Project aims to connect DU, community

School announced its Denver Advantage Campus Framework Plan BY KAILYN LAMB KLAMB@COLORADOCOMMUITYMEDIA.COM

The University of Denver has announced a large-scale development plan that will change the landscape of the campus with the addition of more retail and dining outlets. The school unveiled the Denver Advantage Campus Framework Plan on May 30. Chancellor Rebecca Chopp said it will better connect the 125-acre campus to its surrounding communities. The private school is in the University neighborhood of south

Denver, with the core of campus at 2199 S. University Blvd. “It was our deep commitment to try to open up our campus to be used more,” Chopp said. “When you think about campuses, they’re these phenomenally large facilities that are just not used enough.” In addition to improving and building new student facilities, DU is looking to add mixed-use retail and restaurant developments with housing, as well as a hotel. Chopp said the plan will be flexible in order to meet the needs of students and neighbors over the next decade. She added that she hopes the ambitious scale of the plans at DU will attract developers and shop owners who want to be a part of the expansion. “It really sets the table for what

we could be,” she said. The first phase will be three new buildings that are expected to be completed by the summer of 2020, and will cost a combined $143 million. The first two, a 500-bed dormitory for first-year students and a “Community Commons,” will be under construction in mid-June, and the third building, the Career Achievement and Global Alumni Center, will follow in January. The Community Commons will include classroom, study and dining spaces. The Career Achievement building will provide students with the opportunity to build relationships with DU’s alumni and to network with potential employers.

Colorado voters will choose would-be successors to Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is limited after two terms, in the June 26 primary election. It’s the first primary in which unaffiliated voters, the state’s largest voting bloc, can participate in one or the other of the major party primaries, and state ballots were mailed out June 4. Here’s a look at the top race. Colorado hasn’t elected a Republican governor since Bill Owens, who served from 1999-2007. Democrats Former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy has mounted a grassroots campaign touting credentials on education that lifted her to victories in the March caucuses and the state party assembly in April. Rivals Mike Johnston, a former state senator, and U.S. Rep. Jared Polis accused Kennedy of reneging on a clean-campaign pledge after a proKennedy PAC ran an ad smearing their records on K-12 schools and higher education. Kennedy garnered the support of the powerful Colorado Education Association teachers’ union and has trumpeted her role in writing a constitutional amendment that was designed to increase public schools funding yearly. Johnston, a former school principal and state senator, challenged Kennedy to disavow the ad in a recent debate. She declined to do so.

Denver parks could end policy of allowing beer With 3.2 set to disappear, ban could be on horizon unless officials change rules BY ANDREW KENNEY AKENNEY@DENVERITE.COM

Under a proposed new policy and a new state law, Denver Parks and Recreation may stop allowing people to drink beer at city parks, unless it’s part of a permitted event, according to spokesperson Cyndi Karvaski. However, that’s still up for discussion, Karvaski said. This has been the subject of a lot of confusion. Currently, the city allows people to freely drink weak “3.2 beer” in its parks. Now, the entire state of Colorado is set for a big beer change. A law that takes effect on Jan. 1 makes a ton of changes, most importantly allowing full-strength beer sales at grocery stores. The law also eliminates the legal category that allows 3.2 beer. As experts previously told Denverite, the change basically made it so that cities had to decide between full-strength beer or no beer at all for their parks.

Denver has been a bit vague about how it would respond to the new law, saying only that it would follow state and city rules. Then, Karvaski recently told Denverite that its newly proposed parks policy (combined with the new state law) would disallow freerange drinking. “Unless (Denver) City Council brings forward a proposal that they allow beer in parks, or somehow a rule is made for the city and county of Denver … we would be following `no beer, no alcohol whatsoever in parks,’” she said. “So, basically, we’ll just have to wait and see.” But she later clarified that the parks department is still mulling over its options, and that it could still decide to allow beer in the parks as the final details of the state law are settled. Otherwise, Denver’s proposed new parks alcohol policy is actually more liberal about alcohol in the parks. It would allow more types of alcohol at events in a broader range of city parks.

Why are you seeking this office? We are all proud of Colorado and what our state has become, but our progress is not reaching everyone in our state. I am running for governor to build on our progress, to make sure it reaches everyone and to keep Colorado the place we love.

Q&A with Donna Lynne

City or town of residence: Denver, previously Evergreen (Colorado since 2005) Profession: Lieutenant governor and chief operating officer of Colorado. Related elected-office or public-service experience: I have worked in both the public and private sector for the past 42 years. I worked for the City of New York in many senior-level positions, including senior vice president for the safety net hospital in New York and was also the director of operations in New York City. Why are you seeking this office? This state needs a governor who understands how to manage billiondollar budgets and who is willing to do the hard work to get things done. I have been to all 64 counties and visited with working families who are struggling to afford health care and housing. I have the experience Lynne to tackle these tough issues. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I have spent the last 42 years working in both the private and public sectors. I earned a doctorate in public health and spent 11 years as the executive vice president of Kaiser Permanente managing 16,000 employees and a $9 billion budget. I fought back against Washington last year to protect access to health care for 76,000 children from working families. I worked very hard to increase our state’s investment in education, transportation and broadband this past session. We need a strong governor to stand up for our public lands and who will protect our water and wild spaces. I will fight for Colorado. What would your top two priorities be if elected? My top two priorities will be reduc-

ing the cost of health care and affordable housing. I support universal health care but feel we must address the outsized profits the health care and pharmaceutical industries are making on the backs of working families. We must reduce those profits if we want to significantly reduce health-care costs and expand access. The lack of affordable housing is impacting families across Colorado. I will treat that lack of access like the crisis it is. I will immediately create a Cabinet-level position to begin working with cities and counties across the state to address this issue. The governor can and should be a leader to ensure everyone has access to affordable housing. What else should the voters know about you? My parents both served in the Navy during World War II — so I have appreciation for our veterans and their value to our communities. I paid my own way through college, and I raised three kids as a single mom. I know what families are going through because I have lived it. Throughout my career, I have been a consensus-builder and problem-solver. That’s what I will do as your governor.

Q&A with Jared Polis

City or town of residence: Boulder native; lived there most of my life. Profession: Entrepreneur, florist and public servant. Founder of ProFlowers.com, TechStars, Patriot Boot Camp, American Information Systems, Bluemountain.com. Related elected-office or public-service experience: U.S. congressman, former chair of the Colorado State Board of Education, founder of the New America School and the Academy of Urban Learning. Why are you seeking this office? With the federal government moving in the wrong direction, it’s up to the states to lead. Right here in Colorado, we can move forward with a bold vision to build a great public education system, unleash our state’s renewable energy potential and build an economy that works for everyone. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I’ve successfully worked across the aisle to solve problems for Colorado and accomplish progressive goals during my time in Congress. That’s the type of leadership Coloradans can expect from me as their governor. I led the way in rewriting No Child Left Behind to better serve our schools and our children and got results in building affordable workforce housing for my constituents. And I was Polis proud to work alongside President Barack Obama toward passage of the Affordable Care Act, which expanded health care for hundreds of thousands of Coloradans. What would your top two priorities be if elected? I’m running on a bold vision of bringing free full-day universal preschool and kindergarten to every Colorado child, making Colorado 100 percent powered by renewable energy and providing universal, affordable health care to every Coloradan. What else should the voters know about you? I’m the dad of two amazing kids, I started schools for new immigrants and homeless youth, and I’m the only former florist currently serving in Congress!

Republican candidates for governor Q&A with Greg Lopez

City or town of residence: Elizabeth, for 21 years. Profession: Small-business owner, restaurant and consulting. Related elected-office or public-service experience: Mayor of Parker, 1992-96; President of board of directors for Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, 2004-05; Colorado director of U.S. Small Business Administration, 2008-14. Why are you seeking this office? As governor, I will protect, preserve and promote the various economies and the different ways of life that make Colorado the great state that it is. I truly understand that there are 64 counties in the state and that it’s about all of Lopez us — not just some of us. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I sat on the board of E-470 and the Denver Regional Council of Governments, so I know transportation, water, air quality, economic and regional issues. I am the former Colorado director of the U.S. Small Business Administration. I understand that small business is the heart and soul of every community. I served in numerous education committees and economic-development councils. I know how to address growth and the elements that impact the quality of life in any community. What would your top two priorities be if elected? Water and education. Colorado

is a state where “life” is written in water. The future of our state lies in the balance as we look for ways to manage our water resources to accommodate the growth in state population, agricultural uses and recreational uses. We need to bring back vocational and technical training back into the high schools because not everyone can afford to or wants to go to college. High-school graduates need to be job-ready on day one, not college-ready. You can achieve the “American dream” without having to go to college. What else should the voters know about you? I come from humble beginnings: My parents were migrant workers and worked long hours in the fields. I am a disabled veteran (hearing loss), the only veteran running for governor. I know what a public servant truly is, and I will go as far as the Lord wants to take me.

With repeated mass shootings, he’s also holding citizen forums to discuss gun policy — including “red flag” laws intended to temporarily remove weapons from those deemed a threat to themselves or others. Polis is a five-term congressman, former state board of education member and self-made millionaire and philanthropist whose platform emphasizes publicly funded preschool and kindergarten, forgiveness of college debt, single-payer health care and renewable energy. He, too, attacked Kennedy for the ad and cites his own education credentials, which include founding New America Schools in Colorado and New Mexico for immigrant young adults. Lt. Gov.

Greg Lopez is a former Parker mayor who served as area director of the U.S. Small Business Administration. Lopez made the primary by challenging Republicans to embrace and enroll Hispanic voters. He shares the Trump administration’s antipathy toward so-called “sanctuary cities.” Unaffiliated voters State voters in 2016 approved changes that allow Colorado’s unaffiliated voters to cast ballots in either the Democratic or Republican primary without affiliating. The state’s 1.2 million active unaffiliated voters represent Colorado’s biggest voting bloc, and could previously vote in primaries only by registering with a party. The state’s two major parties have about 1 million active voters each. This year, most unaffiliated voters will receive two primary ballots — one for Democrats, one for Republicans. They can choose one; returning both will cancel their vote. The impact is uncertain, and Colorado’s primaries in 2014, the last non-presidential election year, didn’t feature gubernatorial contests. Primary turnout that year was nearly 22 percent of active voters.

Denver’s Lauren Sullivan joined about 160 business, government, academic and community leaders in a week-long academic seminar. The U.S. Army War College’s 64th National Security Seminar was June 4-7 in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Sullivan and other Army War College students represented fellow citizens in discussions with the next generation of senior leaders of the U.S. Armed Forces. For the senior military leaderstudents, the exchanges enable a deeper understanding of perspectives from across the American society they serve. The National Security Seminar was the capstone event of the Army War College’s 10-month curriculum, just before the Class of 2018 graduation ceremony to confer the USAWC diploma and master’s degree in Strategic Studies. National Security Seminar days are structured around daily presentations about an issue of national security significance, followed by candid discussion in a seminar with 16 students representing the U.S. military students, representatives of US Government agencies, and international officers in the student body.

Outside of the three buildings, the school has not started the design process on new structures. DU is working with Ayers Saint Gross, a Baltimorebased architecture firm. The school board would need to vote on individual building projects within the plan before construction starts. Chopp said construction at DU will happen in clusters around the school instead of spreading the work throughout the large campus. This way, students can navigate around building projects. The plan has been divided into phases, and Chopp said they are hoping a bulk of the projects will be finished in eight to 10 years. The school will also look at adding affordable housing projects, and potentially even senior housing in the area. Construction on the buildings and open spaces in the plan will happen as funds become available. Cost estimates for completing the entire plan are still being estimated, the school said. The upcoming residence hall at the school will be paid for by student room and board charges. The Commons and Career Achievement Center are being paid for by donations to the school as well as development partners. The school is hoping to use similar development partnerships to fund future construction. Once the buildings open, all students will pay a new fee of $6.50 per credit hour to support the commons building. Adam Gross, a principal with Ayers Saint Gross, said the mixed-use developments will help add additional revenue streams to DU through lease terms. During the presentation Gross said some buildings will be renovated,

such as Sturm Hall, which serves as an academic building. Others, like 50-year-old student dormitory Johnson-McFarlane Hall, also known as J-Mac, would be demolished. Gross said J-Mac in particular would have cost more to renovate than to build a new structure. The building will be replaced with a new building for undergraduate housing. “You’re kind of throwing good money after bad by continuing to invest in it,” he said. Campus buildings are currently separated into different sections across the 125 acres. Gross said the new construction plans would help to better connect those parcels. The school is also planning on improving mobility around campus, including new pedestrian and bicycle pathways. A pilot program for a new shuttle system will launch in July. Part of improving pedestrian access is making the walk around campus safer for students. The school estimated that more than 12,000 people cross Evans Avenue every day. DU will be adding special crosswalks that provide medians in the road for pedestrians to safely wait. “We are trying harder and harder to find ways to make it more natural to move across campus, and that the cars understand that they’re in a pedestrian zone,” said Mark Rogers, the university architect.

legal marijuana. Marijuana possession by adults is legal but using it in public, including streets, parks and most hotels or rental properties, could lead to a citation. Other states have repeatedly delayed or avoided a statewide system for public use, including Alaska, where regulators are expected to resume discussions this month on letting people consume inside retail stores. A voter-backed initiative forced Denver regulators into allowing so-called “social consumption facilities” where customers bring their own marijuana. But state and local regulators’ tight controls on business models and permitted locations have limited interest. City officials have issued only one permit and received only two applications since August. Officials in the Las Vegas area have delayed action on a similar type of license, waiting to see how Denver’s system would work. In California, San Francisco is the only city to permit lounges where people can smoke and use other marijuana products, while other cities are considering the idea. Advocates blasted Hickenlooper’s veto, arguing that it will allow unregulated indoor clubs to continue operating without legal authority. “In its wisdom, the Colorado Legislature sought to close a significant gap in regulation,” said Chris Woods, the owner of Terrapin Care Station, a company selling both medical and recreational marijuana in multiple Front Range locations. “It’s unfortunate that the governor chose not to offer another regulatory tool to state and local regulators. This fight is not over.”

Colorado’s governor has vetoed a bill to allow marijuana retailers to set up “tasting rooms,” dashing hopes that the state would be the first to adopt a system letting consumers use marijuana in public spaces. Gov. John Hickenlooper has objected to similar bills in the past, arguing it could prompt a federal crackdown. He stayed quiet on the issue during the legislative session this year but wasn’t satisfied with the scaled-back proposal. In a letter explaining the veto, Hickelooper wrote that the bill could have resulted in more impaired drivers on Colorado’s roads and other public health risks. “We may agree with the proponents’ goals to protect the public and children; however, we strongly disagree that this bill is the correct path to achieve those goals,” he wrote. This year’s proposal dramatically scaled back some advocates’ ambitions for stand-alone businesses reminiscent of a neighborhood bar or an upscale club where marijuana products would replace alcohol. The bill would not have allowed smoking of marijuana in the establishments — vaping and edible products would have been permitted instead — and it also would have let local municipalities decide whether to allow the so-called “tasting rooms.” But some lawmakers publicly worried that step could draw the attention of federal authorities, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Supporters hoped the narrow bill could resolve a stubborn conflict in Colorado and other states with

As a private school, DU does not receive aid from the government, and instead gets funding from tuition and private donations. For the 2018-19 school year, the DU tuition rate is $49,392 for a traditional undergraduate student going full-time.

LGBTQ rights supporters rally after Supreme Court decision Speakers assert right to equal access to public accommodation BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Members of the LGBTQ community and their allies — including Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper — took to the steps of the state Capitol in Denver on June 4 in a show of unity hours after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of a baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in Lakewood in 2012. The baker, Jack Phillips, cited religious objections to baking a cake for a gay wedding. The couple, Charlie Craig and David Mullins, filed suit against Phillips’ Masterpiece Cakeshop, alleging their civil rights had been violated because businesses must provide equal accommodations. “Over 50 years ago, we as a country decided that if you open a business to the public, you must be open to all,” Daniel Pamos, the executive director of LGBTQ advocacy organization One Colorado, told the crowd of about 50 people. “The freedom of religion must be defended as one of our most fundamental values as Americans, but that freedom cannot be used to harm others or discriminate against others.” The court’s ruling did not give

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said that the Supreme Court’s ruling does not deny anyone equal access to public accommodation in the state. DAVID GILBERT carte blanche to businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ customers, said Denise Maes, the public policy director of the Colorado chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, which defended the couple. “This is not about cake,” Maes said. “It’s about the right to access basic needs, necessities and rights, and to be free from the humiliation and shame Charlie and David had to endure that day in 2012.”

Craig, standing beside his husband, said the ruling means their fight against discrimination will continue. “We have always believed that in America you should not be turned away from a business open to the public just because of who you are,” Craig said. “Our case is not unique. Every day across the country, LGBTQ people face discrimination in every facet of life … We brought this case because nobody should have to face the shame,

embarrassment and humiliation of being told ‘we don’t serve your kind here.’” Hickenlooper recalled Martin Luther King Jr. saying that the universe bends toward justice. “To all those who may feel this was a ruling against you, who might feel like strangers in your own state, who have faced bias, bigotry and hatred, hang in there,” Hickenlooper said. “Tomorrow will be better. It always is. Barriers and walls that prevent people from experiencing the full benefits of humanity are going to fall away.” U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette — who represents Colorado’s 1st Congressional District, which includes Denver and Englewood, among other areas — said she is co-sponsoring legislation that would unequivocally enshrine gender and sexual identity in the protections of the Civil Rights Act. The ruling showed that the battle for LGBTQ rights isn’t over, said Brianna Titone, who is running for the state House District 27 seat, which largely covers Arvada. “As a trans person, my rights and those of the LGBTQ community are important to protect,” Titone said after the rally. “The Supreme Court’s decision, while not what I was expecting, was also not as bad as it could have been. It’s still important to come out and support the community so everyone knows we won’t just sit there and watch things happen around us. We’ll stand up and take action.”

Social Impact Bond program to help homeless Renaissance Downtown Lofts to house 100 people in Denver STAFF REPORT

The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless celebrated the grand opening of Renaissance Downtown Lofts, a space on 0.49 acres in downtown Denver that will house 100 people experiencing chronic homelessness. The lofts are part of the Denver Social Impact Bond program, a payfor-success model aimed to shift $7 million of taxpayer funding from high utilization of the jail and emergency services to providing housing and resources to people experiencing homelessness.

Mayor Michael Hancock joined coalition President John Parvensky in thanking the many individuals and organizations who made the project come to life. “Denver’s Social Impact Bond program pairs vital healthcare and other wraparound services with a permanent home to provide the city’s most vulnerable population with the support they need to improve their lives and well-being,” Hancock said in a news release. “I want to thank all of the partners involved, from Social Impact Bond funders to the city and state agencies that have provided financial assistance to our incredible service providers for being a part of this ambitious and innovative effort that is measurably improving the lives of Denver’s people.” Parvensky presented the city with

a plaque to show gratitude for strong collaboration on the vision of this project. He also celebrated the success of the first year of the Social Impact Bond, which began housing people experiencing homeless a year ago. “The most amazing thing has been the level of engagement with our clients,” Parvensky said in the release. “The myth out there is that there are many people living on the streets by choice. The initial results of the Social Impact Bond busts this myth: of the

first 250 homeless individuals randomly referred to the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and Mental Health Center of Denver through the SIB, only one refused housing and support. This, for a population that was not actively seeking housing, demonstrates that when respectfully engaged and offered a choice of housing and service options, more than 99 percent said yes.” SEE HOMELESS, P11

Congressman Coffman is showing great leadership with his effort to force a vote in the U.S. House to act on legislation to protect these young people. I would like to commend Rep. Coffman, Rep.

Being a father is opportunity to show unconditional love

O

ne of the greatest tributes to a father can be found in the Dan Fogelberg song “Leader of the Band.” The last part of the song has always meant something special to me … “I thank you for the music and your stories of the road WINNING I thank you for the freedom when it came my time WORDS to go I thank you for the kindness and the times when you got tough And papa, I don’t think I said I love you near enough The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old But his blood runs Michael Norton through my instrument and his song is in my soul My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man I’m just a living legacy to the leader of the band I am a living legacy to the leader of the band” This certainly speaks to the love and admiration of his father and was sung in such a way that it usually brings a tear to my eye every time I hear it. And as we approach Father’s Day, I often find myself thinking about this song and hope that my own children would think of me in a similar light, because as I have always tried to live up to my own expectations of being a father while still being their dad. There are so many other songs that pop into my head especially around Father’s Day, like “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle, or “Walk Like a Man” by Bruce Springsteen. And whether they are listened to around Father’s Day or at any other time of the year, they remind me of just how much I loved my grandfather and how much I love my children, each one, all of them, in their very own way. Our children are a gift, a blessing, and a joy. They also come with challenges, drama, and parenting opportunities throughout their lives. They truly bring us joy with their silliness and they can bring us incredible pain with mistakes and choices they make.

Maurice Cushionberry, who was housed through the Social Impact Bond a year ago, shared his story. He has been stably housed for over a year, saying he feels the sunlight shining on him, but now it’s through blinds instead of tree branches. He thanked the coalition for its work to help him through this challenging part of his life, though he is building up his confidence, rekindling relationships with family, working at a job he enjoys, and even taking vacation. “Hope,” he said in the release, “means a lot. To me, `hope’ means `housing, opportunity, and excellence.’” The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless says its is to work collaboratively toward the prevention of homelessness and the creation of lasting solutions for people experiencing and at-risk of homelessness homeless throughout Colorado. Learn more at www.coloradocoalition.org.

And whether it is joyful silliness or drama and sadness, the one thing I do know about being a father is the feeling of unconditional love. If we are lucky enough to receive unconditional love from them, that is wonderful and amazing. But the unconditional love I am referring to and that is such an awesome feeling is the unconditional love for them as their father. Regardless of the mistakes and poor choices they may have made, and despite the anger we may have felt or angst that they put us through, as a father there is just no greater feeling than loving your children and loving them unconditionally.

Father’s Day is a special day to be honored and remembered as a father and as a dad, but it is also a day to honor and remember the people who call us father, dad, pop, or papa. As always, I would love to hear your story at gotonorton@ gmail.com, and when we can experience that feeling of unconditional love for our children, it really will be a better than good week.

As I look back on my own poor choices, mistakes and errors in judgment over my entire life, I have even greater love and appreciation for my children and for their drama and mistakes, as most times they were nothing in comparison to my own. I’ll bet you can appreciate that too. There are many among us who have lost a child, and I cannot even imagine what that must feel like. Some were lost to accidents, some to illnesses, and some to other circumstances such as drugs or alcohol or depression. My heart breaks for those of you who have had to experience that as it truly must be so difficult on days such as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

(Of course, they don’t sell small, medium and large; instead, there are embarrassing code names.) The girl said, “We’re out of coffee.” I looked around: the place was packed with people drinking something, and employees were handing cups of something though the drive-up window. “What’s all of that?” “Flavored coffees. Foamed coffees. Sprinkled, dusted, and twigged coffees. We’re brewing a pot of black coffee for freaks like you. Ready in a minute.” (Minor exaggeration, to make a point.)

Bringing the concert experience home

House shows are simple, low-impact concerts that are hosted in spaces - either indoor or outdoor - where musicians can perform. That can even be a kitchen area. PHOTOS COURTESY OF LYMLIGHT

House shows are growing in popularity for fans, musicians BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

S

ometimes, the best experience a person can have with music is when it’s performed live. But going to concerts can be a pricey endeavor, plus there’s the cost of getting a drink or two, dealing with the crowd, and fighting for a good spot. Those in search of a way to experience a different kind of live music should consider a growing trend — one closer to home. “Even at small clubs, there’s still a kind of invisible force field between you and the audience, because you’re on stage and they’re not,” said Kyle Hauser, a Berklee School of Music graduate and former touring musician. “But playing a house show allows you to make a genuine connection with people in a way you can’t otherwise.” House shows are exactly what they sound like — people open up their homes to anywhere from 10 to 30 people for a special performance in their living room, backyard, or any other large space they have. “What a great way to see live music house shows are,” said Daniel Prewitt, a Morrison resident who has hosted several such events in recent years. “There’s no more intimate way to experience music than with just a few other people in an environment

House shows are an increasingly popular way for musicians to spare themselves many of the costs that come with playing venues and connect with audiences. like a home.” As these concerts are so small, there’s not a lot in the way of promotional materials — it mostly comes down to word of mouth and friends of friends. Hauser said there’s a kind of informal list of people who host house shows shared between musicians, but Andrea McKee, founder of Lymlight, aims to make the process easier for both musicians and hosts alike.

lthough it has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, Denver’s PrideFest can trace its roots all the way back to 1975. And this year’s event is going to be the biggest yet. “We’re going to have more than 200 exhibitors and three stages-worth of entertainment,” said Rex Fuller, vice president of communications and corporate giving with The GLBT Community Center COMING of Colorado, which has been ATTRACTIONS organizing the festival for 28 years. “At this free festival we have a lot going on, including areas for families, youth and seniors.” Denver PrideFest, the region’s largest celebration of LGBT Pride, returns to Civic Center, 101 W. 14th Ave., on Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17. Events begin on the 16th at 9:30 a.m. Clarke Reader and continue until 11 p.m., and on the 17th, they start at 9 a.m. and finish and 6 p.m. The event expects more than 350,000 people stopping by to participate in a range of activities, including the Coors Light PrideFest Parade, which is the centerpiece of PrideFest. This year’s parade will include more than 200 entries that celebrate the diversity of the LGBTQ community and its supporters. “We wanted to focus on cross-cultural programming, and we’re bringing all kinds of entertainment to our stages,” Fuller said. “It allows us to showcase that the LGBTQ community includes people from all walks of life.” Other activities going on during the festival include dance music legend Crystal Waters performing, Kameron Michaels from “Ru Paul’s Drag Race,” DJ Barry Harris, an installation by Lonnie Hanzon, the Pride 5K and Denver Pride Rally for Equality. “This year’s theme is ‘Say It Loud, Say It Proud,’” Fuller added. “We want everyone in our community to remain visible and speaking about their rights.” Proceeds from Denver PrideFest support the GLBT Community Center of Colorado.

Clarke’s Concert of the Week — Quiet Slang at Globe Hall James Alex is a rare kind of person in 2018 — a true believer in the cathartic, healing and transcendent power of rock. His band, Beach Slang, brings all the raucous fun and shout-along worthy choruses that made early rock and punk so much fun in the first place. But now James is turning the volume down a little with Quiet Slang, the acoustic version of Beach Slang. It’s a testament to the depth of James’ tunes that they take on a whole other level when played acoustically. Quiet Slang will be making a stop at the Globe Hall, 4483 Logan St. in Denver, at 8 p.m. on Monday, June 18. For tickets, visit www.globehall.com. Butterfly Pavilion marks Pollinator Week It seems like every day or month of the year is in honor of something — everything from National Cheese Day to National Old Maids Day (both real).

This pollinator celebration is included with general admission and features animal and plant encounters, a milkweed seed giveaway, guided garden explorations, crafts, games, beeswax candle-making and a new sommelier-led honey tasking and food paring for those 21 and older.

In addition, there will be free honey tastings of Local Hive by Rice’s Honey from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in all 19 Colorado Sam’s Club locations, with the Thornton location as the main hub of activity.

Manning visits as Broncos install simplified offense Offensive coordinator wants players trained to react, not think about wording BY PAT GRAHAM ASSOCIATED PRESS

A day after teeing it up with Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning stopped by the Denver Broncos’ on-field workout to check things out. By the end, the five-time NFL MVP quarterback probably had the new playbook deciphered. The schemes have been simplified by offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave and his staff. He wants QB Case Keenum and the rest of the players to be reacting, not thinking about terminology. “We don’t want long-worded plays in the huddle,” Musgrave said May 31 as the coordinators met with the media. “We’d love for guys to know it like the back of their hand and then they can cut it loose and play.” So far, Musgrave likes what he sees out of Keenum, who’s taking all the reps with the No. 1 unit, unlike a year ago when Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian split time. “Case is getting more concentrated work and it’s paying dividends,” Mus-

“The wording is Spanish to these guys. It’s new every single time you change coordinators.”

Especially with the new kickoff rules aimed at making the high-speed play a bit safer and perhaps more exciting. He talked in terms of geometry, hypotenuse and how the Broncos plan to heavily use a 12th defender — the sideline. Right off the bat, McMahon is trying to establish a new culture especially after all the mistakes on special teams a season ago. The principles, he said, are not easy to pick up. “The wording is Spanish to these guys,” McMahon said. “It’s new every single time you change coordinators.” Defensive coordinator Joe Woods learned one valuable lesson coming off his first season running the show: It’s a different kind of pressure. “For me, I had to learn to game-plan different,” Woods said. “I feel better about it. I feel more at ease. I just feel more comfortable.” He’s impressed with No. 5 pick Bradley Chubb, a player Woods is still a little surprised fell to the Broncos. He has some special packages in mind for his rushers that include Von Miller, Shane Ray, Shaquil Barrett and Chubb. “Dreams do come true,” Woods said of the pass rush possibilities. Woods tried to recruit one more — Ware. “I saw him around the corner and asked if he could play,” Woods cracked.

SHEDDING LIGHT ON LYMLIGHT

FROM PAGE 12

“Lymlight is an online platform that connects performers with people who want to host shows,” McKee explained. “As a singer-songwriter myself, I had a hard time finding gigs where I could play my own material and where I wouldn’t feel like background music. But when I heard about house shows, I loved the energy they provide.” By using Lymlight — which is free for everyone — musicians can connect with people interested in hosting a show at their place, and vice versa. Most of the musicians who are interested in playing house shows are moving into markets or

Lymlight, an online platform connecting musicians with people who want to host house concerts, has three main principles: 1) Ethical Shows — performer earns a living wage. 2) Original Work — there is plenty of undiscovered and unheard amazing work and therefore it should be heard.

3) Engaged Audience — the performer is not background entertainment. To be a host, all one needs are: • Seats for at least 10 people • Friends who will pay to see live music • A serious love of live music For more information and to sign up, visit www.lymlight.com.

areas they’ve never been before, McKee said. “By making the house show process easier and more accessible we’re looking to change the landscape of what the live experience can be,” she added. “They’re a great option for indie artists.” The site also has a range of resources available for those new to hosting.

Arvada resident Melissa Rozeski had never attended a house show before she met McKee but fell in love with them after a performance she hosted for her birthday. “We had people bring food and drinks. It was almost like a potluck,” she said. “The best part was the musician would chat with the guests before and after. It gave all of us a chance to support musicians

we enjoy.” Ensuring house shows arranged through Lymlight are ethical was of vital importance to McKee — which means making it possible for musicians to make a living. Guests to events made on the platform must buy a ticket to the show through the platform for tax purposes. This ensures both musician and host are aware of how many seats are getting filled based on the number of tickets sold for each event. When tickets to a show are sold, upon completion of the show, the ticket sales will automatically be deposited into the musician’s bank account. “I think house shows are the logical next step in the music economic system,” Hauser said. “You just know you’re going to have a good experience at these shows.”
