13 Feb Double-Venue Hitter: MURS and Pimps of Joytime Take Over Cervantes’ on 2/16/18
When all of Cervantes’ is taken over by two great lineups, there are no losers here. This Friday, Cervantes’ is bringing a down-to-earth double header that has a little something for everyone.
The Other Side
In 2018, we’re all about getting back to a strong lyrical based hip hop foundation. Thank god for Murs.
His name is an acronym with multiple meanings we can stand behind, most notably “Make Underground Raw Shit” and “Make the Universe Recognize and Submit” — #channeling. Though he hails from Oakland, his sound is notoriously different as he chooses to inspire and provoke deep thinking rather than metaphorically fire shots.
He’s famous for his ability to spit mad bars, proven alone by his Guinness World Record awarded for more than 24 hours of non-stop rapping in 2015. If you like Hieroglyphics, Aesop Rock, or Atmosphere, you’ll be enamored by Murs.
He’ll be supported by local independent hip hop artists ItsEvi and ROOKE5, so come out and support the best of Denver’s underground hip hop scene!
Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 day of show — grab yours here.
Great name, even better music — Pimps of Joytime are bringing their funk n’ roll to Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom! The group hails from Brooklyn and New Orleans, so you know they’re gonna bring the soul jams.
If you’re a fan of New Mastersounds, Dumpstaphunk, or The Greyboy Allstars, you’ll love the Pimps. Just hear for yourself:
Pimps of Joytime will be joined by Toubab Krewe, an instrumental band with heavy African influences. Advance tickets are $22, available here.
See you at Cervantes’ for a mixed bag of a good time!
