Hellgrammites at Larimer Lounge

August 24th, 2019

Larimer Lounge is the place to be next Thursday night. They’re kicking the weekend off a day early with a show worth canceling your previous plans for. Anniversary dinner on your calendar? Bring your better half to the show. Aunt Karen’s birthday? There’s always next year. Job interview in the morning? Reschedule, they like it when you play hard to get. Whatever the case, I’ll see you there at 8. Headlining are Denver’s own Hellgrammites. The family-based band has spent the last 15 years perfecting a sound that dodges genres, blending elements of punk, hardcore, indie,... Read More

James Andre’

August 10th, 2019

From growing up in small town, South Carolina, all the way to the big city lights of Mile High, artist James Andre’ indulged in his original style in oil and acrylic paintings. Mr. Andre’ often explores his lucid state of dreaming to conceptualize or ‘see’ his artwork before he even touches the canvas. Lucid dreaming is the act of being aware of your dream state, and in turn, creating a world with limitless opportunities. This is where James Andre’ goes to paint. It is this method of conceptualization that sets him apart from other artists. Mr. Andre’s unique... Read More

Lost Lake Weekend Lineup

August 10th, 2019

Lost Lake Lounge is one of Denver’s most beloved local bars. For nearly a decade it’s been a prime spot to see up and coming bands from all styles and genres. The lake house decorum works surprisingly well for the Colfax dive. Its small stage and limited floor space create an intimate setting, and every show is a close encounter. Friday, August 16th, Lost Lake welcomes Tommy Freed and the Sound. Their music is smooth, melodic, and soulful. Their debut album, Come on Shining, has roots in the blues, but branches out to include some indie and pop influences. Singer/songwriter Tommy Freed... Read More

The Yellow Rake’s 15th Anniversary Party

August 3rd, 2019

Next weekend, Hi-Dive is hosting The Yellow Rake’s 15th Anniversary Party. Good news—you’re invited! The celebration starts at 8:00 and includes performances from four local bands that you will absolutely want to tell everyone at the office about on Monday. SPELLS is a five-member punk band hailing from “The Queen City of the Plains.” Let’s just take a second to appreciate the fact that Denver got dibs on that one before Omaha. SPELLS released their debut EP, Take Time/Slice Away, in 2013. That was followed by an assortment of EPs, LPs, multiple “cassingles,” and a... Read More

Street Artist Abram Aleo

July 27th, 2019

I feel like it goes without saying that Denver has one of the most rapidly expanding art scenes in the country. We live in an artistic oasis, smack dab in between Chicago and Santa Fe, with entire districts dedicated to galleries. I recently had the pleasure of talking to one of Denver’s many prolific artists, Abram Aleo, about his work and some of the trends blossoming out of alleyways and gallery windows all over the city. Aleo is a self-taught visual artist, with a broad skill set and seemingly infinite creativity. He specializes in acrylic paintings and large-scale murals. These two disciplines... Read More
