Neil Ewing of Greencarpetedstairs: "It's not what you use, it's how you use it."

Greencarpetedstairs (due tonight at Rhinoceropolis) is the hip-hop/experimental electronic/IDM project of Neil Ewing. He was part of the loose cadre of students that attended Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in the first half of the last decade that were at the core of the scene around Rhinoceropolis, including Travis Egedy of Pictureplane and Harry C. Walters, among others -- the latter of whom was in the group of people that founded Rhinoceropolis.

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.
