The Yard Dogs were born out of the saloon vaudeville that toured the Wild West in the 1800s, but it carries a contemporary edge, with an eight-piece rock-and-roll band that Cotton promises can get loud. Last years Halloween bash in Denver with DeVotchKa was no exception, and Cotton says tonights show at the Bluebird Theater is the followup. Doors open at 8 p.m. at 3317 East Colfax Avenue for the sixteen-and-over show. Tickets are $22 in advance, $25 at the door. For information, go to www.bluebirdtheater.net or www.yarddogsroadshow.com.
