As I awoke that Sunday, there was not much desire to trek up to Red Rocks to see a group that I was only vaguely familiar with. I had had one of those horrible, no good, very bad weeks and did not think the Pixies were capable of solving any of my issues. However, knowing that I had only heard pleasant statements about the Pixies, as well as the fact that my brother had extended his v
I made a deal with my wife that if I could get the kids to bed, so that everything at the ol' homestead was settled and peaceful, then I could go to the show. So I went, though I was delayed enough by my two daughters that I arrived at the tail end of Dark Star Orchestra's first set. DSO is not just your average
