The Palm Denver Brunch + Bus for Broncos Games (Free Valet!)

OK, yeah, so… 2016 doesn’t seem like the Broncos’ year. But they are rebuilding, right? Not that I even know what I am talking about since I an about as unknowledgeable about sports as they come.

But one thing I *do* know about: BRUNCH! It’s pretty much my favorite thing if you follow our Swarm check-ins.

We were thrilled when The Palm Denver invited us to check out their Broncos brunch recently, and ride the football bus over to the game. Of course, it happened to be the coldest day of the year so far, but we didn’t mind. We’d sampled the Bloody Mary bar and dressed warm – plus the atmosphere on the bus was cozy.

Not So Silent Night Denver – KTCL Channel 93.3’s End of Year Concert

Every year, Denver’s alternative station, KTCL Channel 93.3, throws a holiday party for their fans. It’s called Not So Silent Night, and every year gets more crazy. The 2016 lineup included 888, Jr Jr, The Strumbellas, Kaleo and Empire of The Sun. All of which put on great sets, but I would have to say my favorites were openers 888 and headliners Empire of The Sun.

888

Denver band 888 won last year’s Hometown For The Holidays contest, and the biggest prize from that is opening next year’s NSSN. But this band didn’t sit around waiting for Christmas. They have been touring just about everywhere and their hit song, “Critical Mistakes” has racked up over 2.2 million listens on Spotify. I can’t wait to see what they are up to for 2017.

Slow Caves at Lost Lake in Denver

2016 has been a weird year all around, but there are still many things to celebrate. A great example is Slow Caves. This band from Fort Collins (who have been all but adopted by Denver) made some major waves this year. They released a new video and were nominated for a 2016 Westword Music Award. The guys (comprised and two brothers and four friends) have played all over the state all year long. Just last month, the band landed a deal with Old Flame Records.

I got to see them at Denver’s Lost Lake recently – an intimate room in the Bluebird District that is bringing in great acts after shaking off its dive bar roots. Slow Caves is a great rock n’ roll  show; the band is young, talented, and sincerely nice people.

They embark on a quick West Coast tour in January and then return to Lost Lake in March.

Guess who will be there???

Denver Bands: In The Whale, One Flew West and CITRA

I love the Denver music scene, right? I love it even more when every band on a show is local, and awesome. In particular, when long time friends In The Whale put on a show, since they are out on tour so much lately, it’s a priority to go see them no matter who they play with. But they had One Flew West and CITRA on the bill too – basically trifecta of awesome.

In The Whale are just two guys who somehow fill the room with great rock and roll. I still have no idea how they do it, but I think it has something to do with talent and grit. It’s been a thrill to watch them build a following all over the country at music festivals like Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza or supporting mega-acts like Jane’s Addiction and The Toadies. But when they come home, it’s still just two guys having fun playing music to a room full of friends.
