Best Promoter Turned Musician Denver 2010 - Matt Fecher

Ever since he moved here from Indiana a few years ago, Matt Fecher has demonstrated that he possesses exceptional sensibilities. Say what you will about Fecher — he strikes some folks as a little too cool for school — the guy definitely has a great set of ears. Witness his knack for pulling in stars of tomorrow for the Monolith Festival, which he co-curates with Josh Baker: Ghostland Observatory? Check. Phoenix? Check. Chromeo? Girl Talk? The Cool Kids? Hood Internet? Check, check, check and mate. Thing is, having admirable tastes as a music fan doesn't necessarily translate to making good music. When Fecher first tried his hand at deejaying under the name Hot to Death, a few high-profile gigs drew the scrutiny of cynics, who assumed he'd only landed the slots because of his stature as a promoter. And while that may have been true to some extent, Fecher has since proven himself worthy with both Animals at Risk — reworking tracks by the Swayback and The Pirate Signal — and, most recently, Honey & the Bear, a randy, tongue-firmly-in-cheek acoustic duo.

Guess you were unaware of the fact that he promoted the last Monolith on the backs of small local companies that HE FAILED TO PAY AND LEFT THEM HOLDING THE BAG!!!!!

What a fucking joke. I literally spit my drink onto my computer screen after seeing this. This guy is Denver's biggest douchebag and ass kisser. Did he perform or promote for free (while undercutting professional DJ's, promoters and bands) at a Westword event to get this award? Maybe it was the ass kissing or name dropping. Everything about this guy is a fail including Monolith.

Thanks for thinking of me, guys. Though, I really don't even deserve a mention. I'm just playing some music for fun. Hopefully, someday, I hope to get better at it... As always, thanks for listening.

Thanks guys. Though, I really don't deserve a mention. I do enjoy playing music for fun, and, maybe someday I'll be better at it. As, always though, thanks for listening.
