What
Final Friday is a conscious collaboration of community resources that occurs on the last Friday of the month(s); May through August. Participating businesses, community arenas, and a variety of venues open their doors to musicians, bands, and performers to emphasize the real love of Denver – MUSIC and COMMUNITY. On Final Friday the River North Art District is transformed into an open sourced marketplace atmosphere offering local food, goods, and live music. This free-flowing format allows community members to create a raw level of exchange, and allows consumers to interact directly with the local resources of entertainment, goods and services.

 Where
This music and arts festival provides attendees with an intimate opportunity to enjoy activations starting around North Walnut and Blake streets and throughout the River North Art District, Denver Colorado. Each Final Friday hosts up to 25 bands on three main outdoor stages, and includes dozens of participating neighborhood venues, who individually host performances within their own establishments – all in one evening of programming. Each venue/stage will boast exciting and relevant local talent with genres ranging from Alternative, Punk and Rock to Hip Hop, Electronic and many fusion sounds. These venues are amongst the neighborhood’s existing art galleries, bars, design shops, retail, restaurants and offices.

Knew Conscious Presents
ROSSONIAN “LATE KIDS”
A ROOFTOP CONCERT
with Joseph Lamar, Church Fire, and CRL CRRLL

Saturday July 18th, from 8-???pm
Event takes place on 27th St. between Walnut St. & Larmier St.
This event is FREE and open to the public

We here at Rossonian are giving a new name to us “kids,” and all the other people born in the early half of the millennial generation. We’re calling these tech babies, the “Late Kids,” which just so happens to be the name of our newest EP. These “Late Kids” are those who have grown up alongside the Internet, born with a cell phone in our hands, and mastered Nintendo 64 from the first star acquired in Super Mario 64. We’re the first generation of its kind to have been raised with content and information seemingly shoved into our every orifice from all directions. Needless to say, us “Late Kids” are well aware of our worldly insignificance but have simultaneously been told by mommy and daddy that we’re someone so very, very special. We know that we’re but one mere grain of sand in the increasingly flooding beach of Denver music, but we truly believe this record is something special. And so do our mothers.

So in honor of all this, we’ve decided to hold a rooftop extravaganza in celebration of the new, “Late Kids” record. We’ll be shutting down 27th street between Larimer and Walnut as we play atop the Knew Conscious Gallery at 2700 Walnut. We’ve also called on some of our favorite local electronic music steamrollers such as Church Fire and Joseph Lamar (one more act is TBA) to join us. There will be performances on the roof as well as inside the gallery throughout the evening.

The show’s free, and we’ll have plenty of “refreshments” available for donation. While the record will remain unreleased, it will be exclusively available at the show for purchase in CD and download format. This show is an opportunity for Denverites to get the music first before it is released into the world.

WHO: Rossonian, Joseph Lamar, Church Fire, TBA
WHAT: Rooftop Celebration of Rossonian’s Super Special New Record “Late Kids”
WHERE: Knew Conscious Gallery 2700 Walnut Street Denver, CO
WHEN: 7.18.2015
HOW (MUCH): FREE! Refreshments will be available with donation

—————————————————————————————–

As always MegaFauna retail at 3102 Blake Street, Denver Colorado, will be open to the public during business hours Tuesday – Saturday 10am to 8pm and Sunday 10am to 6pm.

Thank you for continuing to support art, apparel and local creativity at MegaFauna.

Skate Deck Art Show Closing Reception -First Friday June 5th

The ending of The Truly Rejected & MegaFauna Skate Deck Art Show is the beginning of an opportunity to save a life. First Friday, June 5th brings to close the amazing artwork from over 30 Colorado artists whom have contributed a broad range of artistically and uniquely styled skateboard decks in support of the youth support programs in Native and non-native communities. Too many times the community at large has overlooked the challenges in education and positive-affirmation activities for today’s youth, so we in the Colorado art community have taken opportunity with this skate deck show to expressly pronounce not only these challenges, but solutions with socially justifiable programs.

Over the past 4 weeks we have been blessed with the beginning of a new relationship and partner with Stronghold Society. Stronghold Society is a Colorado based non-profit dedicated to instilling hope to youth and supporting youth movements through Live Life Call To Action Campaigns. (http://www.strongholdsociety.org/ )

ONEGATHERING-2015

Partnering with Truly Rejected Magazine facilitated the partnership with Stronghold Society and a diverse group of artists which opened up limitless possibilities in both size, scale and scope of the artwork contributed for this consciously programmed event.

First Friday June 5th opens up a last call to the community to actively engage the artwork and cause supported by 30+ local artists. Denver’s Westword covered the opening event and the impressive list of artists who participated.
