Rusko, M80 Dubstation at the Ogden Theatre - 09.21.10

M80 Dubstation
09.21.10 | Ogden Theatre, Denver

Last night, the first of Rusko's two sold-out shows in Colorado had the Ogden bursting at the seams, with glow bracelets (as opposed to the glow sticks popular at '90s raves) dotting the crowd. Denver has earned a reputation for being one of the most intoxicated cities in America, and last night, if you dared to make your way to the front, there was plenty of empirical evidence to bear this out, leaving no doubt that everyone there was out to have a great time.

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.
