Governor John Hickenlooper celebrated his re-election earlier this week with a formal inauguration ceremony followed by a dinner at the Fillmore Auditorium and a concert at the Ogden Theatre.

We'll have much more on the latter in next week's issue of Westword. It was an improbable arrangement of some of the state's most well-known musicians playing a relatively small venue, and it was a testament to the sincerity of Hickenlooper's enthusiasm for music. For now, relive some of the night's highlights through the lens of photographer Scott Lentz (you can view the full slideshow here).

Here's your governor, Colorado, playing banjo with String Cheese Incident and clearly not having any fun at all.
