Head Room Sessions

Head Room Sessions

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. In fact, it’s probably Denver’s best kept(musical) secret. There’s these things called Head Room Sessions. Once a month, musicians and music lovers duck into a small opening between two buildings off Santa Fe. They follow a narrow walkway illuminated by Christmas lights and upbeat spirits, to a brick building with a blue wall and a white door, the entrance to ReCreative. It’s a really awesome art gallery, and they’re gracious enough to provide space for these intimate live recordings. Head Room Sessions are really special events showcasing... Read More

Helikon

Helikon Gallery

Someone asked me recently what my favorite gallery was. I know, absurd. How could anybody pick one? It’s like trying to choose your favorite song, the best flavor of ice cream, or your preferred superpower. Every time one comes to mind, three more steps into the spotlight. It would have to be something imaginary. A skyscraper sized gallery with the first 30 floors full of emerging artists, 30 more of the greats, and then Meow Wolf straight up into the clouds, with a rotating stage that doubled as an elevator. On the bright side, even if Dr. Seuss doesn’t turn up reanimated and architecturally... Read More

Stain’d Literary and Arts Magazine

Denver’s literary scene is flourishing thanks to the passionate persistence of its communities.  This vibrant community enables a diverse number of voices and modes for expression.  One of them being Stain’d Literary and Arts Magazine, a venture that has grown considerably over the past three years with an active community of workshop participants, open mic readers and attendees; their magazines are now distributed and sold across the country!

Next weekend is the Underground Music Showcase. The streets of South Broadway will be flooded with people and bands. The Baker neighborhood will be bursting at the seams with house parties to accommodate the overflow. We covered this a few weeks back. I recently got the chance to interview one of the artists playing the showcase and I thought it might be a good warm up for next week’s mayhem. Jon Medina is a super talented and dedicated DJ based in our very own Denver. You can catch him regularly at local venues like Vinyl and Bar Standard. He was kind enough to sit down with me to talk about... Read More

Be On Key

Be on Key

If you’re into jam bands or are even vaguely familiar with that scene in Denver, you’ve probably heard of Jay Bianchi. If that doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve most likely been to Sancho’s Broken Arrow, or Owsleys. Maybe you remember Quixote’s(RIP). If none of this sounds familiar, you may have just gotten here, which is fine, and now you know about some cool spots to check out. Bianchi is a die-hard deadhead and his establishments tend to reflect the sentiment. They’re all incredibly welcoming places to relax, grab a drink, and enjoy good music. His latest project, Be On Key Psychedelic... Read More

How To Shrub Like a Denver Mixologist

July 6th, 2018
Shrub Cocktails

Shrub cocktails are all the rage in hipster cocktail bars and underground secret door speakeasies all around Denver.  A shrub is a concentrated syrup that combines fruit, sugar, and vinegar and results in a sweet, acidic mixer that can be enjoyed on its own or used in a variety of mixed drinks. Herbs and spices are also used to created interesting flavor combinations that tantalize the tongue.  Why not impress guests at your next dinner party with a homemade shrub that’s as easy and thrilling to prepare as it is to drink! I will never forget the complex flavors that I untangled with my tongue... Read More
