Travis Newton is the kind of guy who likes to kill two birds with one stone. “What we try to do,” says Newton, owner of, “is we try to take a venue and some artists and create an event where we can market several different things.” Thus, his latest brainchild: Tatts & Tunes, a three-day tattoo convention showcasing twenty Colorado tattoo artists (many of whom will be tattooing on-site at reduced hourly rates), performances from local bands, contests, stilt-walkers, random entertainment and — why not? — a car show. And it’s all free.

Tatts & Tunes starts at noon today at Casselman’s Bar & Venue, 2620 Walnut Street and continues from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. For more information, visit or call 720-242-8923.
Aug. 13-15, 7 p.m., 2010
