Don’t make the mistake of thinking the Re-Evolution of Mind Body Spirit Artwalk Afterparty at GuildWerks will be a typical wine-sipping, art-discussing, post-First Friday bash, because there’s much more to it than that. First and foremost, Re-Evolution is a fundraiser to help local tribal-rock-electro-dance-hip-hop-insanity band INTI mix and master its third album. “The first album, we wrote when we filled our van with drum kits and basses and amplifiers and drove all over Latin America, playing shows,” explains Teresita Hinojosa, one of INTI’s two female vocalists. “And the second one we wrote in Five Points when all the demonstrations were going on during the 2008 election year and the Democratic National Convention.”
The third album is nothing like the first two, she notes: “It’s very introspective and soulful, and there’s a lot more melodic interplay. It’s a really personal, introspective experience of the urban reality here in Denver.” And INTI has come up with a fundraising party to match: The evening will kick off at 9 p.m. with a neurosculpting lecture by Lisa Wimberger; there will also be a chai mate bar hosted by Tribal Visions Festival, masks and clothing by ArtsMyths and Root Structure, paintings by Raoul Desoto, and performances by ethereal vocalist Serephine, DJ Ether and guests from the Lunar Fire Collective.
In other words: Dancing, dancing and more dancing, with some meditation and eye candy thrown in for good measure. It all goes down at GuildWerks, 3821 Steele Street; admission is $5. For details, go to www.reverbnation.com/inti.
