It's almost quitin' time. What are you doing tonight? If it doesn't involve pounding beers at the Bluebird with your friends until you're Otis-drunk and seeing the most badass rock show of the year, cancel your plans right now! Seriously. Tonight, the venerable rock and roll warlords known as Machine Gun Blues will be taking the stage for the last time ever. If you've ever seen an MGB show, you know that mayhem follows these guys. And we expect absolutely nothing less tonight when the Gunners bid Denver adieu with the help of Ghost Buffalo, Mr. Pacman and the Nicotine Fits. Oh, and as a going away present, the boys will be unleashing their swan song recording as well. -- Dave Herrera
