VALDEZ + Good Family, Slap Happy & Dead Orchids at Larimer Lounge

It's pretty amazing when people are so talented they put out awesome side-projects in addition to their regular full-time band. Such is the case with Nate Valdez (of In The Whale) who has recently launched a solo project aptly called VALDEZ. If you have ever…
LP - Denver Concert Photos and Review

LP at Ogden Theatre Denver

I am not sure how singer songwriter LP has slipped under my radar for so long, seeing as she has been recording her own music and writing major hits since the early 00's, but I am now fully aware of how incredible she is. LP…

Half•Alive and Joan at Globe Hall

Have you heard "Still Feel" by Half•Alive yet? If not, go listen now. I'll wait. It's one of those infectious tunes that you put on repeat for hours and never get tired of. That's pretty much what this band feels like in concert too. They…

Best Things To Do In Denver From A Local

I can't believe it's taken me this long to write this post. We moved to Denver in 1994 and ever since then, we've been making recommendations for friends who come to visit. Recently, I started a spreadsheet to help me remember  – and finally, the…

Best Places to Get Maryland Steamed Crabs

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,…

Dear Mom

Recently, I was discussing with a friend how time feels elastic. That sometimes things move so fast and sometimes so slow - but also that you can feel both at the same time. It's exactly how I feel on the second anniversary of your death.…

All Our Photos From London

In the old days, I used this blog to share the personal details of our lives, especially with my family back east. I also used it just to save my memories since I have so much trouble remembering things. I have vowed to get back…

Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein at Bluebird Denver

I was lucky enough to see the Misfits reunion at Denver's Riot Fest in 2016. Which, don't get me wrong, was really fun - but seeing punk bands in a small venue like the Bluebird Theater is a whole different thing. Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein brought…

Was able to get on the phone today with Josh Katz, front man for the band Badflower. They open for The Wrecks on November 14th at Denver's Marquis Theatre, but sorry - the show is already sold out. Fear not, Badflower returns to Denver in…
Smashing Pumpkins - Concert Photos - Denver

Smashing Pumpkins at Denver’s Pepsi Center

I had never seen Smashing Pumpkins until now. Sure, I was able to see Billy Corgan solo last year and while he always seems like the driving force of the band, the band (almost) all back together is truly a sight to behold. Sure, Billy…
