Westword Music Showcase (WMS) 2015 Photos

The problem with being a part-time concert photographer and full-time web developer is that you are constantly trying to catch up on editing photos. Denver's indie newspaper Westword held its annual music festival in June and I had thousands of photos to get through! The show itself is always awesome - chock full of a huge variety of local bands during the day and national headliners who play into the night. For me, it's one of my very favorite days of summer because you hear so much music, as well as discover new bands you have wanted to see for a while. There is no way to get around to everything, so check out the lineup from 2015's WMS. Below are bands I was able to photograph, all of whom were amazing. (DJ Alf agrees). DJ Alf at WMS

2016 UPDATE: USE "GREEBLE" FOR $5 OFF GENERAL ADMISSION!

It's no secret that I am a big fan of our local indie paper, Westword. I especially love how their new(ish) music editor Kiernan Maletsky has evolved his section into a mix of local and national talent - which is a good overall description of the Westword Music Showcase. Headliners include Flume, The Black Angels, MisterWives, Robert DeLong, Wave Racer and Roadkill Ghost Choir. Over 100 local bands will also be playing, including some of my favorites like: Bianca Mikahn, Bud Bronson & the Good Timers, Chemistry Club, Dirty Femmes, Edison, Filthy T, Glowing House, Ian Cooke, In The Whale, Joy Subtraction, Modern Suspects, The Outfit, Post Paradise, The Raven & The Writing Desk, SF1, Strange Americans, Vices I Admire, Wheelchair Sports Camp and Wiredogs.

My 40 Best Concert Photos from Denver 2014

This past year was amazing for music and concert photography in Denver. We are lucky to be one of those "crossroads" kind of towns, so we end up in the path of many tours... but also, as I say all the time: Denver has a GREAT music scene. So, my round up of best photographs includes bands from all over as well as Colorado, in pretty much every venue Denver has to offer. Thanks to all the cool people who have helped me, encouraged me and rocked my world musically this year. Here are my 40 favorite concert photos of 2014, in no particular order.

Interview with Dan Aid of Wiredogs

It's Denver band love week! Recently I chatted with Dan Aid, lead singer of Wiredogs about their upcoming album and accompanying release show at The Marquis Theater. As always, he was candid, smart and funny. If you have never seen them, please get down to the show. They are incredible live. I know I always say that, but it's true. And not just because their drummer is my best friend's brother.
Background on the band for those who don't know? We've been a true band for about a year and a half now. I say "true" because we changed our name from The Hate to Wiredogs and really started to hone in our sound around that time. We call ourselves a punk band, but I think with this new record we've morphed into more of a rock band (whatever that means). This past year we got to play with a lot of kick-ass bands like The Bronx, Fucked Up, Authority Zero. We also got asked to be part of the Future of Music Policy Summit out in DC, and to play Riot Fest. There were a lot of great opportunities for us and also some growing pains, but I think we’re finally turning into the band we all want to be.

2014 Was A Really, Really Good Year

We had some bad years. Primarily they started with my mom getting sick and ending with me getting sick. 2013 started to turn things around, but last year was good. Really, really good. Sure, we are still struggling out of a financial hole from those…
