Shooter Jennings @ Boulder Theatre, Boulder CO, 2006-08-30


Shooter is the only son of Walyon Jennings and Jessi Colter.  He's been am active musician since a young age and tried his hand in multiple genres over the years.

In 2005 he out out a country album that made a fairly big splash called "Put the 'O' Back in Country'. Followed up by 'Electric Rodeo'.    Those too are my favorite that I have spent the most time listening too.  But it had a large catalog of releases that worth exploring.

Around that time he started hitting the road pretty hard and eventually ended up in Boulder Colorado for this show.  I recall that this show was fairly sparsely attended and Shooter comments from the stage that they didn't know how Boulder was going to like some country music.   I remember there was a group of women who won tickets to the show from KYGO, or whatever the big pop country radio station was at the time, and they didn't seem very into it.

I thought it was a great show and at the time Shooter was open to people recording his shows and I ran a big tall mic stand to capture this.   That and the small crowd helped me make a nice capture.

I posted this on back then.  This version has been sweetened up a bit and freshly tagged.

Motörhead @ Ogden Theater, Denver CO, 1999-10-05

Just over 22 years ago.  Motörhead live at the Ogden Theater.   Motörhead was on tour for Snake Bite Love.  I believe that this was my first time seeing Motörhead as well.

This was still during my first year of recording shows.   The levels are blown out right at the beginning but I real it in pretty quick.   Over all it's a little muddy but very listenable I think. 

I'm sure I traded this out on CDR back then but it must not have gotten around very much as there wasn't even a setlist on

Split Lip Rayfield @ Quixotes, Denver CO, 2008-01-18


I first saw Split Lip Rayfield in 2004 at the Larimer Lounge.  I had been planning on going to see Wayne 'The Train' Hancock that night at the Lion's Lair but he canceled.  A friend had already made it downtown to see that show too so I suggested that we go check out Split Lip Rayfield instead.

We biked on over there from Cap Hill and had our minds blown.  I was an instant fan.  I think all their albums are great and worth seeking out if your a fan of some frantic bluegrass.  Really good song writing too.

Sadly they lost one of the main members Kirk Rundstrom to cancer in 2007.  After taking a much needed breather.  They returned to the road in 2008 as a tribute to Kirk.   This show was from that tour at Quixotes True Blue in Denver CO.

In more recent bad news SLR member Wayne Gottstine also is having a bout with cancer.  Go seek out some official band product, or I bet he might have a kickstarter, if you so inclined to send some support to the band or him directly.

Hell of a setlist on this cold night back in 2008.  I had remembered this one as being not so good with a shitty crowd.  Time has faded whatever perceived faults I thought this had.  The crowd is pretty rowdy but it doesn't  over power the music.  Enjoy.

Camper Van Beethoven @ Lion's Lair, Denver CO, 2004-08-05


Here is a monster 2 hour Camper Van Beethoven set from 2004 that my friend Tom captured at the Lion's Lair.   38 songs in total.  Hell of a fun setlist.

This one has been out in the wild for a long time including on the LMA.  It has long been a favorite of mine so I figured I would get it posted up on here.  Enjoy

Negative Approach @ HQ, Denver CO, 2021-09-01


It's been awhile since I have posted a recent show for obvious reasons.  Finally getting out to see some shows again.

For example when Detroit Hardcore legends Negative Approach plays within walking distance you don't miss it.   The show was really fantastic and despite John Brannon looking like a mad man he was really nice after the show and answered a few questions for me and signed my Easy Action LP.

Local openers Direct Threat, No Takes, and Implied risk also kicked ass.  I've included untracked downloads of their sets at the bottom of this page.   Enjoy.

*****This show happened on the 1st but for some reason I tagged these all as the 2nd. Oops****

Morbid Angel @ Oriental Theater, Denver CO, 2019-03-01


This was a sick tour.  Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Necrot, and Blood Incantation all on one stage.  At one of my favorite big rooms for metal in Denver too.  It was a Friday night too.  What more could you want.

I posted the Cannibal Corpse set a while back so I figured I would get this one up too.

Nice mix of old and new songs in the setlist.   Enjoy

.357 Stringband @ Benders Tavern, Denver CO, 2007-06-20


.357 String band was Derek Dunn (guitar and vocals), Joseph Huber (banjo, fiddle and vocals), Rick Ness (upright bass) and Jayke Orvis (multi-instrumentalist including mandolin).  Jayke left the band in 2009 and they continued on for a few years until Joseph Huber also decided to call it a day.  They have all gone on to record more music and explore other directions.  

I had forgotten about what a fun show this was.   All red hot pickers and most of the songs are barn burners.  They soldiered through a bunch of technical difficulties on this night back in 2007 at the, gone but not forgotten, Benders Tavern in Denver Colorado.   I managed to edit out most of the dead air as it were.  It was a real momentum killer at two different spots in the set that night.  

Seek out their music if you dig this and check out what all the members are up to as well.  
As always please support independent music and art any way you can.  Enjoy.
