Best Denver Concert Photos 2017

The past year was hard for me personally, as it was for much of America. The good news is, music helps you through the tough times (Related: 2017 Playlist). And while I certainly didn’t attend as many concerts as last year, I had a great time when I was out.

Heading to Treefort and Lost Lake were major highlights – and it’s a definite goal to continue mixing music and travel. We still had our awesome local festivals like Westword Music Showcase and Project Pabst – plus a new venue exploded on the scene in Ruby Hill, so I spent half the summer with Levitt Pavilion.

It was an honor and a joy to photograph concerts all around Denver, hanging out with awesome local bands and shooting some of my all-time favorite acts in 2017. I can’t wait to see what is in store for 2018 and beyond.

Gary Numan Concert Photos - Denver 2017

Photos of Gary Numan from 2017 Savage Tour

In the beginning of the year, I walked out of the DNCE show amazed at the performance I had just witnessed. It was incredible. I feel like Gary Numan wrapped up 2017 just like that for me – with an electric display of music and charisma at Denver’s Gothic Theatre.

Most people know Gary Numan from the song “Cars,” which is a staple of great 80s music. But, if you delve into his library, there is so much more than that – especially if you lean towards industrial a la Trent Reznor. (Gary and Trent have become great collaborators over the years.) The new album, Savage (Songs From A Broken World) is a dark look to a possible post-apocalyptic world. I personally find many of the songs to be quite beautiful, too – so perhaps there is hope for us yet.

As far as Gary Numan in concert? It was chaotic and seriously fun. A great way to end a year that felt like the world was going roll right off its axis.

Hometown For The Holidays Photos 2017 #HTFTH

Yet again, KTCL Channel 93.3‘s Hometown For The Holidays concert pretty much was the Christmas party for our Denver music scene. The three finalists (Iolite, VYNYL and Wildermiss) from the annual song contest performed, and every single one killed it. But in addition to the performances, many local musicians showed up to cheer on and hang out.

I have no idea how Nerf was able to tell the difference in the crowd (he actually used an app to measure the noise level and I know it was really close) … but in the end, the “live crowd fave” was Wildermiss, who walked away with the top prize from the music survey votes too. In my opinion, any of the three could have won – or any of the top ten, for that matter. 2017 was stellar for Denver bands.

Congrats to everyone involved, and here’s to another great year!

Say Anything Photos From Summit Denver

The band Say Anything was formed in 2000 by Max Bemis and has released seven albums to date. This year marked the 10th anniversary of In Defense of the Genre, so the band spent two nights at Summit Music Hall playing three albums. I was there for the second night and there was no slowing them down.

I love seeing a band whose fans clearly adore them and this was definitely the case with Say Anything. Lyrics were being sung back to the band loud and clear, while Max was back and forth on the stage connecting with as many people as possible.

The band continues their tour into 2018 so be sure to check them out!

My Body Sings Electric 10th Anniversary with Slow Caves + Modern Suspects

Ten years is a long time for anything – especially a band. My Body Sings Electric celebrated a decade together this month with a series of shows up and down the front range, including Denver’s Marquis Theater. They shared the festivities with Slow Caves and Modern Suspects, who made the night three times as fun.

We’ve been friends with MBSE almost as long as they have been a band, so there was no way we were missing this show. I have talked about them so often, you’d think this blog was solely about them. But perhaps my favorite was this interview with Jason from a few years ago, where we find out how stinky Jeff is and that Brandon is missing some socks.

Congratulations guys, on ten years – and here is to ten more!  ❤️
