I am thankful for DENVER: THE MECCA

It's no secret; Denver, CO straight up murks the bass music game. I live in Grand Junction, CO and am doing everything in my power to bring the fun to the valley, but it's hard work and fuckin A expensive. Sooo, five or six times a year, I treat myself to a week long Denver trip, laden with more shows than I can handle. Thanksgiving week will be no different. Time to spend some quality time with my friends and family, hitting bass shows and at many different venues as I can. SUPER STOKED that this year has a STACKED lineup for me. The festivities start on Tuesday night 11/26/13 at Cervantes Masterpiece for Nightmares on Wax featuring JK Soul, Mikey Thunder, and CurlyOnE thanks to the Sub.Mission crew for another solid E-Tuesday. I'm covering the event so you KNOW I'll be getting some dope video for you all to vibe on. Oh say what? You never heard of these cats? Well that just won't do, familiarize yoself :)

Wednesday (11/27/13) its back to Cervantes, this time on The Other Side for Marvel Years with Krooked Drivers, JK Soul, Lidsky, and Mr. Bugatti hosted by Mikey Thunder. Marvel Years aka Cory Wythe is an east coast producer from Vermont that has been crushing the game with his soulful glitchy sample based tunes and getting LOTS of love from the Colorado scene, thanks in a big way to miss Bronzy Wizzle, the owner of The Daily Steeze, another prominent Denver music blog. Ya'll know I've been on the Krooked tip for a minute, and it's no secret that having the PLM family man Mikey Thunder in their corner has done nothing but great things for them. SOOO JAZZED on their new EP dropping today on Gravitas Recordings, shit is FIRE!! I saw them open for Artifakts, Late Night Radio, as well as Marvel Years earlier this year at Cervantes before the two day Pretty Lights run @ Red Rocks. Never seen Lidsky or Mr. Bugatti live, but their tunes or dope and if they are sick enough to share a bill put together by Mikey Thunder, I'm sure it's gonna be epic. Check out their music!!

And Thanksgiving Night: Porter Robinson @ Beta for NRG Thursdays. This is going to be a very special show for me, as I have NEVER been to the world renowned nightclub Beta Denver. Mostly because I'm nearly 30 years old and going to clubs chalk full of 18 year olds hasn't been my thing for a grip, but for Porter, I think I can make an exception :) He's been one of my favorite mainstream electro house producers for a while now, and to hear him play "Say My Name" on a primed Funktion 1 sound system should be a real treat!
