Old Times are New Again

SHOW #50: The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band with Trapper Schoepp & The Shades This was one of those shows where I didn’t know what to expect going in. My decision to go was very last minute and I only went because a friend of mine mentioned that he had really enjoyed The Reverend Peyton’s […]

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 […]

Like Night and Day

SHOW #47: Marinade on Pearl Street and at Sancho’s Broken Arrow 10/7/12 and 10/8/12 You might remember Marinade. I saw them way back in June. The full disclosure from that night still stands.

One Show at 1,376 Feet

Mumford and Son of a Bitch That Was Awesome

SHOW #42: Mumford and Sons with Dawes and Slow Club at Red Rocks on 8/28/12 Mumford and Sons at Red Rocks. I’ll write more than that but in the end that’s all that really has to be said. It’s the perfect combination for a perfect show and perfect it was. I haven’t seen Red Rocks […]

Back to the Bar

SHOW #39: Milo Greene with River City Extension and Family of the Year at the Hi-Dive on 8/10/12 So, I saw a show at a bar last night. It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve done that. Granted I was at the Hi-Dive a few weeks ago but that was as part of the […]
