Alright Buddies! Welcome to what was originally intended to be our Riot Fest Denver Interview show! Sadly things did not go as planned, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t a fantastic episode! Because it is!

This week we join Adam Fletcher of THE COPYRIGHTS in front of the Marquis Theater in Denver to talk about growing up in a small town, discovering punk rock, starting a band and the perks of growing up in a small town! We also talk a little bit about touring, and DEAR LANDLORD!

Then we randomly run into KRIS ROE from THE ATARIS backstage waiting for AGAINST ME! to play! WHAT?!?! Crazy small world. Kris remembered me from the previous interview we did in 2012! Kris was kind enough to talk to us about the many festivals he has played all over the world and how they compare. What bands he would like to see reunite and how he discovered THE REPLACEMENTS!

This interview was to be the first of MANY interviews about our weekend at May Farms for Riot Fest Denver! As things work out, I kept running into a ton of band members backstage, but always when they were watching their friends and favorite bands play. I’d ask them if we could grab a quick word with them, but as it was they were there to watch their friends and favorite bands play. They’d tell me, “SURE! We’ll do it after this set!” Then things wouldn’t work out. Hey, that’s life right?

While my Press pass did not grant me side stage access, I somehow found myself side stage watching Against Me, Alkaline Trio, THE REPLACEMENTS and FLAG! It was a hell of a weekend!

We’ll have a full write up on Riot Fest Denver posted over at New Noise Magazine later this week!
