Local group Filthy T will be releasing their first acoustic album on May 10 at Larimer Lounge. As you may be well aware we love giving tickets away here at Ultra5280, why not help celebrate the release album of one of the hardest working bands in Denver. As always check out our Facebook Page for all the deets. In the meantime check out "Can It Be" as featured on their new album. Let's just say we have been blasting this one at the office all week.
Filthy T is the brainchild of six Denverites intent on blending modern rock and smart rap. The band’s signature sound is articulate vocals over soulful guitar parts and driving rhythms.
What We’re About:
The city of Denver is a successful mix of polar opposites – tech startups flourish in a cowboy culture, East Coast and West Coast natives live together in harmony, and hippies and republicans co-celebrate 420. Growing up together in the Mile High City, rapper-producer Russell Ben Hedman and guitarist Joe Barnholt envisioned that the same effortless integration could be achieved in mixing the clever rhythms of hip-hop with edgy rock sounds. The original duo has been joined by bassist Kirby Beegles, drummer Adrian Hernandez, vocalist Nikki Smith and axe man Joe Shull.
Filthy T’s three studio albums to date have garnered continual accolades, including selection for 93.3 KTCL’s Hometown for the Holidays Top 10 and Big Gig Competition Top 10. As a live band, Filthy T has headlined and sold out numerous venues (including the Bluebird Theatre), won a spot as a finalist for Westword's Best of the West, and landed stage time to represent the Denver music scene at the first ever Denver County Fair. The group has opened for touring artists including The Flobots, Vanilla Ice, Rehab and Sidewalk Chalk. The band is also committed to doing great things for the Denver community. Filthy T has organized and played
fundraising concerts for organizations like Children’s Hospital, the victims of the 2012 Aurora theater shooting, Claire Davis (Arapahoe High School shooting victim) and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado.
