On Saturday, March 4th, we gathered at the Mercury Cafe for Denver Rocks the Vote. The evening began with a panel with mayoral candidate Ean Thomas Tafoya and a cannabis symposium. They brought awareness to local issues, as well as education on the medicinal benefits of cannabis.
The Beginning – Denver Rocks the Vote
After the panel and symposium, the Mercury opened upstairs, and the music began. Andy Babb and the Big Beautiful Band started the dance party. They brought such positive folk vibes that set the mood.
After a short intermission, A-Mac and the Height graced the upstairs stage. Their reggae and dub sound kept the crowd dancing. They even played some popular covers, including “Feel Good Inc.” by the Gorillaz.
Later On – Denver Rocks the Vote
While A-Mac and the Height were playing upstairs, Elyjah Tribe rocked the stage downstairs. With a soulful, funky sound, the vibes were just right for a late weekend night at a cafe. His smooth songs resonated through the main floor and gave people a radiant experience. After Elyjah Tribe, LatinSoul brought her suavemente vibe and perfectly wrapped up the evening downstairs.
Wrapping up the Night
Back upstairs, the psychedelic funk band The Buzz graced the stage to close the evening. They brought high-energy funk that kept the crowd and Mercury staff vibing!
The goal of this event was to raise funds for mayoral candidate Ean Thomas Tafoya in a way that brought the community together for awareness, education, and a little fun. It was an absolute success that had it all: education, activism, funk, soul and more!
