Jack's Smirking Revenge

A good friend of mine, Devito, from back home in California told me about this band once called Wolves&Wolves&Wolves&Wolves.  I don’t normally ever get around to listening to music suggestions (sorry guys, I guess I’m stuck in my ways), but I’m very glad that I listened to these guys, especially because they went on tour and I got to see them on a Thursday night at our very own Seventh Circle Music Collective.

Stream: Jack’s Smirking Revenge Releases ‘The Lonesome Corroded West’ EP

Jack's Smirking Revenge

* featured photo by Wilson Photoworks A mere 5 months after their previous EP release, Jack’s Smirking Revenge is back with The Lonesome Corroded West. These three songs find the band at their tightest and exploring the dynamics of their songwriting as a three piece (Jack’s Smirking Revenge used to simply be the solo alias for songwriter Alex Pelissero). For anyone who’s followed the band’s progression, I don’t think the “maturity” of these songs come as a surprise. For those new to …

Arliss Nancy

I strongly believe that the DIY scene is the backbone of punk today.  Without DIY venues, many touring bands would not have a place to play while traveling through smaller cities, and many new or up and coming bands wouldn’t have a place to get their start.  Fortunately, Denver has one of the best DIY venues around in the Seventh Circle Music Collective – its sound quality, wall art, and general atmosphere lend their hands to making this a place …

Gallery: The Copyrights, Jack’s Smirking Revenge and Lawsuit Models in Denver

The Copyrights

A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of stepping out to the Hi-Dive in Denver to see The Copyrights, Jack’s Smirking Revenge and Lawsuit Models. It was a “school night” and not a ton of people were out but this didn’t make a difference in the energy each band brought to the stage. Fantastic show and tons of singalongs. The sound system at Hi-Dive was also top-notch. Great job on the upgrade guys! Do yourself a favor and …
