The Vinefield Agency Launch Party and Artist Showcase

by on Oct.19, 2010, under Concert Reviews, Photos

When I walked in Casselman’s Bar & Venue off Walnut St in LoDo, it was definitely a change from the sticky beer floors, the 1o foot wide stages, and graffiti covered bathroom stalls that I was used to. I’m not saying I was uncomfortable, I’m just saying it was an adjustment. I mean, they had a man in the bathroom to turn the water on for you and smell you to see if you needed cologne. But once I had scoped out my environment and found a group of hipsters to stand near (notice I said “near,” they still haven’t accepted me as their own), I grabbed a Newcastle Brown Ale and prepared myself for Vinefield Agency’s lineup for the night.

To start off the night, the MC (dressed in an all denim suit I might add) introduced I Know Your, Rider, a band he said (and they later confirmed) was loud. They played a solid set, filled with tremolos, head banging, and that rock beat they said they were gonna bring. I took home one of the sharpie’d CD they were giving away because, despite not having any lyrics, these guys new how to rock.

Rachel James Project

The next band reminded me that this was a showcase, which in my mind is the concert equivalent of that sampler you order when you want to please everyone in your party of six, a little bit of hot wings, chicken strips, avocado egg rolls, mozzarella sticks, etc. Sitting behind her piano Rachel James played with passion and sang the pop melodies that make her so appealing. Even with the absence of their usual guitar edge, the Rachel James Project provided the energy to follow a much more rock-sound without missing a beat.

Introducing the Vinefield Agency

by on Oct.11, 2010, under Blogs

I’m not sure if I’ve ever posted about a PR agency, but then again I’ve never encountered a group with the far-reaching appeal and artist roster of the Vinefield Agency. As a way of kicking things off in style, they’ve put together a showcase for some of Denver’s most talented acts (well, at least the groups they represent). Just a quick glance at the flier lineup was enough to catch my attention (i.e. it’s super stacked and also a ridiculously cheap ticket). The Vinefield Showcase will be happening this Friday (October 15) at Casselman’s and features The Knew, Achille Lauro, John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light, A. Tom Collins, 200 Million Years, and at least 6 more acts. Tickets are just $5 presale and $10 day-of (click on the flier for more details).
