On Tuesday, February 22, members of the Boulder/Denver music community will converge on Denver Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom for Come alive for Colorado, a benefit concert for those affected by the Marshall Fire, which destroyed hundreds of Boulder-area homes in the last days of 2021.
Organized by Ali Jay in partnership with live for live music, Come Alive For Colorado will feature over thirty notable touring musicians. The diverse collection of scheduled artists draws from a wide range of genres, representing the stylistic diversity of Colorado’s live music community.
Artists scheduled to appear at Come Alive For Colorado on February 22 include Kris Myers (McGee d’Umphrey, Kick The Cat), DJ Williams (The Tiny Universe of Karl Denson), Jason Han (The String Cheese Incident), Dominique Lalli (Big Gigantic), Adam Deish (Lettuce, Break Science), Borah Lee (scientific pause), Marcus Rezak, and a number of the motet family members, including current band members David Watts, Joey Porter, Ryan Jalbert, and Garrett Sayers and former member Scott Messersmith.
The event will also include a clothing drive. Please bring any undamaged clothing you wish to donate to those affected by the fire to the venue locker room on the day of the show.
Those unable to attend the two-set benefit show in person will be able to log on to a live broadcast via Jamcast with set break DJ sets by Doey Joey and DJ Charisma.
