One of the Best Denver Bands

There are many many bands out there that have awful names. Most of those bands are, in turn, cursed by the music gods and doomed to be completely Lame. One of the very few exceptions is the Denver based local folk jamboree Pee-Pee. Maxing out at about 10 members, with usually missing no more than 1 member per performance, makes them one of the biggest local bands I've ever ... witnessed.

They're shows have been described to me as religious experiences, which I entirely agree with. After seeing them even once, one soon becomes more than familiar with how utterly amazing a Pee-Pee show can be. Haunting, soulful, sing-a-long-y, footstomping music fanatics in Denver are no stranger to the folk ensemble, and for good reason.

They recently did live set on a Colorado radio station, which I happen to have for all you nice people. Some of the stuff here isn't as amazing as their studio stuff, so I recommend checking out their myspace and downloading (for free) a couple of their songs (they're nice enough to be allowing all you pretty people to take the songs they worked so hard on for no money at all. Do so). I just put titles I thought fit for some of their songs, because, since I'm not, like, close friends or really even friends with anyone in the band, I don't know the titles to most their unrecorded songs. #'s 8,9, 12, 14, 15, and 16 are all the correct titles thou.
