KTCL Channel 93.3’s Keggs and Eggs 2016 Photos

Every St. Patrick’s Day, our local indie radio station KTCL Channel 93.3 throws a party called Keggs & Eggs. This year it fell exactly on St. Patrick’s Day, which happened to be a Thursday, which pretty much created a four-day weekend because who wants to go back to work after drinking at 7am? The bands playing this year were locals AMZY, Saint Motel and also locals Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.

Keggs & Eggs 2016 was as awesome as ever!

The line started to queue up the day before – who wouldn’t want to see these three great bands in a small bar like LoDo’s? And green Coors Light (a sponsor of the event) was flowing right away. Nerf kicked the morning off and all the DJs were live from the event all day.

Photos: KTCL’s Not So Silent Night 2014 Denver

Every year, our local indie music station KTCL Channel 93.3 throws a song contest called Hometown For The Holidays. The winner from that gets to open for next year’s Not So Silent Night show at Broomfield’s 1st Bank Center. Past winners have included Flobots, Churchill, Air Dubai and My Body Sings Electric. This year, Modern Suspects (formerly known as Claymore Disco) got to open for Vance Joy, Half Moon Run, Fitz & The Tantrums and Cage The Elephant.

Yeah. It’s a big deal – and a huge concert.

303 Day

Yesterday was 303 Day.

Our area code in Denver is 303, so every March 3rd we Coloradans get a little local-centric, especially our indie music station, KTCL Channel 93.3, which plays bands from all over the state all day long.

Another cool thing that KTCL does is hold a contest every December called Hometown for the Holidays, where bands compete for free studio time and the opportunity to open for next year’s Not So Silent Night concert. Last year’s winners were Churchill, who then opened for Of Monsters and Men and Fun. Seriously.

The three finalists in the 2012 HTFTH were Monroe Monroe, My Body Sings Electric and Rachel & The Kings. Two of which have played my fundraiser, Tellerpalooza, in the past; one of which is playing this year. My Body Sings won, but, damn. All of them killed it.

I am so lucky to live in a town full of music.

I am so lucky to photograph music.

Long live 303 Day.

Interview with Dan Aid: New Album, New Direction

If you have been around the Denver music scene for any length of time, you have probably seen one of Dan Aid‘s bands. I have photographed his most recent group, Wiredogs, on many occasions and was excited to hear his solo EP, The Quiet Place. It’s different from his punk rock roots. Moody. Mellow. Dare I say… pretty?

Very cool to see a different side of someone you would think, from a Wiredogs show, is a aggressive person. But he’s not. He’s very approachable. Humble. Dare I say… nice?

We met up last week during Rachael Yamagata‘s show at Larimer Lounge to chat.
