Photos of Kip Winger and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at Boettcher Concert Hall, 01/18/13 (review)January 21st, 2013
Friday night in Boettcher Concert Hall, heavy metal hero C. F. Kip Winger and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra demonstrated that opposites can mix.
Friday’s concert at the Ogden Theatre brought back the Flobots (who performed at the first Denver Acoustic Christmas in December of 2011), newcomer Zach Heckendorf and Big Head Todd and The Monsters; who unbeknownst to fans performed with a very ill Todd Park Mohr. Mohr, who according to band members had been feeling sick all day, was rushed out of the venue immediately following their set to receive medical attention.
DeVotchKa and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra may have seemed like an unlikely musical match just a year ago, but their indie-meets-institution collaboration produced two solid concerts in 2012, one at Boettcher Concert Hall last February and another at Red Rocks in September. Next up: The album “DeVotchKa Live with the Colorado Symphony” due Tuesday.
