Back Door Slam 10-03-2008 recap w/audio

Friday October 3, 2008 I went to see Back Door Slam. The venue was The Hotel Utah, and I had never been there before.

The place turned out to be nothing but a little bar with a stage and two tiny audience spaces: one on the floor and one on a balcony above the stage. Both audience spaces were hardly larger than the stage itself. The guy at the door said that the place sold out…120 tickets.

Being in that place was more like being on the stage with the band than being in the audience. Very cool.

They opened with Outside Woman Blues. There was a problem with the amp and another had to be brought in before the next song. And that’s kinda how the night went: It was a night of blistering music in a small space with some technical problems that, to me anyway, just lent more charm to the evening.

I also have to say that I have never met a nicer bunch of people than the fans I met at this show.

And the show was great. I will never forget the blur of Davy’s hands on the guitar that night… it was something else. Amazing. The real deal.

Set list, with some audio samples from the show, recorded by yours truly:

1) Outside Women Blues (Cream)

2) Heavy On My Head

3) Riding With The King (John Hiatt)

4) Gotta Leave

5) Almost Cut My Hair (Crosby, Stills and Nash)

6) Tear Down The Walls (new original song)

7) Come Home (It seems Davy kicked so much ass on this song he actually injured himself. Somebody in the audience has the bloody guitar pic to prove it…)

8 ) Hoochie Coochie Man (Willie Dixon)

9) Back Door Slam (Robert Cray)

10) Country Girl (new original song)

11) Won’t Let It happen (new original song)

12) It’ll All Come Around

13) What In The World

14) Been Down So Long>>unknown>>Red House

Downloads of the show in Flac or MP3 will be along soon.

Also, do go see my friend Boolz for a download of the Denver BDS show that happened earlier in the week!
