PICK OF THE WEEK: Miguel Migs – Friday, May 4th – The Shelter, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: Currently Miguel Migs is touring in support of his recently released album Those Things that he put out in March on his own Salted Music label. The album which he says is “electronic music inspired by old soul, funk, reggae and hip-hop,” has a very deep, organic sound that throbs with sensuality and is sure to churn the dance floor into a sweaty cauldron of bodies.

When he comes to Denver, Migs will be bringing with him a live vocalist. A longtime collaborator with Migs and talent in her own right, Lisa Shaw features prominently on the album adding vocals to 3 of the records 13 tracks. “The gigs will be mostly DJ oriented but I am brining Lisa along to add a live element to the event that satisfies the audiences’ desire to see some sort of performance,” Migs said.

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 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!
