Colorado-based spinster DJ Goodfoot and Turn It Out Productions announce a music release party dubbed "Welcome To The Candy Shoppe".

The gathering will take place in Denver on Tuesday May 20th at the Sugar House (www.sugarhouselounge.com), located at the corner of Alameda Ave. and Pecos.  Also performing throughout the evening will be Razor FM and Jasun Lovejoy w/special guests.

DJ Goodfoot is a local artist who has been busy spreading his craft across the West over the last five years.  He garnered some local fame through his residency at the famed Snake Pit in Denver for their "Destination Mondays", and more recently brought his style of house, techno, and break beats to exclusive clubs in Seattle such as Club Trinity.

His previous demos entitled "It's All in the Name" and "3rd Times a Charm" were well-received in the local club community.  Next month he plans to release his new single called "Dangs".  Funky beats and dark breaks layer this new piece, and it is sure to be another big piece in his musical puzzle.

The Sugar House will open at 8:00pm for the event, and a cover charge of $6 per person/$10 for two will apply.  Drink specials will also be featured during the performances.  Get your dancing shoes on get ready to boogie!

Black Tie-Dye Ball CD Release Party on 7/20 in NYC

- for the Grateful Web

On November 12, 2005, a group of musicians came together for the first ever NYC Rex Foundation Black Tie-Dye Bal l Benefit and created a night of incredible musical chemistry.

The Zen Tricksters (Jeff Mattson - lead guitar & vocals, Klyph Black - bass, slide guitar, & vocals, Tom Circosta - rhythm guitar & vocals, Joe Ciarvella - drums) plus special guests : Mickey Hart - vocals & cowbell, Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay - vocals, David Nelson - guitar & vocals, Tom Constanten - organ, piano & vocals, Michael Falzarano - guitar & vocals, Rob Barraco - piano, organ & vocals, Greg Anton - drums, David MacKay - bass, and Wendy Lanter - vocals.

Out of this event, The Zen Tricksters and Donna Jean Godchaux realized the music was too good to let go, and they had to continue this journey. So they added Mookie Siegel on keys and included Wendy Lanter on vocals and became: Kettle Joe's Psychedelic Swamp Revue

SXEast Austin party gig for Golden Dogs

The Golden Dogs- for the Grateful Web

Power-pop from Canada. Keyed up keyboards, mad guitars, souped-up vocals buoyed by irresistible harmonies: THE GOLDEN DOGS are gonna move you. About the new record, EVERYTHING IN 3 PARTS: "The dozen tracks on this Funzalo Records disc crackle with energy, here showcasing bubbly keyboards, there chiming guitars, elsewhere vocoder whimsies, making Everything in 3 Parts an irresistible exercise in manic magic." - Playback St. Louis
