Loud Fast Fun
Wild Lives – Street walkin' cheetahs with hearts full of napalm.
"Seeing the Denver punk band Wild Lives perform is not an experience anyone’s likely to forget. That would be on account of the buckets’ worth of sweat, flailing acrobatics, costumes, stripping off of said costumes, and furious energy that characterizes the shows, which have shaken stages from the Lion’s Lair to the Hi-Dive. Combine those theatrics with the knowledge that the five punk rockers in Wild Lives daylight as a teacher, ACLU strategist, hypnotherapist, floral designer and acclaimed immigration lawyer, and it makes their chaotic performances all the more indelible."
