One thing we love about working with the Red Bull Sound Select program is working with the best curators in Denver to bring folks unique shows and lineups that you can’t get anywhere else. They are proud to announce their August show, curated by DJ Low Key of The Meadowlark's weekly parties The Solution and Goodness. This month's installment will be headlined by Chicago up-and-comer, Towkio of SaveMoney (Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa), who’s “Wav. Theory” has been absolutely blowing up. We’re not done though, as Towkio will be joined by Red Bull Sound Select artists Fat Tony (Houston, TX) and Denver acts F.L. and CRL CRRLL. This 18+ event will take place at Moon Room on August 22nd at 9pm. Free drinks for the first 100 people through the door, plus other surprises! Doors are open at 8pm and the show is $3 with an RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com. NOTE: RSVP confirmation does not guarantee entry. Entry is first come first served up to capacity, regardless of RSVP. RSVP is also only good for each individual guest. No +1s will be included.
If you’re not familiar, Chicago’s Towkio dropped on of 2015′s most interesting projects in .WAV Theory, featuring an all-start line up of contributors including his SaveMoney cohorts Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa and Leather Cords with ridiculously good production by the like of Kaytranada and Donnie Trumptet (producer of Surf w/Chance & The Social Experiment’s Surf album).
Houston’s Fat Tony has become a legend in his city over the last few years while simultaneously developing a crazy cult following all across the country. Tony’s music is a mix of the classic Houston sound with some Austin-type X-factors and rock star swagger that has to be seen live to be understood. Tony’s live show blew me away at SXSW and we’re super excited to properly introduce his music to Denver.
From his days as a prominent member of Denver’s renowned Foodchain collective to a very successful solo career, F.L. (aka F.Lawless), has firmly established himself as one of the best MCs in the city. His latest project, Mister Freedom, a collab with producer Neon Brown drops the day of the show and from my early listens, stands to further establish F.L. as one of the best MCs in the history of Colorado, destined for even more national acclaim.
Denver singer/songwriter/producer/etc CRL CRRLL’s musical stock has steadily been rising over the last few years, with his latest EP Ghost and his single “Cheers” making noise all around the city and getting love from DJs all across the county. CRL CRRLL (pronounced Carl Carrell)’s next project, the WAVE EP, is part 2 of his double Ghost/Wave EP and ounds INSANELY good from my advance listens. Like F.L. & Neon Brown’s Mister Freedom project, it also drops the same day as the show and sounds primed to take the Colorado favorite to a whole ‘nother level.
