One of our favorite bands made their way through Denver this past weekend to kick off their North American tour with two stops at The Fillmore Auditorium. Alt-J the trio from Leeds, England stopped by and entertained us for two nights of awesome and amazing music. Bringing their same production as last summers Red Rocks show the band this time around played more stuff off Relaxer their latest album. Crowd favorites included the usual "Tesselate", "Matilda", and "Dissolve Me", before ending the night with a three song encore including "Breezleblocks". The band opened with "Deadcrush" for those of you who play FIFA 18 you have become quite familiar with this one. The setlist was the same both nights and they managed to belt out 20 songs by the time the night was over. The band continues with the rest of the tour and you can get more information here.
