    Rainbow Kitten Surprise has jumped into the cannabis game, partnering with a Colorado extraction lab for a limited edition live resin vaporizer cartridge. The indie alt-rock group with one of music's most memorable names worked with Green Dot Labs to create the "THAT’S MY S#!T" cartridge, named after an RKS song. According to Green Dot CEO Alana Malone, the company was actually approached by RKS after bassist Charlie Holt tried a Green Dot vaporizer pen that was made through a similar partnership with Sound Tribe Sector 9. Already having collaborated with STS9 and The Disco Biscuits, Malone and Green Dot were happy to work with another band. But creating a custom resin cartridge takes time, Malone says, with extractors taking input from RKS members to choose which strains and terpenes go into the final product.Related Stories N.O.R.E.

    These days, people don’t use the phrase "home away from home." Those words have been packed away alongside memories of large concert crowds pressed together singing along to their favorite songs.

And though those days will someday return, the catering company's owners are sharing that comfort, along with stories of rock stars and big events, at their new shop, Frank’s Food & Bodega, in Edgewater. Frank’s, located at 5700 West 25th Avenue, is run by Irene Hessner-Taras and her son and daughter-in-law, Blake and Jen Elwell. For 25 years, Blue Note has served musical acts and their crews as the exclusive backstage caterer for Denver’s large music venues and festivals. But with those festivals and concerts on hold for the past seven months, the family is using its skill set...
    With the libraries shuttered, except for curbside pickup, Denver Public Library adult services librarian Heidi Young wanted to give people in the city a way to express their thoughts and emotions about COVID-19 and this brutal year. Inspired by Quaranzine, from the Arlington Public Library, Young decided to create a zine in which library staff and customers could reflect on these brutal times. "For myself as a teenager and a young person being involved in the underground music scene back in Seattle, zines were circulated a lot in that circle," Young says. "I would trade zines with my friends and drop them off at independent bookstores." Zines are DIY, homemade magazines often showcasing works by artists, writers, photographers, and other creatives. Young thought it would be the perfect way to give her coworkers an outlet.

    To call the building that houses Colorado Sound Recording nondescript is an understatement. If the name weren’t emblazoned on the front of the converted house nestled among apartments, an RTD station and light industrial buildings on the southern edge of Westminster, you’d probably walk right by the studio. But Colorado Sound Recording, owned by Kevin Clock, has hosted many of the state's biggest bands, like Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and the Lumineers; even artists such as Eminem and Gladys Knight & the Pips have recorded there over the past 43 years. “Once artists like these bigger artists that come through — once their managers know that this place exists, this place kind of becomes a go-to off-the-grid destination place for them to come back and record,” says office manager Jess Lambert. Lambert says people are drawn to Colorado Sound’s off-the-beaten-path location and its mix of state-of-the-art...
