The Beths at Summit Denver
The Beths, the indie rock band from New Zealand, delivered a high-energy performance that left the crowd at their recent Denver concert buzzing with excitement. Lead singer and guitarist Elizabeth Stokes (obviously the origin of the band name) had the crowd singing along to every song, and the band’s tight musicianship was on full display throughout their set.
From the opening chords of “Future Me Hates Me” to the closing notes of “Little Death,” The Beths captivated the crowd. Stokes’ vocals were spot-on, with her range and power shining on every song. Her guitar playing was equally impressive, as she effortlessly transitioned from driving power chords to intricate solos.
The band’s rhythm section, consisting of bassist Benjamin Sinclair and drummer Tristan Deck, provided a solid foundation for the music. Sinclair’s bass lines were groovy and melodic, while Deck’s drumming was dynamic and precise. Guitarist Jonathan Pearce was the final puzzle piece who made it a full-on rock show (tied up in a super cool indie bow).
Also, I would be remiss not to mention the gigantic blow-up fish (a trout?) that joined them on stage. I love to see bands employing this (seemingly?) easy way to add fun to their shows. Not sure what they will bring when The Beths return to Denver on August 11th and 12th, opening for The National at Mission Ballroom – but I can’t wait to see.
