Rateliff and his band the Night Sweats have had, we would say, a decent year — from late-night-TV appearances to an international tour to fans and radio stations belting out the "whoa-oh-oh" refrain of hit song "S.O.B." For this hometown hero, it's been nothing short of milestone after milestone.

The year 2015 will end for Rateliff in the most Denver way possible: The soul-singing man will belt out "The Star-Spangled Banner" from the turf of Sports Authority Field at Mile High to kick off Monday Night Football (and hopefully a much-needed Broncos' W).
If you don't have tickets to the game, the hi-dive will be hosting a viewing party. Even if you aren't a football fan, this is one pre-game every music fan should be tuned into. In the words of the hi-dive event page, "Come join us cheering on one guy who definitely does not suck and a bunch of other guys who will hopefully not suck."
