Channel 93.3 Top Ten Hometown For The Holidays (HTFTH) 2017

Have you heard about the Hometown For The Holidays song contest from KTCL Channel 93.3? Every year, our local DJs like Alf and Nerf are sent hundreds of entries and then a panel of local music peeps vote anonymously to help narrow down the entries. The result is ten songs that are played on air for a week and then voted on by any music nerd who has signed up for the KTCL surveys.

The prize? Personally, I think it’s the radio airplay – but the band that comes out on top plays at next year’s Westword Music Showcase and Not So Silent Night – as well as winning valuable studio time in Colorado’s famous Blasting Room.

Photos from Denver Zombie Crawl 2017: Blood and Clowns

Denver Zombie Crawl returned to the Mile High City with a vengeance this year. Sure, since the date for the event was a bit earlier than normal there was perhaps a bit lighter attendance (not much), but our Colorado undead were no less enthusiastic. In fact, I would say the commitment to blood was over the top in 2017.

Not surprisingly, the costume we saw the most often was CLOWNS … and given my great fear of them, I hid behind my camera all day. Besides the clowns, I love how Zombie Crawls brings all the Denverites out. It’s such a diverse event that you can adapt for yourself. We go with our best friends and the kids, but later in the night head out adults-only for the after-parties.

It’s an awesome Colorado event that has something for everyone. Continue reading…

Tons of Photos from Denver Comic Con 2017

Every year, when I attend Denver Comic Con, I try to lurk in the shadows. Mainly because I like catching people in candid moments rather than setting them up all posey-posey. Not that there is anything wrong with smiling straight into the camera for photos – I just love observing the wide variety of people at DCC and how they interact with each other.

2017 brought the geek out for 115,000 attendees and again makes Denver the third largest Comic Con in the country (behind San Diego and New York). There were some rule changes and lots of space reorganization that bewildered folks at first (including me) – but once we got the hang of it, all was well. Continue reading…

Photos from Westword Music Showcase 2017

Your may notice that it’s August and Westword Music Showcase happened in June. I hate it when people make excuses for late posts, but hopefully I can get a pass after the year I have had? Pretty please?

Either way, my lateness is no reflection on the awesomeness of WMS. The style of headliners shifted a bit this year – whereas the end of the night has usually been full of pumping beats and lights… and for 2017, Shakey Graves torn down the house (err, parking lot) with just his voice and a guitar.

Personally, I welcome the change – particularly with The Revivalists romping around just as the sun was setting on a gorgeous Denver day. Continue reading…
