magicgravy Live at Quixote's True Blue on November 15, 2012.

Flowing compositions, some with more organization than others, gripped the small but attentive crowd. MagicGravy took off pacing itself and building up momentum with every electric sounding strike on the acoustic guitar from Dan Lebowitz (ALO). Opposite Lebo was bass master and local favorite, Garrett Sayers (GS3), reading every move like a machine. To round out the rhythm section and the trio, Dave Watts (The Motet) beat the shit out of the drums with precision and groove. Together the trio explored the vastness of their blank canvas, as they slowly began to fill it with colors and shapes alike. The small crowd grew in size and seemed to correspond with the growth of the musical energy. Before long Quixote's was packed with folks in search if a some gravy.

Lebo thrives in MagicGravy. With seemingly limitless ability on the guitar, he tore through progression after progression, captivating the Denver crowd. Many of his licks sounded familiar, most notably "Tom's Diner," where as many sounded altogether unique. Garrett also seems to really enjoy MagicGravy and thrive in its possibilities. Two sets of ripping genre-bending music from the rare and special project highlighted the evening, while the new Quixote's set the perfect backdrop for a fantastic first night of the grand opening weekend. The icing on the cake was the welcoming of Ray White (Frank Zappa) to the stage to close the show with some energetic vocals and a excited response from the packed room.

Chalk it up for another night of magic in Denver, though this magic came with a side of gravy and a new location for Quixote's True Blue!
