Not From Here’s Event Launch

This Friday, Denver’s newest nightlife event company Not From Here is having an event launch party, and it’s sure to be a showstopper. From Denver’s top brands selling their products to networking, a fashion show, and a dance party afterward, this event is a new avant-garde experience. So let’s get the deets!

Who is Not From Here?

Evan Carp is the founder of Not from Here. He looked at the Denver Nightlife and noticed that something was missing. Something luxurious. So he launched Not From Here with the mission of providing an up-scale place for people to network, have some drinks, and enjoy the best Denver offers. This event showcases all of this and even more amazing little details!

Where is the Event Launch?

The Event Launch is at Skylight, a Sante Fe Art District venue. The building was built in 1900, and throughout its life, it has housed many art and photography galleries. On top of all-white brick walls and skylights to highlight Colorado’s gorgeous skies, this event space is breathtaking and perfect for this event.

What is happening at the Event Launch?

The night will begin with drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and vendor booths from Denver’s top brands. After some time to mingle and check out the booths and the art on display by Matt Henserson, everyone will be gathered for a fashion show in partnership with INHERENT, a luxury menswear brand. After the fashion show, the drinks and hors d’oeuvres will return, and the vendors will shut down to make room for a dance party in partnership with Backyard Sessions.

Latto Brings Big Energy to The Ogden

Latto Brings Big Energy to The Ogden

Do you know what I love about Denver? There is no amount of cold weather that will stop us from going to a show. With a line out the door well into the second act, this was leading up to be an unforgettable night. On a chilly Wednesday night, Latto along with special guests Saucy Santana and Kali, graced the Ogden Theater with their infectious presence. On tour to promote her new album “777,” Latto packed the house with a sold-out show. High in energy and drenched in heavy-hitting beats, I’m remorseful for anybody who missed out.


J Young MDK kicked the night off, followed by Kali and Saucy Santana. Kali burst onto the stage playing all the favorites from “MMM MMM” to “Do a Bitch.” Her outfit, consisting of nothing but black leather, screamed of influence from greats like Left Eye and Lil’ Kim. Shortly after, Saucy Santana emerged before the crowd, ready to keep the energy alive. Saucy was nothing but smiles, bringing audiences members on stage to perform. Both artists, engulfed in their performances, never hesitated to stop and take care of the fans, halting the show to help people out of the crowd and hand out water, which the people appreciated.

Main Event

“Latto! Latto! Latto!” is all you could hear as the crowd writhed in anticipation. Finally, after a 45-minute intermission, the Queen arrived ready to put on a show. The stage was set with a casino theme and followed by two amazing dancers, Latto turned the stage into a dance floor. She strolled out in an all “fur” outfit that screamed, “this will be a night to remember.” Playing chart-topping hits such as “Energy” and “Sunshine,” this show became a melting pot for a good time.


In Conclusion, even though this concert was phenomenal from start to finish, this wasn’t just a regular show. As I looked around, I realized this was an environment of inclusion. Different walks of life from different communities, like LGBT and BIPOC, congregated under one roof to enjoy some fantastic music. It was apparent that everyone was there to enjoy themselves, that’s it. With performers that come from said communities themselves, you knew it was ok to be yourself. At the end of the day, it didn’t matter what you looked like or where you came from, we all said “F*ck Rice Street” that night.
