Cut Copy at the Ogden Theater: October 4, 2011: Review

Ultra5280 was in the house last Tuesday night as we headed out to the Ogden Theater. Cut Copy, without a doubt, managed to throw one of the better dance parties I’ve ever been to.  The Ogden was totally packed for the Australian quartet, and they certainly didn’t disappoint.  Washed Out set a good stage, getting the crowd moving, but the excitement really rose when Cut Copy took the stage.

Opening with “Take Me Over,” Cut Copy gave everyone exactly what they wanted with their danceable tunes that gave everyone energy.  The crowd did not stop dancing for the entire show.  They played through most of their favorite tracks, including “Lights and Music” and “Hearts on Fire,” playing for well over an hour.  Nobody on stage stopped moving for the entire set, with a light show that was simply fun to watch.  The strobes and lasers complemented the music in unison as the Ogden crowd absorbed the musical ecstasy.

Even though it was a Tuesday night, Denver certainly brought it hard to the Ogden.  Everyone in the house was willing to sacrifice a few hours of sleep for the fun that Cut Copy had to offer.
