The Gothic and They Might Be Giants

They Might Be Giants at the Gothic
I ventured out of downtown to experience the joy that is They Might Be Giants!

I’ve never been to concert in Denver since I moved here – how can that be? With such great venues and awesome talent coming through all the time?
I have no answer for you, but I have promoted the husband to the LMC – Live Music Coordinator for the family.

The show was awesome! Really how could They Might Be Giants not rock the house right? Everyone knows the songs, it makes everyone happy and everyone bounces!
I read up on the venue on Yelp and determine we needed to get there pretty much at Doors Open if we wanted front row, that we needed to park on Acoma – free after 6!, and that we should dine at Moe’s.

The timing was excellent – we got front row in the Balcony – i’m working my way up to being an oldster – so being body to body and standing for 4 hours is waaay past my threshold! The view from anywhere in the Gothic is amazing. I could see everything!
Our view
The cocktail waitress (is that description any more??) was on her game and right as we were debating who got to climb the stairs to the bar she arrived! Sweet!

This was a 16+ show. 16, really? That’s weird. Yet we still saw at least 3 gentleman toting around 1-3 children each. Really? By children i mean under 10. Really, children, at a grownup venue, on a school night, at a show that doesn’t really get going till 8:30 or 9pm? People really are stupid.

The venue did get a bit warm near the end.
The sounds was great and the venue was awesome! I’ll be looking for more things to see here!

Parking was good except there was no quick way to cut back to our car – so after sweating to death at the top, I got quite chilled making our way back… I know, i am a princess!

As for Moe’s…  All i can say – don’t bother.

Can’t wait for the next time TMBG passes through, on their current trend that would be 2024….  Then I’ll really be an oldster!
