RIP Johnny Winter

jw

Well CNN just gave some pretty lame-ass news. The legendary Texas Blues guitarist Johnny Winter passed away at the young age of 70.

If you don’t know who Johnny Winter is, let me bring you up to speed. Dude…f**king…rips. I mean, you hear this guy play and you wonder what other guitarists are going to do for a living. There’s no damn competition. I’m talking about lightning-fast Texas style slide Blues guitar faster than you can even comprehend.

The Budos Band Show Review

budos

Venue: Bluebird Theater

Location: Denver, Colorado

Date: 07/09/14

Inebriation Level: Party Time

Sometimes you just have to get funky. That right there is a fact of life. Look no further than the eight-piece instrumental band from NYC that call themselves The Budos Band.

I’d originally caught wind of the band back in my college days where they regularly took down the house at the Bluebird in Bloomington, IN. When I heard they were rolling into Denver, CO and hitting up the Bluebird here, it was a no question “let’s party” situation.

I brought the special lady along and we got to the venue a bit after the opening band finished their set. The Bluebird is a nice sized venue, halfway between the small do-they-make-any-money places and large i-can’t-see-a-damn-thing venues. I was in complete party time mode and ready to jam my ass off. We pushed our way right up to the stage and I noticed the roadies not touching the equipment, but just lugging beers. PBR after PBR until they even brought out a damn suitcase of burrs. Now everyone was ready to get into party time mode.

Show #60: Less Talk & More Rock

logo

You know what, Earth? I got to thinking. About life, music, and the pursuit of rockiness. I decided that sometimes, you’ve got to listen to music a little bit differently. So this week, we dropped the singers and went instrumental. Oh yeah. Too many genres have awesome instrumental bands, so I focused solely on one genre: Post-Rock. Turns out, even without a singer, you can rock out pretty heavy. Don’t believe me? Click that link below and crank up the old speaks. I prove my point. Well, technically I will prove my point after you listen to the show.

Show #59: The Best Of 2013 (Part 2)

logo

Well I’ll be Earth, it’s been awhile. After a little hiatus, TRR is up and rocking again, though a little more on the DL. That’s ‘down low’ if you’re not into the whole acronym thing. Anyway, I’m now rocking the show on a non-weekly basis, so my times will be a’changing, but I’m aiming to broadcast a show once a month for the time being. Who knows, maybe I’ll rev the party train back up in the near future. Either way, it’s jam time, and we’re picking up right where we left off. Here are the very best albums of 2013, and boy were they awesome.  Read the full post »
