February 9th, Denver was lucky enough to get yet another Kpop show- this time from Eric Nam! For those who know me- aside from loving BTS, Stray Kids, and other big boy groups in Kpop, I love Eric Nam. My favorite song being Honestly, though I enjoy almost every song from him. When they first announced that Eric would be coming to Denver I was so excited - having missed his previous tours.
To celebrate I created fun memorabilia tickets to pass out during the concert. One of my favorite things about Kpop concerts in Denver is that I tend to know most people that are there. Especially with a sold out show! I enjoyed walking the line to pass out the tickets and seeing everyone. It was also a blast to meet new friends who recognized my post from Twitter.
The venue was sold out and PACKED. It was amazing to see it so full with other fans. The opener, the talented LynLapid was fantastic. Opening up the show with her smooth vocals and relatable songs. I had never heard of her before but I definitely became a fan after the show. She was funny and of course oh so talented! If you've never heard her music before be sure to check out her TikTok @LynLapic to here more of her amazing music!
As expected, Eric did a fabulous job. Not only was the music great but he was funny and engaging. I got to hear most of my favorite songs including Honestly, Congratulations, and Paradise. He didn't sing Can't Help Myself but one can only ask for so much. Eric's band was also extremally talented and his background dancers gave the performances so much life.
I had such a great time at the concert - and I was extremally lucky to be one's to get VIP. Along with being one of the firsts in I got to take a group photo with him as well as received a signed tour poster! The group photo was quick and easy - you never get to spend a lot of time with the artist during them. But he was very kind and full of smiles! And despite being put on vocal rest he still spoke to us and thanked us for coming.
I had such a blast and like always I got to attend the concert with my amazing friends which made it that much better! I hope that Eric will come back to Denver sometime soon - we will always be here to welcome him with open arms!
See you all at the next show!
January 29th ColoradoKpopper, MissingHaechan, and PaintedBlossoms celebrated the 5 Aquarius boys of NCT! Lucas, Johnny, Doyoung, Jisung, and Jaehyun! We celebrated at the wonderful Snowl once again. With Cupsleeves, special drinks, a photo opportunity, raffle and more! Not only were we celebrating these five boys, but we were also celebrating my birthday and I couldn't have asked for a better birthday party!
Like all these cupsleeve events we had, well, cupsleeves! This time the amazing Katy, aka Missing Haechan, designed our sleeves and they turned out gorgeous. A perfect fit for our universe/Aquarius vibe we were going for. Along with the cupsleeves, our freebee this time was a special deco polaroid - each boy having a specially done design that was had decorated by Katy, Morgan, and I! It was truly fun to find a design that matched each boy and specially decorating each one by hand to make it just that bit more special.
Another fun feature we had at the event was our special event drinks provided by the amazing staff at Snowl! The first one was our Moonwalk Taro Tea - which was a Oreo Taro Tea and it was absolutely delicious. The second one was a bit different but also amazing- especially if you love Lemonade and sweetness. We had the Tastes Like Lemonade, which was a blue Lemonade with Nerds!! Both were absolute sugar bombs but also extremally tasty. The Moonwalk Taro Tea had to be my favorite.
Like with all my events we also made sure to have a special photo area to take all your fun event photos at! This time, to go along with the galaxy theme, we had a galaxy backdrop and some stars to complement that. However, that's not all! We also had our 5 celebrated boys ready and present to take all your desired photos! It was a blast to see everyone's poses with them
For this events charity, we were collecting donations for the Women's Foundation of Colorado to help support women in STEM! Together we were able to raise $210 to donate to this wonderful organization. We collected donations for this in two different ways. The first was with our Gacha! We had capsules with special made Aquarius keychains and constellation stickers designed by @PaintedBlossoms - and in some cases the capsules also contained raffle tickets for our raffle.
You could also purchase raffle tickets and all the proceeds also went to the donation!
Speaking of raffle- we had an amazing raffle prize. Straight from Korea (Thanks to the fantastic Win D.) of many NCT centric items: NCIT Mug, Jisung Hot Sauce Bottle, Lucase Photocard Book, WayV "Take Over the Moon" Black Edition, NCT Dream "We Go Up," and NCT127 "Superhuman!"
A big congratulations to Sophie for winning this great basket!
As always I want to give a big thank you to SNOWL for hosting us and providing tasty drinks! I also want to give a big shout out to my cohosts @MissingHaechan and @PaintedBlossoms for making the event possible with me! I love hosting these events and hosting them with you guys always makes them better. Also a huge thank you to Morgan and Win for gathering supplies and volunteering their time to also make this event happen!
Make sure to check out the calendar to see all upcoming events! See you then!
