What New Year's weekend looked like in Denver
STS9 @ FILLMORE AUDITORIUM | 12/31/12

FIVE IRON FRENZY @ CASSELMAN'S BAR & VENUE | 12/31/12
From the very beginning of its New Year's Eve set at Casselman's Bar & Venue in Denver, Five Iron Frenzy brought an enormous amount of energy, fueled by a clear sense of joy at performing. The old fans were incredibly happy to get to see the band again, and the fans who never got to see the band the first time around were equally charged, with their enthusiasm matched by the enthusiasm coming off the stage. The exuberance was infectious. Even if this was your first time seeing the group, it felt like seeing friends you haven't seen in a while. [continue on to full review]
AMON TOBIN @ CITY HALL | 12/31/12
Amon Tobin approached the stage shortly after the official countdown to the new year and immediately launched into a set that blew minds and caught some folks off guard, those folks who may have only been familiar with music played on his ISAM tour. His New Year's Eve set at City Hall was full of low-down, dirty drum and bass and void of any of that new age, fast dubstep. For the first moments of 2013, Tobin absolutely tore City Hall apart with 170 bpm breaks, while showing remarkable courage in his choice of samples. [continue on to full review or full slide show]
DECADENCE @ COLORADO CONVENTION CENTER | 12/31/12

Eric Gruneisen was on hand to capture the scene, and we posted all of the pics he brought back in the full slide show.
