Notes: This show began with three differing versions of the traditional song Down by Blackwaterside. As the lyrics go it's a love story with a, "when hell freezes over " twist. The Zeppelin version features Jimmy Page on guitar and Viram Jasani on tabla.

Further along through the show hints of the devil, Mexican wrestling and ragas reminded of the previous Halloween night's full moon and trickery. My favorites of the show, all the Blackwaterside traks, trak 5 by Phosphorescent, trak 9 Singing Songs Unsung, and the final song by Replicast.

All in all an interesting mix of songs and to top it off a great after-the-storm day. Post show at our old haunt the Rio Grande. A sort of reunion with Ukulele Loki who we don't see as often as in the past. After a few hours of top secret conversation and people watching we got out into the dwaining afternoon daylight. Stay tuned for the next installment of Route 78 West.

PLAN ahead for Japandroids at the Larimer Lounge, November 22.
