The Silent Comedy, the Rock / Folk band from San Diego crushed their first ever performance in Aspen, Colorado last night at the Belly Up Aspen. The Silent Comedy comprised of brothers Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman, Justin Buchanan and Chad Lee had the crowd in a frenzy with their wild stage antics and raging strings.

I first became a fan of The Silent Comedy (TSC) after seeing them perform at Switchfoot's Bro-Am in 2011. The Bro-Am is an annual surfing competition and rock and roll show on Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. (click to see our Bro-Am coverage) In 2011,TSC blew everyone away with their rowdy beach-side set of Americana influenced tunes. Since then the band has entertained countless fans all over the U.S.A. Their 2010 Album Common Faults won the San Diego Music Award for best pop album and their latest self-produced EP Cruelty & Clemency is seling fast. TSC's songs have been featured on TV in the mini series, The Hatfield's and the McCoys and The Men Who Built America.
TSC almost didn't make it to the show. Their afternoon Gondola session to the top of Aspen Mountain was put on hold due to a potential lightning storm. The Silent Comedy was "stuck" on top of Ajax...but luckily they made back down the mountain safely in time to blaze on stage.
The Silent Comedy rocked out in Aspen & we're glad they did. Another awesome show. See you in San Diego, boyz...soon...very soon.
