Old news because I purchased tix a few weeks back once I saw they were coming to town. I am very curious to see them live to see if they can bring it or if the album is a lot of fluff. The album is outstanding as jambase likes to remind everyone :)

i saw these guys open for iron and wine in november. outstanding performance. i noticed several dylan influences in their music and demeanor. i got to meet them after the show and they're all real friendly guys. do yourself a favor and catch one of their shows before iron and wine is opening for them.

Wow, WidespreadMule that must have been an amazingly killer show. Wish I could see those two together. I really dig Blitzen Trapper and wish them all the best on their road to stardom.

claystribe, pretty quick to judge. Opinions ALWAYS vary. Apparently, you JUST introduced yourself to this band. Now you tell everyone that you think that is band is "bad", "firmly" after listening to "quite a few songs". I am not sure if people would WANT to take your word. Music is better with an open mind.

Just these guys rock out...jam band...or are they a pop/harmony-type band? I def. like their sound...and the single they have out, but just wondering. Gonna try an see 'em in Denver or SLC.

raise your hand if you're just making erroneous comments to see how many thumbs up or down we can get... i keep hoping these comment boards will start being more intelligent, but it's simply not happening. that's a shame, especially when we're talking about a talented up and coming band like blitzen trapper. you really can't just listen to a few songs and jump to a conclusion with these guys, their albums are a work of art as a whole, and you must listen to the entire thing from start to finish to fully grasp the finely crafted moodiness.

this is jambase, where unfortunately people (like claytribe) get their own opinion, even if no one cares and it doesnt even make sense.
