.:: Flobots ::.
Denver, Colorado’s progressive hip-hop act Flobots bring it on real with their signature anthems dedicated to creating a better world. Since forming in 2005, Flobots have released three full-length albums, toured throughout the US and Europe, and appeared on late night programs including The Tonight Show and Late Night. Flobots are internationally known for their 2008 platinum single “Handlebars” and widely recognized for using their music as an inspiration for social change.

“The combination of a having a rock-band/orchestral-like group build and poetic lyricism is just as intriguing to the ears as it looks on paper. Flobots have blended genres under the guise of hiphop to the point of creating their own and it has brought forward the ears of people who otherwise have written-off hip-hop altogether.” – The Early Registration

“…the Denver band’s four [DNC] convention-related shows signaled the band’s rise from local heroes, blending hip hop, a viola, drums, guitar and bass, to international touring artists.” – USA Today

:: Qbala ::
This MC’s delivery and flow have been described many ways. The emcee out of Northern Colorado has a strong message, a relentless ambition, and an insatiable need to reach the masses. Hailing from Loveland, CO, this emcee brings a raw fresh mix of old school/new school hip hop/boombap to the shows that have become a mainstay in the Colorado hip hop scene. With the 2011 release “My State of Dementia,” Qbala anchored a spot in the ranks of seasoned performers, offering up lyrics on everything from sexuality to hustling for a name in the industry. Followed by the underground project, “Unfinished Business,” which released digitally in 2014.  Moving through more intricate beats, punching statements, and the “in your face” messages that Qbala Music has become associated with. With the 2014 EP release right behind her followed by another 2014 release “Dark Side of the Rain”, Qbala jumped right into 2015 releasing “Battle Cries,” EP which was highly anticipated with a major positive response. As 2016 begins, Qbala moves into a new realm of more poignant, personal, and memorable lyrics.The world waits to see the next quick move from this prolific MC.

In How to Let Go of the World and Love All The Things Climate Can’t Change, Oscar Nominated director Josh Fox (GASLAND) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known. Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?
