Love, Set, Match @ the Bluebird Theater (Concert Review)

I was excited about seeing Tennis, the Denver-based indie pop band at the Bluebird Theater tonight. The husband and wife team of Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley spawned one of my favorite albums of 2012, Young and Old, and based on that gem the concert was destined to be a groovy kick-off to the Thanksgiving holiday. An energetic crowd welcomed the band, who were happy to be wrapping up their tour at home after dodging a tornado, being robbed and getting sick while on the road. They played songs from both of their studio albums  and the new EP, Small Sound. They also debuted a new song that had previously never been performed live. South of France opened for Tennis.  I liked what I'd heard from them prior to the concert. But, unfortunately their opening set was a little hit and miss... Nevertheless, check out South of France at and look for Tennis on tour in 2014:
