The next two neighborhood block parties presented by the Denver Film Society will take place July 12th and August 9th from 5-9 p.m. atop the Lowenstein CulturePlex, 2510 E. Colfax, home to the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax, Tattered Cover and Twist & Shout.
RAISE THE ROOF #2 will showcase the winner of Denver Comic Con’s battle of the bands, Death of The Arcade, along with local favorites Fairchildren and Tom Hagerman, multi-instrumentalist with local genre-bending band, DeVotchKa, legendary Denver MC Sid Pink, will emcee the proceedings.
Food and drink will be available for purchase from area restaurants.
“Our first RAISE THE ROOF block party was an incredible evening of music, food, drink and the best view of downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains,” said said Ryan Oestreich, director of the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax. “We hosted 700 people – of all ages – and even a few dogs for what we believe is on its way to becoming a tradition for the FilmCenter’s neighbors and friends.” [Editor’s Note: Read our review of this event here]
