Denver Music Refined
Denver, Colorado is no stranger to hosting a plethora of art and music events. Known as the Bass Capitol, this city is constantly booming with live music of all genres. Up until this spring, every venue in the city held events almost nightly.
Due to constantly changing regulations regarding COVID-19, 2020 has been a year of change and adaptation. Venues, artists, and creators have had to stretch their minds in order to find safe ways to get the Denver community together again. From drive-in concerts to local interactive live streams, the music scene in Denver hasn’t died. In fact, it’s been beautifully refined.
The Acoma Street Project
The Acoma Street Project is marketed as “the first socially distanced art exhibition with festival grade production set to the soundtrack of the world’s best DJ’s.” This open-air venue is in the parking lot behind Bar Standard and Milk Bar. On event nights, the area completely transforms into a beautiful seating area, art walk, and stage.
During the event, art installations and exhibits surround the pop-up. Artists such as Alex Ubatuba, Scott Young, and more bring a 5,000 square foot art walk to life on behalf of IRL Art. In addition, Microdose VR and Android Jones present live visuals.
Live Music (From a Distance)
Each day of the street project, a special live-stream is broadcasted with performances from different world-class DJs. Josh Butler, Claude Vonstroke, and the Desert Dwellers all made a virtual-appearance on a huge 26-foot LED screen. Attendees receive high-quality silent disco headphones upon arrival that they can use to listen to the live-stream. This week they’ve already hosted Adam Deitch and will be hosting artists such as Maddy O’Neal, Kevin Saunderson, Walker and Royce and Mark Farina.
Local Denver DJs also play invigorating in-person sets. The DJ booth is elevated so that each table can see their performance. Furthermore, festival grade production makes this pop-up event quite noteworthy. Artists such as Aaron Bordas, Black/Tuesday, Erin Stereo, RC3, Andy Immerman, and Andrew Fitzgerald have all hit the decks. This week artists such as Project Aspect and Lucid Vision.
The Acoma Street Project is taking health and safety requirements very seriously. All state regulations are being followed and enforced within the venue. For instance, masks and social distancing are mandatory for the duration of the event. Contactless payment, as well as hand sanitizer, are also available. Staff will be making sure that everyone is following these rules to ensure the safety of everyone in attendance.
An All-Encompassing Event
The Acoma Street Project will take place each weekend for the next 5 weeks. Tickets start at $130 for a table that holds up to 4 people. If you have a larger party you can upgrade your table at the door for an additional $30 a person, up to 8 people. Servers visit each table to take food and drink orders in true VIP fashion, proving that this event really does have it all. Although lineups haven’t been released for the upcoming installments of the event, we are beyond excited to see what’s in store.
Denver’s community has become significantly stronger this year, and The Acoma Street Project is a perfect example of this. It is finally giving music and art lovers a safe way to spend a glorious night downtown and be amongst like-minded individuals. This event is sure to become a staple of this summer and is definitely not one to ignore! Since capacity and tables are limited, tickets should be purchased as soon as they’re announced. With only 6 weeks left this is not to be missed.
