Conspirator at The Fox Theater
After finally battling the surprise snowstorm and the ecstatic group of shivering Boulder Conspirator fans, we burst into the Fox and prepared ourselves for round two of the run. From the moment we entered we knew it would be the rowdiest show of the three. Allen Aucoin once again hyped us up with his Dr. Fameus set. He perfectly set us up for a night of quality beats. From the moment the band opened the show with Fascinate, they kept the fire coming all night. The crowd was incredibly energetic, with old school Biscuits fans and kids new to the scene and ready to rage all mixed into the fantastic melting pot of the Fox Theater. The show had a nice mix of old and new tracks. They played one of they’re newest songs Velvet Red into one line of Brick in the Wall and back into Velvet Red, which was a nice treat for those of us who have heard Conspirator cover Brick in the Wall in the past. They continued with Digital Buddha, which I love but will refrain from debating whether Conspirator should be playing it or not, and an original I really dig – Liquid Handcuffs. Overall, the show was a blast and somewhat of a big family reunion. We left the show satisfied and ready to relive the show in our emergency hotel refuge from the Boulder blizzard.

“I was really impressed w/ KJ Sawka’s drumming, though I didn’t appreciate his “hype-man” style. Marc and Aaron seemed to be having a ton of fun. Michetti doesn’t do it for me though… too monotonous and repetitive. That’s about all I have to say about the show, I guess.
Vibe? Well, I was in the back right behind the soundboard, which was way chill. Surrounded by good people and we all had plenty of room to get down.”

“Conspirator attracts so many different people. You always get a mixed crowd. The music had a good blend of new and old influence – not too much dub, not too much house. I always have fun when Conspirator comes to town.”

“The weather made the show a true “blizzard of beats.” The fox is one of my favorite venues in the country to see live music. Seeing Conspirator evolve from my first show at Camp Bisco 4 to now is pretty exciting. Seeing a sold out crowd respond to the new Conspirator tracks was pretty cool. They have come a long way. Conspirator shows has never been about seeing the Disco Biscuits or comparing it to the Biscuits. It was introduced to me as a whole separate band and they played completely different music than the Biscuits. I like Conspirator because it gives Marc and Aron the ability to experiment with things the Biscuits just don’t do.”
