Ronnie Baker Brooks gets the Toad Tavern hoppin'

From Brendan's Pub to Ziggies to the Outlook in Boulder to the countless other joints that have supported the scene over the years, the blues have a long and storied history in Colorado. And from the looks of this lively crowd at the Toad Tavern, the scene continues to thrive. Over the past year or two, the Toad has quietly establishing itself as yet another viable hub for the blues. Looks like Ronnie Baker Brooks, seen here downing a shot of whiskey behind the bar during his set, put on one helluva show. The suburbs have the blues? Who would've guessed? [pineconer]
