Every once in a while, the Rock Gods will bless those of us that live in Southern Colorado and bring a good show to Colorado Springs, so those of us down here don’t have to drive all the way up to Denver. Saturday night’s show brought us Florida’s Nonpoint, Pennsylvania’s Candlelight Red, and Arizona’s Digital Summer to the Black Sheep. For anyone who has never been to the Black Sheep, it is a tiny venue with a max capacity of 400 people and definitely gives you that “dive bar” feel. It’s a great venue to get up close with the bands that play there, and it has cheap bar prices. Tickets are usually significantly cheaper than the Denver shows, with this night’s being $12 in advance and $14 at the door. The venue started out only about a third full and was about half full by the time Nonpoint came on. So, it wasn’t too crowded, but I was expecting more people with a bigger band on a Saturday night.
Overall, it was a splendid rock show that came through Colorado Springs in a small intimate venue that allowed us to interact with the artists.
