These holidays have come to be necessary recesses from the competitive grind of undergraduate studies. The University of Colorado at Boulder has held a notorious reputation for raucous partying, debauchery, and almost everything else your...
Global Dance Festival is coming back to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado for three days this weekend. Usually this fest is the Denver rave scene's hottest summer event. But this year, they’re switching up their game plan a bit. Not to worry though, all of you bass heads and ravers will still get your fix. Friday’s artists make this...
After an outstanding weekend of shows in Denver I couldn't bear to return to Boulder empty handed. It wouldn't be right. On Friday night, I was lucky enough to snag a ticket to Griz's sold out show at the Ogden Theater. Unexpectedly, Two Fresh played a surprise set that I thoroughly enjoyed. The next night I returned to the...

But while...
Thursday’s show at Cervantes’ was anything but expected. Best of all, the show was only $20, and it was really two shows packed into one.

The big elephant-in-the-room word on everyone's mind in Colorado this summer has definitely been FIRE.

Bassnectar came back to Morrison, CO last Saturday for the second night of his SOLD OUT two-night Red Rocks run.

As all of us in Colorado are aware, this coming weekend is 4/20, and with that comes a slew of concerts to celebrate the "high" holiday.

Last Thursday night I caught an amazing Chromeo's "Night Falls" tour show with opener Mayer Hawthorne and The County. Chromeo made quite the entrance on Thursday night.

I almost had trouble getting my camera into...
