Oriental Theater, Denver CO, 2019-11-29

Love me some High On Fire but I was most excited to catch Power Trip on this night. 

Loud Fast Rules straight out of the gate.   Such a tight live band.  It's impressive.  Totally dig the thrash crossover thing their doing.   It pays tribute to the past but carves out it's own niche.

Mike Cooley @ Larimer Lounge, Denver CO , 2019-12-07

Caught the second night of Mike Cooley's weekend stand at the Larimer Lounge.  I've seen the Drive-by Truckers a bunch of times but never have seen Mike or Patterson solo. 

Setlist full of all his amazing DBT songs spanning their whole career.   Good stuff

Bonus points for a nice quite respectful crowd.  Enjoy
