Nashville Acts Light Up Aggie Theater

Matt Dierlam

The Intimate Aggie Theater hosted two incredible Nashville acts in June. The Great Peacock opened the show with an hour-long set featuring several of their most popular tracks performed on Colorado Sound, including All I Ever Do, Strange Position and High Wind. Turning lyrical stories of love, loss and pain, The Great Peacock proved even more intoxicating and moving on stage.

Band frontman and guitarist Andrew Nelson, fellow guitarist and vocalist Blount Floyd, bassist Frank Keith IV and drummer Nick Recio question the very notion of genre. They dismantle tradition and blur the lines between rock ‘n roll, traditional folk and authentic Americana.

The band ignites some sort of shameless spark with accolades from Paste Magazine, the Nashville Stage, American Songwriter, No Depression, Relix and PopMatters. They shared scenes with an abundance of incredible acts including Susto, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Cage the Elephant, American Aquarium, Margo Price, and Jonathan Tyler.

The Cordovas took control of the stage shortly after the Grand Peacock flew into the chicken coop and delivered an energetic performance that got the crowd dancing very quickly. The set included several tracks from their latest release “Destiny Hotel” which was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine. The album is a collection of well-written lyrics mixed with folk, country and rock & roll music.

The Cordovas, led by Joe Firstman, (who recorded as a solo artist and led The Last Call with Carson Daly Band) delivered a wide range of sounds ranging from Country Rock to Classic Americana, reminiscent of The Band, Grateful Dead or Allman Brothers. They even skipped on ‘Thunder Road’, a classic Bruce Springsteen track with Sevans Henderson on vocals and keyboard, and he looked a lot like the Boss!

Entertaining Fort Collins for over 100 years, the Aggie Theater is Fort Collins’ most historic venue. The venue is in a historic building in the old town from the turn of the century. Built in 1906, The Aggie started out as a furniture store and then grew into a movie theater. In 1995, the Aggie Theater had its last official movie as a movie theater, and soon after, the Aggie Theater was reborn as a concert hall.
