  • Meetup at Cafe 180 before heading to the Gothic Theater.
  • SCARE YOUR KIDS FOR HALLOWEEN INTO THINKING YOU’VE GONE BATTY BY INVITING THEM TO A HIP-HOP SHOW!

    Enjoy a wild night with the energetic beat and the culture of Hip-hop at this family-appropriate show featuring the best Hip-hop artists in Colorado!

    Hip-hop has emerged as one of the driving forces in music for the masses in our lifetime. Midwest Massacre from RiseUp Rekords is a dynamic performance suitable for people of all ages. The featured artists are ONENationEternal, Streetwise, Saint and my son, DJ HaVok.

    WARNING: WE STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU LEAVE THE SHOW AT THE 10:00 INTERMISSION. The performance following is NOT part of the RiseUp Rekords family-suitable Hip-hop performance and we understand it is raunchy and inappropriate for general audiences.  The performers from RiseUp Rekords plan to leave the premises when their part of the show has ended to disassociate themselves from the type of performance following theirs which they consider vulgar and inappropriate for their family audiences.

    The Technicalities:
    Purchase advance tickets from Judy at $10 each, a $2 discount.

    Meet at Cafe 180 at the corner of Broadway and Floyd in downtown Englewood at 6:00 (or earlier if you want -- see info on Café 180 below) to pick up tickets and grab a bite before the show. Then we'll walk the half block up to the Gothic (doors open at 7). Tickets will also be available on the Georgetown Beer & Brat train and by contacting Judy directly at[masked] or [masked].

    CAFE 180, recognizing the universal appetite for delicious, nourishing food and social connectedness, is dedicated to eliminating hunger and social barriers associated with food by feeding all people regardless of their ability to pay, in a dignified and respectful manner. At CAFE 180 the price is always right, because you choose it. Those who can pay for lunch sit alongside those who exchange an hour of service for their meal. Meal payment options include paying what you would typically pay; giving an hour of service in exchange for a meal; or “pay it forward” by paying what you would typically pay plus a bit more.

    The historic Gothic Theatre was the first movie theatre in Denver to show “talkies,” now turned music venue. Originally built in the 1920’s, the theatre’s grand art deco style provides an extraordinary and beautiful background. When renovated in 1998, the historic interior was kept as the venue was rebuilt from top to bottom and fitted to become a premier part of Colorado music.

    Hip-hop culture originated in New York’s black and Latino ghetto during the 1970’s. Its main components are rap (MC'ing), break-dance, graffiti, and street types of sports games. Hip-hop was isolated in the ghetto for years before spilling onto the streets of the white quarters and then to the masses - show-business, discos, cinema, etc. Since its evolution from the South Bronx, Hip-hop culture has spread to both urban and suburban communities throughout the world.

    Hip-hop music first emerged with contemporary disc jockeys creating rhythmic beats by looping small portions of songs with a percussive emphasis on two turntables. This was later accompanied by "rap" (rhythmic style of chanting usually presented in 16-bar measures) and beatboxing (a vocal technique providing percussive elements of music and various technical effects).  An original form of dancing and particular styles of dress arose among fans of this new music. These elements experienced considerable adaptation and development over the course of the history of the culture.

    Hip-hop is simultaneously a new and old phenomenon; the importance of “sampling” revolves around updating classic recordings, attitudes, and experiences for modern audiences—called "flipping" within the culture. It follows in the footsteps of earlier American musical genres - blues, jazz, and rock and roll - in becoming one of the most practiced genres of music in existence worldwide. It also takes additional inspiration from soul music, funk, and rhythm and blues.

    I did not get anyone to get back to me on the tickets which I had to prepay by today, so I've cancelled the event. However, I will still be at Café 180 at 6 p.m. on Saturday and going over to the Gothic after dinner. If you still want to meet up with me, tickets are available at the door for $12.

    If you are going to this, can you please confirm by Wednesday? I have to buy the tickets by Thursday to get the $10 price and once I pay for them, I won't get me money back. Thanks!

    If you plan to attend this event, please purchase your tickets through me. They are $2 less than if purchased from the Gothic. More importantly, the money goes directly to the performers and is their only compensation. If you purchase from the Gothic, the Gothic keeps the money. Let me know how many tickets you will need as I am getting them on consignment from the RiseUp Rekords performers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
