It's always fun when The Unlikely Candidates come to town. Double-fun when they play a venue in Denver that I have never been to before. The Roxy in Five Points usually hosts hip-hop acts and it just hadn't worked out for me to photograph there…
There have been a lot of great double-header shows coming through Denver lately. Vinyl Theatre and Finish Ticket were at the Bluebird for a sold out show that pretty much made the street shake.
Finish TicketI have photographed Finish Ticket before, at the Higher Ground Music Festival in 2014, and they were even better the second time around. Their new single "Color," is picking up steam but the previous album Tears You Apart is a killer listen as well. Added to the fun tunes is a GREAT live show. Lead singer Brendan Hoye is expressive and all over the stage, which frankly makes is hard for me to catch the other members of the band. (i.e. I promise I am not obsessed with him, as most of the shots are of him). Finish Ticket has several more tour dates this summer, including Bonnaroo - so be sure to check them out.
