Interview: Nathaniel Rateliff and Joseph Pope III

November 27, 2013
Guest DJ: Nathaniel Rateliff and Joseph Pope III
Playing to a packed Gothic Theatre whose audience included Governor John Hickenlooper, Rateliff shined throughout the night. He captivated as both a heartfelt folk-rocker in a set featuring material from his latest  album Falling Faster Than You Can Run, and as an energetic soul bandleader with Night Sweats. The musical transformation that took place in between sets was nothing short of magical, but it seemed effortless for Rateliff and his band, which included Pope for both performances.  
Prior to the annual show, Rateliff stopped by OpenAir with bandmate Joseph Pope III for a Guest DJ interview session with Mile High Noon host Corey Jones. In addition to detailing the evolution of the Holiday show, the local musicians debut a new Night Sweats track as well as a song from Pope's Miss America project.
