"Personally, I think our songwriting has become better," he adds. "It seems on the first album we were kind of throwing songs together. We were writing songs, but I think our writing got tighter on this album."

"Although the spelling is funny, I decided on that spelling, because if we were going to do a Dirty Harry reference, 'Harry' isn't 'hairy,' like he has hair; he's 'Harry,' as in his name is 'Harry,'" Wallace says. "I think this album is dirtier and hairier than the first album. Grittier. Certainly more rockin'."

Nothing like saving the best for last. As much as the members of the River Drifters have grown, they've also realized it's time to move on. So after six years together, they decided to end on a high note with the release of Dirtier Harryer, which will also serve as the band's final show. "We spent two years working on this damn album," says Magnuson of the group's impending farewell. "If we don't get to play it in front of people, then we're going to be pissed."

After this weekend, the River Drifters will become an actual legend.

"In Denver, it seems that most bands have several last shows," concludes Wallach with a wry smile. "Maybe we'll end up being one of those."
