Not So Silent Night 2012

Going into the big show at 1stBank Center on Thursday – which was the biggest headlining date fun. has ever played – I was genuinely excited.

As a critic, seeing the band for the first time. As a fan, who had only recently connected with its debut “Some Nights” (released in February) in the last three or four months. As a lover of melodic music, who was psyched to hear singer Nate Ruess’ voice in a live arena.

But as we walked out of the small suburban arena after a thoroughly energetic concert by Ruess and his bandmates, I had to admit it: “They’re not a great band. Yet.”

Of Monsters And Men @ The Ogden Theatre 4/28/2012

Of Monsters and Men will be descending on the Boulder/Denver area for the next two days. But before they arrived this week, the Icelandic folk-rock revivalists took over the “Chin’s” stage at “the Tonight Show” to perform “Mountain Song” (check it at the 37:41 mark) off of their fast moving album, “My Head is an Animal.” Look for the quintet to storm the Boulder Theater this evening (SOLD OUT) and open for fun. tomorrow at the 1stBank Center (SOLD OUT) as part of KTCL’s Not So Silent with local favorites, Churchill.

Churchill “secret show” at Local 46, 11/27/12 (photos, review)

Churchill @ Local 46

The loyal Denver audience that has followed local act Churchill over the last few years has always known that the band was destined for bigger stages than the Hi-Dive.

And thanks to the unstoppable single “Change,” the band is on fire – on terrestrial radio, on multiple satellite stations, on the road – and its new major label home A&M Octone couldn’t be happier.

As part of its prep work for a 13-date tour that starts Sunday in Minneapolis, Churchill played a “secret” show on Tuesday night at the north Denver bar Local 46. It was an amiable, locals-only crowd that packed the room for the lengthy set that had the band playing loose and friendly with its fans.
