You know Ben Roy? Most of Denver does, as a comedian from The Grawlix. But his band SPELLS is also gaining attention – only partially because Ben yells about them a lot. I like to go see them a lot, because they are awesome. And loud.
Denver is becoming a hotbed for comedy as well as music, so I love how the two are intertwining like some magical unicorn horn. You can often see comedians at local musicians’ shows and vice versa.
When I asked Ben if I could come shoot their recent Hi-Dive show, he promised not to smash my camera in the process. As you can see from the photos, he came close, but really it was my fault for putting myself in the middle of these guys.
Hell, that is part of the fun.
