Evanoff’s Debut Album, SINGULARITY, Is Here On March 2nd

Get To Know Evanoff

Evanoff is a Colorado-based trio that produces and performs music under the self-proclaimed genre “dream rock”. Their electronic-rock hybrid sound has attracted listeners within Colorado and throughout the United States. Their mission as a band is to provide euphoric and uplifting experiences through their music. But, that’s not all. Evanoff also strives to break down cultural boundaries and create a community of like-minded individuals in order to help the world better understand humanity.

Over the past few years, Evanoff has really worked to push their unique music, sound, and inspiring message. Specifically, they have performed at venues across the United States, creating a cult following of sorts. They already have a sold-out tour under their belt which was their most recent tour, the Fall tour.

Incoming: SINGULARITY

On March 2nd, 2022, Evanoff will release their debut album, “SINGULARITY”. This album is highly anticipated by listeners everywhere. According to Evanoff, “SINGULARITY” isn’t just a collection of songs. Instead, “it is a concept album that flows as a single piece of music and brings to light important conversations about society that we need to be having.”

For their debut album, Evanoff is going back to their roots and incorporating elements from their early musical influences as opposed to the jamtronica that they’ve been focusing on most recently. When listening to “SINGULARITY”, listeners will be reminiscent of the sounds of Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin. In othe

r words, this album is going to be heavy-hitting and full of energy. For example, the first track of the album, titled “Zizkov”, does little to ease you into the album and comes out strong from the get-go.

What To Expect

SINGULARITY” is a glorious work of art. Truly, it proves to be an emotional listening experience from start to finish. Evanoff combines soaring lead guitars, massive drums, and intelligent sound design in each and every song. In fact, this is the type of music that you can expect to hear at huge stadium rock shows.

Throughout the album, different monologues and interludes are included. The purpose of these is to remind listeners of the approaching singularity. The term singularity can be defined as “the moment in which technology and humans become one”. Some of the topics that are brought up during the album are serious and can be controversial. However, Evanoff isn’t trying to take a stance on the varying topics. What they are trying to do is remind people how important it is to have these conversations with others.

“The Future Is Now”

Evanoff‘s upcoming debut album, “SINGULARITY”, does a wonderful job of sharing the band’s mission with its listeners. Furthermore, it provides a beautiful and emotional listening experience full of important topics relevant to the world as we see it today. On March 2nd, listeners will finally have this masterpiece in their hands. It’s only a few days away!

Currently, Evanoff has a few upcoming tour dates scheduled. On March 5th, they will be performing at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO. After stopping in Steamboat Springs on March 12th, they’re off to tour the East Coast as well as the midwest. Great news; they’ll be back in Colorado this summer for Sonic Bloom!

Powabunga Festival Makes Its Magnificent Return To Vail This December

Presenting: Powabunga

Winter in Colorado is absolutely breathtaking. Whether you call this state your home or make it a point to visit during the winter months, there is something to be said about spending time surrounded by the beautiful snowcapped mountain ranges. Nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains lies a small town called Vail, Colorado. This internationally-renowned winter destination is extremely popular for skiers and riders, as well as anyone looking to step away from everyday life and simply relax.

This December, one of Colorado’s newest music festivals is making its magnificent return to Vail. Powabunga Festival is set to take place from Thursday, December 9th to Sunday, December 12th. This festival will include “four epic days and nights of live music and mountain activities“. Powabunga will be held outdoors at Ford Park, with official after-parties at various locations.

The Powabunga Experience

Spring of 2019 marked the first time that Powabunga transpired in Colorful Colorado. After the event’s massive success, the festival was supposed to take place in two locations in the spring of 2020: Vail, CO, and Lake Tahoe, NV. Unfortunately, Powabunga had to be canceled due to COVID-19.

This year, the festival is back and better than ever. The insane lineup features headliners Rüfüs Du Sol and Bob Moses. In addition, attendees can look forward to seeing Vintage Culture, Elderbrook, Channel Tres, LP Giobbi, and more. View the full lineup below!

So far, the event’s schedule is as follows. The Welcome Party will take place on Thursday before the official festival and after-parties on Friday and Saturday. Finally, Bottomless Bunga Brunch closes out the weekend on Sunday. If the event aligns with 2019, attendees can expect to see various food, drink, and craft vendors as well as art installations at the festival. Additionally, heat lamps and seating areas will be available in the VIP section.

Discover Vail, one ofPowabunga‘s official sponsors, has facilitated putting together a guide for those who plan on attending. Click here for more information on skiing and riding, après functions, dining and nightlife, and shopping. For those coming from out of town, travel accommodations for the event can be viewed here. It’s totally possible (and easy!) to get to and from your chosen Vail Resort hotel and your local airport of choice.

Secure Your Tickets

Currently, the only ticket still available for sale is the general admission weekend pass. Which provides the ticketholder access to the venue for the two festival days, December 10th and 11th. For those that scored a VIP ticket before they sold out, a bunch of extra perks is added. This includes a premium viewing area with heaters, passed hors d’oeuvers, a VIP tent with a private bar, and heated bathroom trailers.

Thinking you’ll decide to send it with your squad? Click here for tickets!

Let’s Boogie

Powabunga Festival will be here before we know it! Grab those beanies and oversized winter jackets. Lace-up your dancing (snow)boots, and start hydrating now. Secure your tickets and travel plans, and let’s get ready to boogie.

Here are a few pro-tips before you make your way to Vail:

  1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, especially if you are not used to the altitude. Water is important, and it will be for sale in the venue throughout the weekend. You can always boost your hydration with electrolytes!
  2. Bring extra layers. The weather will change significantly when the sun goes down, and it’s better to have extra clothes for when the temperature drops. Also, handwarmers are always great to have.
  3. Bring hearing protection. Outdoor venues are still loud, and we’ve heard that Powabunga has a bangin’ sound system.
  4. Designate a sober driver for the night, use the town’s bus service, or rideshare! Safety first, ladies and gents.
  5. Always be kind, considerate, and respectful!

We’ll see you in Vail!

Celebrate Colorful Colorado at High Ground Music & Arts Experience

On Saturday, October 2nd, a brand new event is coming to Denver, Colorado. The High Ground Music & Arts Experience will take place at Levitt Pavilion at Ruby Hill Park. This event is one of the first of its kind, focusing on bringing a full day of chill, electronic music to the metro area. A wide array of vendors, most of which are native to Colorado, will bring amazing food, drinks, and other products to High Ground.

Those that will be attending this groundbreaking event that’s set to capture the essence of fall in Colorado are called Revelers. An exclusive Facebook group, Revelers of High Ground, is the perfect place to find discussions, polls, giveaways, and more. Another way to meet other Revelers is through a community in the app, Radiate. They are also hosting a giveaway for two tickets! Click here to enter.

Party Guru Press was lucky enough to connect with Noah Levinson, the founder of Levitate Events. He’s worked hard for the past five years to carefully curate essentially every detail of High Ground. This interview happened via email, where we learned all about how the event came to be, what Revelers can expect to see at the event, and what the future looks like for High Ground. Keep on reading for the full scoop!

Let’s Get Chill, Let’s Get Vibey

Kierstin Rounsefell (Party Guru Press): Can you please introduce yourself and tell us about how you first got involved in the music and entertainment industries?

Noah Levinson (High Ground Music & Arts Experience): Hello! My name is Noah Levinson and I’m the founder of Levitate Events. Live music has played a huge role in my life since I was little. My parents took me to shows since before I could remember and encouraged me to learn how to play different instruments. In middle school, I discovered electronic music and learned how to DJ. I used some Bar Mitzvah money to purchase Serato and turntables, and quickly began performing for friends, birthday parties, weddings, and other events. Along the way, I fell in love with event creation and production and started curating shows of my own.

Party Guru Press: What do you do for High Ground?

Noah Levinson: I am the director of High Ground. I have an incredible team that supports and expands my vision, but I’ve carefully crafted almost every detail and aspect of High Ground over the past 5 years. I’ve handled the talent buying, venue selection, creative direction, and team building. Now, as we move into the final stretch on the road to High Ground, I’m working closely with each of my team leads (production, VIP, site ops, vendors, etc) to make sure everything comes together beautifully.

Party Guru Press: This is the first year of the High Ground Music & Arts Experience. What inspired you to create this event?

Noah Levinson: High Ground began as a conversation with my best friend Jacob. Some of our favorite artists at the time were Kasbo, Flume, and others in the “chill” and “vibey” side of electronic music, and we were upset that there weren’t many festivals that fully captured that sort of sound. This planted the seed that eventually grew into High Ground.

A Musical Ode To Colorado

Party Guru Press: I read online that High Ground is “designed to capture the essence of Colorado while providing incredible fusions of live electronic talent.” How will this event combine the beautiful elements of Colorado with unique live music sets?

Noah Levinson: There are so many amazing things about Colorado. Our dedication to the outdoors, the strong local music scene that listens to many genres, our progressive cannabis culture, a bourgeoning local art scene, and so many other things make our state a special place. Yes, we are the bass capital, but we also love so many other genres out here.

When I envision Colorado in the Fall, I also think about snow-kissed mountains, golden leaves on every tree, crisp Autumn air, and the exciting potential for every kind of weather. This is the essence of Colorado, and with nearly 25 artists from around the world (many are from Colorado) who perform live fusions of electronic, funk, jam, R&B, and hip hop, High Ground is set to capture that unique energy as a whole.

Party Guru Press: Has everyone in the general public reacted well to the announcement of the event so far? Do people seem excited to attend?

Noah Levinson: As my team prepared to announce in May, one of my biggest insecurities was that my years of dedication to this project would be met with a lackluster response. However, I couldn’t be happier with the reactions and comments we’ve received so far! People tell me every day how excited they are for High Ground, and thank me for curating something unique and unexpected; something that pushes against the grain.

When we first announced the lineup, somebody shared it on Facebook saying “Everything from the Colorado-inspired branding & chill electro vibe to the venue choice & lineup is impeccable. I predict that High Ground will gain national recognition and become Denver’s first major destination music festival within the next few years as it continues to grow.” This is the sentiment I’m frequently met with, and I get goosebumps thinking about what we’ve created and where we can take it.

High Ground Revelers

Party Guru Press: What artists are you excited to see perform at High Ground?

Noah Levinson: All of them. Seriously, every artist from the bottom to the top are some of my favorites. Kasbo was one of the first artists I placed on my “hit list” 5 years ago, so having him with us this October is full circle; a dream come true. 

Party Guru Press: How did you and your team go about finding art, food, and drink vendors for the event?

Noah Levinson: We listen to what our friends and Revelers (this is what we call our attendees) are excited about! We’re excited to present a full array of vendors at High Ground, many of which are brands native to Colorado. We’re still looking for a few more food and product vendors. Brands can apply on our website on the “Get Involved” page. 

Party Guru Press: What will make this event different from other art and music events that take place in the Denver Metro area?

Noah Levinson: Quite frankly, everything about this will be different. We’re so proud to be working with the Levitt Pavilion, which up until recently didn’t really bring electronic acts to its stage. For many, this will be their first time attending something at Levitt. Musically, there aren’t any other experiences in Colorado that focus so specifically on this style of music. You can find it occasionally at a one-off concert, but this is the first time that you’ll be able to experience a full day of chill, genre-blending, live-performed vibey electronic music.

Finally, we have a narrative that’s fused deeply into all aspects of High Ground. We used the spirits of animals native to Colorado to tell a story of powerful story of rebirth, togetherness, and collective positivity to beckon a greater world for ourselves. We hope this is the most beautiful music festival you’ve ever attended.

“Do What You F*cking Love”

Party Guru Press: There is a lot of uncertainty about events in the face of the COVID-19 Delta Variant. What safety measures do you have in place?

Noah Levinson: We will follow local, state, and federal municipality guidelines, as well as Levitt Pavilion & industry standards to protect our attendees, artists, staff, and everyone else on-site. With the recent full FDA approval of the Pfizer vaccine, we strongly encourage attendees to get vaccinated and stay masked so that our community as a whole can continue to move in a positive direction.

Party Guru Press: What do you hope for the future of High Ground? Does this event have the potential to turn into a multi-day festival eventually?

Noah Levinson: Eventually, I think High Ground could totally become a multi-day music & arts festival… maybe even with camping? But at the same time, it’s most important to us to grow steadily and cultivate a strong community of Revelers. High Ground is special, and we don’t want to make massive leaps at the risk of losing the aspects that make us special. I envision that someday, High Ground will expand beyond electronic to include some elements of psychedelic rock and hip-hop (which we’ve sprinkled in gently this year).

Party Guru Press: Would you like to give any words of advice, or motto, to encourage others to remember as 2021 comes to a close?

Noah Levinson: I don’t mean to sound cliche, but do what you fucking love. I have so many friends that complain about their 9-5 jobs, and I’m like “just do what you love” and they don’t seem to understand how a little leap of faith can turn your passion into your career. Take what you love, combine it with the things you’re good at, and DO IT.

Words Of Gratitude From A Fellow Party Guru

Party Guru Press: Is there anything else that you’d like mentioned that hasn’t yet been discussed? 

Noah Levinson: My mom is my business partner. GANG GANG. But in all seriousness, Jobi Halper is so insanely smart and creative, and as a lifelong music lover with 25+ years of legal and business experience, she’s the best partner I could ask for and I wouldn’t be able to produce this festival without her.

Party Guru Press: Final question, would you consider yourself a Party Guru?

Noah Levinson: I’m a fucking weirdo who revels in the face of live music. There are certain forms of energy that exist only within live music, and more than anything, I love creating these environments for people to experience something profound. I am a party guru.

Until October…

After getting to learn all about the event from Noah Levinson himself, we cannot wait for October. High Ground Music & Arts Experience is an innovative, unique event that celebrates music, art, and colorful Colorado. A strong community of Revelers is already forming, ecstatic about what’s to come.

If you want to experience this brand new event first hand, there is still plenty of time to purchase tickets for you and your friends. Click here to secure your general admission and VIP tickets. We’ll see you at Levitt Pavilion!
