Inspired by Denver's thriving blues scene, the Mile High Blues Society has established the Denver Blues Club. It's precisely what it sounds like: a group of kindred music fans getting together to go check out the best blues this town has to offer. Tomorrow night, everybody's making their way down to Ziggie's to check out Dan Treanor's Afrosippi Band featuring Erica Brown. So far there's 84 people signed up on the DBC Meet Up page.
