I try to guide you to some good stuff, Denver… …late 2017 / early 2018.

Here’s part of what you should check out in 2018…

Vic and the Narwhals…  I’m a fan…  Roka played with them about six months ago and I saw them playing with Don Chicharron last weekend.  I dunno how these cats describe themselves but I’d say something along the lines of: Latin-fusion-psychedelic…  Whatever your description: these cats are fun…  They’re playing on January 18th at Lost Lakedsc09084.jpg

And then there’s Don Chicharron…  Another fav…  This cats drop the Peruvian Chicha on ya…  For those who aren’t familiar: chicha = psychedelic cumbia.  C’mon…  You already know that shit just sounds tight…  These cats played with Vic and the Narwhals at Hi-Dive…

Also!  Saved by Aliens.  Yo, if you’re into bass/drum duo…  These cats.  If you’re reading this blog you may be familiar with my own music, style, abilities, etc…  …yeah, this cat made me wanna go home and practice.  …in an inspired way.  Good shit, yo…  Kid dominates the looper pedal.

Also recently checked out Me Me Monster…  I had heard them from a distance while walking the Denver [Santa Fe] Art Walk last summer but by the time I got to the spot where they were performing they’d were calling it quits.  Still, I made a mental note to check them out and I wasn’t disappointed.   It’s a rock trio: bass, drums, guitar…  Charismatic drummer/singer..  These cats got tricks, yo…  Solid musicians, dress the part, and they take you away for a minute…  They funny…  The bassist wears a monkey mask and plays a sweet Fender Jaguar bass…

 

Plastic Daggers, Colfax Speed Queen, and Muscle Beach at the Hi-Dive

YO!  I haven’t posted too much music stuff lately cuz my camera’s been broke…

But we’re back on the air…

These videos are from Plastic Daggers’ CD release show, Dec 10th at the Hi-Dive in Denver.  I picked up a copy of the album (on vinyl) and gotta say: pretty dope.  Also picked up the vinyl for Colfax Speed Queen…

Here’s some footage starting with Muscle Beach:

Colfax Speed Queen

Plastic Daggers

Yeah, but… does it have a repeat-1 option?

Tonight’s show was like every other show: we performed, I recorded our performance, got home, listened to the recording until I passed out.

…and that’s all I’ll listen to.

For the next several weeks…

Until our next show/recording.

Over and over.  Somewhere around 50+ times…

…and I got no shame.  I love the projects I work on, I listen to refine the bass lines, and I listen because I want to bring people something that is worth their time.

Pink Hawks with Hard Proof at the Hi-Dive Oct. 20th

Yo.

Here’s your opportunity to afrobeat your face off.  All  night till the break-a-break-a dawn…  Or until they close the Hi-Dive at 2am.

Pink Hawks will be opening for Hard Proof on Thurs, Oct. 20, 2016.  This may or may not be my first time playing the Hi-Dive.  I dunno.  I’ll sniff the stage in search of my scent from yesteryear.

Bring your sweat cuz you’re gonna leave it there.  On the dance floor cuz…  You’re gonna move…  You’re gonna groove…  Yeah…  Just click here for tickets and details and trust me
