The Meter Men at The Ogden Theater 9/11/2014

Bracing the rain and cold weather, Farnaz and I set off last Thursday night to see the Meter Men at the Ogden Theater. We arrived just as the doors opened and hardly anyone was there. The Congress opened the show with a set that had a southern-rock/R&B feel coming from right here in Denver. It was a very intimate show, and The Congress powered through their set delivering flawless vocals from lead singer Jonathan Meadows.

 

By the time The Congress had finished their set, the Ogden Theater was beginning to fill up. It was mostly an older crowd, but everyone there was ready to get down.  I was only familiar with their previous work under the name, “The Meters”, and was unsure if they would still have the funk. I was pleasantly surprised. George Porter Jr. treated the crowed with tasty bass lines, while Leo Nocentelli played rhythm guitar as well as solos on “Fire on the Bayou” and “Cissy Strut”. By their third song, their syncopated rhythms and roaring organ pulled us down from the balconly and had us grooving on the floor. These guys have rightfully earned and still deserve the title, “The Pioneers of Funk”.

This week's Album Spotlight: Tennis - Ritual in Repeat

 Local superduo Tennis is back with a new album, Ritual in Repeat. This husband and wife musical team brings  the feel of the golden coast to this landlocked state with their surf-rock style and lilting vocal style. A great track off the album is called "Never Work for Free." With its insistant and deep snare hits, repetitive guitar riffs and strong vocals accompanied by staccato oohs and ohs, this track is reminiscent of Cindy Lauper, neon leotards and big hair. You can download it for free at Tennis' website by clicking here. Above is their music video for a gentle, meloncholy song titled "Bad Girls;" it was posted minutes ago, literally, minutes!!! You'll always see it first with KRCX

 

Tennis will be back in Denver on November 7th for a concert at the Bluebird Theater. Get your tickets here!

A Fever You Can't "SVET" Out

 

      At the inaugural concert of the Regis University Music Program Concert Series, SVET gave a largely crowd pleasing performance. SVET is a classically trained violinist who made a name for himself by appearing on America’s Got Talent. He combines his classical background with his love for hip hop, electronic, and pop music.
    SVET’s set started as essentially a pop hits DJ set while he played over the songs on his violin. It was fun, but it honestly got old after a bit. However, he is a natural showman, and transformed the recital hall into a sing-a-long. After his first DJ set, he started playing originals. His originals featured him rapping, singing, and fusing pop, hip hop, and modern day EDM. Personally, I enjoyed his instrumental work far more because it focused on the possibilities of the violin in modern day music. His non-instrumental music was not really to my taste, but his pop sensibilities have potential to take him further.
    However, it wasn’t just pop songs all night. SVET played a classical solo piece, and he shredded over the beat to Kanye West’s Clique. But, his showmanship undeniably was the focus of the performance. He would walk out in the crowd, and make people sing along with him. He even requested that people request songs on his Twitter for a special closing song, which was inevitably Toxic by Britney Spears. All in all, it was a fun way to start off the Regis University Music Program Concert Series.
