If you want to know anything about Denver music, you gotta start with Tom Murphy. Tom is THE chronicler of Denver music for the past 20-odd years. His writing and photos have captured the Denver music’s many manifestations since he started covering the scene, and his obsessive nature means that he has made an impressively thorough historical record.
Just yesterday Tom posted “Ten Great, Vanished Denver Music Venues – 2016 Edition“, an homage to the great music venues and bands of Old Denver.
Dive in to Tom’s work at Westword with the High Plains Underground series of articles, catch up on the bands he mentions on the show (we’ll try to put a list together this week), and head out there and see local music. There’s so much going on in our beloved Queen City, you’d be a fool to miss out.
