After four years I’m finally sharing the first episode of the Queen City Sounds Podcast. Going with that name for now because it’s easy to remember in association with this site. This episode is focused on the Down in Denver festival which takes place Labor Day weekend 2021 September 4-6 at Larimer Lounge. For details and to buy tickets visit downindenver.com. It celebrates Denver music and includes musicians who have been in around the scene going back decades. It was organized by Lipgloss founder Michael Trundle, Kitty Vincent of rock band Zealot and Marie Litton from Spyderland. The audio is a bit rough around the edges due to recording environments and when possible I’ll try to have more clear audio captures in the future. But for now enjoy some conversations with various people in the local music scene including Josie Cool of An Antiquated Bluff, Megan Kelley of Married a Dead Man, Armando Garibay of Machu Linea (all three of which are performing at the festival) and Michael Trundle.
