The ten best concerts in Denver this week
1. KISHI BASHI @ BLUEBIRD THEATER | TUES, 2/19/13
Before making a name for himself on his own, Kaoru Ishibashi released a couple of albums with Jupiter One, the Brooklyn-based synth pop act he co-founded with keyboardist Zac Colwell in the early part of the last decade. And before that, he spent some time on the road with Of Montreal and Regina Spektor. These days, however, the thirty something violinist, who's better known these days as Kishi Bashi, the mashed-up moniker he assumed when struck out on his own, continues to turn heads with his violin playing and majestic vocals on 151a, the splendid, sweeping, symphonic album he funded through Kickstarter and released last year. If you have a thing for acts like Sufjan Stevens, Antony and the Johnsons and Andrew Bird, you'll fall in love instantly with Kishi Bashi.
