Top Five Mile High Music Fest Artists I Kinda Want to Lick

The author is a Denver-based music junkie and quasi-music writer of the female variety, and not she's afraid to admit that she sometimes wants to make out with the bands she writes about.

This year's Mile High Music Festival billed some of the hottest bands around.

Needless to say, I was in fan-girl heaven as I scuttled from stage to stage reviewing sweaty, sexy sets and interviewing lovely musicians, marveling at their wonderfully asymmetrical hair and excessively skinny pants. So -- now that I've finally stopped panting -- here are the top five Mile High Music Festival musicians I'd like to lick. Or be licked by. Either way.
