The band did a pretty good cover of the Killers’ “Mr Brightside.” Their bass player had broken his arm in New Mexico, so their stage manager/guitar tech filled in for him. After the show they stuck around to meet and greet with the fans. I managed to squeeze in and ask them what had been the best part of their time in Colorado. Their comments were: The really nice people and the skiing (they’d spent the day before in Breckenridge). Travis Clark commented on the gorgeous postcard views, which is a nice change from the flatlands of Florida.
The openers earned their checks that night as they whipped those teenage girls into a frenzy. The Cab really got the crowd revved up. When they broke into the song “Bounce,” the kids went crazy. At one point a bouncer had to swoop in and rescue this petite, young girl from swaying of the mob.
I learned one important lesson that night: Don’t ever get between teenage girls and their boy bands.
The Maine were up next. The only thing I really remember from their set is that the kept commenting on how cute the audience was, which only seemed to make the crowd (the girls specifically) go wild.
