Today's a pretty big day for Danielle Anderson. Not only is the YouTube darling featured on the front page of, well, YouTube (see the clip being touted after the jump), but today marks the release of her brand new record, Two Bedroom Apartment. Oh and she's celebrating by playing some of her songs at a little old place in the foothills. Red Rocks -- you might've heard of it? To that end, Anderson, better known by her nom de tune, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, is opening tonight's Film on the Rocks show for Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, themselves warming up for a screening of Raising Arizona.
Can't make it out to Red Rocks tonight? All good. Catch Danielle tomorrow night at Twist & Shout for a special in-store performance in advance of her official CD release party this Friday, July 9, at the Walnut Room, in which she'll be joined by Cody Crump and have a full band in tow; tickets for that show are $8 ($10 day of show) and on sale now. She'll also be on the air tomorrow on KRFC from noon to 1 p.m. for Live at Lunch.
