Action Bronson at Cervantes, 11/29/12


The building wasn't full, but it certainly wasn't empty either when Action Bronson stepped onto stage. The crowd was a little cold. Clouds of ganja smoke floated across the room. Everyone was a little subdued. When Bronsolino started rhyming, there was that requisite anticipatory energy, and it picked up briefly, but it just never took hold -- not for lack of trying by Bronson. At first he gave a valiant effort, but then he got a little peeved, and it showed. But he trudged on. It's hard to be certain, but closing out at 12:45 after only forty minutes, including a reluctant encore, then storming off in a huff, it seemed a lot like he quit on his Denver fans.
