GUEST POST: THE ROCK REPORT: MICHAEL DEAN DAMRON HOUSE CONCERT

Our good buddy, Chris Green, recently booked Mike Damron for a house show and asked if I’d be interested in posting some of the video from it.

I BLEED JUST LIKE YOU: AN INTRODUCTION TO MICHAEL DEAN DAMRON

MICHAEL DEAN DAMRON – FATHER'S DAY

This is Michael’s third album w/o his former Portland, Oregon bandmates, I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House. His first cd, A Perfect Day For A Funeral, was a toned down exceptionally personal affair, while his second, Bad Days Ahead, was more of a midway point between ICLASOB and A Perfect Day For A … Continue reading “MICHAEL DEAN DAMRON – FATHER'S DAY”

“I wanted to do more things musically that this band was incapable of,” comments Damron on his decision to break up the band. “I want to write more rock songs, yeah, but I also want to write country songs, more folk-y songs, and other stuff, stuff the band wasn’t willing to do.

Mishka Shubaly – Alcoholica

I met Mishka Shubaly last year in Denver when I snuck in to town from a gig I was working in Greeley to see Fernando Viciconte and Michael Dean Damron.

Richmond Fontaine – “You Can’t Go Back If There’s Nothing To Go Back To”

Sometimes I’m just late to the party. When I was in high school I figured out that I was in love with a girl about two days before I found out I was going to be moving out of town. I just never let myself notice her until it was too late. That brings me … Continue reading “Richmond Fontaine – “You Can’t Go Back If There’s Nothing To Go Back To””

Hey buddies! Let me start this the way I start most of my relationships, with an apology. I’ve been slacking on making a first post for 9b, sorry.
