Detroit Cobras @ Ogden Theater, Denver CO, 2009-10-23

 

This is a last time I saw the Detroit Cobras so it has been awhile I guess.  13 years ago.
On this night the were opening up for the Pogues.  Rachel was pretty excited about that it seemed.

Shorter set than the Lion's Lair shows I have posted before but this show has a bunch of songs that I hadn't heard them do live before.

This is a little distant maybe but I think the room mix sounds good.  Only a little bit of crowd chatter.  Enjoy.

The Detroit Cobras, @ The Lion's Lair, Denver CO, 2003-07-26

 

Heard the sad news yesterday that Rachel Nagy of Detroit Cobras fame had passed away.  She was a powerhouse live.  I was lucky to catch them a handful of times live over the years.  Mostly at the tiny Lion's Lair in Denver.  

I posted both nights of a two night stand that they did at the Lion's Lair in 2002 for the Lair's 10th anniversary party.   You can file those here:    2002 Lion's Lair shows

This show was a year later and was a packed sweaty good time.  Not a care in the world...living our best life...as they say.

Board mix recording of this show is a bit vocal heavy but I thought it sounded really good in the revisit today.  I hope you enjoy it.

Brant Bjork and The Low Desert Punk Band @ Summit Music Hall, Denver CO, 2015-11-23

 


Always fun to see Brant Bjork in any configuration.  This night was with Brant Bjork and The Low Desert Punk Band touring behind an album of the same name.  They play mostly songs from that with a few from Tao Of The Devil.   Short but sweet.

This show had a hell of a lineup with Corrosion Of Conformity headlining and additional support from Mothership and Saviours.   Good times.   

As always go support the artist you love.  Brant has a bandcamp page with a bunch of releases and other merch.  Independent artists need out support more that ever right now.  

Enjoy

Radio 4 @ Bluebird Theater, Denver CO, 2002-09-10

 


Radio 4 was a dancey post punk band from NYC.  Back in that era there was a bunch of bands playing groovier Mission To Burma, Gang Of Four influenced rock music.  This show had Radio 4 opening for like minded band Girls Against Boys.  Radio 4 gives me a bit of a Clash vibe too.  They put out a ton of dance remixes during their career. 

I remember thinking that this was really great at the time.  Funny how it took me almost 20 years to revisit it.  Still think it is great.  Listening to this show inspired me to track down a copy of their album Gotham!.   Really underrated band.  If you did this go search out some of their releases.

Great sound on this one.  Chapper borrowed the Neumanm's for this show.

If you want to hear the GVSB set it is posted here.

Rocket From The Crypt & The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Denver CO, 2001-04-24

 



2001 was a really banner year for me going to shows.  I saw a ton of stuff and recorded most of it.  This week in April of 2001 was a good one.  I saw 16 Horsepower in Boulder on the 27th and right before that show I caught this amazing Rocket From The Crypt / The (International) Noise Conspiracy show. That was a hell of a week for some live music.

To this day I think this is the best RFTC setlist I have ever seen performed.  The band was at the top of their game around then and firing on all cylinders.   They open with Middle/69 and close with an encore of the A side of State Of The Art is on Fire!!!   Ton of great songs in-between.

Also on the bill was Dennis Lyxzen new band The (International) Noise Conspiracy.  Which he formed right after The Refused broke up in 1998.  Really great stuff.

The Explosion was also on the bill but I don't have a recording and no recollection of them so it is possible I missed them.

Enjoy

16 Horsepower @ Fox Theatre, Boulder CO, 2001-04-27

 

Here is another 16 Horsepower show.  This time it is a 2001 performance at the Fox Theatre in Boulder Colorado.  Devotchka opened up for then at this show who have gone on to get much much bigger.

The setlist is heavy on material from Secret South but includes a few old numbers as well.  They close out the set with a really cool Joy Division cover.

I always thought the Fox sounded great and I think that really comes though on this recording compared to the big boomy Ogden from the last post.

I'm sure I traded this out on CDR back in the day.   This is a fresh transfer from the masters.  Newly adjusted, tracked, and tagged.  I consider it an upgrade to the original release.  Enjoy.

16 Horsepower @ Ogden Theatre, Denver CO, 2002-08-20

 

This turned out to be my last time seeing 16 Horsepower.  By 2002 David Eugene Edward's other band Wovenhand had already been an established touring act which later became his main band.  

There was one more 16HP Denver show at the Gothic in 2003 that I missed sadly.  They played a handful of Euro dates in 2004 and then 16 Horsepower was done.  Wovenhand has gone on to put out about 10 albums since this show.   So David has never let up.  At least not until current events intervened.  I heard some rumblings about a new Wovenhand being in the works too.  So go look up what he's been doing lately.  Wovenhand is on bandcamp.

This set features a bunch of songs from the recently released Folklore album which contains some covers and takes on traditional songs.  Some old classic 16HP songs too.  David really stretches out on the show closer Horsehead Fiddle.  I enjoyed revisiting this show.   Good times.

I'm sure I traded this show out on CDR back then.  This version is a fresh transfer from the masters.  Newly adjusted, tracked and tagged.  I consider it an upgrade to that old version.
