Chemical Brothers . Denver
Despite an interruption mid show caused by a 10 minute long audio problem the Chemical Brothers put on a tremendously rocking and fun show at the Fillmore Auditorium last night.
Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons took the show after opener The Faint performed a 45 minute set. Opening with “Galvanize” the duo worked the crowd throughout the night and seamlessly blended in two of my other favorites “It began in Afrika” and “Leave Home.” Their metallic set and interwoven chain video screen gave an industrial vibe to the normally cozy feeling Fillmore, and the crowd of all ages, styles, and backgrounds at it all up.
Thanks to my professional photographer friend M.P. for these photos. He’ll be happy to sell you some wall size prints if you like.
If you’re headed to the Fillmore Auditorum in Denver and care to libate yourself before the show – you’d be best served by visiting the Red Room a few blocks down or Dulcinea’s next door. I discovered during last night’s visit a beer and vodka/soda on site now costs MORE than economy parking at the airport.
This weekend the Chemical Brothers will be headlining the Annual Nocturnal Wonderland Festival in downtown Los Angeles.
