Every St. Patrick’s Day, our local indie radio station KTCL Channel 93.3 throws a party called Keggs & Eggs. This year it fell exactly on St. Patrick’s Day, which happened to be a Thursday, which pretty much created a four-day weekend because who wants to go back to work after drinking at 7am? The bands playing this year were locals AMZY, Saint Motel and also locals Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.
Keggs & Eggs 2016 was as awesome as ever!
The line started to queue up the day before – who wouldn’t want to see these three great bands in a small bar like LoDo’s? And green Coors Light (a sponsor of the event) was flowing right away. Nerf kicked the morning off and all the DJs were live from the event all day.
First up were former Hometown For The Holidays winners (and good friends) AMZY. I often call them (to their faces) the “most improved” band I have ever seen because while they were good at Hometown – they are incredible now. Really, really fun. Their next show in Denver is May 6 at The Gothic.
Next up were Big Gig veterans Saint Motel. I am sure you know their big hits “My Type” and “Cold Cold Man.” I can’t wait for new music from these guys because they are the whole package. Great music and great live. They have a bunch of shows this summer (including Firefly and Lollapalooza), so watch for them.
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
I have some bad news. Due to the full, crazy and energetic nature of Denver’s love for the Night Sweats, I was unable to shoot these guys again. As you can tell from the photos and my descriptions, this party is TRULY a party and sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Sooo, here is a snap of DJ Alf and I enjoying Nathaniel Rateliff from the monitor upstairs after I threw in the towel.
And here is me saluting KTCL with green beer for the awesome time we had again this year at Keggs & Eggs.
We are so lucky to have such a great radio station here in Denver who puts on so many great festival concerts. Next up is BIG GIG at Fiddler’s Green on July 9th. The lineup is stellar, and will include a “local’s only” stage for Colorado bands to show off how great they are.
