I've been going to a lot of shows in Denver over the past few weeks. Before we moved to Colorado, I'd heard some good things about the music scene, but wasn't exactly sure what it was about all because I couldn't experience it firsthand - I guess I'm an empiricist.

Regardless, I'm very impressed with the extent and caliber of what I've witnessed so far, as well as the enthusiasm of those in attendance. Live music (performing and supporting it) is undoubtedly ingrained in the culture here. There are tons of clubs and a myriad of local, regional, and national bands in town on any given evening. It's all very invigorating - and I'm excited to become a part of it.
