Happy Monday! I spent the weekend doing sound as part of the 16th Denver Post Underground Music Showcase – that featured some 400 acts, mostly from here in our region. I had the extreme pleasure of working with the likes of Chimney Choir, Edison, Rob Drabkin, and others …and met Shilo Gold, a Colorado native who moved to Los Angeles six years ago to pursue her career there, but who is thinking she might come back to Denver.
There’s no air conditioning in the South Broadway Christian Church, a 100+ year old building with amazing acoustics – requiring very minimal sound reinforcement. Perfect for acoustic based acts. It was hot, and humid in that room and everyone just played through it .. it was a really excellent weekend.
Rob Drabkin has a new release coming out this fall .. be listening for that on the show here soon.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Oskar Blues Fooderies! They are the new sponsor of “IN COLORADO MUSIC HISTORY,” the segment that runs at the top of each hour of the show. Oskar Blues Fooderies includes the Original Brew and Pub in Lyons, and Homemade Liquids and Solids, CHUBurger, and Cyclehops Bike Cantina in Longmont, Hotbox Roasters coffee, and coming soon to Denver (under construction in RiNo and LoDo).
The 10th Anniversary of the Colorado Playlist is coming up August 7th at the historic Mishawaka Amphitheater – All Ages. Tickets $15 / $17.50 DoS SUPER EXCITED! We’re planning on recording the event for a future episode of The Colorado Playlist. DON’T FORGET => The “Mish” is a shuttle venue. Parking is extremely limited and is $40 a car. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you buy tickets and parking/shuttle passes online.
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
I became familiar with SuCh (Su Charles) a few years ago now, and have enjoyed watching her evolution as a recording artist. She’s already accomplished much as an actor in our scene, winning prestigious awards .. this video showcases her depth as a singer, and actor.
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation. I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.
In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.
Unfortunately, only two of the five (D) or (N) tracks this week had embeds available, and I like both enough to keep them in the “Playlist.”
