Magic Beans w/s/g Cycles
8:30pm / Animas City Theatre
$15/$20/18+   Tickets available at Animas City Theatre, Animas Trading Company, & online at www.animascitytheatre.com   Standing Room only on dancefloor, Limited seating in balcony   Magic Beans  Magic Beans have steadily built upon their national notoriety in a short period of time with a distinguishable sound that is uniquely their own. Hailing from Denver, the band’s combo of funk/soul/rock has quickly set themselves apart from the pack as one of the state’s premier acts. The Beans made their Red Rocks debut in April of 2019, prior to releasing their new album, Off Leash, on June 21st, 2019.   The new album, “Off Leash”, is a testament to the group shedding the restraints of genre based music in favor of embracing different elements found across the musical realm. It was also an exercise in pushing the band’s sound forward, building upon the last release as opposed to simply recreating the sound. Magic Beans use analog and vintage instrumentation to get a style that is both familiar but original. A B3 Organ here, a Wah guitar there - Vintage Synthesizers, and 808 drums (to name a few) make the music reminiscent of your favorite songs, while still sounding fresh. The Beans make music that moves your mind and body, with something for everyone from the audiophiles to the everyday music fan.   Disenchanted with the regular studio experience, the band sought out more Off Leash methods for the recording process and brought the studio to them. Bringing everything you need to record into guitarist Scott Hachey’s house in downtown Denver for 3 days of non-stop tracking. This allowed for a recording process that was not hindered by time or budget, allowing for the band to truly dial in the sounds they wanted while leaving the time for spontaneous creation. The result is a well developed and mature album, sonically brilliant, and yet doesn’t lose that home-made vibe the band desired. You can hear the love baked into each song, as many of the tracks were recorded in the kitchen or living room. ‘Off Leash’ also features guests from the band’s close musical family adding brass, percussion, lap steel, banjo, and more.   With appearances in 2019 some of the scenes marquee festivals, Red Rocks Amphitheater, a stacked touring schedule and hosting their own Beanstalk Music Festival every June in Colorado, Magic Beans are poised to make waves for many years to come.

ZOSO (Led Zeppelin Tribute Band)
8:30pm / Animas City Theatre
Come enjoy an evening with ZOSO Celebrating 50 years of Led Zepplin   Tickets available at the Animas City Theatre, Animas Trading Company, and online at www.animascitytheatre.com $22/$25/18+   The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating Led Zeppelin live show since the real thing. For Zoso, it’s much more than just being a tribute. It’s about touching a golden era in music. Zoso embodies Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones in their spirit, tightly­ wound talent and authenticity.   Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their Led Zeppelin counterparts. In eighteen successful years of touring, they have perfected their art. As one of the longest tenured Zeppelin tributes, Zoso’s 2400 live shows around the world, including a slot at Bonnaroo in 2003, have established them as the most traveled and successful band in the market.   Zoso’s live shows are not about simply playing the right notes, they are about aura and feeling, harkening back to the unique atmosphere Led Zeppelin created. It’s in the way they play: Each band member’s mastery of authentic vintage instruments coupled with spot­on vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards, their compelling stage persona and distinct Led Zeppelin sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates the music, magic, and mystery of a Zeppelin concert. The impact is so powerful that band members constantly hear from young rockers that they were the catalyst behind turning them into new, die­hard Zeppelin fans.   Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim, name recognition and a loyal national following. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being "head and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes," and the Chicago Sun­Times declared Zoso is "the closest to the original of any tribute."   If you missed Led Zeppelin live in the 70's or are looking to relive the "Hammer of the Gods" phenomenon, you must experience what the St. Petersburg Times calls "the most exacting of the Zeppelin tribute bands in existence."   Links:  www.zosoontour.net www.facebook.com/zosoontour  www.youtube.com/zosoontour
