Overcasters put together a great sound system for this show, and it made everyone sound better than usual. Light Travels Faster had a lively set that it played with a good balance of humor and focused intensity. As usual, the trio closed its set with a cover of the Stooges' "Search and Destroy." Christopher Rigel used his amp, the mike stand and the drums -- he probably would have used Todd Spriggs's head, too, if Spriggs had let him -- to beat the guitar frets for the chaotic ending of the song.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
