Blake Pendergrass: “Wild Lives tries to go with with a group costume theme for all of our shows. These include spandex tuxedo singlets, a People’s Court theme, a football team, mimes, pink rompers, furry pajamas...
“Our first show was in 2014, at a short-lived RocketSpace warehouse in Globeville. Except for a small lamp, it was pretty much pitch-black when we played our 25-minute set. Our singer, Hans, dove over the drums during the first song and kicked a hole through the wall. The next day he went back to patch and spray-paint the drywall. (Much love and respect for Kate Innes from RocketSpace.)”
