Chase away that case of the Mondays at New Music Mondays
, a weekly free-form dance party hosted by DJ Hot to Death, better known as Matt Fecher, co-founder of the Monolith Music Festival. Each week, Fecher brings in guest DJs from both the local and national scenes to play their favorite tunes, as well as throwing down a set or two himself and inviting the audience to take over and play whatever they bring along. You never know whos going to show up. Its really cool, the people that come out, he says. Sometimes I dont get to DJ at all, there are so many guest DJs. Its definitely a music lovers crowd, people who love music of all kinds. The music is really across the board. Its more of a free-for-all.
Past guest DJs have included members of Overcasters and Cat-a-tac. Tonights guests are DJ Ginger (Mommys Little Monster) and Westword
s own Eryc Eyl. The music and madness start at 9 p.m. and go until 1 a.m. at the Larimer Lounge, 2721 Larimer Street. Theres no cover for this 21-and-up event -- but dont forget to bring along some records or your iPod to get in on the fun. For more info, visit www.myspace.com/hottodeath
