There are few bands currently touring that combine elements of jazz, blues, southern rock, and good ol’ Americana as effortlessly and beautifully as The Wood Brothers. With Oliver Wood’s pseudo-southern roots and bassist brother Chris Wood’s extensive free jazz experience in Medeski, Martin, and Wood, the group is undeniably one of the most raw, heartfelt, and genuine bands on the live music circuit today.Following a heavy, folky, punk-laced opening set from Indiana rockers (and Stanley Hotel legends), Murder By Death, the brothers took the stage at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, joined by their other third, multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix. The sun began to set on an unseasonably warm Friday night, and with a quiet hello and little fanfare, Oliver broke into the certifiable classic, “Postcards from Hell,” off of their 2008 release, Loaded. The song seems to be one of Oliver’s favorites, and tells the story of a man with a deep passion for the blues and for music. It’s not the first time the band has played this song at Red Rocks, yet it seems to strike a new chord each and every go around. In our current, rather unstable political climate, the song seems to speak to our beliefs and our commitments, serving as the perfect opening tune. The trio followed with “Tried and Tempted” off their debut album Ways Not to Lose. The stripped-down, bass-led groove got the crowd moving, and the band quickly slipped into another rocker, “This Is It,” from their latest release, One Drop of Truth.The group kept chugging along, playing the fan-favorite “Keep Me Around” off of 2013’s The Muse back-to-back with the classic “Mary Anna.” The chorus of “Mary Anna” featured a new, slightly faster, funkier arrangement that seemed to derive itself from many of the groovier, keyboard-led songs on One Drop of Truth. Perfectly transitioning into said new material, “Sparkling Wine” and the title track, “One Drop of Truth” came next, both keeping the crowd on their feet. Determined to keep the energy up, the brothers pulled out “Snake Eyes” from their 2015 album featuring Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, Paradise. Oliver’s rhythmic strumming and Jano’s steady beat allowed the song to really open up, and giving Chris a chance to dance around with his bass, both musically and literally. Following “Snake Eyes,” they continued to criss-cross their catalog, playing “Loaded,” “Shoo Fly Pie,” “Happiness Jones,” and “That’s Where My Baby Might Be.”Near the end of the set, Oliver took a moment to point out that he saw “a show at Red Rocks” as a 19-year-old kid from Boulder, Colorado. He noted, “I didn’t really realize how important it was at the time,” or something along those lines. The band then dropped into a blistering, original rendition of the late Tom Petty’s “You Wreck Me.” Bearing an eerie resemblance to Petty, Oliver played the part perfectly, both vocally and musically, mentioning afterward, “oh yeah, it was Tom Petty!” Following the tribute to a guy who has to be one of Wood’s southern heroes, the band wrapped up the set with a sing-along take on their hit single, “Luckiest Man” before ending the night with “Honey Jar.”Not to be forgotten, The Wood Brothers were followed by California’s own The Devil Makes Three. Playing their own pioneering blend of bluegrass, folk, gypsy jazz, and Appalachian hick-pop, the band played to an absolutely ecstatic crowd that was eager to see them after too much time away. Playing a set heavy with tunes off of their eponymous album, “All Hail” and a spacey, feedback-laden “Chained to the Couch” came early in the set. “Hallelu,” “Graveyard,” and the quintessential “Old No. 7” closed out the evening, leaving the fans with little left to desire.Generally, early season Red Rocks shows can always be hit or miss with the weather and the music, but Friday night proved to be an absolute barnburner. With an incredible summer calendar ahead, it’s looking to be another divine summer at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.Setlist: The Wood Brothers | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 5/25/18Postcards From Hell, Tried and Tempted, This Is It, Keep Me Around, Mary Anna, Sparkling Wine, One Drop of Truth, Snake Eyes, Loaded, Shoo Fly Pie, Happiness Jones, That’s Where My Baby Might Be, You Wreck Me*, Luckiest Man, Honey Jar* – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers cover Photo: Chris Klein The Wood Brothers, The Devil Makes Three | Red Rocks | Morrison, CO| 5/28/18 | Photos: Chris Klein Load remaining images

And we want to win.” Luc Robitaille, who just played his final game Monday for the Kings before retiring, said, “You can’t fire every player, so first it was the coach, then Dave.” Leiweke has asked Taylor, who has spent 29 years with the Kings as a player or executive, to remain with the organization in another capacity. Taylor, 50, has been the president and GM for the past nine years. Leiweke also has asked O’Flaherty to remain with the organization. Gilmore will be reassigned within Anschutz Entertainment Group, which counts the Kings among the sports teams it owns. Taylor, saying he had no regrets and that he understood the decision to replace him, wants to remain with the Kings if a “fit” within the organization can be found. He has one year left on his contract. Taylor said the fact the Kings haven’t made the postseason was the obvious reason he lost his job. “You have to get in the playoffs and you have to do some damage in the playoffs. That’s what our job is,” he said. The Kings, who led the Pacific Division on Jan. 8, were 37-28-5 and tied for seventh in the Western Conference when Murray was fired March 21. They went 5-7 under Torchetti to wind up 10th in the conference, two spots out of the playoffs. Taylor, a five-time NHL All-Star, was a member of the Kings’ 1993 Stanley Cup Finals team, when they were beaten by Montreal in their only trip to the championship round. He earned mixed reviews for his job as GM. He traded key players or allowed them to leave as free agents, several high draft picks failed to pan out and the team never had consistently solid goaltending. This season, center Sean Avery didn’t play after club officials told him he had caused one distraction too many with his verbal outbursts. All-Star center Jeremy Roenick, acquired during the offseason, was frequently injured and failed to make an impact. Right wing Valerie Bure missed the entire season because of back and hip surgeries. Kings captain Mattias Norstrom said, “It’s a tough day. We’re all part of the team, the players, the coaches and the GM. Now guys are getting fired. “It’s a reality of the game.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! EL SEGUNDO – President and general manager Dave Taylor was among those dismissed by the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday during a major housecleaning. The moves came after the Kings stumbled down the stretch of the season and failed to make the playoffs for the third consecutive year. The entire coaching staff, including interim head coach John Torchetti, will not have their contracts renewed. But Torchetti, who took over when Andy Murray was fired last month, was told he can interview for the job when the new president and GM is named. Kevin Gilmore, assistant GM, and Bill O’Flaherty, director of player personnel, also were relieved of their duties.
