Review: Decadence NYE 2016

Late December in Colorado is always a gamble weather wise. Last year, NYE brought with it sub-zero temperatures, leaving revelers to run from place to place. So when this year, it is 30 degrees instead of -10, it feels almost balmy. We head to the Colorado Convention Center with smiles on our faces, eager to greet the New Year by dancing two glorious, EDM-filled nights away. Walking into Decadence this year is a treat – giant white jellyfish hang from the ceiling, leading attendees from one stage to another, makingRead More

After spearheading the multi-trillion-dollar researchRead More
The Hi-Dive in Denver, Colorado is quiet as the opening band packs up their own equipment and exits the stage. A quiet electricity hangs in the air; the sounds of clanking classes and friendly conversation replacing the music that was just being played. In the small, standing-room-only venue, you won’t find any top-40 artists or teenaged fanboys and girls waiting around to meet their idols.The Hi-Dive is a bar, and half of the patrons are just there to drink a few beers and check out whatever artists happen to be performingRead More
While Taking Back Sunday finishes up their VIP acoustic set and meet-and-greet at the Summit Music Hall in Denver, Colorado, Greg Barnett, wearing a plaid shirt and jeans, hangs around by the merchandise table. The twentysomethings who have come to relive their high school years and the eyeliner-clad tweens who have come to meet their idols gather around John Nolan and Adam Lazzara. Meanwhile, Greg and the rest of the Menzingers, a four-piece punk band from Pennsylvania, chat and laugh, fairly anonymous figures to the fawning group that has gathered. But whatRead More
Entering its fourth year in existence at the Denver Convention Center, Decadence NYE is embarking on what may be its best run yet. Last year’s lineup boasted some of the biggest names in dance music (Tiesto, Dada Life, and Above and Beyond to name a few), but the Decadence organizers have done it again. The 2014 lineup is star-studded and offers a variety of sounds for dance music fans. With festival-headlining names like Zedd and Kaskade, Grammy-nominated Disclosure, and Colorado favorites Bassnectar and Big Gigantic, Decadence 2014 is surely the EDMRead More

Experiencing Sonic Sensations with Mogwai

In modern music, true musicianship, true composition, has largely gone by the wayside. Relatable lyrics, power chords, and computer-automated sheen has become the norm. However, there exist several groups, generally categorized as “post-rock,” that continue to focus on the music – the real nuances and complexities of melody, progression, and instrumentation – to create sonic soundscapes that allow a listener to truly lose themselves in the sound and the environment it creates. Perhaps the best known band in the genre is Austin’s Explosions in the Sky, who have found breakthroughRead More
In Portland, Oregon there exists a famous locale known for its trademark pink boxes and interesting culinary creations. Voodoo Doughnut is well-known to Oregon locals, but until recently, the eclectic eatery had yet to expand past the borders of the Beaver State. No more. Two months ago, the famous chain headed a little bit East and opened up its new, fourth location in Denver, Colorado, only a stone’s throw from my home in Boulder. Naturally, I had to go see what all the fuss was about. When my girlfriend and IRead More
It was a passing conversation that led me to an interview with Denver DJ Treyy G. I was talking to a co-worker about a shared love for EDM and he mentioned that he knew Treyy and I suggested doing an interview, and a few weeks later, here we are. Trey Garrett is 20 years old. He has tattoos on every inch of his body (that I can see), and large gauges in his ears. Tall, but slim, he might look intimidating to some, but the second he opens his mouth,Read More

#MCM – Bobby Brown

Lets clear your Monday blues, ladies, with an Olympic man crush by the name of Bobby Brown. -Bobby Brown- Twitter: @Bobby_Brown1 Instagram: Bobby_Brown1 Known for: His freestyle skiing, USA Olympian status, and adorable smile! -Bobby is a Colorado native born in Denver, and currently residing in Breckenridge. This is his first winter Olympic games, but his career really began to soar after the 2010 Winter X Games ,where he was the first skier to win two gold medals in one X Games(big air and slope style). In 2010 he also placed 2nd andRead More
This weekend was dominated by Brits and Seahawks. Massive forehands and aggressive blitzes. Beating the favored team and… beating the favored team, in both cases. In tennis, Great Britain took the Davis Cup tie over the United States with only one player ranking inside the top 100. How? They hit the ball really really hard. On Friday, James Ward shocked the crowd at Petco Park by defeating the much higher ranked Sam Querrey. The match that needed to be won by the United States was lost, and there was noRead More
Eww. That was one horrible, one-sided, bore of a football game we were all forced to endure on Sunday. Super Bowl XLVIII, for all its hype and seemingly endless storylines, straight-up flatlined. It took all of 12 seconds and one offensive snap for the Broncos to be on their heels and the Seahawks to be on the attack. And after Manny Ramirez‘s errant snap fluttered over Peyton Manning’s head and into the end zone for a safety, for all intents and purposes, the game was over. The writing was on theRead More
It’s finally time for the moment we’ve been waiting for since August: Super Bowl XLVIII. The Denver Broncos against Seattle Seahawks; the two teams we’ve expected to go this far from the beginning. And while I’ve already broken down the Big Game in detail in another column, I wanted to give y’all some gambling advice for Super Bowl Sunday. I’ll begin by giving you my ATS and Over/Under picks, and then you’ll get the added bonus of getting some suggestions for ridiculous prop bets you can make – such as, whatRead More

Super Bowl XLVIII – Breaking Down the Matchups

Alright. So, the dust has settled, the weak have been eliminated, the Crabtrees have been insulted, the Bradys have been bested, and here we are: right where we thought we would be back in August. Broncos vs. Seahawks. The two #1 seeds. The two teams that many have thought were the class of their respective conferences since before this season began. We couldn’t possibly ask for a better matchup: the league’s #1 offense against the league’s #1 defense. The veteran, record-setting QB against the fresh, young swagger of the SeattleRead More

AFC & NFC Championship ATS Picks

Time for the NFL’S final four. Championship Sunday. And shockingly, the four teams thought to be the best back in August are still standing. Broncos-Patriots, and Seahawks-Niners. Let’s do this. I sucked majorly last week going 0-3-1, but hey, nobody’s perfect. All of the games except for the smackdown the Patriots laid on the Colts could have easily gone the other way, as far as the spread is concerned, SO I’M OKAY WITH IT AND DON’T MAKE FUN OF ME. As always, these are not predictions on who will WIN the gamesRead More
