Denver has quickly become a hot pocket for the live music scene and there’s one local band taking notice of the unparalleled talent popping up around town; that’s Fox Street. For their second year in a row, the Denver locals will take over the historic Bluebird Theater during New Year's Eve weekend, this time curating three nights of unique musical performances, all by local musicians.
On December 29th, Fox Street invites Yamn to join the bill with Rossonian, while on December 30th, Analog Son and MLIMA will grace the stage alongside Fox Street. Finally, on December 31st, Fox Street is excited to play with Mama Magnolia while the band celebrates their upcoming vinyl LP release.
Fox Street holds the honor of playing New Year’s Eve at the Bluebird in high regard as a local artist. “To get to play a premiere venue, such as the Bluebird, in our hometown, is a very big honor and such a blast,” shares Fox Street drummer, Eric Low. He continues, “Just getting the opportunity to play a single show is huge, let alone three nights. Especially in Denver, since we have such a competitive and vibrant live music scene.”
This show is important to the guys of Fox Street for another reason; as of last year, the band has been much choosier about their live performance because one of their core members is no longer “local.” Low explains, “Our beloved singer Jonathan “Skippy " Huvard has been in Brooklyn this past year working on some other amazing projects and we have all been playing and growing personally in many different projects and ways. We are using all this new energy and information to come back bigger and stronger as a unit and come together creatively and musically at the highest level possible.”
In a vibrant scene such as Denver — with numerous concerts happening around town — Fox Street thinks it is important to highlight the local scene running rampant in Denver. “Our vision is to cultivate an annual New Year's Eve event that is centered around Denver local bands and the community,” explains Low. He continues, “It's easy to open up Facebook or the Westword and see a myriad of awesome stuff planned for New Year’s celebrations along the front range and when you start to look at the acts in the theaters and bigger venues, none of those artists are local. We are the only option if you want to come see the best local bands Denver has to offer.”
