Randall Frazier Remembers Fireworks in Denver's DIY Scene

Randall Frazier of Orbit Service: “The first Orbit Service show was in 1998 at an abandoned warehouse, with Rainbow Sugar and S-Fro-7, on the Fourth of July.

The entire time I was performing on the stage, someone was setting off fireworks, which were zipping past me and bouncing off the back walls, ceiling, all around this giant warehouse. I don’t think anyone got hurt, but underground shows were so much wilder in those days. I can’t tell you where the warehouse was located, as I really can’t remember. But it’s probably expensive lofts by now.”
