Leftover Salmon at The Aggie – February 2, 2018


Katie Otter



Have you ever been to a concert where you sprained your ankle from dancing so hard? That happened to me at The Aggie on February 2nd for the first night of Leftover Salmon’s two-night run in Fort Collins. It’s safe to say that the temporary pain in my ankle was well worth it. A crowd of all ages packed the floor on Friday night to see the jam band from Boulder, who garnered a wide audience since they formed in 1989.

Mainly bluegrass in nature, Leftover Salmon threw in a lot of covers throughout their set, including many Grateful Dead songs such as “U.S. Blues,” “Deep Elem Blues,” and “New Speedway Boogie” (which was played during their encore). They also covered “Because I Got High” by Afroman, “That’s All” by Genesis, “Takin’ Care of Business” by Bachman Turner Overdrive, and “Eminence Front” by The Who.

Overall, it was a fun, energetic concert that got everyone up on their feet and groovin’.
