Around town tonight and tomorrow

Alright, just the highlights for tonight and tomorrow. I'm personally going to be at the Hi-Dive for the New Ben Franklins CD release show, but there is plenty of other great music around town too. Also check out Young Dubliners at Soiled Dove, String Cheese Incident at 1st Bank Center, The Head and the Heart at Moe's, and the Indulgers at Scruffy Murphys.

Tomorrow night I will personally be at Toad Tavern for Bonnie Situation and Hot Gun. If you don't want to go there, check out Slim Cessna's Auto Club at Gothic, The Polkanauts at the Irish Rover, String Cheese Incident at 1st Bank Center, Indulgers at Fado Irish Pub, or Jim Mcturnan and the Kids that Killed the Man at Hi-Dive.

Sorry I've been absent, working full time again has been a huge adjustment.

Lords of Acid

Wednesday night I headed to Summit Music Hall for the Lords of Acid show (see pictures on my Facebook page) and was treated to an incredible show. Opening the show was Radical G and Anglespit. Awesome G was far from radical, in fact he is argument 1 for why you should never pay top dollar to see a DJ. They have nothing to truly offer except some flashing lights and a computer playing shit you could play at home if you wanted to. There was nothing even remotely good about his set except for him ending. He was complete shit. Skip him at all costs. If you are going to see Lords of Acid later in the tour, go late enough to miss him.

Up next was Anglespit. This is a british band made up of a young man and woman who basically have preprogrammed music that they sing over as well. While they did not play instruments, I will not categorize this as a DJ set. They actually moved around the stage, sung, danced, and got the crowd energized. Most of their songs sounded a bit like white goths trying to rap over an industrial beat, but they were entertaining. I would never personally buy their CDs but they were good for an opener. Nothing incredibly special.

Finally it was time for Lords of Acid. I've been wanting to see them for years but it just hadn't worked out for me. Needless to say, they did not disappoint. They opened up with Drink My Honey which showcased the bands talent in an instrumental. I have to say, I absolutely love their bassist. You could tell he really enjoyed playing to the crowd. He was constantly posing, making faces, and getting as close to the crowd as he could. He was hard to not watch. After Drink My Honey, DJ Mea made her entrance for Stripper. Wearing a leather catsuit, she demanded everyone's attention or you would probably get a spanking. From there the show was filled with sexual overtones and outright sexual music. The setlist included some of their biggest songs like Pussy, Voodoo U, Crablouse, Rough Sex, and I Sit on Acid. They also played a new song called Bunny Vibrator, where DJ Mea brought her bunny vibrator out onstage and got a bit dirty with it. The energy was incredibly high, the crowd was really great, and the setlist was rocking. There was not a slow moment in their show and they played two encores. Check them out on tour if you can.

What's happening this Wednesday?

Tomorrow is hump day and this week is looking rather lame so far (other than Dropkick Murphys tonight) Oh well, what can you do? I know you are ready to do something fun, so here are your weak options for tomorrow.

Deicide, Belphegor, Blackguard, Neuraxis, Pathology @Bluebird

Trey Anastasio @Ogden

Belle Brigade w/ Land Lines (members of Matson Jones), Bare Bones @Hi-Dive

MartyParty, Opiuo, Freq Nasty w/ Frequent C & Dave Seied@Cervantes

GLASSJAW @Summit Music Hall

Bill McKay of Leftover Salmon @Ziggies

The Canopy, Places, LOOK! Our Hero, Black Rainbow, Trust No One @Herman's Hideaway

Ok, so there are a couple worthy things to seek out tomorrow. Trey Anastasio would be awesome if he wasn't sold out. Bill McKay would probably be a fun night too. From what I hear, it's the original line up of Glassjaw if that means anything. If all of this looks bleak to you, you could always I don't know, watch street performers somewhere.

Highlights for the rest of the week.

Thursday Jeff Austin and Friends at Boulder Theater

Friday- Hotgun and Landgrabbers at Lion's Lair, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band @Oriental

Saturday Legendary River Drifters @Larimer Lounge, Reckless Red at Chapultepec too.

Some good stuff coming up, lots of not so good stuff coming up. What can you do? It's a quiet weekend and perfect for me to escape to LA for a day or two. Don't be jealous. Until next time....have fun.
