Live Review: Colorado Rising Flood Relief Benefit at 1STBANK Center, 10/27/13

COLORADO RISING at 1STBANK CENTER | 10/27/13 By the time Dave Matthews took the stage last night during the Colorado Rising flood relief benefit show at 1STBANK Center, it was tough to spot any empty seats. Matthews had the capacity crowd on its feet during his entire set, but even his obvious star power didn't overshadow the overwhelmingly intimate and local feel of the evening. This show was clearly a community affair made up of Colorado musicians, all coming together for a highly worthy cause benefiting the people of their home state.
