Flossy Mcgrew’s is a Denver landmark that boasts one of the best selections of costumes and vintage clothing in the state. I’ve been bailed out plenty of times for Halloween and other costume themed parties, i.e. “Pimps and Hoes,” by good old Flossy’s. Florence Welch spent the good part of last week in Denver as part of her band’s two night stint in town (head over here to check out Reverb’s coverage) at Red Rocks and Wells Fargo Theatre, respectively. It appears that her wardrobe was in need of an upgrade and Florence hit the South Broadway retailer. Photo via Florence + the Machine’s Facebook page.
UMS recap video
The UMS conquered South Broadway last month. Thanks to Scott Kaplan, now we have video proof. In many cases, some of us may have “lost track of time” while enjoying the festivities. Head over here in case you missed any of the UMS coverage over the last couple of weeks.
The Epilogues “Fallout” on MTV
The Epilogues’ freight train keeps on rollin’ — chugging from the queso-rich territory of Illegal Pete’s to the MTV studios in New York. We’re happy to see that the rest of the country is being exposed to one of the hardest working acts from our fair city. Be on the lookout for their forthcoming album, “Cinematics,” due Oct. 6.
Gauntlet Hair moves to Chi-town
Gauntlet Hair is relocating to the land where Abe Froman is known as the “Sausage King.” Yes, it’s with a heavy heart that we inform y’all that Gauntlet Hair will be leaving Denver for Chicago. The band’s farewell show is Aug. 25 at the Larimer Lounge. Now to the good news. The GH dudes contributed to Adult Swim’s singles campaign with their fuzzy number, “Righteous Black.” You can download the single here.
Missy Franklin might “Call Me Maybe,” yeah right
Regis Jesuit student and gold medal winner Missy Franklin is making the world swoon with her larger than life smile and charm. The U.S. Olympic Swim Team put together a travel video featuring, what else, “Call Me Maybe.” Photo by John Leyba, The Denver Post.
