Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Looks like the Rouge's red letter day is continuing. From kicking off the summer performing at Red Rocks to making its way up to headlining status, the band is now enjoying a healthy buzz generated by the inherent sex appeal of its shirtless, leather vested frontman its passionate live shows and Heat and Light, the outfit's excellent new record, issued this past spring on Morning After Records. And the buzz, it seems, is beginning to pay off: Tonight the act is playing a show at the Marquis (with the Still City, Snake Rattle Rattle Snake and Churchill) for some unnamed label honchos, who are reportedly parachuting in just give the outfit another looksee. And if that weren't enough, the Rouge holds the distinction of being one of the acts chosen to create a song for Timbaland's Beaterator, a new PSP game created by Rockstar Games that allows players to craft their own music from a bank of loops and pre-recorded music. The band submitted a remixed version of its song "Six Shooter." Check it out after the jump, along with a trailer for the game.
