Alex & Sierra at Denver Botanic Gardens
I wish someone would put out a guide of shows that, in hindsight, we should go back and watch if we missed them. Because after seeing Alex & Sierra perform their very first concert of their very first tour – I wish I had watched the season where they won X Factor USA. The couple are very endearing and damn talented. They were here opening for Colbie Caillat, but as Mother Nature often toys with us in Colorado – the skies literally opened up after Alex & Sierra’s set and all of the Denver Botanic Gardens amphitheater had to seek shelter. (Yes, if you aren’t a local – our gardens have a summer concert series – this year graced by the Chihuly exhibit).
I was sad not to see Colbie (we punked out and left) but happy to hear a band that was fun, fresh, youthful and really happy to be playing. Their songs are a mixture of folk and pop, as you can hear from their first single, “Scarecrow” and the second, “Here We Go.” I look forward to hearing more from these guys when their full album drops next week on October 7th.
Will check them out!
Let me know what you think!
Yay, you are home! These pics are wonderful. The Botanic Gardens are such a great place for a concert.
I know – we love it there! We are no members again so I hope to get in on more concerts next summer.
I loved them on X-Factor!
I wonder if I can find the old seasons on Hulu or Netflix??
