In case you're not familiar with it, archive.org is a giant Internet archive of all kinds of stuff -- old websites, tons of free audio and video, etc. It's one of my favorite Internet sites, largely because of the absolutely ginormous collections of free music from netlabels and the even ginormouser collection of live shows. I just popped over to see if Born in the Flood had any shows archived there (to supplement my testimonial of their incredible power as a live band to a friend) and, while I didn't find any Flood (dudes, you should rectify that), I did find a slew of acts with strong Denver connections, like Reed Foehl (nine shows, including some here in town), Apples in Stereo (five shows, one local) and a show that I reviewed by Dark Meat at the hi-dive! I also know there are shows I saw by Spoon and Soul Coughing at Denver venues, and probably dozens more I don't know. It's an awesome resource for anyone looking for great music on the cheap -- and isn't that pretty much everyone? -- Cory Casciato
