Rilo Kiley – Ogden Theater, CO

Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennet

With Nik Frietas and the Spinto Band as openers, Rilo Kiley played Denver’s Ogden Theater Monday night, their second Colorado show on this leg of the Under the Blacklight tour (the first being the night before at the Black Sheep in Colorado Springs.)

Pierre and Jason sat in with Nik, the Spinto Band jumped around and played kazoos.

Nik was a little Paul McCartney-esque and the Spinto Band seemed Talking Heads inspired but both were quite good.

In the break between the Spinto band and RK, they kept playing the beginning clapping part of Silver Lining, faking everyone out.

When Rilo finally came on around 10:15, they opened with

Close Call

Jenny Lewis

Moneymaker

Jenny asked “What’s up Denver?”

Dreamworld

Capturing Moods

Jenny took a moment to inspect her shoes saying, “I got gum on my shoes,” and that “that’s a first.” She said she was going to take it off and used the Spinto band’s set list to remove the offending gum and Blake said “Thanks for having us” and said that Denver’s a “beautiful little town.”

Breaking Up
Jenny and Blake shared a mic for this one

Does He Love You
during which Jenny jumped over to the piano for a bit

Jenny said, “Thank you, you guys are great! Must be that funny smell in the air, I don’t know.”

Blake added that he was “doing well about two songs ago” until a big plume of pot smoke came up towards him.

Jenny and Blake

Jenny said, “that’s they way they roll out here.”

Blake said, “that’s the way they roll everywhere.” He said that in California it was sort of legalized but “before this becomes a hemp rally I’ll start a song.”

Ripchord

Absence of God

Jenny said, “If I forget the words on this next one will you guys help me out?”

With Arms Outstreched

On one of the choruses she said, “Your turn!” and “just pretend if you don’t know the words.”

After the crowd sand she said something that indicated approval.
Blake said they had his brother, Eric the Snowball in the mix and they started

Hail to Whatever You Found In The Sunlight

It’s A Hit

Better Son or Daughter

Blake said thanks and they started Silver LiningThe big glitter balls came out and Blake ended up popping one of them, showering himself and Jenny in glittery bits.

I Never

They left the stage and many minutes after much crowd stomping and cheering they finally came back out.

Jenny said, “thank you, you guys are awesome. It’s been such a fun show for us.” She noted to the person with bright purple pom-poms that she liked them and Blake said that the other bands had “their stuff for sale” and that this next song is for old ladies.”

Pictures of Success

Jenny said, “Thanks a lot it’s been beautiful.”

Portions for Foxes

Jenny Lewis

This was a super-long marathon version of Portions, after which they scuttled offstage, Jenny flashing a peace sign as she ran.

Overall, it was a fantastic show, the crowd was great and the music awesome. Jenny seemed really happy and bouncy and the entire band seemed a lot more open than the other times I’ve seen them.
