Slim Cessna's Auto Club
While Slim Cessna's Auto Club got its start in these parts just over two decades ago, the band usually only plays here a few times a year. Slim hasn't lived in Denver since moving to Rhode Island in 2000 (and later to Pittsburgh), and guitarist Dwight Pentacost lives in Boston. But when the Auto Club comes through, it has no trouble kicking up the dust with its gripping live shows. On its most recent effort, 2011's Unentitled, the band doesn't steer too far from its tried-and-true combo of dark country and gothic Americana. As a collection, the album stands out not just as one of the Auto Club's finest efforts, but also as perhaps its most accessible release to date.
