In lieu of live events, Knew Conscious — the Denver-based art gallery and social club that recently reopened only to be shut down, along with everything else, over COVID-19 — is launching its new weekly live-stream concert series, dubbed Alive From Knew Conscious, this weekend.
The series will be broadcast from the venue and streamed through its website and social-media platforms from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturdays, starting on May 16, with Eminence Ensemble and Mikey Thunder.
The objective behind the series is to give viewers as close to a live experience as possible without asking them to leave their homes; the club will be using a state-of-the-art light rig provided by City Boy Lasers and professional audio and video by Rich Hartranft.
