Photos: Comic Con pops up at the Colorado Symphony
For Saturday night's performance at the Colorado Symphony, the scene wasn't the classic crowd. In place of stuffed shirts and pearls, there were Star Wars stormtroopers and Star Trek crew members wandering the lobby of Boettcher Concert Hall, along with a whole zoo of other comics, sci-fi and gaming characters. And that was just the beginning of "The Hero's Journey -- A Symphonic Tribute to Comic Con," a full evening of Denver Comic Con-approved compositions, with a guest spot by DeVotchKa's Nick Urata on theremin. Photographer Danielle Lirette caught it all for Westword, bringing back these images and more.
Now see the full Tribute to Comic Con slide show.
