May 13, 2022
Hi-Dive (Denver, CO)
This show soldout and at the end of the night I learned that William Basinski had personally picked me to open for him and he told me gossip about classical composers from the late 70’s and early 80’s. What an incredible night!
April 01, 2022
at Mutiny (Denver, CO)
This was my first Tripp Nasty show since 2015, and my first post quarantine show. It was super fun. Everyone played an excellent set. I couldn’t stop smiling all night.

Note: Tripp Nasty’s last show in Denver for a long, long time. There was a terrible storm and no one came except for the people who live at Club Scum, Rhinoceropolis, Glob and my friends Darren and Jared (those guys rule, especially since they gave me a ride home!). I walked to this show, in a dress with all of my equipment in my backpack for over 3.5 miles but all my friends with cars said they couldn’t do it cause it was too dangerous, people suck. Naan Violence ruled as usual.

Sugarsplat, Claudzilla, The Terminals, Tripp Nasty
Note: I’ll be showing my short film STONER WITCHES this evening and playing a rare musical set
Where: Larimer Lounge
Doors at 7, show at 8, $8 to get in.
Notes: Somehow on my walk to the show I lost my driver’s license, dam. The Terminals ruled, absolutely and totally. Free jazz, riffing freakout with my favorite living saxophone player Becca Mhalek plays in The Terminals so I am a little biased but honestly, if you get the chance go see them. Claudzilla played some xxxmas inspired verses and some traditional Americana by The Cramps and Jason Molina, superb. The evening ended with Sugarsplat whose overall rock-n-roll attitude blew me away along with their custom light show, whoa!!! (and good luck to Pepe from Sugarsplat, be safe on your deployment dude!) Super fun night overall and I gotta say the sound/PA system at the Larimer Lounge ruled. I played two songs that night and I have never heard myself so good on a stage in Denver ever before. I just want to play there all of the time now because of this.

Nerve Beats (Hawaii), Mailman Land and CP-208
At: Mutiny Information Café (Denver, CO.)

August 27, 2015
The Piers , Hillbilly Riot and Tripp Nasty
At: Skylark Lounge (Denver, CO.)
Starts: 9:00PM (Free)
Notes: The Piers have one of the best guitarists I have ever seen. Her name is Molly and she rules! The Piers have a sort of early California new wave sound, real fun stuff. Hillbilly Riot from Idaho Springs, Colorado were not what I expected. I thought rockabilly when I heard their name and I was pretty far off. A mix of metal and surf rock more aptly describes their sound. I closed off the night talking about how fate and destiny are crap with examples from my favorite movie, Damien: Omen II and a story about how I got invited to join the Sun City Girls after Charles Goucher passed away. Life is chaotic and weird, thank goodness!
August 5, 2015
Helicopter Copter, The Mourning Sickness and Tripp Nasty
At:The Walnut Room (Denver, CO.)
Starts: 7:00PM ($5.00)
Note: I was a last minute replacement for the great and mighty Patrick Porter (one weirdo replaces another, I guess…). I ended up selling all the merchandise I brought to this show (records, lathe cuts and postcards) and The Walnut Room gave me a whole pitcher of beer to myself. It was pretty cool!
July 9, 2015
CP 208, Ghost Bones (Hot Springs, ARK), Pythian Whispers
At: Mutiny Information Cafe (2 S. Broadway Denver, CO.)
Starts at: 7:00PM (donation for traveling band)
Notes: This show was awesome! Ghost Bones was great, CP 208 played a short and totally sweet set, Pythian Whispers was like Purple Vuh live in concert in 1977. Really fun evening!

Notes: Bongo Fury was the folk-noise band I led for 5 years in Denver. This was our second and longest tour done in the early summer of 2010. We played in Albuquerque, Tucson, L.A., Oakland, Portland and Seattle (at a show Alan Bishop from the Sun City Girls set up which was great because we got to play with one of my noise heroes, The Climax Golden Twins. Bongo Fury was a great band and we had a great time on this tour.) This L.A. show was real special for me because I got to play with one of my overall heroes and one heck of a person, I.E.

los angeles , ca 90004)
