The End of the Road

SHOW #52: Around The Bend at Swallow Hill 12/13/12 So this is it internet. I’ve pulled it off. 52 shows in a year. Less than a year technically. I started the last week of January and now here we are mid December and I’ve completed my goal. 52 shows in a year. To be honest […]

Super Dillard Brothers

SHOW #49: Daniel Dillard with Josh Dillard at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret Once again before I get going I must make statements of disclosure. I’ve known Daniel Dillard for at least five years. We’ve never been much more than acquaintances and prior to last night I’d never heard him perform. Still I know that he’s a […]

The Joy of Calming Music

SHOW #48: Dark Dark Dark with Emily Wells and The Changing Colors Oh dear sweet internet. How have you been? I’ve been pretty fantastic, though I’ll readily admit that I’ve also been a bit lax. It’s been almost two weeks since my last post. What the heck is going on here? I think I may […]

Two Men Six Names

SHOW #46: William Elliott Whitmore with Randall Conrad Olinger at The Marquis Theater 10/4/12 Even though it felt a little awkward I stood exceptionally close for this show. Pretty much front and center. I had questioned this decision, which was obviously made before anyone showed up, because it just felt kind of strange standing there […]

The New Old Fashioned

SHOW #44: Sallie Ford and The Sound Outside with A. Tom Collins at the Hi-Dive on 9/16/12 Hey Internet, it’s…well it’s been a while. Don’t worry though, I wasn’t off writing concert reviews for some other internet that I like better. I just had a pretty hefty amount of time between my jaunt to that […]

True Blues

SHOW #41: Big Bill Morganfield with The Delta Sonics featuring Clay Kirkland at Swallow Hill on 8/24/12 Before I talk about the show I’d like to talk about Swallow Hill, because Swallow Hill is amazing. I’ve only ever lived in Denver so I don’t know if places like this are common in most cities but […]

UMS Sunday

SHOW #37: UMS Sunday 7/22/12: You Me & Apollo, Paper Bird, Nathaniel Rateliff, Radical Knitting Circle, The Marrow, and Ezra Furman Sunday’s stay at the UMS was shorter than I would have liked. In the end it was probably good for my knee but I wouldn’t have minded getting down there a little earlier. The […]
