This week's episode was dedicated to the American holiday of Thanksgiving and all the trimmings that come with it, like the insanity of Black Friday, enduring the stress of travel and family feuds, and then giving thanks when it's all over. Taking a peek at what's playing London and Denver (and cities beyond), I threw down some Vaccines along with a new track from Sulk, plus songs from Crocodiles, Japandroids and Deathset.
Japandroids returned to Denver on Monday, November 18, this time to throw down at the Bluebird with Phili's Swearin' in tow. It was only a few years ago when lead singer, Brian King, stated that the duo, including drummer David Prowse, performed at the Hi-Dive to 10 people. With time, dedication, "crappy gear" (complete with bright green tape on the guitar, which required tuning between each song) and tenacity you can sell out Larimer and come back a few months later to pack out the Bluebird.
There we were, holed up at the Walnut Room the night of the presidential election, glued to the glowing TVs as CNN spewed their gibber-gabber on one and on another, to Comedy Central, awaiting for Jon Stewart's Daily Show to weigh in. Before Mr. Stewart could weigh in, Tosh.O was in the house…donning a Japandroids T-shirt. My friends and random peeps at the bar chimed in with glee at the fact that soon, Japandroids would be returning to Denver.
