Young The Giant and Strumbellas at Denver’s Bud Light Party

Last month, I interviewed Young The Giant’s drummer in advance of the Denver Bud Light Party. It was a fun night – full of music, the arts – and of course, beer. Young The Giant released their latest album Amerika that same week, and if you haven’t listened to it yet – be sure to check it out. It’s their best yet (in my opinion) and I was blown away by their live show.

Young The Giant returns to Denver for two nights at the Ogden Theater in early November.

Opener The Strumbellas were also lots of fun, and big crowd pleasers. These guys return in December for KTCL Channel 93.3’s annual Not So Silent Night music festival – and tickets for that go on sale this Friday. Continue reading…

Notes from a DieHard Music Fan (Win Your Own Fan Experience!)

Note: I was compensated for this post. However, I was happy to write about my love of music and concerts!

We’ve all heard of DieHard, right? But did you know everything they actually do? I didn’t – before they asked me to help spread the word for their “From The Start” contest. I took a look at the DieHard site and realized they are much more than car batteries, like we grew up with.

They also have portable power products, phone cases, flashlights, high-performance work boots and more. Work boots? Given the fact that I am still recovering from two, count em TWO, sprained ankles that I acquired while photographing a concert – I was intrigued!

Interview with Young The Giant for #BudLightParty

You guys! I was lucky enough to chat with Francois Comtois, drummer for Young The Giant, ahead of their appearance at Denver’s convention stop on the Bud Light Party tour. We only had a few minutes, but he was super nice as we talked about their new album Home of the Strange and working with Bud Light.

Bud Light Party Convention Tour - Denver 2016

If you aren’t sure what the “Bud Light Party” is, exactly – they have been throwing FREE concerts all over the country with all kinds of bands and artists to highlight diversity and fun during this crazy election season. It’s not about politics, it’s about getting together with your pals and caucusing for a good time. Rules to win tickets differ by city but check out the site to get yours (21+ only).

In Denver, we were lucky enough to have The Strumbellas and Young The Giant perform at the Fillmore Auditorium, with art installations, photo booths and lots of free Bud Light. All while seeing two great bands most of us would absolutely have paid to see.

Thanks Bud Light! Continue reading…

Riu Palace Riviera Maya: Chandeliers By The Beach

Note: A portion of our trip was provided by Riu Hotels. However, all words and photos are mine.

It’s been ten years since we visited the Riviera Maya area of Mexico. And the last time we were there, I broke my ankle! Lucky for me, this trip – and our time at Riu Palace Riviera Maya – were totally incident-free. In fact, everything was exactly what you want from a beach vacation. Well, the weather was maybe a touch cool (75 F) for Mexico, but I will let Riu off the hook for that.

As in 2006, our best friends Danielle, Jeff and their son joined us. We consider each other “framily” in that we spend holidays and vacations together. This time was extra, extra special because we watched the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl while drinking cervezas on the beach. WOOT! Continue reading…
