Airborne Toxic Event Return to Denver – June 2nd

Airborne Toxic Event Will Return to the Ogden Theatre in Denver on Thursday June 2nd.
Presale Friday February 18th.

Island Records group The Airborne Toxic Event will re-write all the rules when they launch multi-venue five-night residencies in the world’s three rock capitals – London, Los Angeles, and New York – in support of the April 26th release of their long-awaited new album, ALL AT ONCE, featuring their first new single in nearly two years, “Changing.” What makes these residencies unique and unprecedented is that the five nights will encompass venues of increasing size and capacity in each city. TATE über-fans who have only seen the band in large auditoriums will now have the opportunity to see them in an intimate club setting, and vice versa – those who have only seen the band in small or medium sized venues can now see the big show in a major hall.

In Los Angeles, for example, during the release week of ALL AT ONCE, shows will begin on Monday night, April 25th, at Satellite in Silver Lake (formerly known as Spaceland, capacity: 260); then move to the Troubadour (capacity: 500) on Tuesday, album release day; then to the El Rey Theatre on Miracle Mile (capacity: 900) on Wednesday, April 27th; then the prestigious Henry Fonda Theatre (capacity: 1,300) on Thursday, April 28th; and conclude on Friday night a secret show that will only be available to the first fans that buy “season tickets” to all four shows (See tour info below for presale details).

The week before in London, dates start on Monday night, April 18th, with a secret show; then move to Dublin Castle in Camden (capacity: 150) on Tuesday, April 19th; then Barfly, also in Camden (capacity: 200) on Wednesday, April 20th; then to King’s College (capacity: 500) on Thursday, April 21st; concluding on Friday night at the Koko nightclub (formerly known as the Camden Palace, capacity: 1,400).

The final week in New York City, shows begin on Monday night, May 2nd at the Lower East Side’s tiny Pianos bar (capacity: 140); then move a few blocks away to Mercury Lounge (capacity: 250) on Tuesday, May 3rd; then stay in the neighborhood at the Bowery Ballroom (capacity: 500) on Wednesday, May 4th; then to Webster Hall (capacity: 1,400) on Thursday, May 5th; and conclude on Friday night a secret show will be announced.

With loyal fanbase followings on every continent around the world, The Airborne Toxic Event has roared back – as “Changing” picks up momentum at Alternative radio formats, and early sales at all digital partners. Produced by Dave Sardy (credits: Oasis, Band of Horses, the Ting Tings, Twisted Wheel), “Changing” is the first single from ALL AT ONCE. In addition, check out the first Bombastic video from the band here. “The Bombastic” is a weekly series of one-shot, one-take acoustic performances by The Airborne Toxic Event. It will feature every song from the band’s new album “All At Once” (available April 26). Week 1, the title track “All At Once,” features the Calder Quartet and the Lalo Guerrero Children’s Choir and band. Directed by Jon Danovic.

The Airborne Toxic Event is currently playing a series of European residencies. Throughout February, they are performing every Monday at Paradiso in Amsterdam, every Tuesday at White Trash in Berlin, and every Friday at a different venue in Paris (while also touring extensively throughout the three countries and the UK during the month).

Since its release in 2008, The Airborne Toxic Event, the band’s self-titled debut album has sold over 200,000 copies in the U.S., and over 300,000 copies internationally. Named “Debut Album of the Year” by the Boston Herald, the record spent 53 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, with eight of those weeks logged at #1. The album’s breakthrough single “Sometime Around Midnight” rose to #4 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart, and was named Alternative Song Of The Year at iTunes. The next single, “Wishing Well,” broke the Top 20 at Alternative radio. The songs received major airplay internationally on BBC Radio 1 in the UK, Australia, France, Germany, Austria, Canada, Japan, Switzerland, and South East Asia.

The Airborne Toxic Event – Mikel Jollett (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Steven Chen (guitar, keyboards), Anna Bulbrook (viola, keyboards, tambourine, backing vocals), Noah Harmon (bass, backing vocals), and Daren Taylor (drums) – have earned their reputation as an aggressive touring band, known for playing more than 350 dates in support of their debut album release, supporting Kings of Leon, Franz Ferdinand, the Ting Tings, and many others.

As their residency plans show, the Airborne Toxic Event is no stranger to grand musical gestures. They were the only modern music act to play at the esteemed Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles during its 2009 fall season. The result was the concert-documentary film All I Ever Wanted, released September 2010, chosen as an official selection to the Raindance Film Festival. The band also performed with The Colorado Symphony in January. TATE’s full-scale U.S. and European tours will follow this spring, with dates to be announced this month.

The Airborne Toxic Event is also familiar to television viewers, having debuted on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, and appeared on CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman, NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the old NBC Late Night with Conan O’Brien. They headlined a one-hour concert special on DirecTV. VH1 designated them a “You Oughta Know” artist which later peaked at #4 on VH1’s Top 20 countdown. They have also received A-list rotation on MTV2. For further information go to

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
