Michael Vlatkevich Trio – Sunday, June 8th

At 7:00 pm The Michael Vlatkevich Trio will be here, featuring Michael Vlatkovich, of Portland OR, on trombone and Denver favorites Kent McLagan and Chris Lee on bass and percussion, respectively. Michael’s compositions are always fun and inventive. All three of these consummate musicians bring with them a hearty sense of adventure and an ease of harmony and rythm to inspire envy in the erstwhile musical. We’re happy to have them back!

Hamster Theatre Concert

Hamster Theatre is truly a one-of-a-kind act. Genre-bending is the name of their game, so they’re truly a challenge to describe. Their music presents recognizable elements in unexpected contexts, making this a riveting and fun experience in familiarity and dislocation. Really a treat, and a bit of a supergroup, too. Sunday, May 18, 7:00.

Eleanor Swanson and Friends

For the 100th Anniversary of the Ludlow Massacre we’re honored to host Eleanor Swanson, poet, author and Regis faculty member reading from her book Trembling in the Bones. This beautiful and moving account of those events has been out of print for a number of years and we celebrate its new edition, which will, of course, be for sale, along with some of Eleanor’s other books.

As complement, also on the roster for the evening will be music by Bud Fogerty and John Cross ( guitar, bass and voice). They’ve created a short program of mining songs to share with us.

This event takes place Sunday, April 27th, right between the actual anniversary ( April 20, 1914) of the massacre and May Day, also known as International Workers Day. At 7 pm.
