"Basically, we don't integrate our neighbors enough," McRyhew points out. "Joe [Annabi] from Yoda's House [Albuquerque] stayed with us recently, and we had a conversation about the amazing things happening in New Mexico right now, and how they are very much akin to Denver's 'amazing-ness.' Why not try to combine those things?"
Considering Santa Fe is just a mini-road trip from the Denver/Boulder area, the idea of locking creative communities together with weekend events seems like a simple concept -- yet it doesn't happen nearly enough.
McRyhew hopes shows like this will bring about a shift, and utilize the connections made to cities like Santa Fe through an alignment of artistic ethos. "It's a cool lineup that is pretty representational of where Denver's electronic/experimental scene is," McRyhew says. "I'm very excited to play down there. There is a unique energy in that city."
The show will also serve as an unofficial release party for Mystic Bummer's latest album, Cock Rock Bottom, out now on McRyhew and creative partner Kristi Schaefer's label, Laser Palace. To get an idea of what the Hideous Men/Laser Palace duo is up to as of late, check out brand new track, "Sirens":
