We know Papadosio plays a huge set every time they come to Colorado, we have supported so many of there shows now looking back at it the last couple years. Its been great to see them rise to being one of the premiere bands in the scene, mad love to Papadosio for always having C2S out. We all are stoked for this Fillmore event yeeeee. Also a great addition to the lineup is the upcoming funky group TNERTLE from Colorado who are Super Best Record artists.

The Last Waltz Revisited Fillmore Auditorium Preview

We are supporting the upcoming The Last Waltz - Revisited event at the Fillmore Auditorium on 11/23! This is our second year helping with the party and you don't want to miss this truly unique super jam show. Come be a part of the 12th Anniversary of the annual event which will feature more then 50 musicians during the night.

In short this event was started by the local band Polytoxic in 2005. They wanted to host a show that highlighted local talent that they played with in there travels over the last few years. So they put on a event that re-enacted The Band's "The Last Waltz," a concert film by Martin Scorsese from 1978. It was The Band's last performance and they played with many famous names this night. 

Below is the full history behind the event courtesy of the The Last Waltz Revisited Site. We will have a City2Snow ticket giveaway dropping soon, stay tuned #C2SFAM. Also catch The Last Waltz - Revisited event at the Boulder Theater on 11/18.

Information Courtesy of The Last Waltz Revised Site HERE Below:

"Back in 2005, Denver’s award-winning jamband Polytoxic wanted to put on a show that could showcase all the great local musicians they had been playing with for the past few years. A friend of theirs gave them a DVD of The Band’s The Last Waltz for Christmas, and as they watched the movie, they realized that with the wealth of talent in the local music scene they could easily do a re-enactment of the movie. There were friends of theirs that even fit specific roles perfectly, and the show basically put itself together.
 
The show was held at Dulcinea’s 100th Monkey in Denver’s Capitol Hill area on May 25, 2005, and included 16 guest musicians with a four-piece horn section. Polytoxic planned on it being a fun little show that would garner a little bit of interest… it sold out in minutes, surprising the band and fans alike, and became the biggest show they had ever thrown.  So big, in fact, they decided to do it a second time in 2005 – this time on the night before Thanksgiving at Cervante’s Masterpiece Ballroom – and The Last Waltz Revisited was born.
 
The Last Waltz Revisited quickly became an annual tradition in Denver, growing larger every year. With its growth came bigger venues – five years at Cervante’s Masterpiece Ballroom, one year at the Gothic Theatre, and three years at the Ogden Theatre before moving to the Fillmore Auditorium in 2014. The show became a charity event in 2006, benefiting The Denver Rescue Mission, underscoring the Thanksgiving theme of the show by donating a portion of its proceeds and spearheading a drive for canned food and desired hygiene items. 2009 saw the addition of the Boulder Theater, and was also the first year to have Buck Perigo open the show with his spot-on rendition of Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant”.

This year marks the 12th Anniversary of The Last Waltz Revisited, and the 40th anniversary of the original concert in 1976.  Boasting more than 50 musicians, a full horn section, and over 30 songs from The Band’s extensive catalog, The Last Waltz Revisited is an uplifting holiday  celebration of herculean proportions. By featuring primarily local musicians from Colorado’s flourishing music scene, involving the Denver Rescue Mission, and receiving overwhelming support from the fans, this has become an important community event that helps kick off the holiday season off with a smile"

Snowboard on the Block Review

We dropped media coverage from the 2016 Snowboard on the Block event! The 2-day party went down on 10/14 + 10/15/2016! The Block festival featured new snowboard film premiers, live music, a pro rail jam, local vendors, and a mini skate ramp. It was great they moved the Block festival from the old location to right downtown in Sculpture Park. This bigger location allowed the festival to be larger then years past and the set up was dope inside!

All of us had a great time watching the new snowboard films! On Friday our highlights were seeing the filmed titled "Manboys the Movies" by Shred Bots. Then seeing the hard ass Chief Keef and the Glo Gang live set made the 1st day of the Block Festival go off. Here is our full City2Snow Day 1 Photos + Review,  CLICK HERE.

On day 2 of the Block festival we enjoyed the rail jam in the afternoon. Shout out to Vans “Off The Wall” for presenting the Van Doren Pro Jam which was a street-style snowboard competition. They brought 25 tons of snow to make that rail jam happen, and Jesse Paul of Salomon Snowboards won the contest. Our main Day 2 highlights were the Afroman set and the epic film titled "Stronger" by Union. 

Thanks again to SNOWBOARDER and TransWORLD SNOWBoarding for having us out. Also shout out Tsunami Music Publicity for getting us linked up on the event. Hope everybody had fun at Snowboard on the Block. Have a huge winter out there and shred lots of powwwwww. Mad love #C2SFAM we will definitely be checking out Snowboard on the Block next year!

Here are the photos we took from Day 1 and Day 2 of the event :)

Snowboard on the Block Day 1 Recap

We dropped media coverage from Snowboard on the Block last night! What a dope event nothing better than snowboard films, live music, and vendors that all resonate with the mountain community ;)

We hit the Outdoor Sound Stage at the Denver Performing Arts Complex & Sculpture Park where Mimosa took over the stage and dropped a filthy glitch-hop dubstep set. Closing the music lineup was Chief Keef, check these sick photos for an idea of the madness on stage.It was great hearing one of our favorite songs, "Don't Like".

Let's do it again #C2SFAM we are ready for more new Snowboard Films today! Also we are looking forward to seeing MARTYPARTY  and Afroman play live. 

See ya there today!! BUY TICKETS

MartyParty Interview

We had the privilege of sending in questions to Martin Folb better known as, MartyParty! He is a music producer and performer originally from South Africa but now resides in Miami. Martin also makes up half of the very popular duo, PANTyRAID

It was fun getting more information on what is new with MartyParty and seeing what he has in store for his set at the upcoming Snowboard on the Block event in Denver. C2S will be at the Block event dropping media coverage from downtown Denver on October 14th and 15th. Read our 2016 Snowboard on the Block preview CLICK HERE and make sure to BUY TICKETS

We have been following MartyParty's career for years now and saw him first in San Francisco on Halloween in 2011. This lineup looking back on it was crazy with Paper Diamond and Gladkill also playing that night, ah such good times. We are stoked to see MartyParty at Snowboard on the Block. Also don't miss his PANTyRAID set at Beta on October 21st BUY TICKETS. Thanks again to MartyParty and his team for dropping this interview with C2S!!

C2S: You've had a busy summer touring, what were some highlights from being on the road? 

MP: Yes - been touring with Ooah as PANTyRAID since May its been fun. We did some huge festivals with Insomniac which were fun to hear your own music on giant production and see your own visual creations on giant LEDs. We asked our agents to book the best clubs in each city so the shows were all in amazing clubs night after night, which is always my fave when people are up close to me and can see my passion and dance moves :)

C2S: Our business City2Snow is based in Denver, we will be at the upcoming 2016 Snowboard on the Block Festival on October 14th and 15th. With your set being the second day of the event, how would you say your sound resonates with snowboarders and the larger mountain community?

MP: I've always had a large fanbase in extreme sports, snowboarding being one of them yes. I think the design of the music being a progression of intensity lends well to the nature of snowboarding with its peaks and troughs, highs and lows. Always love the snowboarding community.

C2S: Do you have a favorite area that you like to ride, if so, how long have you been snowboarding? 

MP: I became pretty familiar with Lake Tahoe and its community and mountains. I've been snowboarding since 2000.

C2S: Last time we saw a MartyParty set was at the Barkley Ballroom up in the Colorado mountains earlier this year. Do you enjoy playing more intimate shows in ski and snowboard towns?  

MP: Yes - I'm a big fan of the small shows full of knowledgeable fans of bass music. Colorado has always been on top of the music game, so the small town board pubs and clubs are always rowdy, intense and full of love and spirit.

C2S: How long have you been with the Madison House Agency and how has this partnership impacted your career so far? 

MP: I switched to Madison in 2015 right before the PANTyRAID tour started and immediately felt that they were more focussed on the musicians and less on the hype. After all, we are musicians that produce and play our own music just like a band and should be considered as such. I feel very at home with Madison. Onward.

C2S: All of us have been jamming your 6th studio album "RAW" which came out in June. Can you describe some of the inspirations behind the sound you were able to create? 

MP: RAW came about from the music I wrote during tour in 2014. All those sketches from the laptop came together in a studio session in early 2015, and the whole album is very reflective of that time in my life. A RAW time. Some huge hits on that album once again way before their time.

C2S: How has your live performance changed since releasing the album and can your fans expect anything new when they hit your set at Snowboard on the Block?  

MP: As always I play my latest music which has come a long way since 2015. In 2016 I've been writing a lot of different styles and tempos, and that is the flavor of my current set. As always MartyParty is fresh and experimental. You will love it.
