The Jesus and Mary Chain play Psychocandy in Denver - Video and Photos (MusicMonday)

On May 11, 2015, The Jesus and Mary Chain played at the Ogden Theatre in Denver as part of a tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of their album Psychocandy.

It was an absolutely amazing show, which took me right back to my teenage years and reminded me of why I considered this band to be my very favorite for such a long time. Their music is loud, sonic, dark, melodious and beautiful - all at the same time. And the lyrics go straight to the heart and gut.

Before playing the entire Psychocandy album, they played a few other favorites. Incredibly, they started the show with my most loved song: "April Skies" from the album Darklands. I barely got my camera up in time to capture an excerpt from the performance before enjoying the rest of the song without trying to keep a camera steady...

And for a more upbeat song, here is an excerpt of "The Living End" from Psychocandy performed at the Ogden Theatre.

Here are a few video stills from those two songs. I might upload a few more actual photos from that night later. Right now I've got to run shoot something new...
