Tyler Jacobson and Mile High Soul Club opening for Lenny Kravitz at Buell Theatre on 2/10/12

Hey friends – I just wanted to update you and let you know that I’m going to be opening for Lenny Kravitz (of Lenny Kravitz fame) tomorrow night along with the rest of Mile High Soul Club at the Temple Buell Theatre (the Carnegie Hall of Denver). We will be spinning some soul & funk tracks that will flip your wig. We will be wearing suits. You can purchase tickets for the show here.

If you have more patience than money, you can catch our regular monthly Mile High Soul Club (America’s Biggest Soul Night) on Friday 2/17 at The Meadowlark. There’s no cover and management has added another bar to accommodate the souls who came for the soul.

City Glow at Double Daughters Tomorrow Night

Tomorrow night, 1/28/2011, DJ Rucker and myself, DJ Lung, will be manning the decks for the first time at the legendary Mario’s Double Daughter’s Salotto as we restart our City Glow night and once again bring those beautiful sounds for happening people with impeccable tastes to Denver. If you like IDM, nu-gaze, electronic, downtempo, ambient pop, chillwave, and other grooved out atmospheres with head-nodding beats, City Glow is your Mecca of cool.

Tyler DJs the Shag! Reunion this Thursday at Beauty Bar

Ah Beauty Bar - so we meet again. This Thursday, December 23rd – I (along with DJ Quid) will be guest DJing with Tim Shady & David Watts of one of Denver’s best nights of the past, Shag! – at it’s original location. Yes, before Lipgloss and when the Snake Pit wasn’t a drug infested shit hole – there was Shag! – an oasis of great music in a city of mediocrity. If you love Brit-Pop, Baggy, Shoegaze and Denver, then you know what a monumental line up this is – few additions could make it any better. Have a drink and come dance like Bez to a few decades of sounds from our brothers and sisters across the pond.   No Cover, 21+ required.

After this… no more DJing in 2010. Can you stand it?!

Tyler is DJing at Beauty Bar Tomorrow night

Tomorrow night, 12/15/2010, I will be DJing with my  Lipgloss partner and co-founder, Boyhollow and Beauty Bar’s Mike Disco for a new (potentially monthly) night called Creep. If you used to come to Lipgloss and you miss a solidly indie dance night with an emphasis on indie and not dance, then you’ll want to be at the Beauty Bar tomorrow night. No Cover. 21+. If you miss this, you can catch me next Thursday for the Shag reunion…. but don’t miss this. I’m making sure I provide 2 unique products for the next couple of gigs.

This will be the first time in a while that Boyhollow and I have shared the decks  – has it been since I left Lipgloss in 2009? It’ll be a gas. I guarantee it or we will refund you the cover charge!

Tyler DJs the Aloe Blacc show tonight with Dogboy

Hey Mile High Soul Club fans, I’m DJing some soul tonight with my good friend and co-MHSC found, Dogboy, tonight at the Aloe Blacc show at City Hall (click here for details). But that’s not all, for the $10 cover price, you’ll also get performances by Maya Jupiter, Air Dubai and The Foodchain. I played Aloe Blacc‘s cover of the Velvet Underground’s Femme Fatale on Episiode 81, but if you need some more Aloe Blacc, click play on the video below and have a listen to “I Need A Dollar”.

The Drums don't surf Denver

The Drums: Bluebird Theater, Denver 10/10/10

The Drums don't surf Denver

How lame is the city of Denver? A cursory look at the hipsters that showed up for Surfer Blood and ignored The Drums would answer that question. I passed on the opening band, and then later left after The Drums high energy set. Having seen Surfer Blood previously open for Art Brut in 2009 and completely forgotten I’d seen them played heavily into that decision. The omens weren”t good from the start. My ticket was not waiting for me. However, in what would be Denver’s only saving grace of the night, a young lady who witnessed my dilemma offered me a ticket. If you are reading this young lady, you are a Danger Radio Hero. I would like to return the favor: If you come to the Gathering of the Clouds for the Saturday event, I’ve got you covered (ask for Jake Ryan). This was welcome having already been fleeced by AEG for a prior ticket. AEG and venue operators had tacked on so many fees that they were literally only a few cents short of equalling the price of the 15 dollar ticket. For me, this is part of the problem. There’s so much control by promoters and venues that bands are shoved on stage promptly. You pay parasites and there’s no buzz built. Lord knows that there was little buzz when Jonathan Pierce and the three other Drums took the stage. This could be understood if The Drums didn’t have incredible hit worthy singles that totally eclipse Surfer Blood in every way. The Drums proceeded to play a blinder. Obviously, they have managed to get through a current line-up change. A less obvious omission are backup singers that graced earlier Drums shows. The sound was tight. Highlights included; “Me and the Moon”, “Book of Stories”, “Submarine”, and “Forever and Ever Amen”. However, the crowd’s tepid reaction to a tight set was less than pleasing to The Drums. Thrice Jonathan reminded the crowd it was “Only Pop Music” and ok to let loose a little. While their disgust wasn’t obvious through their playing, it became very apparent when they passed on performing an encore. The encore would have been the classic “Let’s Go Surfing”. Thanks a lot Denver. My guess is that they’ll skip our fair city next go around.
