Denverites of all kinds emerge into the sunlight for the Underground Music Showcase, the music festival with 19 venues that takes over South Broadway each summer. While most of the focus is on the music -- and rightfully so -- we wanted to turn our lens to the people. It's another one of our grand portrait sessions.
