In a backroom in Denver, Colorado, a small crowd was gathering. Word spread of the concert through event pages and messaging networks. Fans of hardcore and punk filed in, eager to hear the night’s music. Underground music never died. It just went, well, underground.
It was a most excellent night. Several thousand dollars were raised for local causes, and all of the attendees had a blast. The Gathering Place, a Denver shelter for women, children, and transgender individuals, was the beneficiary for this night.

It is also worth noting that Twiztid brings along a live drummer, which gives them a unique touch among their peers. It is clear that Twiztid is a group with longevity, able to entertain crowds over twenty years after their debut. Make sure to see them if you get the chance!

Avatar’s headbanging seemed almost choreographed throughout their songs, and they pulled out every stop for their show. Their name was lit up in a huge light display, they were in full costume, and they brought along props and bubbles. Their set ended with “Smells like a Freak Show”.
The gargoyle lights watched on in glee as the audience took part in the musical ritual. The band gave all their energy, and the audience gave their own. It was a kind of ambiance only achievable at an older venue like this.
Fozzy is the brainchild of WWE wrestler Chris Jericho, and he brought every ounce of his bombastic WWE performance to the stage. The crowd was ready for this, cheering each member as they came out. Rich “The Duke” Ward brought his own brand of explosive energy to the show, moving around the stage enthusiastically. It didn’t slow them down one bit that bassist Pail Di Leo was not with them.
