100 Colorado Creatives: Kurt Bauer

#43: Kurt Bauer

If you're an ambient/experimental/folk/worldbeat/noise/improvisatory/uncategorizable musician in Denver, you know it's not easy to get noticed. But Kurt Bauer is on your side: Bauer -- who's spent years in Denver's underground music scene -- galvanizes a small but serious community of like-minded creatives by providing them with a forum for both live and recorded performance as the dynamo (recording engineer, promoter, player and poster-maker) behind the local label Bangsnap Records.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
