If you are a woman – or appreciate women – get out of the house this weekend!

Hollywood Holt x Stanton Warriors


Fun dance track from Stanton Warriors with rhymes by my boy Hollywood Holt.
You may remember he came thru Denver last April, played back to back parties. I put local lady Ginger Perry and Chicago’s Holt together for a dance party so sick I was sore for days from dancing to all that house and juke! Then the next night he showed off how diverse his style is and crushed it with punk and metal at Shag Lounge. This kid’s got passion, hope you like it.

Ride Bikes And Listen To Metal Mixtape

Every Monday night for the past year and a half I’ve been teaching an indoor cycling class to metal music, I call it Metal Monday. The class is at the yoga and cycling studio Breathe Denver at 5:45pm and is an hour of strength & endurance building drills for cyclists of all levels (think lower intensity, longer efforts). You can read more about my class and my reasoning behind choosing metal in this interview on Team Beer’d.

See Breathe’s full cycling schedule, make sure you sign up for cycling classes in advance. I also teach a beginner’s class on Wednesday!

Enough about the class, I want to give you some music!!! Click on the image below to download the free mixtape.

Westword Event Coverage for DETHRIDE

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.
