Win Hunter Hayes Concert Tickets for Colorado Springs Show

Note: Hunter Hayes is providing concert tickets for me and the contest winner. Words are mine.
Did you watch the Grammy's this year? You may remember a remarkable young man performing his song, "Invisible" with inspirational quotes flying all around him as he sang his heart out? Yup, Hunter Hayes. My music tastes usually run a bit more indie but I always love good singing and songwriting. I have listened to all of Hunter's music (pre-Grammys even) and it's really beautiful.

Denver’s Underground Music Showcase (UMS) Announces Initial Lineup

It's become a ritual of summer for many of us to at least take Friday off. Because starting Thursday night in late July, so many bands have taken over south Broadway in Denver, what's the point of working? The Denver Post hosts UMS (Underground Music Showcase) again this year and promises 400+ bands over four days for the extraordinarily cheap price of $50. (We already bought our pre-sale tickets for cheaper than that.)

Riot Fest Denver 2013 -Day 2 Photos

Note: Riot Fest provided tickets for the event but all words and photos are mine.
The second day of Riot Fest at May Farms was quite an adventure. The wind kicked up, so the whole crowd (including me and Monika) looked like extras from a Clash video. Later in the day, a gigantic thunderstorm opened up over our heads and I ended up folding over my son in the parking lot to protect him from pelting rain. Yup, a day we'll never forget! Especially since the music was so awesome.

Neon Splash Dash Denver Flashback Portraits

Note: Tickets to the race were provided by Neon Splash Dash. Samsung Mobile provided me with a Galaxy Camera.
This summer Neon Splash Dash came to Denver for the first time. I don't do too much running unless I am chased, but the thought of glow in the dark photography was super appealing to me. The event itself was super fun, because we were with our best friends and the general idea was super fun. The actual execution on the ground was a bit disorganized (for example, there was a massive storm right before the race and there was no information about delays via their social media channels... or there was a parking fee that was not listed on their web site and we had to leave to find and ATM). If we went again next year I would ask if they were looking for families to attend or if they wanted a party atmosphere. Personally, it's a night event, I would rather leave the kids at home, serve drinks and let people dance while they are crazy covered with paint.
