Two more shows left in the semester! It’s a terribly sad thing, but we’ll keep on trucking to the end. This time, we’re trucking it to Denver, Colorado. I mean, we kind of HAVE to now that Tebow is part of the Broncos, right? Actually, that has nothing to do with anything.
Denver is like the Philadelphia of the West. It’s sometimes looked over for the melting pot of music produced there. There are so many great artists that come out of there, yet Denver isn’t really thought of as a city of music. But they have really everything from India.Arie to Apples in Stereo to Velvet Acid Christ. The even more unique thing is that Denver doesn’t have one genre that it focuses on. It has a little bit of everything.
It has some hardcore bands like Fear Before and Drop Dead, Gorgeous, dance music from Pretty Lights and Pictureplane and country/folk from 16 Horsepower and Paper Bird. And with surrounding cities like Aurora and Boulder, that section of Colorado becomes just a huge PA system.
City Sounds will broadcast that PA on WERW Monday night from 11pm-1am. So listen up and listen good, it’s the second to last show you won’t want to miss!
