FRIDAY, 5/29 -> As we close out a ridiculously fun month of May, we wanted to remind you to check out Meeg Conroy’s fantastic art exhibition before it comes down in a few days. A lot of the pieces have been sold, but there are still some great pieces to be had at reasonable prices. Here’s another taste (which we’re pretty sure is sold, don’t miss your last chance to see it in person!)…
On top of the top notch art, we’ve got Mikey Fresh on the patio for a pop-up shop with choice records, good woods, gear and more and we’re celebrating friend of the party Aleasha Bram’s birthday! Even on a night full of happenings, the most important part of the party is the music, so be prepared to dance because DJ Low Key & DJ Lazy Eyez will be rocking all the best in hip hop and more while our official photographer Knower Of The Ledge catches it on film, in classic Solution tradition!!! 9pm / 21+ / No cover until 11, only $5 after / 2701 Larimer Street.
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:
Dunn The Signtologist
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.
