Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom is the place to be Thursday, December 9th! Get out of the cold, get down, and get yourself some fresh artists to follow by checking out this week’s fresh SHIFT Thursday’s show. The weekly installment is presented by River Beats and the Cervantes team. They provide Denverites the chance to catch a great array of electronic music flavors. Where better to get an early start on the weekend than one of our city’s most beloved venues? This Thursday, we’ll be getting down with Moontricks, Moontricks, KR3TURE, Melody Lines, and several more amazing artists.

Moontricks is the project of Canadian duo Sean Rodman and Nathan Gurley. Their unique sound encompasses bluegrass and electronic beats. They also blend string instruments and traditional folk elements with bass. Sometimes their tracks feel moody and passionate, other times uplifting and full of movement. You may know their very well-known hit “Home“. You may be familiar with other tracks such as the 2017 single “With You” (from the EP titled the same) or the newer collaboration with Gone Gone Beyond, “Coast”.

KR3TURE is scheduled to play a late set deeper into the night. This master of many instruments is also a talented producer of bass music, hailing from the West Coast and sure to continue gaining attention as he plays a series of upcoming shows with Moontricks on their winter tour. There are a handful of tracks on KR3TURE‘s Spotify page surpassing over a million listens. Notably, the track “Watch It Grow” which has had well over 2 million. In addition to KR3TURE and Moontricks, the Ballroom side of Cervantes will feature sets by local legends Melody Lines (A.K.A. Vinney Crippen, part of Mile High Sound Movement) and Mikey Thunder.

The best thing about SHIFT Thursdays? Both sides of the venue will be alive with music all night. The Other Side has four additional artists scheduled to throw down electronic sets, both sample-based and originally produced. Influences of these might include hip-hop, rap, soul, bass, and various other blends. We will get to hear Colorado-based talent such as MotfivMIDIcinal, and Louie Letdown, as well as Derlee from the East Coast. Each of these producers has a unique vibe and flavor to bring the more intimate stage of the venue, at Cervantes’ Other Side.

This lineup is sure to bring a late night of endless dancing, and a quality variety of electronic music. You can still snag a ticket here. Doors open at 8 PM – see you then!
