Sixteen Candles: Are you about to turn sixteen, or do you know somebody who is? Then pay close attention to this next item: Evidently, the one and only KS-107.5 drive time mixmaster extraordinaire DJ Chonz is willing to get behind the decks for you or your loved one's sweet 16 bash. You read that right. (We know. We nearly choked on our ham sandwich when we caught wind of this news concerning our boy. We still think someone's pulling our leg.) Anyhow, don't know how much it's going to set you back to give your party a colossal goose by having the RadioBum kingpin on the ones and twos, but trust us, it's worth it, dawg. Chonz throws down like no other, and his calendar is undoubtedly filling up as we write this. Get at Jonny Shuman at Upfront Entertainment if you're interested.
Low End Theory: Received word over the weekend of a couple of notable lineup changes for two very admirable Denver bands, and both involves the lower frequencies. The first shift concerns A Shoreline Dream, one of the first bands confirmed to perform at next year's South By Southwest Festival. Longtime bassist Enoc Torraca has left the band for personal reasons and has been replaced by Adam Edwards, a formerly of Flyaway Minion and Mouth of the Architect. Likewise, Overcasters have parted ways with their original four-stringer Ed Marshall, who also left the band for personal reasons. His spot is being filled by bassist Matt Regan, who most recently played with Joy Subtraction and previously played upright bass as a member of Matson Jones.
Fight Club: Finally, Lords of Fuzz is filming a fight scene for its new video this Thursday, December 3, at the Lion's Lair. Folks looking to be immortalized on celluloid should make their way down to Colfax around 9 p.m. Brass knuckles not required.
