While earlier rumors of DJ Z-Trip being in town at the end of January proved to be just that, it turns out that he will be in town this month after all -- just not at Red Rocks. Instead, he'll be performing at City Hall for the final night of partying for Terminal Kings, an art project sponsored by Denver International Airport and the University of Denver. There's an extensive list of music and art building up to the finale. Page down for full details.
Terminal Kings opens its doors to the public on Thursday, January 12, and runs through Saturday, January 21, for live art viewing, MC battles, b-boy battles and live music. The best part? Once the festivities get started, it's free and open to the public from 2 to 7 p.m. Tickets to each evening's festivities range from $8-$25 (more info at TerminalKings.com and CoClubs.com). Check out the full performance lineup below; for a complete rundown of all the events, battles, panel discussions with the artists and more, visit the Terminal Kings website.
