The Chain Gang Of 1974 Remix Contest & New Album

There is officially less than one week left until the release of The Chain Gang of 1974‘s new record Wayward Fire! In celebration of the release, they will be giving away a copy each day. Check out the bands Facebook page for daily posts on how to win.  All the winners will be overnighted a copy on Monday, so you’ll have it on release day.

Secondly, there is about one week left until the Undercover Remix Contest ends. There’s been an awesome response so far, and it’s really interesting to hear how the track was interpreted.  If you’ve already downloaded stems, don’t forget to submit your remix by 6/21. If you haven’t gotten your stems yet, download them here.

At the very least, make sure to go check all the remixes submitted so far, and vote for your favorite.

In other news, Chain Gang of 1974 was just added to the Cibo Matto tour, and an August run with Tapes N’ Tapes! Click here for all dates.


Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
