It's always a special night when two of your favorite Denver bands play together, especially at a fun venue like the Bluebird Theater on Colfax. Dragoneer was having an album release show and Eldren joined them for a packed crowd of longtime fans. If You…
Denver band One Flew West has been around for several years now, and it's always awesome to see them live in concert. They were at the Bluebird Theater for the release of their new EP Trial and Error last week and the place was packed. Fellow Coloradans Silver & Gold and Compass & Cavern opened the night. The guys played a wide variety of tunes - including songs from the new EP (of course), older faves like "Kind of Love" and "Had It All," as well as a new one that lead singer Linden Jackson had written only a few days before. Videos are something this band is really good at - so be sure to check out their YouTube Channel. Especially since new videos of songs from the show are due out very soon. It's been amazing to watch One Flew West grow as a band. I am lucky to have photographed them several times before, but this was their first headlining show at the iconic east Colfax venue. Based on how much ass was kicked, I know there will be many more.

I have seen Ian Mahan perform live a few times but hadn't had a chance to photograph him until his show last week at Lost Lake Lounge. Ian recently released a new single, "Breakaway," but was also pretty prolific in 2017 with two EPs. He writes some great songs, but is also fun to see live. It's usually a stripped down concert, which IMO shows off his songs best. Although he's the kind of songwriter that it would be cool to see a full orchestra behind him too. (Maybe later in 2018???) Either way, keep an eye on Ian Mahan and get out to see him when you can.
Ten years is a long time for anything - especially a band. My Body Sings Electric celebrated a decade together this month with a series of shows up and down the front range, including Denver's Marquis Theater. They shared the festivities with Slow Caves and Modern Suspects, who made the night three times as fun. We've been friends with MBSE almost as long as they have been a band, so there was no way we were missing this show. I have talked about them so often, you'd think this blog was solely about them. But perhaps my favorite was this interview with Jason from a few years ago, where we find out how stinky Jeff is and that Brandon is missing some socks. Congratulations guys, on ten years - and here is to ten more! ❤️
