Savoy at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 9/7/12

Behind a cloud of smoke and haze, the members of Savoy took to their raised podiums in front of a frenzied Red Rocks last night behind a glowing panel of pulsing lights that simply read "SAVOY." This build-up to the first drop was crucial, steadily adding to the anticipation with yelps of joy from the crowd at each tease. When the group finally delivered the entree, they served a feast of electronica with a generous helping of lasers.
