Fancy Focus: This Weekend!

There are a lot of amazing things going on in the greater Denver area this weekend and we wanted to pass along a few suggestions of the dance/design variety if you haven't already figured out what you are doing...

First up is Fancy Tiger Clothing's own Matthew Brown a.k.a. DJ Fancy Tiger, who will be spinning dance beats with Tyler Snow and Patrick Collins this evening, Friday April 8th at Lost Lake starting around 9pm.
