Technically neither Airplane Mode nor The Outer Vibe are Denver bands, but we claim them. Dave Wiskus from Airplane Mode used to live in Colorado – we first met during that time – although he and his bandmates are now based in New York City. And I met The Outer Vibe on Twitter but finally got together at a festival several years ago. Since then, they have played here often – we adopted them as well.
Both bands joined up at the Marquis Theatre this summer for a show that was full of friends and family. The Marquis is one of my favorite venues in Denver and not just because the bartenders know what kind of beer I like. It’s a small place that can hold a lot of people – or a lot of balloons, as in the case of Airplane Mode.
Both bands not only make great music and have awesome live shows, they make fun videos – so be sure to check them out online as well!
