Just as their first song was fading to a close, Mandolin Orange's Emily Frantz looked at the sold out Ogden Theatre and said, "I knew there were going to be 1600 of you here tonight, I just didn't know you were all going to be listening." And for the rest of the Thursday night, that's what the audience did, they listened, with rapt attention to a night of soaring folk music.

Taking Back Sunday stopped in Denver for the third time in less than a year on Wednesday night. The band has been touring relentlessly in support of its latest album, "Happiness Is." Having played the Ogden Theatre with the Used in April and Riot Fest Denver in September, Taking Back Sunday finally got its own headlining slot at the Summit Music Hall in Denver.

Standing six-foot-five, singer-songwriter Andrew Hozier-Byrne, aka Hozier, would tower over any crowd -- stage or not. Factor in the good four-foot lift of the stage at the sold out Ogden Theatre, and fans on Wednesday were dwarfed as they gathered to see the giant Irishman with a voice of equal prowess.

Two kings of the guitar, Eric Johnson and Mike Stern, held their subjects captive across a two-hour set on Thursday at the Gothic Theatre. It featured flying fingers, sliding notes and a vast assortment of tones ranging from the intricately delicate to the utterly destructive.

Not even a cold could stop English folk-rocker Ben Howard from delivering a dynamic set to the capacity Fillmore Auditorium in Denver on Saturday. Though he was admittedly not feeling well, Howard still gave the audience a selection of tracks from his debut album "Every Kingdom" and his 2014 sophomore studio album "I Forget Where We Were." Touring in support of his latest release -- which has seen commercial success overseas -- Howard will stop in Los Angeles and Portland later this month.
