DNC Music Cheat Sheet

Update (8/25): Just got the drop on a late night party hosted by MySpace at Mile High Station featuring Nelly. Hold on. Before you start Googling Mile High Station, you should know that this event, a salute to the screen actor's guild, is another invite-only shindig.

Update (8/22): Welp, looks like the rumors were true. Flobots and the Railbenders are indeed performing at the DNC Media Party at Elitch's. The "as-yet-to-be-determined act" mentioned below: Debajo Del Agua. Kanye West is reportedly slated to perform on Tuesday night at a function sponsored by the One campaign and the RIAA at the Exdo Events Center. Oh, and, finally, this isn't necessarily event related, but it's still pretty cool: Just found out Bun B will be in Denver, live blogging for MTV and assisting BET with voter registration.

Update (8/21): Okkerville River, MURS and Jill Sobule have been added to Monday night's Cinemocracy bill at Red Rocks. We've also received word from the Boulder Theater that Public Enemy's show has been moved to Wednesday night. That's according to promoter, Mad Society Project, whose reportedly hashing out details with the band. Both daily fishwraps, however, are reporting that PE will be a no show next week altogether (straight from the lips of Chuck D. himself, evidently), including Tuesday's performance at Civic Center. Stay tuned. We'll post more details as they become available.

In this week's issue, we put together a partial list of DNC-related events. After the jump, we've compiled a more comprehensive rundown of what's going down next week. Keep checking back as we'll be updating this space continually with any new information or events. -- Dave Herrera
