    Stray Cats

    Year: 1979

    Runtime: 1 hr 20 min

    When the Stray Cats rolled into Montreux in July of 1981 they were one of the hottest properties around. They had 3 hit singles and a UK top 10 album already under their belts along with a string of headlining concerts, all of which had come since their relocation from New York to London in 1980. The band's combination of original songs and rockabilly classics with a punk attitude and style had caught the moment to perfection. Added to this were their considerable musical accomplishments and knack for songwriting. All in all it was a heady concoction and the crowd in Montreux reacted with near hysterical excitement, something rarely seen in what is usually a polite and reserved audience. This is the Stray Cats at their peak.

  • Live at Red Rocks: Day 1, Part I

    Widespread Panic

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 1 hr 6 min

    In the first of three sold out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Widespread Panic, currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, dazzled devoted fans with an old-school show that lasted close to three hours.

    It seemed appropriate that they kicked off the show with "Postcards," with its line: This town is nuts, my kind of place, I dont want to leave. Given the love the band and fans have for Red Rocks shows, it sometimes feels like they could simply play every summer show there and the fans would journey from around the country to see them.

    On "Ribs and Whiskey," lead guitarist Jimmy Herring picked piercing trills over lead vocalist John Bells sultry, lazy slide playing while bassist Dave Schools laid down a funky groove underneath. Out of a long jam, percussionist Domingo Sunny Ortiz took a little solo and then locked in with Schools on the intro to the instrumental, "Party At Your Mama's House."

    As the band closed out with a fiery "Radio Child," Bell stepped up and said they'd see everybody tomorrow night. The amphitheater then got turned into a disco, as the house lights mimicked a disco ball and the PA blared Michael Jacksons "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," a perfect backing track for fans to dance down to their cars.

    Widespread Panic is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary
    A band that doesn't repeat set lists and likes to stretch things out, you'll never know which show will be THE show that every fan will wish they had been at. Saturday night, their second of a three-night run at Red Rocks, Widespread Panic hit higher heights than they did the previous night.
    By the time the band took the stage at 7:50 p.m., the energy among the fans was electric. Panic wasted no time delivering the goods, opening with a one-two punch of "Sometimes" and "North." Dave Schools stepped up with a bass break during the former, and lead guitarist Jimmy Herring and keyboardist John "JoJo" Hermann traded singing solos and rolling fills on the latter.
