The Dirtbombs live at Larimer Lounge

Tonight was a reminder of why I love seeing good bands in small venues. Diddlefinger and I went to the Dirtbombs show at the Larimer Lounge, and watching all those white people cheer and adore Mick Collins (lead singer of the Dirtbombs) you'd think he was Barack Obama.

He was the f*ckin man tonight and he rocked the house! For those of you unfamiliar with the Dirtbombs, wikipedia describes them as a "garage punk band notable for blending diverse influences such as garage rock, punk rock and soul while featuring a dual bass guitar and dual drum". Spin magazine listed the Dirtbombs as one of the 25 greatest live bands (ranked #10). That's saying a lot considering the over saturation of music and all the big name bands on the airwaves today.
Tonight was one of those magical rock show nights when all the stars aligned, the beer went down like water, the band was tight, the boys shook their moneymakers, while the rock girls bopped their heads and shook their booty.
The show was amazing, energetic, and a rockin good time!
