Alice In Winterland: Photos of Fitz And The Tantrums & Gavin DeGraw

I would say that Fitz and The Tantrums are becoming my muse, but if you look at any concert photo of them – it’s not me, it’s them. They are one the most photogenic and fun bands on the planet. Which is why I was absolutely thrilled they were headlining Denver’s Alice in Winterland concert this year!

Joining FATT was Gavin DeDraw, who I had never seen live before. He primarily stayed in front of his instrument, which is where you want him. Great voice, great piano player.

This was my fourth time seeing Fitz and The Tantrums, and my second Alice in Winterland… I am of the opinion that both are just getting better and better. Can’t wait to see what Alice 105.9 has in store for 2017!

Sara Watkins & River Whyless Give Beautiful Performance at Larimer Lounge

Sara Watkins was (and is) an original member of the band Nickel Creek, but has released several solo albums over the years. Her latest, Young In All The Wrong Ways, really touched me and I listened to it on repeat many a day last year. Thus, I jumped at the chance to see her live at Larimer Lounge in Denver – only to discover that her voice is even better live than on her records. I knew that she played fiddle, but that was also mesmerizing to watch.

Extra bonus that night? River Whyless was the opening band – another group I adore.

Best Denver Concert Photos 2016

It’s been another fantastic year for me on this blog, even though 2016 hasn’t been the best year all around. I have been lucky to shoot Denver concert photos with some of the greatest photographers around, at some of the best venues Colorado has to offer. I attended 97 concerts total and worked at most of them. Eeks! I even sprained both my ankles in July (during They Might Be Giants) and managed to plow right into Riot Fest in August.

So yeah, it was a great year for Denver music and I have thousands upon thousands of photos to prove it. It was incredibly hard to whittle them down, so I hope you forgive me for being indulgent and sharing full-on 76 of my favorites with you.

The Palm Denver offer brunch and a football bus to Broncos games with complimentary valet!

The Palm Denver Brunch + Bus for Broncos Games (Free Valet!)

OK, yeah, so… 2016 doesn’t seem like the Broncos’ year. But they are rebuilding, right? Not that I even know what I am talking about since I an about as unknowledgeable about sports as they come.

But one thing I *do* know about: BRUNCH! It’s pretty much my favorite thing if you follow our Swarm check-ins.

We were thrilled when The Palm Denver invited us to check out their Broncos brunch recently, and ride the football bus over to the game. Of course, it happened to be the coldest day of the year so far, but we didn’t mind. We’d sampled the Bloody Mary bar and dressed warm – plus the atmosphere on the bus was cozy.

Not So Silent Night Denver – KTCL Channel 93.3’s End of Year Concert

Every year, Denver’s alternative station, KTCL Channel 93.3, throws a holiday party for their fans. It’s called Not So Silent Night, and every year gets more crazy. The 2016 lineup included 888, Jr Jr, The Strumbellas, Kaleo and Empire of The Sun. All of which put on great sets, but I would have to say my favorites were openers 888 and headliners Empire of The Sun.

Denver band 888 won last year’s Hometown For The Holidays contest, and the biggest prize from that is opening next year’s NSSN. But this band didn’t sit around waiting for Christmas. They have been touring just about everywhere and their hit song, “Critical Mistakes” has racked up over 2.2 million listens on Spotify. I can’t wait to see what they are up to for 2017.
