For those who missed out on all the fun, Thorin Klosowski is here to save the day! He wrote this wonderful event recap for DETHRIDE on Westword’s art + culture blog Show & Tell.

“The award ceremony, to which we were called up to the stage to collect our rewards, followed after three of the bands on the ticket played. Under normal conditions, this wouldn’t have been a problem, but as it turns out, I get a little clumsy when I’m on a stage in front of people, and I managed to drop and spread out all of our winnings. Maybe it was the fact that organizer Jen Nordhem kept calling us all nerds, or maybe I’d just had a couple too many drinks. It was classy either way. “

This is Thorin right before dropping all the “winnings” captured by Sarah Slater.

That was funny. But back to the serious stuff. We had a great turn out, 65 DETHRIDERS joined us at 3 Kings for a night of bikes, metal and art.

Congrats to the first place team, check out their sweet shirts! Art by Sam Turner, printed + donated by Indy Ink.

Thanks for coming, everyone! This may turn into an annual deal so stay tuned!

Check out the article I wrote on Denver’s Veteran Couriers in the latest issue. Thanks to Lenny Maiornai for the wonderful photographs!

Picture a wild Chicago house party; the floor’s about to buckle, everyone’s dripping sweat as the bass works it’s way through the crowd of punks, hip hop kids and hipsters. Enter Hollywood Holt, “My thing is – I’m very, very, big into punk rock, so when I perform, it’s like a punk-rock show, but it’s hip-hop music.” A triple threat rapper, DJ and break dancer, Holt is a true performer. He captivates his audience with rhymes about juking, peach lambic, and mopeds and will dj anything to keep the dance floor moving.

Hollywood Holt will be coming to Denver to DJ at Cervantes’ Other Side (formerly Quixote’s) at 2637 Welton on Wednesday, April 21, 2010. DJs Ginger Perry and Deftron will be getting the party started around 9pm. With visual explorations from Robert Fraser. Five at the door.

Chicago proud! If you like Kid Sister, The Cool Kids or Flosstradamus you don’t want to miss this!!!

You can hear Ginger Perry DJ Sunday brunch at Table 6 or at Bingo at Sputnik on Monday’s.
Deftron can be found at Tooey’s every Sunday night.

Imma Twitta Dat!
