Concert Reviews

Mumford & Sons at the Ogden, 10/27/2010

King Charles • Cadillac Sky
10.27.10 | Ogden Theatre

What happens when a band plays a concert at a venue that's smaller than what it theoretically could sell out? Well, for starters, you can scalp your $20 ticket for 75 bucks, no questions asked. And for another, the crowd, fearful that they'll be relegated to the spot behind the seven foot tall guy, packs in like sardines for the opener.

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.
Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
