PS I Love You at hi-dive, 10/17/10

With Van Louvin and Paean
10.17.10 | hi-dive

Van Louvin opened this show. Those who have been around the Denver scene long enough would recognize its members from some of best indie pop bands of the past decade, namely Kent Phillips and Al Rich from Thank God for Astronauts, Dave Reeves from the Maybellines, and Eric Van Leuven from Breezy Porticos.The band offered up a similar brand of power pop purveyed by Thank God for Astronauts. A solid, straight ahead pop band is very much a welcome thing these days when that sort of thing doesn't exist much anymore.
