Talking Born in the Flood, Tennis, Churchill and more with Pat and Nate Meese

Born in the Flood @ The Gothic Theater 12/21/12

When Nathaniel Rateliff and Joe Pope decided to bring back their old Denver rock band Born in the Flood for the annual holiday show this year, they needed a guitarist and a drummer.

And when they took the stage at the Gothic Theatre on Friday, it should have surprised nobody in the local music community to see the musically inclined Meese brothers, Pat and Nate, backing them up.

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.”
