KTCL Big Gig Featuring Panic! At The Disco, Twenty One Pilots, American Authors
Channel 93.3 is a big deal around Denver. They have launched the careers of many bands (most notably The Fray, but I could name a ton). When I was at Firefly recently and met the Unlikely Candidates, their first question for me and Monika when they found out we were from Denver was, “Oh, do you guys know Nerf?”
Yeah. Everyone knows Nerf.
Not only do we all know Nerf because of the local band support, but also because the station, from top to bottom, has seriously the best taste in music. Except for when they were playing “Save Tonight” three times a day. But I forgave them when they were announcing the Big Gig 2014 lineup on April Fools Day and told the world Eagle Eye Cherry was on the bill to basically make me shut up about it.
Here’s to you @Greeblehaus

That awesome taste in music was never more apparent as this year’s Big Gig (real) lineup.

Locals Only Stage: Magic Man, Post Paradise, Chemistry Club, Glowing House & Pandas and People
The show was back at Fiddler’s Green, who boasted about a huge renovation. I didn’t *see* much, but I *heard* a vast improvement in the sound system on the lawn, which the biggest thing they had always been lacking, so I am glad they put the where it was needed – although a coat of paint this winter would be really nice too. Either way, the music was so awesome all over the place, I couldn’t keep up and there was no way to photograph all the bands.
Walk The Moon
Twenty One Pilots
Panic! At The Disco
Last band of the night was Panic! At The Disco, who, in a nutshell, rules the world. After I was done photographing for the night, I was able to go back and hang with Bryan and Monika and really feel the show. I walked up right as Panic started singing Bohemian Rhapsody. Not many bands have the balls to even attempt that song, much less absolutely nail it. Bryan caught it on video, although he missed the beginning because he was just as stunned as I was. Needless to say they were an absolute joy to photograph, listen to, watch, sing along with, everything.
So there you have it. Big Gig 2014, as much as I could photograph. An epic lineup of great bands. Music and friends and a whole lot of sweat (did I mention it was close to 100 degrees that day?). An awesome Denver radio station who knows how to pick em.
You were not kidding about EPIC!!!!
Thank you Amy! Were you able to make it?

You are right – these are the best fro you I have seen yet.
