Fantasia 2011 at Rhino, Thee Goochi Boiz at Brass Tree and Fingers of the Sun at hi-dive
With so many great shows happening on Saturday night, it was virtually impossible to stay in one place. Luckily, Denver's geography makes it fairly easy to maneuver between venues in a short amount of time, so we attempted to catch various bands and performances throughout out the evening, making stops at Rhinoceropolis, the Brass Tree house and the hi-dive for three diverse and equally awesome shows.
First stop was Fantasia 2011 at Rhinoceropolis--for a multi-room, audio and visual conglomeration of music, imagery, and food. Yes, even a tree covered in doughnuts made an appearance, amid projections by Milton Melvin Croissaint III and music from Voices Of, Alphabets and more.
Next we headed to a house show at Brass Tree, where we caught Thee Goochi Boiz for a wild set in the tiny, checkered tile room.
We finished the evening at the hi-dive, where Fingers of the Sun played a gorgeous, hour-plus long set of tracks from its self-titled debut.It was the perfect dreamy end to a night of awesome shows in Denver.
