Connoisseurs of live music will tell you that something is lost when an artist becomes popular enough to perform in an arena. While this may be true at some places, it's certainly not the case at Broomfield's 1STBANK Center, where the sound is pretty well dialed in virtually anywhere you sit. The venue, which sits halfway between Denver and Boulder, has hosted a variety of acts, from Radiohead and Portishead to Kelly Clarkson and the Black Keys. Shows of this caliber feel far more intimate here than you'd expect.
