This September will mark our fourth visit to Riot Fest Denver, and even though the line up hasn’t been released yet, news of the Misfits Reunion tour has been announced which includes a stop in Denver at… you guessed it! RIOT FEST 2016!

I remember being 16 and smitten with this really cool guy who, thankfully, taught me a great deal about music- how to appreciate it, what top 40 didn’t sound like…you know, important things. He was headed to Detroit to see this band called The Misfits, and so one of my best gals, Mallory, and I drove to the complete opposite side of the state of Michigan to see some horror punk band I had never even heard of. Needless to say, it was a memorable show.
If this announcement doesn’t have you opening a new tab and purchasing your tickets to Riot Fest right now, I’m not sure what will. We view this as a once in a lifetime sort of show, and can’t wait to check them out. Definitely one of our fave bands, and it will be amazing to see them live this September.
Our beautiful Capitol building here in Denver. Spring is in bloom, finally!
Great question. And, yes – we have an answer for you! Well, a few. You may call them excuses, but we’ll refer to them as time-sucking life events that trumped our fun little website… Continue reading
The Gothic Theatre will be featuring Infected Mushroom this Thursday and Friday. Thursday will be their ‘Almost Acoustic’ Album Release Party of the new album Converting Vegetarians II, and Friday will be Animatronica Live. Get stoked! This is going to be two nights of ridiculous!!
But seriously. Strolling and wandering around Denver is one of our most favorite things to do. There are so many places to explore for little to zero cash, and so much to learn. Continue reading
Better question, where has Denverspeax gone?
Here is a little update on what we have been up to.
We got engaged!!
We hiked a few mountains:
Took some epic road trips!
Went camping all over the place.
And enjoyed some music with friends.
Here is to staying awesome and keeping cool.
This weekend, I headed out to Breckenridge to meet the ladies of Tone It Up Colorado and regain fulfillment from nature. Check out these stunning views from our hike today via Pennsylvania Gulch in White River National Forest:
Denver can furnish plenty of shenanigans, which leads to nonsense in general, and often ends in tomfoolery. The Underground Music Showcase is a weekend long event that will provide plethora of mischief inspired incidents. Whatever your inclination may be The UMS is a DO NOT MISS event for all music lovers and concert goers around town.
The Underground Music Showcase (The UMS) is Denver, Colorado’s premier indie festival, now in its 15th year. The UMS is known not only for its focus on local talent and the local community (its a non-profit event and benefits the Denver Post Community Foundation) but also for the diversity and crazy high energy of the performances you can see throughout its tenure. This year’s incarnation showcases over 400 local and national act performances, across 4 days, in nearly 20 venues. (Source: http://theums.com/ About The UMS)

We totally get it. You took a job that would not only get you here, but allow you to STAY here. And, why wouldn’t you? Denver is a beautiful place full of growth and opportunity. Hell, it’s #4 on Forbes’ Best Places for Businesses and Careers.
Sometimes staring at the mountains from a cubicle located on the 23rd floor of some fancy building downtown isn’t enough (damn Millenials, amiright?). Sometimes the toll a job takes on your heart, mind, body, and soul isn’t worth whatever ridiculous amount its paying, and you simply need to take a break from that lifestyle.
Like we said – we get it. And, almost three months ago, Steve did it.
This weekend is jam packed full of amazing Denver activities!!! Make your weekend EPIC!!
Are you excited to find out who has Denver’s Top Taco? How about running City Park in your underwear? We hear Zine Fest will not disappoint the avid reader. You could ride your bike to the South Platte RiverFest and make sure you get some BikeLove while you are in the area. Find great locally made goods at the Summer Flea. Our good friends from I Get Down Co. will be there. We hear Denver will be HOT, so take a slide down the Urban Slide to cool off. When the sun sets Saturday, get Hooked on an outdoor movie downtown. Once you have run out of energy, chill out Sunday evening at City Park Jazz to end the most epic Denver weekend ever!
