OneRepublic Denver Acoustic Christmas at Ogden, with Big Head Todd, 12/21/12


"The world could use a little more gospel music," declared OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder at the band's now-annual Denver Acoustic Christmas show. That quote pretty much summed up the message of hope and love for the evening. While everyone was already basking in the spirit of the season, the crowd at the Ogden received an unexpected gift: Although we were already expecting to hear music from Tedder and his friends, we had no idea that one of those friends would be John Oates, half of one of the coolest pop duos of all time and former owner of one of the best sweet, sweet 'staches ever to grace the cover of an album.
