Welp… that’s a wrap. We didn’t quite make it to 250 episodes, and we didn’t quite make it to five years, but that’s how life goes sometimes. Who would have guessed when we started the show that Kevin would be heading off to New York City and Taylor would be heading to Los Angeles? …I mean, I suppose you probably could have made an educated guess. Nevertheless!

We hope you have enjoyed the show whether you listened to one ep or every ep (god save your poor soul). Please know we telepathically heard every time you yelled at your listening device when we got something wrong. You guys yell a LOT!

To absolutely everyone involved in making this show – producers, guests, designers, photographers, bandmates and listeners – THANK YOU.

And now we present The End.

Love!

-Taylor & Kevin

These Things Matter Podcast - Denver DIY
  • These Things Matter Podcast - Tom Murphy
  • These Things Matter Podcast - DIY Music Denver

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.
