Artist Watch: Rainbow Kitten Surprise

Walking into the Fox Theater, you can definitely tell you’re in Boulder, Colorado. Tattoos, wide brim hats, and beards: the classic recipe for a Rainbow Kitten Surprise concert.  With a name that never fails to raise eyebrows and initiate some giggles, RKS has a unique sound that melds well with their namesake. Originating in their college dorm room, this 5 piece band from North Carolina has taken the indie music scene by storm, reinventing what this genre means to many. With bluegrass, rock, and rap influences mixed into unexpected andRead More

Review: Global Dance Festival 2017

Global Dance Festival (GDF) celebrated its 15th anniversary at a new venue – the parking lot in front of Sports Authority Field (home of the Denver Broncos). Despite the new location and overall new vibe, the festival wowed thousands of attendees, yet again. While Red Rocks is one of the most beautiful and acoustically perfect venues in the world, it’s understandable why a festival like Global would look elsewhere in order to expand. At the new location, GDF was able to sprawl across flat land, adding large and impressive artRead More

Preview: Global Dance Festival 2017

Colorado’s biggest dance music event of the summer gets a change of scenery to celebrate its 15th anniversary – Global Dance Festival (GDF) moves from Red Rocks Amphitheater to Sports Authority Field this year. GDF ’17 will take place July 21-22 and will transform the Broncos’ stadium into every raver’s dream. Going for an Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)-like vibe, Global is changing things up by adding art installations, a silent disco, a shaded arcade (encouraging people to take breaks from the intense Colorado sun), multiple food trucks and various carnivalRead More

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

A fixture in the Colorado dance music scene for a while now, Denver-based Producer Illenium has gone from local favorite to critically acclaimed over the last few years. The twenty-something DJ has been turning heads not only with the high profile remixes that he takes on (i.e. Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers and Say It by Flume), but also with his original music (Illenium released his full-length album Ashes in February, 2016). Despite being a staple in the Denver EDM world, I hadn’t seen Illenium live until recentlyRead More
The beauty of Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO is the pinnacle of Mother Nature’s impressive talents. Arguably the most beautiful and acoustically perfect venue in the country, if not the world, Red Rocks is a place that artists from all walks of life would kill to play at. Each summer, Global Dance Festival (GDF) brings producers and dance music enthusiasts together for an event that juxtaposes natural beauty with blaring synths, whompy bass, crazy costumes and face-melting light shows. Another year of Global Dance Festival is in the booksRead More

This week we were #blessed by ABC and given two episodes of The Bachelorette to make up for the fact that the show won’t be returning until June 20th. NBA Finals > shitty reality tv; I get it (Go Dubs!). As expected, both episodes ended with the daunting “To Be Continued…” black screen after enough Chad drama to keep the show alive for years to come. I was busy setting up my bullet journal during the first episode and busy drinking a bottle of wine during the second episode, soRead More
I was faced with a dilemma last night: Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals or the second episode of The Bachelorette. I obviously chose to watch my future husband Klay Thompson play an incredible game of basketball and saved JoJo and her boys for another time. Now that I’m caught up and the Warriors are going to the championship, I can share my insight on the second episode which was almost entirely comprised of Chad being honest and talking about protein. Let’s Heat Things Up JoJo’s first group date ofRead More
I’d never been to an all trap show before, so I was a bit apprehensive when I decided to attend the Denver leg of Brillz’s Twonkdination tour. I love trap, sure, but a whole night of it? I was worried I couldn’t handle hours of bass and whomp and rap. Still, I’d never seen Brillz live and had only caught a tiny bit of Party Favor at EDC last summer, so I decided to go to the show with an open mind. In the end, I was blown away. IRead More
Decadence 2015
A hush fell right around 9:05 p.m. on night one of Decadence 2015 at the Spaceport stage. The anticipation in the air was palpable as eager ravers looked from the people in their groups to the stage, waiting. With the initial sound from the first song JackÜ played, came a roar that echoed through the massive hall on the top floor of the Colorado Convention Center. From that moment on, the set was a party. Heavyweight producers Skrillex and Diplo, who came together to form their massive side project JackÜ,Read More
