Something I love about the Denver/Boulder/Ft. Collins music mecca is the shear diversity of acts that get brought in! The second week of May does not disappoint, with everything from house to dubstep to electro funk. Here is your list of top 5 shows coming to the Bass Capitol this week.
5. Official Movement Pre Party, ft. Stacey Pullen at Sushi Hai (Friday)
The #SushiSakeAndBeats will be plentiful when techno legend Stacey Pullen headlines Denver’s official Movement Electronic Music Festival pre party. Looking for more reasons to go? 1. It’s the 2 year anniversary of Hailands Underground. 2. It’s the second-to-last event for Hailands Underground. What more could you ask for?
4. Lettuce at Red Rocks (Saturday)
Come get your funk on with Lettuce and a slew of talent this Saturday at Red Rocks. This live band will surely not dissappoint with their unique blend of funk and hip hop, especially with some pretty interesting guests like Ghostface Killah. Openers include Turkauz and The Russ Liquid Test.
3. Bonobo & Nick Murphy at Red Rocks (Friday)
After witnessing their live set at Middle Lands Festival this past weekend, I cannot recommend seeing Bonobo highly enough! Get ready for a night of flawless musicianship and mellow beats.
2. Dr. Fresch at Boulder Theater (Friday)
With millions of plays on Soundcloud and an ever-growing following, Dr. Fresch has been making the rounds with Dim Mak and other major labels. Any electro and bass house fans out there should be excited for this Friday night at the Boulder Theater. His music is gritty and heavy hitting, but he is sure to deliver the prescription you need!
1. Shlump at The Black Box (Thursday)
Need an excuse to do to what Westword just determined was Denver’s hottest underground music spot? Shlump is coming this Thursday with plenty of support. He has been making the rounds in the bass community with a blend of strange and heavy hitting beats that even has Bassnectar adding him to the line up of Bass Center 2017.
