Last Night review: Kings of Leon at Comfort Dental Amphitheater

Kings of Leon • Built to Spill • the Features
07.20.10 | Comfort Dental Amphitheater, Greenwood Village

In the pantheon of all time miserable shows, I'd rank last night's Kings of Leon show at Comfort Dental right up there with MGMT at Red Rocks last month, DeVotchKa's set at Monolith in 2008 and night two of the Fray's three-night stand at Red Rocks. The thing all of these concerts had in common -- besides the fact that all of them, with the exception of Kings, were at Red Rocks -- is the utterly convincing notion that Mother Nature can be one scornful, vindictive bitch when she wants to be.
