The original spirit of punk rock lives on in Denver's vibrant DIY music scene, where shows are open to all comers and the surroundings are as likely to include books as they are beer. We talked to a handful of fans about the scene and about the stories behind their tattoos. See their portraits and read what they had to say in this week's music feature, now posted on the Backbeat blog.
