An outstanding performance from Borgore

Temple Denver has always had a knack for picking high-level performers for their lineups. This weekend was no different as Temple Denver welcomed a pioneer of early bass music. Borgore was sure to bring in the crowd as he’s well known for his signature “Gorestep” sound. The drinks were flowing and the music was blaring. If the energy in the crowd was any indication, one thing is true. That was an outstanding Performance from Borgore.

As stated before, Borgore has been packing the dance floors for over a decade with no signs of slowing down. His signature sound first made waves back in 2012 when he released a song titled “Decisions” with popular singer-songwriter Miley Cyrus. Since then, his music has garnered over 350 million streams across all platforms. He also managed to break into the top 3 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart. This is not surprising as he has worked with an array of big-name talents such as G-Eazy, Juicy J, and Waka Flocka to name a few.

While big names can certainly help build a brand, nothing can stay that big without a solid foundation. Borgore is a talented musician in his own right and has even gone on to create his own record label to help push other artists to new heights. Thanks to Buygore Records; artists like Bailo, TYPHON, and Decimate have all had an opportunity to push new sounds out to the people. It’s this type of work ethic that will keep Borgore in the spotlight for years to come.

Temple Nightclub is a solid venue offering only the best for the nightlife in Denver. Not only do they continue to choose high-level performers but they have the production to back it up. Lights line every wall in the club. The custom sound system can be heard clearly in any part of the venue. One thing is for sure: If you can’t find something fun to do during the weekend, you haven’t checked Temple Nightclub in Denver.

A remarkable performance from Yung Gravy and Dillon Francis

This past weekend at Mission Ballroom was an absolute party. With Yung Gravy and Dillon Francis at the lead, a rather large crowd of fans quickly filled the venue in anticipation of what was to come. As a result, the energy in the room was palpable as the opener for the evening, J|Adore, took the stage to kick things off. The crowd wasted no time getting rowdy to the hard-hitting bass music being amplified throughout the building. Once DJ Tiiiiiiiiiip took the stage, things took an unexpected but very well-received turn. The crowd began to sing in unison as DJ Tiiiiiiiiiip played one sing-along track after the next. Songs like, Country Roads” by John Denver, Africa by Toto, “Stacy’s Mom by Fountains Of Wayne, and evenLet it Go, the theme song from Disney’s animated film Frozen.

This sudden shift in energy set up a big entrance for Yung Gravy. By the time he took the stage the room was basically a madhouse. Dozens of bras were thrown on stage throughout the performance though he preferred to call them “Banana Peels”. This type of fun interaction showed how comfortable Yung Gravy was on stage. He was talking to the crowd in between performances of his popular tracks like oops! and “The Boys are back in town“. Afterwards, Dillon Francis put a solid cap on the evening with his widely popular dance tracks. Lots of newer songs were played out and seemed to be well received.In addition to a slew of throwbacks for any long time fans in the crowd. Songs like Candy” and “Get Low really got the dance floor moving.

The VIP section was right next to the stage. Though there’s plenty of space to sit on couches and chairs, most of the VIPers were standing railside. They still had a place to go when servers arrived with their bottle service. There’s also a second-story seating area complete with its own bar. All for those who prefer to avoid the busy dance floor.

Boulder Theater Hosts Sensational Boombox Cartel Set

Boombox Cartel and SUAHN put on a show at Boulder Theater this past weekend. Unfortunately, Great Dane was unable to make it. He was originally on the lineup, however, he announced in a tweet on Thursday that he would not be able to make it due to feeling sick. “Heartbroken to announce I Won’t be able to play in Portland or Boulder this weekend.” The Tweet starts. “Was feeling trash all week so I wanted to be safe and get tested…”, He continued. Unfortunate as it may be, Great Dane seems to be doing the right thing for the people in attendance.

Boulder Theater was still in high spirits with more and more people coming in as each song played. SUAHN took the stage first to get the crowd active. He blends elements of acid, techno, and bass-driven music. In 2021 SAUHN managed to gain the attention of big-name artists such as Louis the Child, Liquid Stranger, and Boombox Cartel. Because of this, It makes sense that he would cover for Great Dane tonight by opening for Boombox Cartel. His sound fit in well with the evening.
