One of the most anticipated Red Rocks shows of the season, Alt-J performed to a sold-out crowd of all-ages on a Monday.
The overall production of the show was more than I expected for an alternative rock band. A variety lights really added to the overall performance.
But to be bluntly honest, the show didn't have as much "magic" as I was hoping for. The sound wasn't as full, as chill-worthy, as I thought it would be. It almost sounded too much like the record. I would have added in another drum set and maybe more harmonies.
My favorite song of the night was "Taro". Every break down of the chorus, the band really brought the sound I had been hoping for the entire night.
Needless to say, I danced the entire night, because Alt-J songs are masterpieces of the pop-rock genre and have deemed themselves to be classics of this generation.
