Win Riot Fest Tickets By Playing Band Bingo!

One of my favorite music festivals is fast approaching and I want to help you win Riot Fest tickets! The lineup is incredible as always, even though people would still complain about it if all four The Beatles rose from the grave and reunited for the show. Which is why, to win tickets this year, we are going to play BAND BINGO!

Air Dubai headlines Denver's First Class Fest at Summit Music Hall

First Class Fest Photos with Air Dubai & My Body Sings Electric

Recently, several Denver bands joined together for the first ever First Class Fest at Summit Music Hall in LoDo. The lineup included Air Dubai, My Body Sings Electric, The Epilogues, Povi, Panther Martin, CRL CRLL, Sur Ellz, and No Coast. How did all those bands play the Summit in one night? By ingeniously alternating between the main stage and Summit's alternative side stage, often billed as the Moon Room. The three headliners are longtime staples of the Denver music scene, and I am lucky to call them all friends. Which makes me sad that I failed yet again to capture The Epilogues, seeing as the band is playing their final show ever (also at the Summit) in August. I have tried and tried and apparently I just suck at photographing these guys. Call it a combination of low light, fast action, and high strobes - I am raising the white flag and simply attending the farewell show to enjoy the music. My Body Sings Electric has always been one of my favorite bands (see our earliest collaboration: a video I made using a small waterproof camera featuring their music that was played on the Kodak Times Square billboard for a week). And I still maintain that Oceancrest is a perfect pop song, even with the dark theme of assisted suicide. Air Dubai reunited for the show and we all could not be happier. These guys are so seriously great live - and lucky for us, they are making new music together as well. The energy they bring to a room is palpable from the first minute they walk on stage throughout every second of their show. I know most of the members have side projects - go see them all for sure - but when an Air Dubai show pops up - BE THERE.

Tons of Westword Music Showcase (WMS) Photos

The 2016 Westword Music Showcase was another killer day in Denver. A ton of local bands played early in the day and national headliners filled the main stage at night. In my opinion, far too many people only show up later and miss some of the best musicians Colorado has to offer, but sadly this year I did not get around to see as many as I would have liked either.

Riot Fest Denver 2016: Full Schedule & Single Day Tickets

I almost hate to think about how quickly Riot Fest is approaching because that means the end of summer will be here before we know it. This music festival features punk, rock, alternative, metal, plus hip-hop and celebrates its fourth year in Denver this Labor Day, but has rocked Chicago since 2005. I have been lucky enough to photograph all years here, from out on the plains in Byers to the latest fun at National Western Stockshow. Riot Fest announced the final line-up this week, including who would appear on what day and the ability to purchase single day tickets. (We bought 3-day VIP at early bird prices because they are worth every penny.)
Denver Comic Con 2016 was a huge success. Check out all these fun photos from Denver's premier pop culture, cosplay, and comics event!

One thing I love about Denver Comic Con is how everyone shows up - every type of person - and everyone has fun. This year was no exception, with attendance rates approaching 115,000 at early estimates. Pop Culture Classroom, which puts on the event, is a Denver-based education nonprofit that says its mission is “to ignite a love of learning, increase literacy, celebrate diversity and build community through the tools of popular culture and self-expression.” That is exactly what we saw at Comic Con.
Nate Staniforth Interview: Real Magic Tour

Nate Staniforth Interview: Real Magic Tour

A few weeks ago, I was invited to a Nate Staniforth show here in Denver. I didn't know what to expect, really, because I don't think I have seen a magician live, in person, ever. I mean, other than when I was a kid and stuff. Nate's site specifically warns you the show is not for children, but that is not to imply that it's NSFW other than a stray curse word here and there. What he means is that there are no top hats, or rabbits, or sawing of women in half. It's a Ted talk filled with Nate's personality while he helps us remember to believe in magic again. I was lucky enough to meet him in person after the show and then get on the phone with him last week. He's a friendly guy who is willing to talk honestly about magicians, how he got to this profession and where he wants to go. Nate Staniforth Interview: Real Magic Tour
