VIRETTA Summon Vintage Horror on New Single: ‘Remember Me Now?’

Screen Shot 2019-08-23 at 8.42.16 AM.png

Mike and Rob Moroni, the twins who make up rock band VIRETTA, are back and they're coming for you. The last time we checked in with the pair, they had just released a 12-track self-recorded album, THE FEAR, and moved east to the hot and humid city of Nashville...with only half the band.

With just a guitar and a computer in Mike's bedroom, the break ended up yielding over 30 songs. Now, after a year of writing and recording in Music City, the brothers return with their first new offering, "Remember Me Now?". The song is mean and heavy, and apparently about vampires.

"I started getting obsessed with a lot of older horror movies," says Mike. "When the whole town bands together to fight Dracula, or Frankenstein and The Phantom of the Opera, I would start to sympathize with the monster."

But he has a special place in his heart for one monster in particular: "Dracula. He's Satan incarnate in one moment, and in another, a tragic romantic figure. I love that and I feel like that crept into the song too. In "Remember Me Now?" Rock Music is the vampire, waiting in the shadows and ready to come alive again."

Phantogram Gives Us A Glimpse Of New Material

What better way to kick off opening month of the Mission Ballroom than new music from one of our favorite bands Phantogram. The duo of Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter have been busy in the studio making new music including a few singles which are out now including Mister Impossible and Into Happiness. Relying on a surplus of heavy synths and jangling guitar play the duo has kept to the formula with making only a few minor tweaks to the sound we have all come to love. Their Mission Ballroom performance was one of three stops in our fair state as they also played The Stanley Hotel and Mishawaka Amphitheatre. They also managed to fit in a DJ set after their performance at Mission at Larimer Lounge. The band production has grown as well as a drop down curtain similar to one they had a few years ago on another tour flanked the stage. The New York duo had always had a penchant for making us dance and Sunday night was no different as they ripped through their set and complimented Colorado on the new venue as Barthel mentioned the shiny new digs.

Flying Lotus Dazzles With His 3D Tour Stop In Denver

Flying Lotus swept through the newly opened Mission Ballroom last Friday night to bring his 3D Tour to town. Now we are suckers for all kinds of gimmicks, especially when it involves cool projections and lasers. Lotus has been perfecting his skill for many years now and is always at the forefront of bringing his performances to life. The 3D Tour was no different as Lotus positioned himself behind the cockpit of what can be described as something you would find in a junkyard in space. Adorned with 3D projections behind him, concertgoer’s strapped on their glasses to witness an amazing foray into some complex visuals that sprouted right before your eyes. Flying Lotus continues to explore the masterful vision of a true concert experience, we can’t wait to see what comes up with next.
