Spotlight on Josh Barrett of The Wailers

The Wailers is a reggae band that is the stuff of legend — the remaining members of Bob Marley and the Wailers who persevered following Marley’s death in 1981. What began as one of the most legendary reggae bands in history continues today, thanks to the amazing talents of many current and past members. Recent addition Josh Barrett lends his vocals to fill some impossibly large shoes, and

Scene Stealers: Feb. 2018

  The Coronas at Larimer Lounge International success may have eluded one of Ireland’s most popular acts, but their new Irish-chart-topping album Trust The Wire (So Far So Good records, 2017) and accompanying tour across The Pond have them poised to pop in the States. The multi-platinum alt. rock quartet certainly has the chops — witness their 2010 Meteor award for best Irish

Duly Noted: The Lügenpresse

It should come as no surprise to anyone reading this publication just how viscerally I might respond to the constant, steady drum beat of our Commander-in-Chief’s incessant attacks on the Fourth Estate. And, if you’re a student of history in any manner — or simply someone with an axe to grind against fascism in general, it should probably get your ire up, too. Lügenpresse, the German

Sampler Plate: The Colorado Cuts

The Colorado Cuts Recognizing the Value, Investing in Your Health Photos by Victoria Edstedt The food scene in BOCO is flourishing: new restaurants are opening every other month, if not more often. People have so many choices of where to eat that it becomes harder to stand out. Choosing the place that serves you best is more difficult. As a result, chefs are going after

Formation of a Foodie: MEXcellence with Volcan Azul

Photos by Victoria Edstedt You would never guess that Francis Schneeweiss started Volcan Azul, an authentic Mexican food catering business. Fair skin, blue eyes and red hair are not associated with cheesy quesadillas, flavorful fajitas, or America's favorite food: tacos. But don't let looks fool you. She's cooking up the wondrous and breaking stereotypes of what Mexican cuisine has to

Whiskey Wars: Bourbon & Bacon Fest v the Denver Winter Whiskey Fest

Denver recently played host to not one but two whiskey events on the same day. Because we're equal opportunists, stubborn overachievers and downright diligent dandies here at Yellow Scene, we felt it prudent to experience both and provide you with an honest appraisal of each. #ResponsibleJournalism Consider it helpful advice for next year. Consider it whatever you want, yet also please

Notables: John Murphy’s Cycles

Have you met John Murphy? He’s the local retiree who spends his time cycling the world. Yes, you read that correctly. Retiree...cycling the world. I stopped in to his unusually ornate home for a French press (thanks, Rose) and conversation. Turns out, going from being a working man preferring the quietude of small community to retirement doesn’t have to mean resignation to the quietude of
