— While lots of good music streams through Colorado, it is equally (if not more important) to acknowledge that there’s a lot of good music just hanging out in our back yard. Consider The Kinky Fingers the new swing set of your backyard.

If you happen to be in the Edgewater neighborhood on Friday, October 31st, and are not sure that hanging around Sloan’s lake after dark is scary enough, go check out The Kinky Fingers at The Joy Ride Brewery.. They are scary good.

While their music speaks for itself, listeners can expect an energy comparable to that of a Julia Stiles dance off scene and an impressive onstage camaraderie.  Travis Page, who remarkably says nothing on stage as their drummer, has lots of scary and inappropriate things to say while in the company of complete strangers.



In the spirit of Halloween, we decided to speak about the scariest things that have ever happened to him.

Stephanie Grey: If you were a mythical creature, what would it look like?



Travis Page: Tree beard from lord of the rings… walking around the wreath section of a Hobby Lobby.

SG: Remember the scene from Spun, where the girl gets locked in the room listening to the same thing for an unknown length of time; if I locked you in room, what would be the scariest music or sound montage I could leave you hostage to indefinitely?

TP: An entire concept album where Bill Cosby and Janice Joplin duet the song “Tiny Bubbles” and every track is a different genre- polka, salsa, dubstep, baroque era, etc. Mostly because I just hate Bill Cosby and Janice Joplin’s voice sounds like the creepy old guy from family guy.

SG: What is the creepiest venue you’ve played at recently?

TP: On our last tour we played a place in Albuquerque (already horrible) that had this terrible smell and there were ‘solicitors’ circling around.

SG: In your opinion, what would the scariest open ended text message say or ask?

TP: “I think my rash is back” or “you might have to retake accounting” are the two scariest texts a phone can receive or send.

SG: What is the scariest thing people don’t know about you?

TP: I watched the PBS show ‘Dragon Tales’ until the age of 16. Literally to the point where I knew the plot and dialogue to every episode because PBS was losing funding at the time so they stopped making more episodes and just airing reruns. I was old enough to understand that entire process of funding and began to think of each character symbolically and how they presented metaphors in the plot. I think their target demographic was ages 3-7?

SG: Recall the loudest and longest you have ever screamed – why did you do it?

TP: When I got my brand new laptop stolen on the first day of school in the dead silent library. I’m honestly surprised I didn’t get arrested.

SG: What do your dance moves look like, and how scared should anyone within 3 feet of you be?

TP: Think Michael Jackson meet The Flying Spaghetti Monster. 8/10 three foot radius fear rating.
