At the moment, Denver-based band OneRepublic’s new record “Native” is slaying charts all over the world.
“Native” is No. 1 in Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines, according to Interscope, the band’s label. It’s also Top 5 in 23 countries including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It’s Top 20 in the U.K., Ireland, Poland and Russia.
Some of us don’t have the privilege of littering the nighttime streets of Denver for New Year’s Eve. We could be short on cash, don’t have a sitter sitter, a lack of planning or a combination of all. Don’t fret, the booze is much cheaper at your house. Trust me. Who needs amateur hour when you have Carson Daly and Ryan Seacrest to ring in the new year? So, relax and enjoy the festivities from your own abode with the help of Reverb’s New Year’s Eve 2012 TV guide.
It used to be Denver bands would move to New York or Los Angeles. To be around other musicians. To be surrounded by music industry. To find like-minded artists. To get signed to an influential label. To be exposed to that big-city art aesthetic.

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.
