Lord of Word and the Disciples of Bass, Sunday, September 17, at the Denver University athletic fields, is far from the only act to appear at the second annual Rocky Mountain Music Association Musicfest; the bill also includes Chaos Theory, the AUTONO, Jux County, Avatar, the Hillbilly Hellcats and twelve other Colorado acts. But the Lord and his apostles are something special--arguably the finest live act in the state right now, regardless of musical style. A lot of us are absolutely dumbfounded that a major label hasn't yet snapped up this sonic amalgam of funk, hip-hop, rock and just about everything else. But rather than bemoaning the lack of justice in the music industry (talk about a waste of energy), why not celebrate the fact that these guys are still here--and still damn good?
