REVIEW: American Authors Concert

KATIE PICKRELL

American Authors, along with The Mowglis and Echosmith, brought an amazing vibe to the Ogden on Tuesday, Oct. 15 as part of the 2014 Honda Civic Tour.

Because they were playing a sold out show at The Ogden Theater in Denver, the environment fit the upbeat mood of all three bands perfectly.

The doors opened at 6:30 p.m. with a line stacked down the block. By 7:00 p.m. the theater appeared to be packed full with a surprisingly wide array of ages.

Echosmith, an alternative, indie-pop band based out of Los Angeles, opened up the show and pumped up the crowd. What is truly amazing about this band is how young they are. The youngest member is only 14 years old while the oldest is 21. The audience went wild listening to them perform some of their most popular songs such as the hit “Cool Kids.”

Before American Authors finally took the stage, The Mowglis also gave an amazing performance. The entire audience seemed to literally fall in love with love as they played their well-known song “San Francisco.”

After nearly two hours of performance by the opening bands and a long wait for set-up, American Authors finally took the stage opening up with their song “Home.”IMG_1633

American Authors played enough music to last two hours, including not only their own songs but also a cover of Coldplay’s “Yellow” and Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.”

If there was one thing I have to say about the night, it is that Zac Barnett’s voice is better live than you will ever hear it any way else.

On top of giving an all around amazing performance, American Authors made it clear they have a strong connection with their fans. It wasn’t only the production, but also the setting that made the concert so great.

Although the entire show seemed to be a huge commercial for Honda, as the name of the tour would imply, the concert never lacked enthusiasm.
