Ritter Rocks Denver (A Concert Review)

Josh Ritter at the Bluebird Theater B

Why is Josh Ritter so darn happy? I've seen a lot of rocks shows in my day but rarely have I witnessed an artist so exuberant and simultaneously humble. Tonight was an angst free zone, and although I love angst and all that sad sap aggression. Tonight's show was a refreshing change that was fun and entertaining without feeling contrived.

It wasn't without its touching moments though, when he played Girl in the War it almost brought me to tears.
