Arcade Fire with LCD Soundsystem, September 17, Red Rocks Amphitheatre: "Everyones always talked about how magical Arcade Fire is and, up until now, Ive never really been able to completely co-sign that. Sure, I dug the records, but I was never what youd consider a breathless fan. Well, after Monday nights show -- which will go down as the best concert Ive witnessed at Red Rocks since Radiohead and Beta Band in June 2001 -- Ive since repented of my sin and been cleansed by the Fire." -- Dave Herrera (Slide Show)
And one I threw in because seeing a cover band recreate an iconic concert to a larger crowd than was at the original is just too charged with ironic pleasure to pass up.
