Food truck party invaded by parade of hearses -- seriously

Categories: First Look, Photos

No, that's not a joke about the fatty substances for sale at this past weekend's Justice League of Street Food event at 29th and Huron.

Hearses rolled up to the party on Saturday night, sans corpses, surely surprising everyone in attendance! Scary!

The Denver Hearse Association, led by Zachary Helm's trademark batwings-and-guns deathmobile, and the Itchy-O Marching Band arrived around 9:15 p.m. Saturday and played about a thirty-minute set by flaming hearse light, naturally.

I've been looking for ANY info on this event... because try explaining what happened that night to anyone, with any success... it just one of those things that you had to be there to understand!  A hearse leading an alien/satanic marching band, with sounds of cattle and martians projecting from their instruments, as they collectively walked down the street in all black, with LED lights wrapped around their bodies, with a Chinese dragon thrown into the mix just because it wasn't already captivating enough.  It was pretty amazing, despite how totally trippy it was.  STRANGE, but fascinating, and utterly impossible to explain to anyone without pictures, or even better, a video... so they could actually hear the twisted, and dark, yet freakishly intriguing sounds blaring from the huge speaker set up they had.  I was literally too stunned and caught off guard to have the where-with-all to grab my camera or SmartPhone to document what was happening, so THANK YOU for doing what I clearly couldn't!  I'm stoked I found this write up, because for months I've been searching the web to find any information on what went down that night.  It was B.A.N.A.N.A.S.!  Finally I can share my experience that night... with those who really missed out on an out of this world performance. 


That guy lives down here on south Broadway in Englewood. That really is his day to day driving car. I see it all the time around here. It's the craziest car and has a flamethrower on it and then you see him in it with his huge mohawk and you just say "God bless south Broadway and America too!".
