Concert Reviews

Twin Shadow at Bluebird Theater, 9/7/12


Before ending the set, after a show full of enthusiastic responses from his audience, George Lewis Jr. said, "Denver, you're amazing. Who was here last time we came?" A few people claimed to have been. He complimented the crowd on being honest because he had expected around a hundred to claim to have been there. He also said it was hardly anyone, though it was a good show, and told the crowd that coming back to a place the size of the Bluebird full of people was a nice surprise.
