Everyone out there has been to a show where there is that one uber fan that really doesn’t give a shit what anyone thinks. These people zone out, dance all crazy and/or straight up freak out. Well at the sold out Phantogram show at the Ogden Theater in Denver, CO, these types seemed to be everywhere.
Phantogram is currently touring to promote their newest endeavor Voices, released earlier this year. The track “Black out Days” has been getting a ton of airplay on local radio here in Denver. “Lights“, a track on last year’s block buster “Hunger Games – Catching Fire” hasn’t hurt the bands popularity either.
Let’s get back to the uber fan. Seeing a band live is an experience, a way for the artist to truly connect with their fans. Sarah Barthel and the crew did not disappoint. Even down tempo songs like “Bill Murray” had everyone getting their grove on. Guitarist and lead front man Josh Carter has known Sarah since middle school and that long time connection makes for extensive stage chemistry. You put all this together with an impressive light show, an awesome sound system, Chris Carhart absolutely killing it on the drums and I dare you stay static. Sarah’s energy was off the charts for this show, running every inch of stage and playing just about every instrument up there all the while looking smoking hot. After all this, now I’m looking like that uber fan who doesn’t give a shit. Good times.
The crew will be traveling all over the U.S. closing out 2014 with the Snow Globe Festival in Tahoe where they will be ringing in the new year for three nights. If your in the area you can’t miss them live. Check out a full list of tour dates below.
