Denver Nerd Prom 2017 – MC Lars, MegaRan & Andy Rok

I have to apologize to Nerd Prom Denver for the lateness of this post, seeing as the geekfest actually happened in April. But their founder Andy Rok is out at the Wonder Woman movie with my husband this very moment, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to catch up – and relive the fun.

This year’s headliners were MC Lars and Megaran, who seem to have been put on this earth to perform together. Nerd Prom 2017 also included Rocket Surgeons, DJ Boyhollow, hosts Alf & Rick as well as Andy’s own band The Real Deal. Continue reading…

Photos: Minus The Bear with Beach Slang at Summit Music Hall

I fell in love with Minus The Bear on their 2010 album Omni, but that was actually their fourth. In 2017 the band released Voids, their first album without drummer Erin Tate. Leader singer Jake Snider’s vocals are just as distinctive and the group is just as good live. They played Denver’s Summit Music Hall with the super loud and super fun group Beach Slang.

Minus The Bear continues their tour in the UK and then comes back to the US this summer, finishing out at Riot Fest Chicago. Continue reading…

Travel to Boise for Treefort Music Festival

Treefort Music Festival is a Great Way to Discover Boise (Concert Photos)

Note: My trip was sponsored by Visit Boise. However, all words and images are mine.

I had heard of Treefort Music Festival in recent years because Denver bands have been steadily playing it, and speaking highly of it. I was thrilled when the Boise Visitor’s Bureau asked me to come in, cover the festival and explore what the city had to offer.

Boise is a small city nestled in the Idaho mountains, with a ton of charm. Its population is approaching 225,000 – so there is enough hustle and bustle to feel the energy but not so much to be overwhelmed. Especially “during Treefort time,” a phrase I heard many locals say as they met up for drinks before bands started each day. Continue reading…

Green Day - Against Me - Concert Photos Denver

Green Day & Against Me Concert Photos from 1st Bank Denver

I have wanted to see Green Day in concert for a good long while. It was insane to finally photograph them along with Against Me at 1st Bank Center recently – this band may have been around for over 30 years, but they are still kicking much ass. This was the first stop in Denver for the Revolution Radio tour; they return to Fiddler’s Green in August.

Nope. Age has not slowed these guys down. It was hard to keep up with Billie Joe Armstrong and he ran all over the stage as well as up and down the catwalk. Several times he brought fans up on stage and encouraged them to stage dive.

I admit that *I* showed my age, tearing up as I thought about how any of those kids could have been my own 14 year old son.

Keggs & Eggs Concert Photos 2017: Green Beer & Great Music

St. Patrick’s Day is a big holiday in many cities. In Denver, it means Keggs & Eggs, a morning concert put on by KTCL Channel 93.3.

Morning… meaning REALLY REALLY REALLY early. This year, the show moved to Blake Street Tavern but continued to be as packed as ever, even with an overflow parking lot and jumbotron to broadcast out there. There was tons (and I mean tons) of green Coors Light and great bands to enjoy it with. American Authors, Bishop Briggs and Bryce Fox played throughout the day and Denver’s great weather delivered – with temperatures near 80. Spring has officially arrived! Continue reading…
