The Art Of Records II

Friday, 5/3 -> The Art Of Records Public Microphone Tee Drop + Denver Hip Hop Congress Fundraiser + MCA/Beastie Boys Tribute + Food by the Cluck Truck at the Meadowlark…TiredPirate x The Solution x Family Affair on the limited tees…

FRIDAY, 5/3 -> Don’t miss an extra special edition of The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St) as we team up with TiredPirate & Family Affair for our first limited edition Art Of Records tee (!!!!!), right on time to commemorate the one year passing of rap legend MCA of the Beastie Boys.  We’re taking TiredPirate’s fantastic Ill Communication-inspired piece from The Art Of Records, flipping into a fresh t-shirt, then releasing at The Solution while we go heavy on the Beastie Boys to celebrate the life of MCA and the music of the Beastie Boys (plus a lot of the top quality hip hop we normally rock).  To make things even better, proceeds from the sale of the tee are going to a Colorado scene fixture, the Denver chapter of national nonprofit Hip Hop Congress.

On top of the tees, Hip Hop Congress will be running a raffle with a ridiculous lineup of prizes to raise money for Summer’s annual Spirit Of Hip Hop Park Jam, including great stuff from the likes of Rawh Brand, Xencs L. Wing, TiredPirate, Joseph Martinez, DJ Matt Cassidy & more, plus of course, a few of our limited Public Microphone tees.  We’ll be rocking the best in hip hop & a whole lot more on the turntables, The Cluck Truck will be parked out front with delicious food (check their menu HERE, it look like a perfect compliment to a good beer or post party wrap up meal) and all shall be right in the Denver for the night.

Complimentary photo booth / Beautiful patio / $5 Red Bull & Svedka / 21+ / No cover until 11 / Only $5 after / “Our town’s longest running & most revered hip hop night…A testament to quality” – Westword / More info on the party on Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr

Friday, 3/29 -> The Art of Records II Closing Party at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark…Don’t miss your last chance to check out the acclaimed art show!

FRIDAY, 3/29 -> It breaks our hearts to say it, but The Art Of Records II’s run at the Meadowlark will be wrapping up shortly, but not before we take one last Friday night at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez to celebrate the amazing art by an all-star lineup of Denver artists.  The show, co-curated by Dunn the Signtologist and DJ Low Key, features some of the city’s top artists flipping classic hip hop albums covers in all sorts of fantastic ways and some of the pieces have already sold, so this will be your last chance to check this great collection of art.  Here’s two top notch recaps of the show’s ridiculous opening night and a little sample of what the show looks like (through the lens of Terrence Duncan), plus more info on the concept. Delicious food by Year Of The Snake/21+/No cover until 11/Only $5 after/2701 Larimer St.

.:The Art Of Record II Opening Recap via Westword.com & Ken Hamblin:.

About The Art Of Records II: Over the last few decades album art has gone from a 12” canvases to a 2” screens, and that’s usually the best-case scenario for the often incredible art that accompanies music releases.  Landmark albums like A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory, Nas’s Illmatic and De La Soul is Dead have instantly recognizable covers that are embedded in music and art lovers’ psyches forever, but the 12” as a canvas has become a rarity in the public eye.  Everyone from music and art lovers to average people on the street still connect to both the album art and 12” format, yet we rarely take the time to honor the truly great ones.  The Art Of Records is an exhibit that aims to do just that; focusing on the legacy of exceptional art accompanying exceptional music and the idea of introducing both to a new generation.

The Art Of Records combines art, music and tradition to celebrate and honor the rich history and mystique of record cover art, 12″ vinyl and the artists that create it (both musically and graphically). Curated by Dunn the Signtologist and DJ Low Key, the exhibit features a series of classic 12″ album and single covers re-imagined and recreated by top artists in Denver.  The 12” covers will also be on display and the concept comes full circle with DJ Low Key playing an all vinyl set of the featured records as the night’s soundtrack.

Stacy Sturdy

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
