Review: Kimya Dawson and Aesop Rock at Summit Music Hall, 8/21/11

KIMYA DAWSON & AESOP ROCK at SUMMIT | 8.21.11
Toward the end of her set, Kimya Dawson brought Aesop Rock back to the stage for one of the most powerful performances in Denver this year. Although "Walk Like Thunder" has been available as a free download for close to five months now in advance of Thunder Thighs release this October and so we all knew what to expect, the depth of imagery and levels of emotional resonance that Dawson and Aesop Rock were able to express likely didn't leave a dry eye in the house -- unless folks just didn't happen to be listening, for whatever reason.
