How Textures at Mutiny Builds New Audiences for Denver's Strangest Music

Wesley Davis has long been hosting his Textures series, with its focus on live ambient music. A couple of years ago, he used to host Textures in the basement of Gypsy House Café, but at the series's new home, Mutiny Information Cafe, he doesn't have to bring in a P.A., and on Sundays there is plenty of nearby parking. There are also more people who might walk by and take an interest on the unusual sounds coming out of the place -- something that never would have happened in the basement of a coffee shop on 13th and Marion.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
