You kids who are are sticking around or leaving a bit late for spring break are in luck: this Friday, March 16, Girls are coming to The Gothic Theatre in Denver along with another fantastic group of West-coasters, Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Check this vid to see what could be in store for you in a matter of three short days.
This Saturday, 3/3/2012, join The SOCC as we revisit that Decade of decades; that cultural crossroads; that pre-millennial nether-zone; that halcyon era of our early adolescence; the Nineties. Of course, Nineties revivalism is nothing new–Doc Martins are cool again, we all miss Napster (Down with SOPA), Twin Peaks, Blah Blah Blah–but surely there’s more to be exhumed. Let us remind you of all that you’ve forgotten/repressed. Let us transport you back to your own juvenility (a la Juvenile of “Back That Thang Up” fame). We’ll all be in it together.
Jake Brownell + Josh Cuevas
Anna Forster-Smith + Erin O’Neill
Kathleen Hallgren + Zoe Isabella (Smath and Joe)
Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase, as usual. Click “Continue Reading” for some appetizers.
That’s right ladies and gentleman, what better way to start the first week back at school with the FIRST EVER WINTER SHOW AT RED ROCKS? Atmosphere, Common and Grieves this Friday.
Macklemore is playing in Denver this Friday, the only problem is that the show is sold out already. For those of you who don’t have tickets, you can spend your Friday night watching this video. It’s a remix of “Otherside”, featuring Fences.
It’s about to get so real at the carriage house. Come freak with us. Click “continue reading” for more info…
Happy Halloween! Murs, the LA hip-hop genius who is also a part of Felt and Living Legends, is performing this Sunday at the Black Sheep.
More Seattle hip hop? Of course. Everyone who saw Blue Scholars at Llama last year knows how great they are, and guess what? They’re playing at the Black Sheep this Saturday.
Hailing from the incredibly prolific LA Low End Theory scene (think Flying Lotus, Teebs, Samiyam, etc.), this 21 year old producer crafts some of the most mature “dubstep” in the blogsophere right now. Where so many contemporary electronic musicians simply wield The Womp like a weapon in a war against artful restraint, Shlohmo challenges himself and his listeners to transcend the desire for visceral indulgence, opting instead to dwell in the ethereal realm of texture and stasis. If music is sex, then Shlohmo is tantric. Each song is a kind of subtle mediation upon itself; establishing a theme and then asking “why?”, his music quickly betrays its own futility while nevertheless insisting upon its beauty. An irrepressible remixer, Shlomo applies this deconstructive tactic to other people’s songs as well, and, in the process, he manages to distill something eminently listenable from even the most frustratingly bad pop-gangsta-rap song (for example).
Shlohmo will be coming to The Other Side at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom on Tuesday, October 18th. Doors open at 8:00pm, and tickets are $10. Click the “Concerts” link for more information.
TOMORROW, Sun. Sept. 25, Low is coming to CC’s Armstrong theater. Tickets are $10 at the Worner Desk with a student ID, doors open at 6:30, and the show starts at 7:00. See you all there.
Mayer Hawthorne’s patented brand of neo-motown plus cool retro video? Yes Please!
