The alternative, quintessentially British (the founding bandmembers are named Gus, Thom, Gwil and Joe) band Alt-J returns to Red Rocks to play tunes off its third album, the inventive, ambient RELAXER. The current tour, which started in June, will take the group everywhere from Romania to Kansas City; here in Colorado, Alt-J will be accompanied by Swedish chanteuse Tove Lo as well as U.S. opening act (and fellow Brit) SOHN, a singer-songwriter who layers his vocals over synth swells. Expect the usual cerebral, hard-to-discern lyrics (the verses in RELAXER count in Japanese and reference a 1939 Welsh novel about a mining town, for starters), as well as a light show that the sandstone scenery at Red Rocks will no doubt make that much more breathtaking.
