Raising Money and Lifting Hearts

SHOW #33: The Avett Brothers with City and Colour at Red Rocks on 6/29/12 I have to start this post out by giving mad props to both the Avett Brothers and their fans for raising over $20,000 for fire relief at the show last night. All they did was have a few volunteers carry boots […]

The Heaviest of Metal

SHOW #32: Holy Grail with Royal Thunder and The Kick Ass at the Marquis Theater on 6/27/12 So I learned something last night, that something being that head banging isn’t nearly as effective if you have short hair.

Too Tired

SHOW #27: The Moondoggies with Mosey West and Ross Etherton & The Chariots of Judah at The Hi-Dive on 6/14/12 This post might be a bit short. I was tired as hell for this show for some reason. I’m not sure what it was but something wore me out and left me feeling a bit […]
