Australian pop wunderkinds, San Cisco, rolled through Colorado last week for the second time in six months. Having previously supported The Vaccines in February at Denver’s Bluebird Theater, this show marked San Cisco’s first headlining tour at a venue of equal size, The Gothic Theatre. Describing Denver as bassist, Nick Gardner’s favorite city in America, the band welcomed a healthy crowd to the venue for a Tuesday night.
Although acting in the role of the headliner, the show felt very much like an opener, with the entire set and encore pushing just 45 minutes. Opening with “Lyall”, the band moved swiftly through their set hitting classics (i.e., “Golden Revolver” and “Awkward”) to close their performance with “Fred Astaire”. The concert felt rushed and the band overall exhausted and eager to exit the stage. With the exception of a couple hits, the audience mirrored the band’s momentum with equally low enthusiasm. Marking the last week of their US tour, the band will return home to rejuvenate before heading out on their European tour in October.
