This Saturday, March 4th, Denver Rocks the Vote is coming to the Mercury Cafe in Downtown Denver. It will be a night of fun, dancing, art, and education to raise campaign funds for mayoral candidate Ean Thomas Tafoya. With five music acts, food, drinks, and various vendors, this is an event you are going to want to attend!
The Venue: Mercury Cafe
Denver has been home to the Mercury Cafe since 1990, although Colorado has been its home state since 1975. The venue is a restaurant, dance club, music venue, and speakeasy. It is known for hosting eclectic, intimate events, including poetry slams, salsa dancing, and high teas for various political parties. The restaurant highlights local, organic food that is mouth-wateringly good.
The Music: Artist Highlights
The evening will play host to five amazing musical acts. A-Mac & the Height are a Colorado-based reggae/funk/rock band. If you want a sneak peek of what to expect, we suggest listening to their album Part of It All on SoundCloud.
Also on the lineup: Andy Babb and the Big Beautiful Band. As their name suggests, this six-person ensemble is big and beautiful! They have a funky folk rock sound that keeps the dance floor groovin’. To get a preview, check out the live recording of their set for KGNU!
The Buzz is also performing on Saturday. This five-member band is known to bring the funk, jam, and psychedelic rock. They released an album in November of last year titled Live from Cervantes, and it’s a banger!
Elyjah Tribe will also be getting down with us! This California artist’s exciting sound mixes R&B, reggae, hip-hop, and alternative rock. His track “By Me” is this writer’s personal favorite. LatinSoul is set to perform as well.
The Candidate: Ean Thomas Tafoya
Ean Thomas Tafoya is a fourth-generation Denverite. If you are a native, you may have heard him as “Mr. Denver” on KGNU, where he was a DJ for 20 years. When he isn’t working, Ean gives back to the community, whether picking up trash or giving aid to the homeless. To learn more about what Ean is doing, check out his campaign site!
