Red Bull Sound Select is excited to announce the next installment of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: Denver, which will take place Friday, October 20 at The Bluebird Theater, 3317 E Colfax Ave. The live music showcase features headliner Margaret Glaspy and rising artists Pearl Charles and The Still Tide.
The show is 18+ and tickets are $5 for those who RSVP online at Red Bull Sound Select and $15 at the door without an RSVP.
This month’s showcase was curated by The Underground Music Showcase and features one headliner and two artists on the rise. Throughout the rest of 2017, the showcase visits different career-launching Denver venues and introduces an exciting lineup of artists to audiences.
Margaret Glaspy is a singer-songwriter based in New York. Having cut her teeth as a touring musician, Glaspy’s solo career began in earnest in 2012 with a sound that’s drawn nice comparisons to stalwarts like Elliott Smith, Liz Phair and Joni Mitchell. Having spent a few years perfecting her craft, her debut album, Emotions and Math which she self-produced, dropped last summer via ATO Records. The California-born musician hit the road hard behind her debut playing stages the world over in North America, Australia, China and Norway and sharing bills with the likes of The Lumineers, Andrew Bird and Car Seat Headrest. This marks Glaspy’s first CO performance in over a year.
Red Bull Sound Select alum Pearl Charles will support. This Los Angeles native culls her sound from a shimmering palette of Americana, southern blues, 70’s country and beyond to create a very comfortable kind of nostalgia. A touring musician since 18, Charles has been member of outfits The Blank Tapes and The Driftwood Singers, having shared the stage with the likes of Father John Misty, The Growlers and The Allah Las before embarking on a solo career in 2015. Her debut, self-titled EP followed in 2016 on Burger Records. Hear it here. With new music and the horizon and a very select set of live dates for the rest of 2017, her Denver performance is one not to miss.
Rounding out this exciting lineup are the Denver-based project The Still Tide. A creation of Anna Morsett and Jacob Miller who originally met while living in New York, the pair traded the big city for a move out west where a first Denver show band found the transplants opening for Angel Olsen at the tiny Hi-Dive. Country-rock swagger with a dusty open road freedom, The Still Tide’s third release, the EP Run Out was released in August via Greater Than Collective. Take a listen here.
