Flying Dog Sponsoring US Pipe’s Official CD Release Party
Flying Dog is super excited to sponsor the CD release party for Colorado’s premier funk band, U.S. Pipe at Denver’s Bluebird Theater, on Thursday, February 19 at 8 p.m. We’ll have some tasty Flying Dog Ales on hand and will be passing out Flying Dog schwag.
The album, released through their own label, Pipe Circle Music, Inc., was produced by Bill Thomas, recorded and mixed by Christopher “C3″ Cardone at Area Five Point One Studio in Evergreen, Colo., and was mastered by multi-Grammy winning David Glasser of Airshow Mastering, Boulder, Colo. United Sound Pipe features cover art by famous artist, Scrojo (scrojo.com) and very special guest, Rick Gardner, on trumpet (rubberhorn.com). An original member of Bootsy’s Rubber Band and longtime member of the P-Funk family, U.S. Pipe is honored to collaborate with him.
Support acts on the bill for the release party are Foma*, a quintet with a sonic palette that combines rock-alternative, funk, and blues, all lightly peppered with a pinch of country twang, Future Jazz Project, who set a new level of artistry with jazz roots combined with hip hop, R&B, and soul, and up-and-coming DJs The Illionaires.
The evening will also feature some giveaways and other fun surprises. The first 50 fans in the door will receive a collectible poster with Scrojo’s amazing album art signed by U.S. Pipe. In addition, everyone who brings a non-perishable food item and/or clothing to donate to local area charities will receive freebies courtesy of Flying Dog Brewery, a longtime supporter of U.S. Pipe.
“We know these are tough times for everyone,” says U.S. Pipe leader, Citrus, “so we really wanted to make this party an opportunity to give back to those who need it the most. We hope everyone will come out and not only have a great time, but bring a donation so we can spread the positivity within the community.”
Tickets for the release party are $10 in advance and $12 day of show. For tickets, go here.
