- Scott H. Biram plays the Triple Nickel Tavern this Friday.
One upcoming show which should not be missed is Scott H. Biram’s appearance at the Triple Nickel Tavern on March 24. Biram appeared at the Black Sheep in 2015 and performed a fantastic set, but it was, unfortunately, a rather sparsely attended Thursday night, which means plenty of local music fans missed out on the bluesy, Texas-based one-man-band’s mix of outlaw country, punk and metal. Also performing are fellow Texan Jesse Dayton, Alien Knife Fight, Noble Youth and Mark Wilkins.
The following night, March 25, will find yet another Texan performing in town, this time over at the Black Sheep. The “supersonic, intergalactic heavy rock trio” Mothership is led by brothers Kyle and Kelly Juett and Judge Smith. The Dallas-based band takes its love of Black Sabbath, UFO and ZZ Top in simultaneously more sludgy and spacey directions. Joining Mothership are Portland’s Black Pussy, whose name consistently brings a cloud of controversy, locals Dirty Kings, and, in keeping with this week’s continuing theme of brotherly love, the brothers Sean and Bryan Ostrow’s punk/metal quintet Blighter.
Of course, if you’re in the mood for something a little gentler, don’t forget that Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Judy Collins will be performing at the Pikes Peak Center on Thursday, March 23.
