Showtime

13 people on stage. 1600+ people who’d come to Denver’s Ogden Theatre to hear them sing. And sing they did! They sang … … they stomped … … they hollered … … they drummed … … they strummed … … they harmonized … … they danced … … they pounded … … and they thoroughly outdid themselves. I think you’ll need video to really…

Countdown to New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve 2013 was a momentous occasion for a couple of reasons. First, The Oh Hellos had their biggest show so far.  The sound check alone was pretty overwhelming … … but the final hours before the band took the stage required even more fortitude to endure.  What better way to pass the time than some singing and joking around? You can listen…

Telluride

I took an awful lot of photos on my Colorado trip.  This is not the least bit surprising, just overwhelming.  Because why take photos if I never look at them again?  And why look at them without also sharing them?  And why share them without carefully selecting the ones I think you’ll enjoy the most?  And why share only a few when I can…

On the road again with The Oh Hellos

I’m traveling around Colorado with my favorite band again!  The Oh Hellos played a show at Telluride’s Sheridan Opera House last night, and what a terrific old venue it was. So many gorgeous details that took me right back in time. See that small set of box seats?  The outside corner seat was my vantage point for the show.  I thought surely Mr. and…

Oh Hello, Denver friends!

As you saw in my last post, the Bluebird Theater was packed so I only had a few vantage points for filming/photographing the Oh Hellos show.  I didn’t get everything, but here are a few more video links featuring often partial songs, less than desirable positioning, and progressively bad camera-holding technique.  Consider them a tasty sampling of the full concert, and, if necessary, feel free…

Oh Hello, Denver audiences!

The noise level in Denver’s Bluebird Theater kept rising and people kept pushing toward the stage, waiting for The Oh Hellos to step out from behind the curtain. AND THEN THEY DID!  (<<< click and see!) The energy level of I Was Wrong set the tone for the rest of the show, and the audience sang along on most songs. What a welcome!  What…

Oh Hello, Denver!

An amazing, surreal, life-changing (quite possibly world-changing) thing happened this weekend.  Where to begin? Maybe here? You may recognize those two people in the middle of the group shot above since they appear on my blog every now and then.  The Oh Hellos are a little band consisting of Tyler and Maggie Heath plus a rotating crew of talented friends.  They recorded a four-song EP,…
