Come out and celebrate the birthday of Denver music royalty! No matter what involvement you have in the Denver music scene, it’d be difficult not to run into Venus. She’s everywhere. Performing, listening, curating, and constantly uplifting and supporting the community. A taste-maker in every sense of the word.
For 11 years (!) she’s been the host of Jazz Odyssey on KUVO, constantly unveiling the dopest sounds from around the world. Aren’t we fortunate that she calls Denver home? She currently leads two bands What Young Men Do, and Super Distant Boyfriend. In recent years these groups have opened for the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Emily King and Gregory Porter.
For this night, it’s all about friends. She’ll be joined on stage by some of her closest collaborators, and we’ll be opening up the stage for a jam session a little later in the night so that anybody and everybody who knows Venus can help celebrate her existence through sound. Come groove, come get wild, it’s going to be a birthday to remember.
