STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE JICKS at GOTHIC THEATRE | 2/12/14 During their time in Denver, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks were apparently staying in a hotel in Cherry Creek. We know this because Malkmus asked if anyone hung out there or skateboarded in Cherry Creek or went rafting in it. Malkmus engaged in this sort of dry humor throughout the show. Before "Jenny and The Ess Dog," for instance, Malkmus asked if anyone had come in from Wyoming. When some people yelled out in acknowledgement, he said, "We like Wyoming because we like black ice. We like the silent and deadly killer. We call it 'the lung cancer of the road.'"
