August got a big send-off at the Savoy Ballroom
on Friday as over fifty MCs came together for a marathon, four-hour-long continuous rap session. The first annual Rap-A-Thon
ran from 8 p.m. through midnight and featured local rappers—including Dent, Turner Jackson, and more—in a nonstop cipher. That same night, more DJs and MCs did their own thing at the Cold Crush street party, on Larimer. All photos by Antonio Valenzuela.
