Denver’s DIY scene has been going hard for years. We’ve got a DIY place called 7th Circle Music Collective that has shows from local kids just starting off to MDC playing there three years in a row, to a three-day underground folk punk festival called Compost Heap that’s now in its 4th year. It’s basically the 924 Gilman of Colorado.
Beyond that we have a number of house venues, a few other folks trying to get their DIY spaces off the ground, and an annual zine fest that also showcases local music. There’s something going on every night here.
I'm about to be passing thru Denver next weekend. Know of anything going on or spots to check out that you might wanna share?

Little rock was pretty solid up until the last year and a half or so. Last summer we got booted from the longest running show house that had been having shows off an on since the 90s. Last house show spot just bit the dust a couple weeks ago. Younger folks now dont have the fuckin heart that my original group of friends here had coming up. Place is dead.

I see some folks mentioning austin..whew
That place aint the place haha. I sure miss the shitpit though!

Some of my little rock pals moved to stl and it seems like a decent place with stuff going on. Seemed a little too pc for me but thats pretty much par for the course these days.

Hey I was looking for info like that on Denver. I'm about 4 hours drive from there where I live now, was wondering what's up there. Is there a place to head to to find info on what's going on?

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Last post, but, is it bad that I sometimes inhale rubbing alcohol fumes to relieve tension?

Cause every now and then I'll like, inhale a bit, and then I feel it hit me in my brain, and I just feel, perked up and less stressed.

lol it's a terrible idea, I know.
Georgia is now lockdown. Let's see if my dumbass neighbors will go out for their drugs.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)
