Kruza Kid: “On Halloween, the Mile High Sound Movement collective threw one of the first shows where the group actually booked the venue, promoted, etc. It was called Halloweeds and took place at the Rock N Roll Bar and Grill, which is now the Cheeba Hut on Champa Street. The show was in the basement, and the smell of mildew could not be masked with any amount of cannabis. I remember going upstairs to have a good entrance for my set, but I missed my announcement, so people just waited around for five minutes while I finished whatever I was smoking.
“I think this was the third time I had performed live in front of people at an actual venue. It was a special night — the debut of Project Aspect’s live set and one of the first times we’d gotten together as the Mile High Sound Movement to put together a fun night for our people. Looking back, I’m honored to still be a positive part of this thriving, growing and learning Denver musical community, and plan to be for the rest of my life.”
