This is Elwood. Elwood the dog. The shirt he is sporting is that of local country outfit Denver, who perform tonight at Holocene. Denver includes some of Portland's better-known musicians (including Eric Earley of Blitzen Trapper, and Tom Bevitori of Alela Diane's band Wild Divine, and many others), but recordings of the band have not always been easy to come by. That's why it's a privilege to post this live track, recorded at the Triple Door in Seattle on March 16. If you get the song's title, you get it. If you don't, you don't.

LISTEN:

Denver - "Hot Denver #1" (live at the Triple Door)

Denver play tonight at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison), and then again on Sunday at Valentine's (232 SW Ankeny). The Valentine's show is rumored to be Denver's last for a while, probably because Alela Diane and band are hitting the road this spring.
