Zoo found out from a friendly barmaid to Paris that The Walkmen (one of my fav bands) was having a free'ish show at Twist and Shout records on Colfax here in Denver last night. Hell, yeah. They played for about 40 minutes and it was fucking awesome. Skyler Skjelset from Fleet Foxes was standing in for Peter Bauer, as his wife had just had a baby in NYC the day before. Great set full of stuff from the new album Heaven, plus many old fans.

I was fortunate to have a small adventure as a side trip on my way down the the Great sAnd Dunes National Park. I met a wonderful, friendly fellow traveler in a coffee shop who invited me to lunch in Crestone, CO. After lunch, we headed out past all of the religious retreats along the base of the mountain and up to the Tashi Gomang Stupa - a Tibetian Retreat that overlooks the stunning view of the valley valley below.

I'm an atheist and found this to be a fortunate place to find inspiration and gratitude. Worth a side trip if you are passing through. Take an SUV, 4-wheel drive or expect a good hike up there :)
