Ultra5280's Best Of 2018: Top Shows

2018 brought us some amazing shows. From comebacks to the unexpected to the rebirth of a local festival. Denver finally got it’s own big festival after months of rumors with Grandoozy. Red Rocks continued to impress with probably its best lineup in years. It’s hard task when asked to name your Top 5, but we sat down with some of our friends and finalized our lists. The consensus from our panel would be that David Byrne returned in 2018 with the best show of the year, landing number one on many lists. Taylor Swift toured with her amazing production landing a few spots on the list. Other notable shows were Janelle Monae, Childish Gambino and a few new faces such as CupcakKe and Jungle. With 2019 announcements already starting to roll in we expect it to be bigger and better. Thank you to our amazing friends at Live Nation, AEG Presents, Illegal Pete’s, Do303, The UMS, Levitt Pavillion, Open Air, Behind The Scene Podcast, without you we wouldn’t be able to attend so many amazing shows. Until next year…..

Austin Music City Limits Music Festival | Day Two | Weekend Two

Day two of the festival started off with a bang with amazing early day sets from Mondo Cozmo, Carseat Headrest, A$AP Ferg, and supergroup Dreamcar (Davey Havok of AFI and No Doubt). The late afternoon brought on an inspiring performance from Angel Olsen who was battling the effects of the dust and still managed to play an amazing set. One of the funnest sets of the weekend belonged to Glass Animals and their high energy off the wall performance. Dave Bayley and company entertained the packed Honda Stage with hits off their album How To Be A Human Being. It's always great to see when hometown bands play their respected towns, such were the glowing reviews from last weeks Spoon set. Expecting the same,  the band came out swinging and put on another amazing set. Led by frontman Britt Daniel and company the band played an array of hits off their ever spanning catalog with a majority of newer material off Hot Thoughts.

The evenings battling headliners split between Chicago native Chance The Rapper and California rock legends The Red Hot Chili Peppers (photo restrictions applied to both acts). Chance performed the same set he has been performing on his last tour, while RHCP played all of the classics we have come to love. An evening that catered to the older and newer generation.

Austin City Limits Music Festival | Day One | Weekend Two

We made our annual pilgrimage to the great state of Texas this past weekend for the annual Austin Music City Limits Music Festival once again. Three straight days of amazing music (and food) catered to everybody with it's spanning musical genres. Friday night was highlighted by acts such as Andrew McMahon and The Wilderness who played to the early masses. Electro-pop darlings Crystal Castles got our dancing shoes moving with one of the better sets of the weekend, perfect mix of showmanship and dance influenced material had the Honda stage raging. Pop-rock siblings Brian D’Addario and Michael D’Addario of The Lemon Twigs put on a remarkable live set reminiscent and influenced by the likes of Queen and David Bowie. The late afternoon blessed us with the winner of this years Mercury Prize (an annual music prize awarded for the best album from the United Kingdom and Ireland), Skepta who's London Grime sound has received worldwide acclaim. His set was on point and delivered just as we had expected. Other worthwhile sets included The Revivalist, Bonobo, Eagles of Death Metal and The xx who headlined the Honda Stage. One of the most anticipated sets of the day belonged to Solange (who was running late to her scheduled time). Her set provided a perfect segway to her Brother-in-laws set, Mr. Sean Carter aka Jay-Z. The New York rap legend performed in front of a 40-foot inflatable dog balloon designed by Jeff Koons. He played all of his major hits and even had Damian "JR Gong" Marley join him for "Bam" off his latest album 4:44. His set included well known hits including crowd sing-a-longs such as "Empire State of Mind", "Big Pimpin", "Run This Town", and many more. He ended his set with a touching tribute to the late Checter Bennington of Linkin Park with his rendition of the hit mashup "Numb/Harcore" before closing out the night with "99 Problems". A great first day to kick off the festival.
