Denver hosts a few shindigs this week

As the Outside Lands Festival wraps up here in San Francisco (more on that soon!), things are just heating up in the city I return to, as Denver plays host this week to the Democratic National Convention. Our capital city is submerged in a deluge of politicians, parties, speeches, rallies, and of course, the random famous people.

Although I am not a Dem, I am proud to be partnering with some other local music lovers to bring a week-long music party during this notable week in a non-partisan, collective effort to recognize and celebrate our musical community while looking forward to a positive future. We're bringing sexy back with DISCOBAMA at the the Shag Lounge all week long (830 15th St at Champa, one block from the Convention Center). Here's what we're up to:

7pm Patchwork
8pm Joshua Novak Band
9pm Young Coyotes
DJs Soup / Hot to Death

Super Tuesday Dance Party.
9pm DJs Chain Gang of 1974 / Boyhollow / Hot To Death

7pm Magic Mice
8pm Rabbit is a Sphere
9pm Cat-A-Tac, Everything Absent or Distorted
DJs Tyler "Danger" / Boyhollow

7pm Life In Electric
8pm Kissing Party
9pm Laylights
DJs Soup / Hot to Death

DNC Wrap Party, Starts 10pm. DJs Boyhollow / Hot to Death

The DISCOBAMA festivities are sponsored by Three Olives vodka, and the events this week are a collective effort of the MONOLITH Festival, Lipgloss (Denver3.com), Shag Lounge, Needlepoint Records, HunnyPot Unlimited, Cause=Time, The Donnybrook Writing Academy, and Fuel/Friends.

Come play!

So if you're not a Dem, you must be Green! (I hope)

Your not a Democrat? Please tell me your an Independant and not Rebulican. How could a gal from SF and a Big PJ fan not be a democrat? Please explain. My love for you hangs in the balance.

I think it would be really cool if you were to "come out" and proclaim the fact that you are Republican rather than saying non-dem. It is such an anomoly to have someone so into great music like yourself that is Republican. Of course, that is my stereotyping Republicans. Maybe you could show the world that there are some Republicans out there that are really ok. I think you and my parents are the only ones I like. Maybe start a separate blog? I dunno, it just seems that a lot of your fans are blown away by the fact that you aren't a dem. Of course, maybe you shouldn't listen to anyone and keep on what you're doing, keeping politics and music separate.
