Friday, 5/1 -> First Friday featuring the art of Meeg Conroy at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez! Works from one of Denver’s finest artists, the best in hip hop & lots more at The Meadowlark!!!

FRIDAY, 5/1 -> It’s First Friday time again, and we’re looking forward to featuring the amazing, impossibly detailed works of Denver artist Meeg Conroy for the month of May at The Meadowlark and to kick it off we’ll be celebrating things at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez!!! Meeg’s been a longtime friend of the party and we’ve been big fans of her work for a while, you’ve probably even seen her work already if you come to the party – her Lupe Fiasco Food & Liquor pieces (pictured below) from The Art Of Records IV show we threw earlier this year were unbelievably dope and garnered rave reviews from everyone!

On top of the fantastic artwork, we’ll have Solution photographer Armando Geneyro aka Knower Of The Ledge handling party photos and of course, we’ll be rocking all the best in hip hop and a whole lot more at The Solution! 21+/Music at 9pm/No cover until 11pm/Only $5 after/2701 Larimer Street.

Friday, 2/6 at 7pm -> The Solution’s 8 Year Anniversary Party + The Art Of Records IV:4 Decades Of Classics opening! DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez & guest Sounds Supreme, classic album artwork reimagined by 15 of Denver’s best artists, live screenprinting by Filthe, Armando & Blake’s birthdays, live performances from CRL CRRLL and Yonnas of BLKHRTS, free Solution buttons, ZenOne & more at The Meadowlark!!! #TheSolution8…

FRIDAY, 2/6 at 7pm -> 8 years. Wow. Seems like just yesterday that me & Sounds Supreme started The Solution with no grand plans, just an idea to make the kind of party we wanted to go to and have doing it. At the time, we didn’t know quite what that was, but we knew we were tired of playing the same top 40 records for whatever crowd happened to walk into the club/bar that offered us the most money on a Friday night. The Solution wasn’t the first time either of us tried to start our own party, but somehow we were able to use everything we had learned from previous attempts to promote our own events, combine that with a large amount of youthful determination and somehow get the party of to a good enough start to ride through the initial struggle that starting anything different and unique can be.

Over the last 8 years, we’ve bounced around venues, Sounds Supreme fell back from weekly duties and Lazy Eyez joined the party, we added our official photographer Knower Of The Ledge, we’ve thrown a bunch of offshoot events and done of lot of pretty damn cool stuff, that frankly, I wouldn’t have ever considered a possibility when our little party started. All the changes and particularly the success we’ve had since partnering up with The Meadowlark (who we can’t praise enough) have us hungrier than ever and excited about how far we can take the party. That’s led us to film a video for CRL CRRLL’s “Cheers”, launch a small Solution Records label to release music we believe in and constantly strive to upgrade everything we can about the party. Hopefully you’ll dig some of the new projects we work on as we try to figure out what exactly the next level is and take the party there.

If you follow us or come out regularly, I’m sure you’ve noticed that we praise and shout out our crowd constantly. We know that there are DJs trying to throw cool niche parties like The Solution all over the world that don’t pan out, often times because there’s not a musically inclined, open-minded crowd coming out to help get the party off the ground, and we know that we could very easily be in the same boat without your love and support, so on that note, let me thank you on behalf of the whole crew for an INCREDIBLE 8 years and cheers to many, many more Denver!!! – DJ Low Key

So anyway, let’s talk 2015 and all the great stuff we have lined up to celebrate our 8 year anniversary! On an all month long note, we’re excited to bring together an all-star lineup of Denver favorites for The Art Of Records IV:4 Decades Of Classics, the latest in our ongoing art show series based around reimaginations of classic album art and the vinyl records the sound and art are immortalized on. 2/6/15 is the show’s opening party and to make sure there’s ample time for everyone to take in the artwork before things get too crazy, we’re going to be starting the party early, at 7pm, for First Friday fun. Check out the fantastic lineup of artists we have contributing to the show:

Joseph Martinez
Karma Leigh
Meeg Conroy
Thomas Evans
Jaime Molina
Michael Coriano
Tristan Minton
Patrick Hansen
Delton Demarest
Filthe
El Marsito
Dunn The Signtologist
Rawh
Dread
TiredPirate

On top of the beautiful surroundings, we’ll be welcoming party co-founder Sounds Supreme out to join weekly residents DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables for what’s sure to be some inspired music. We’re excited to start getting Sounds Supreme back involved in the party with monthly guest spots, so stay tuned for more from him. We’ll also be celebrating the birthdays of our two favorite photographers, official Solution photographer Knower Of The Ledge aka Armando Geneyro and his #TheyShootn associate Blake Jackson. Both of these guys have taken a ton of great photos of the party & probably you if you’re a party regular, so make sure to wish them the best and grab them a birthday drink or two.

As if that wasn’t enough, Filthe is going to bless us with live ‘bring your own shirt’ screenprinting once again!!! Bring a tee, sweatshirt, hoodie, sweatpants, etc and he’ll customize it into fresh new Solution gear, on us!!! Don’t have a shirt to bring in? Don’t worry, we’ll have some available for sale too! Check out the picture above from last time around (when he helped us retire our previous logo) for a taste. We also had to bring in two longtime friends of the party to do some quick, mid-party performances of their party anthems. CRL CRRLL will be performing “Cheers”, party favorite and the first single from the upcoming Solution Tape #2 and Yonnas from BLKHRTS will be performing “Porties”, their super dope club anthem from last year. We’ll also have some nice new Solution buttons, hot off the press, as well as party photos by Knower Of The Ledge & ZenOne. Whew. That was a lot. Gonna be a classic night, don’t miss it!!! Things kick off at 7pm, no cover until 11pm & just $5 after. 2701 Larimer Street.

Friday, 11/7 -> First Friday: Made You Look, a #TheyShootn 35mm photo exhibition by Knower Of The Ledge at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez! Plus, we’re celebrating Adrian & DJ DSRN’s birthdays, guest photographer Blake Jackson, ZenOne & more at The Meadowlark!!!

FRIDAY, 11/7 -> After celebrating his one year anniversary as party photographer last Friday, we’re extra excited to feature the photography of our own Knower Of The Ledge aka Armando Geneyro for First Friday, 11/7 at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez!!! As you might know, his photos have been making our Instagram & Facebook both looks great for the last year, while also improving the average party goers profile pics by at least 200%, on top of shooting a lot of INCREDIBLE pictures at his own Instagram page at @KnowerOfTheLedge (go follow him now!!!). We’ll be featuring Armando’s 35mm photography exhibition throughout November, and in case your walls are less that immaculately decorated, you defnitely want to look into buying one before they all sell out (one sold before the show even went up!).

As if that wasn’t enough, we’ll be celebrating the birthday of two Solution favorites and longterm friends of the party; Adrian and Brandon Carter aka DJ DSRN’s birthdays! On top of that, special guest photographer Blake Jackson will be joining us at The Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St) and documenting all the happy faces and beautiful people, ZenOne will be in the building and as always, DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez will be on the turntables, rocking all the best in hip hop and a whole lot more for your dancing pleasure! 21+ / 9pm / No cover until 11pm, only $5 after.

P.S. The patio heaters are on and ready for Fall, so we shouldn’t miss a beat as the seasons change!!!

The Solution named “Best Club Night Return” in Westword 2013 Best Of Denver…



At this point, the Solution is well on its way to becoming a Denver institution. But it isn't just our town's longest-running and most revered hip-hop night — it's also a testament to quality and resilience. Despite having moved virtually all over town since it was founded half a dozen years ago by DJs Low Key and Sounds Supreme, the Solution continues to draw a faithful crowd wherever — and however — it goes. Even after the Solution took a hiatus from weekly parties, the Solution crew continued to offer showcases featuring a parade of the best local MCs and producers, along with lauded acts from elsewhere. And last month, when the Solution returned to a weekly format at its new home at the Meadowlark, all was right in the cosmos again. - Westword
