Wheelchair Sports Camp



Past Event

Location Info:

Ophelia's Electric Soapbox
1215 20th St.
Denver, CO  80202
In recent months, Westword has written widely about Kalyn Heffernan, Wheelchair Sports Camp’s MC, for her political activism: taking Denver City Councilman Albus Brooks to task, occupying Senator Cory Gardner’s office along with the disability-rights organizers in ADAPT and challenging venues for their lack of accessibility. What’s often lost in this coverage is how Heffernan and her drummer, Gregg Ziemba of Rubedo, and avant-garde jazz trumpeter extraordinaire Joshua Trinidad make up one of the most vibrant and skilled hip-hop groups working today, tackling issues from disability rights and queer identity to gentrification and immigration policy. Wheelchair Sports Camp will headline Ophelia’s with Rubedo, the latter coming fresh off a stunning album-release show at the Bluebird Theater. Expect a high-energy, genre-crossing evening with two of Denver’s best acts.
