Rachel and I went to the Gomez concert last night at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver. It was a hell of a show. Their opening act was Rodrigo y Gabriela. If you haven't heard this group, listen to them; they are awesome! I have never seen such amazing guitar playing. Rachel and I both bought their CD at the show.

Then, of course, Gomez. As expected, they were a lot of fun. They played for almost 2 hours solid, which is not bad, considering it was a co-bill. They came out in costume and ended up swapping costume pieces throughout the show. At one point, one of them was a redneck pope holding a shepherd's staff. Rachel and I were front-and-center, right on the rail. Towards the end of the concert, they started throwing their costume pieces into the crowd. I ended up with the lead singer's cape.

The next band up was Robert Randolph and the Family Band. We were less than impressed and left early.

Good times.

What, no link for the Family Band?

I didn't like their music. Why would I link them? They're lucky I even put their name here!

I agree with Toby, they were not something that I particularly enjoyed. I got the fairie wand that one of the guitar players at stuck in the strings in the neck of the guitar! We got almost all the cool stuff. I wanted the pair of bunny ears, but they threw them more toward the middle.
