At the beginning of Fall, I was able to catch The Luka State playing at Denver's Lost Lake Lounge on Colfax. I really wanted to see them because of their high energy on recorded music. In person, the band did not disappoint (see photos below).…
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.
