05. SAUNA FAREWELL SHOW @ LARIMER LOUNGE | FRI, 8/17
Sauna played its first show just before Christmas in 2010 opening for Lust-Cats of the Gutters. At that time, guitarist C.J. Macleod, bassist Ethan Hill, drummer Samantha Davis and lead vocalist Molly Bartlett were juniors in high school. Since then, Sauna has ventured out on three tours out west, issued a handful of releases and opened for a ton of national acts, including the B-52s last year at the Ogden. As a result, the outfit has earned widespread acclaim across the scene. Sauna is playing its last show tonight for at least a while as its members head in different directions and go off to college.

The Skid Row show boasts a decent set list

and the singer does Bach justice.

I've caught this line up a cpl times and it was a

reunion of sorts in running into people I haven't seen in

ages.

Kudos to these guys for NOT pulling a Cinderella and

refusing to play because the stage is too small. Their fans will

have a blast !!!

It's a travesty that Pretty Lights was listed as #1 over Dead Can Dance. C'mon! How many times have they played in Denver the last year? I guess if by best you mean most popular, then maybe you're right. Dead Can Dance will certainly be the most special show this weekend.
