I used to do birthday posts for friends and I am not sure why I stopped. I also used to post a whole lot more, but that is whole 'nother story. Today is the birthday of two AMZY members, another has one next week... and…
"I bet you think you're here to see X Ambassadors, right?" That was Sean from AMZY as I walked into Larimer Lounge a few weeks ago, ready to photograph, yes, X Ambassadors. Seems that band, as well as the previous first opening band had to cancel at the last minute and there was a major shuffle in the lineup. Fellow Denver band Medic was brought in and now AMZY would be headlining. Phases (you'll recognize their song "I'm In Love With My Life") continued on with their set, although their night was a little less frenetic as planned - the show had been way sold out. The good news is the place stayed about half full, and more importantly - everything now took on a "secret show" air. There was a certain sense of camaraderie between the bands and the crowd, and I have so say - it was one of the best AMZY shows I have ever seen. The guys even pulled off a cover of X Ambassadors big song "Renegades" with about 10 minutes of practice. Well done, y'all.
