Last night Red Bull Sound Select made their first official appearance in the Mile High City. For those of you unfamiliar with Red Bull Sound Select, it is:
Red Bull Sound Select is a long-term initiative that celebrates local music and the people that push it forward: hard working artists, passionate fans, and tastemakers that shape scenes. It’s part artist development program, part event series, part digital product, part partner network, all working together to bring artists and fans closer together to break music.
Local record label Holy Underground was the first curator to host the sold-out event at Larimer Lounge on Thursday night. With performances from Kitty Crimes, Inner Oceans, RUMTUM, and Shigeto, Denver music fans had a first chance to see some of the areas most talented musicians on one stage. The packed house crowd saw energetic sets from the above mentioned while delicious Red Bull infused drinks flowed from the bar. Being a veteran in the music scene and being able to partake in several Red Bull Sound Select events in the past, it was nice to see the hometown get a taste of such an awesome music initiative that will only continue to put Denver on the map. In fact fans don't even have to wait that long until the next Denver event taking place on March 25 as Welsh alternative rockers The Joy Formidable invade 3 Kings Tavern, with local favorites The Epilogues and Wire Faces. Information for this show can be found here.
In the meantime make sure you check back as we will be embarking on Austin, Texas in the next few weeks for SXSW and will be attending 4 Days in Austin, with established acts such as Earl Sweatshirt, Twin Shadow and Jagwar Ma (who both will be performing in Denver as part of Snowball Music Festival), Sleigh Bells and Danny Brown. It's a great time to be part of the Denver music scene all thanks to the people responsible for bringing us great entertainment and music courtesy of Red Bull and the local influencers who make our great city a place to enjoy music at its most creative and highest level.
