Coachella? ATP? Lollapalooza? All of these mega fests are announcing/leaking their mega line ups – but who in Denver needs them? Wanna usher in the Spring and Summer music season in style?
Head up north to the Oriental Theater, where you’ll catch the 2nd Annual Girl Wreck Fest – two stages and 12 solid hours of music, all local, all woman-run (or at least woman-centric) bands – for only $10. How can you beat that? Staying off the street and listening, meeting, drinking with, wrestling with (if that’s your thing) some of Colorado’s newest, most exciting local acts – all brought together by Girl Wreck Presents.
GWP is the brainchild and obsession of Brandy Darling, a promotional company that’s dedicated get some of the coolest music nationwide – worldwide – to stop in Denver and play for you, and Darling is well-connected enough to be making the company a growing, successful operation. Paired with local venues – the Lion’s Lair in the past, and the Oriental now – Girl Wreck has become a force to be reckoned with. And this year’s festival is a perfect celebration of that force.
Featuring more than 20 bands on two stages – including The Blackouts, Throttlebomb, Gata Negra, The Ghost-Towners, Crash, Salt, 9 Volt Fatale, The Front (WY), Buteo Buteo, In The Company Of Serpents, The Cutthroat Drifters, Mike Borgia & the Problems (MO), The Lollygags, Chella Negro & the Charm, The West, Dead Orchids, Fujita Scale, Atomic Americans, Paris By Sea, Tender Krease (NE), Number Station, Brian Parton, and more – this is Denver’s first Spring festival.
Don’t miss it. You’ll regret it for years – I promise.
