Virtual Concert of the Month – January 2021
So 2020 pretty much sucked. 2021 isn’t starting much better. Damn you Covid.
If we can’t see them live, we can at least watch a virtual rock concert sitting at home.
With everything that is happening in the world right now, it might seem that losing the experience of live music concerts is not on the top of the priority list. And that would be true. Keeping our loved ones safe and caring for our fellow human beings is far more important.
At the same time, it is also very sad that musicians have lost one of their main platforms, the live performance in front of a paying crowd. Besides the musicians loss of income, the fans are no longer able to directly show their appreciation for the artist and their craft. For those of us of a certain age, some of our best memories revolved around getting a prime position in front of the stage where we could enjoy the sweaty experience of getting our eardrums punished. It was all worth the potential hearing loss to have the sometimes once in a lifetime opportunity.
Someday, hopefully sooner than later, we will be able to have this experience once again. Until we do, at least we have YouTube, and can enjoy some past concerts from the safety and comfort of our own abode. We plan to choose a concert monthly that we particularly enjoyed (virtually). We hope you will like it as well.
Big Head Todd and the Monsters : Red Rocks 2008
BHTM is one of our favorite bands to see live, never disappoints. Since the band is based in Colorado, they play Red Rocks on a regular basis (at least until 2020). This is a concert series from 2008, the band at their best. 25 years and still going strong, they have stood the test of time with their tasty mix of rock and blues, with touches of pop and country. Although their albums are good, they are even better in concert, with Todd Park Mohr’s tasty guitar licks and strong vocals backed by a rock solid rhythm section, with additional spice from Jeremy Lawton on slide guitar and keyboards.
