Weekend Dance Card: BoomTut, Robag Wruhme and Neon Knights -- and that's just Friday
Tonight's BoomTut party at Apex Movement in Boulder is going to be off the hook. This Whomp Truck fundraiser -- funds will help bring AudioPixel, Basscouch and the Whomp Truck to Apogaea -- is in a parkour studio, and the trampoline, jungle gym and parkour equipment will be open for business. There are also two party-bus options, and the lineup features DMTree, Milkman, Noah Deep, Pillow Fight, Just Ben and Citrus, and Coult 45 and Ishe. Oh, and there will be bacon tacos. (10 p.m., 18+, $10, donation bar -- bring your own cup) You know that's not all. Keep reading for the rest of the weekend's lineup:
