Skateboarding Culture in Fort Collins

“Ever the observant one, I can’t help but notice the trend of skateboarders I come across in the 970.”   Skateboarding in Fort Collins is complete freedom. It means getting to do things the way you want to do things. It means getting to go where you want to go, and once one realizes this, picking up a skateboard can become very liberating. If you thought longboards and bikes were taking over the city, think again.   “Skateboarding is alive and well, and when people see you skating and having a good time it makes...

Interview: Adam Carson of AFI

AFI drummer and founding member Adam Carson talks to KCSU’s Danny Steiner about the Blood Album, evolving as a band, and AFI’s aesthetic. In preparation for writing this article I went back and listened to the album that got me into AFI: Sing the Sorrow. I was immediately taken aback to my eight year old self getting into punk. The full orchestration, the sweeping choruses, and the punchy songs through out the album reminded me of what got me into this genre in the first place: the intensity. All things considered, this is not the...

CD Review – ‘Devil Is Fine’ by Zeal & Ardor

I absolutely love it when an album turns out to be such a wonderfully unexpected listening experience. The nine track album, ‘Devil is Fine,’ by Zeal & Ardor is one of those special gems that hits you out of left field and stays in your head for a long time after. Released in the beginning of March, this album takes two completely different genres and expertly mixes them together to create a remarkably special sound. Combining the style of African American spirituals with metal seems like it might not work on paper, but let me...

The Distinct Culture of Fort Collin’s DIY Band Scene

  “WE ARE THE DIY CONTEMPORARIES“ Calling all do-it-yourselfers; our generation, our cultural narrative.    From our backyards and our unfinished basements, the voices of a generation play in the margins here in Fort Collins, Colorado.   Here, we are the DIY contemporaries. DIY culture means that bands who might normally pay the money to have producers and publicists, instead create, direct, and produce on their own dime. But that doesn’t mean it’s free, in fact, it’s a labor of love for most, and there’s little...
