Twist & Shout Records
2508 East Colfax, Denver, CO
Purchase Mike Doughty’s new album Yes and Also Yes from Twist and Shout and get a wristband that guarantees first entry to the in-store performance plus a spot in the autograph line. The CD comes out Monday 8/29 and the LP will be out 9/13. They will start pre-selling the LP 8/29 so fans can get their wristbands early.
Singer-songwriter Mike Doughty made his way into our hearts back in the 90’s as the lead singer for Soul Coughing. Decades latter he has forged a successful career with his solo work. Doughty will perform a full show with his Band Fantastic later the same night just down the street at The Bluebird Theatre. Tickets for that show are $25 and are available here.
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 Jambase.com, 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!
