Life has really gotten in the way of me editing photos lately. Project Pabst Denver happened back in May – I apologize for the tardiness of this post. That is no reflection on the fun; our favorite hipster beer pulled out the stops this year.
Headliners Ice Cube, Phantogram, Danny Brown and Kurt Vile alternated stages on either end of Larimer Street while a huge silver unicorn statue served as the easiest meeting point for a music festival ever.
“No, I’m next to Blucifer’s cousin. Really.”
Project Pabst is a festival series now playing in four cities: Denver, Portland, Philadelphia and Atlanta. The other three locations are from August – October, so you still have time to get there. Highlights there include Iggy Pop, Beck, The Menzingers, Dinosaur Jr. and Peaches.
The highlights in Denver was, for me, by far, Phantogram. The last time I saw Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter, it was near pitch black – so daylight was a vastly different experience. They still killed it.
The “I’m having a blast up here” award was a tie between Danny Brown and STRFKR. And who can not enjoy watching Ice Cube do his thing? No one, that’s who.
We’re already looking forward to next May when Project Pabst hopefully returns to Denver. It’s becoming a real running start on summer and clearly I still haven’t caught up yet.
