Before I begin, I am going to come out and flatly express my dying love for singer Sarah Barthel of Phantogram. Good let's move on, Monday nights are usually reserved for relaxing, watching football, and enjoying carryout food. Not so much the case at The Ogden Theatre on this night, Phantogram is currently touring in support of their last album Voices. In fact it's the second time they have rolled through in support, we had a chance to see them last April as well. The electric rock duo electrified the sold out crowd with their carefully orchestrated dance numbers and slowed down electro ballads. With a visual light show to compliment the impressive setlist, all were left shaking their tails to the infectious sounds.
The duo have managed to win over the hearts of all their Colorado fans with great performances. I still remember seeing the band at Larimer Lounge in 2010, four years later the band has grown well beyond any's expectations. The band wasted no time getting the party started with "Nothing But Trouble" the opening track off their latest Voices. They played some crowd favorites including "Don't Move", "Black Out Days", "Fall In Love", and "When I'm Small". Denver does love them some electro-dance so its no wonder the whole Ogden Theatre turned into an all out dance party. With a slew of a few more tour dates and Austin City Limits Music Festival coming up, we would highly recommend bringing your dancing shoes and a pair of ear plugs.
Setlist: Nothing But Trouble | Running Cops | As Far As I Can See | Blackout Days | Stone | Bad Dreams | Don't Move | Day You Died | Bill Murray | Blame You | Fall In Love | Howling | When I'm Small | Encore: Mouthful | Celebration
