That's right! You read it correctly. With shows like Bill Frissel, Speak, Thomaz Stanko, and an upcoming Nels Cline Singers show, Dazzle seems to be changing its ways a little bit...at least opening up to new possibilities and perhaps, younger, more hip concert goers...although this is an opinion that is my own. So in the tradition of the aforementioned performances, Dazzle has invited Aenka to perform on Thursday April 29th. Aenka, looking for an opportunity to have a CD Release & Tour Kickoff decided that it would be so. The best part is that Becca Mhalek (Nels Cline, Nightshark, Wilco, Ron Miles, etc), who helped start the band back in the day, will be joining them on this fine occasion all the way from Chicago. So please, if you have plans, cancel them and come to Dazzle tomorrow night. The shrimp cocktail is amazing.
Here are full details: Aenka CD Release Party feat. Becca Mhalek Dazzle Jazz Lounge 930 Lincoln St. Denver, CO Thursday, April 29 10p - 1a CDs available for half price (only $5). quantity limited. This is our chance to affect the future of Dazzle, to show them that there is quality jazz oriented music that can affect the lives of everyone. So please come, for the future of Dazzle, for the Denver music scene, for America....for the world!

"Our top flier this week is the work of the folks at Bocumast, the record label/design house that's home to Astrophagus, Cougar Legs, Iuengliss and many other fine acts. Its intriguing use of color and collage caught our eye right away.....read on here." -Cory Casciato As the designer of this poster, I'd like to thank my mother and father for always pushing me explore my creative side, while telling me I would never make money at it. They were right on all 3 accounts. I'd also like to thank E.T. the movie, social networking sites (for all the inspiration). Knowing that so many people have feelings, thoughts, and lives that are so unbelievably dull has inspired me to be the difference or at least attempt to entertain or enlighten, if anything. I'd like to thank Epson for their scanning technology. And lastly, I'd like to thank Hunter Dragon for thinking outside the box with a grand album of beautiful prolifictionness.
//"From romance and politics to UFOs and God, songwriters cite all kinds of inspiration for their music. Hunter Dragon, though, brings a far more fundamental influence to bear on his quirky, head-scrambling new album, Weight & Measure. "I was settling down for the first time in a long while," he says. "I had a job and a place to live. I had food on my table......READ ON HERE.""// -Jason Heller. We are proud to announce that our little baby boy, Hunter Dragon, is now the proud father of a beautiful, fruitful musical release almost unearthly when compared to recent albums. Please visit with Hunter at his CD Release show on April 20th, 2010, give him some love from your wallet and get one of this glorious discs for your computer, player, or gas taker.
Weight and Measure, Hunter Dragon's third release for Bocumast Records, is the result of a love affair with an instrument. Hunter found his beloved Fender Rhodes MKI in an abandoned church balcony, took it home to his haunted basement, and began channelling music through it. The result was "Weight and Measure"; at once playful, colorful, dark and imaginative, the album meshes the ambient, textural realm of noise music with the songcraft of folk and pop. Weight & Measure will be available next Tuesday the 20th via digital download outlets and limited handmade physical copies. We are also celebrating his new album with a show that night.

Our homies D Numbers release their new album "ONDA" in Denver this Friday night @ Theory+Practice. We've been listening to this album like crazy since it has been finished and we were given the chance to design the album artwork which we are very stoked about! "The culmination of eight years of collaboration, Onda represents the group’s most ambitious work to date. The album melds the bands varied tastes into colorful, spacious soundscapes reflective of the band’s love for each other, their fans, and the liberating vacuum of the Southwest."
