It's fantastic when bands you love give back to their fans. AMZY did it in early 2019 when they held an intimate concert at the Third and James recording studio for 50 fans and performed acoustically. The night ended up getting fairly emotional as the…

Both Bryan and I grew up in Maryland, and when you are from Maryland, you eat Maryland steamed crabs. But since we moved to Denver 24 years ago, we were a little rusty on the best places to go. Over the past year or so,…

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…
