For this week's installment of the Hot Congress residency at Meadowlark, the group is bringing out the big guns, with Hindershot being joined by Vitamins, Kissing Party, and Luke Hunter James-Erickson.
For the entire month of November, the collective and record label has handpicked each weekly bill, pulling from their own ranks, along with other local acts in the music community.
Hot Congress came together a handful of years ago as a way for some Denver friends in various bands (Achille Lauro and Action Packed Thrill Ride among them) to support each other in a larger way -- by playing shows together, cross-promoting events, and releasing records.
Not sure if Hot Congress is your bag? Every Thursday during the month of November, you can catch a different line-up of Hot Congress-approved bands for just $7. This show is 21 and up, show starts at 9 p.m.
