The Hollywood Dreams Tour Stops in Denver and The Buzz Was Outlasting

BY: Demarcus O’Dell

Denver was the fourth stop on the Hollywood Dreams Tour. The work ethic would prove stimulating as the fluidness never slowed. Like a well oiled machine built by Jazz Cartier and Post Malone, the bouncing throughout the room was a continuous occurrence alongside roars, chants, love and the pure obsession of the masters at work and the night to be. Catch a glimpse of the moments had, followed by the intimate connections made with fans and those truly inspired there after as we recap the evening’s heroes, who asked of us, received, owned and then nearly tore down the house!

Slideshow: The 14th Annual Official Labor Day All White Attire Party

The 14th Annual Official Labor Day All White Attire Party went off in a major way this weekend. Boasting of a new location (ViewHouse Centennial), the club quickly filled up with what turned out to be more than 2300 people. Rap star The Game was the host and he did his duties happily on stage, blunt in hand and smiles all around. B.o.B was also in the building after his performance at the KS1075 All-Star show at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater. Trev Rich made a special guest appearance and the masses were clamoring over each other for The White Party experience. Click through to see all of the photos, by Jeremy Pape for Collective Culture.

Riot Fest – Day One | Recap and Review

By: Demarcus O’Dell

Day one kicked off to annually concurrent weather. Ironically classic; clear blue skies albeit unguarded sun that left us no doubt of the certain absence of sanctuary of shade. Following entrance, a settling reminiscence  of a time and place, full of joy and simplicity wafted over us . Cued by the timeless; circus themed decor, large devil’s head figurines, and the array of accessories, clothing and food possibilities, to new comers, we winded up at a carnival. For those of us who have been waiting to return, we knew and were then assured; theres no place like Riot Fest.

Riot Fest Curated Playlist

By: Demarcus O’Dell

Looking forward to a full weekend of the music buffet that is Riot Fest, we couldn’t quite wait to catch the sustenance. We have created a playlist to temporarily fill the fix, while we wait to binge on and indulge ourselves on the soft rocky, serenade of Death Cab for Cutie, Deftones, and Wolf Parade. Kick up the energy with us as we jam out to Jane’s Addiction and Against Me!. Take a trip to the east with us as we transition into Nas, Danny Brown and the Flatbush ZOMBiES. As we warm up, it’s only appropriate to go back to the west with a prediction of heat from VInce Staples, Tyler the Creator, and Suicidal Tendencies.

Sweat the Technique; The featured acts in “A Movie”

By: Ru Johnson (The Executioner at Roux Black)

We’re always into artists doing new things in creative ways that elevate the Denver music scene. Artists tend to shy away from the idea of being called “local,” a sentiment that, to them, weakens their global appeal. We’ve gone on to use the term independent in lieu of “local,” if only to appease the inspiration behind the artists’ movement, however “local” gets a bit of an unnecessary bad reputation. Being “local,” means you represent a city that is thriving and on the rise, but also about creating strong projects in your city that show off its best points.

On September 8th, 2016, an idea that will change the game comes to life at The Bluebird Theater for ‘A Movie’ presented by Queen City Hip-hop and Young Amsterdam. I talk with organizer and performer Bvggz after the cut about the concept and creativity behind the show.
