Jamie Lidell Live – Fun and Freaky!

Have you every listened to a Jamie Lidell album? He only has a few as yet, but they are full of interesting sounds and textures, and clearly influenced by many difference genres. Soul, pop, electronica and alternative are represented, to name a few. I must say I prefer “Jim” from 2008 to any of the others, and was so glad that he played a ton of songs from that album when I saw him live in Denver a few weeks ago.

The Bluebird Theater is a small venue, perfect for acts that you want to see intimately. Thus, I was able to get right up front and be right underneath Jamie’s nose for most of the show.

And as he came out in a vest adorned with jingly jangly bells and ready to blow the roof off, I was glad I had pushed up front. If you read articles about Jamie Lidell, several say he isn’t afraid to “let his freak flag fly.” THIS. IS. THE. TRUTH, FRIENDS. In a good way.

Like I said, he is a man of many genres and they come together for one of the funnest shows I have seen in a long time. His voice is amazing, his band rockin’, the music jammin’ and every other rock ‘n roll adjective you can think of.

Here he is with “Another Day” – one of my favorite songs of his – from the show and my poor iPhone.

Seriously. Go see this man live.

    I’ve seen him live twice and have been a fan since the Target commercial days. One of my favorites, for good reason. Off of “Compass” I love the title track and “I Wanna Be Your Telephone”. But I am with Aimee, I prefere “Jim”…that whole album is amazing.
