Aqueous has shared the pro-shot, full-show video from their recent performance at Estes Park, Colorado’s Stanley Hotel back on February 16th. The performance that evening was the second of five Colorado shows (and seventh show overall) as part of the rock quartet’s ongoing winter tour alongside BIG Something.
The night’s performance began with the band grooving into “Weight of the Word”, an original tune off their 2018 Color Wheel LP. The opening song of the night heard Dave Loss hammering away on his keyboard while Mike Gantzer eased into the tune on guitar before starting into the vocals. The set continued with a funk-filled “Origami” followed by “The Median”, showcasing some excellent guitar work from both Loss and Gantzer on the latter. The band then went into “Random Company”, a hard-hitting but spacey tune from their 2016 Best In Show EP, which continued right into a cover of Gorillaz‘ “Clint Eastwood” with Loss on vocals. To add to the band’s rendition of the Gorillaz hit, the Aqueous fellas welcomed BIG Something’s Nick MacDaniels to the stage to perform the song’s rap verse in fine fashion before returning to “Random Company”.
The show continued with a high-energy performance of “Aldehyde” before closing out with “Half In, Half Out”. Fans can watch the video below to relive that night’s entire performance in full.
