Last night some friends and I went to the Soiled Dove to hear a college friend, Rob Drabkin, play a show. Rob is pretty well-known on the Denver music scene and as much as I like to support him as a fellow Trinity alumnus, I’m not the biggest fan of his actual music (or crowd). It’s all a little too hippie, jam-band-y for me. Rob’s talented and I like his songwriting, but I don’t know… the hippies dancing with hoolahoops at all of his shows kind of kills me.
BUT, I did discover a guy named Kevin Mileski who opened for Rob that I REALLY enjoyed! He splits his time between Chicago and Colorado, and I liked his guitar style a LOT. I went up to him after his set to buy a CD and asked if he knew of my favorite Austin-based musician, Monte Montgomery, (which he did of course) and we ended up talking about guitar and music for a bit. Super nice guy!
