Boulder, CO-based rockers The Menagerie just announced their Second Annual 4/20 celebration at the Trilogy Lounge in Boulder. Last year The Menagerie hosted an all-night laser extravaganza at the Fiske Planetarium on the University of Colorado campus. The band decided against the planetarium idea this year, but still felt the need to celebrate this great holiday!
"The show at the planetarium was one of the most exciting times of my life! I can't believe a band decided to play a show in there. The light and laser show was the trippiest light show I had ever seen. Not to mention the chocolate hearts that were being served. I can't wait to see what they do this year!" -Joe Sortwell (University of Colorado Student and member of The Menageatua).
The Menagerie is a highly established band in the Denver/Boulder music scene. They play regular monthly shows at the famously "Fabulous" Fox Theatre as well as performances all along the Rocky Mountain front range. The Menagerie has toured in 25 states and plans to continue spreading their new eclectic style to the masses of the world.
When asked about the future of the band, Manager Jeremy Walker states
"We plan to keep touring and getting the name out to the rest of the U.S. The Menagerie has been successful in every region they have traveled, so we feel that stopping now would be the dumbest decision we have ever made. And trust me, we have made some really dumb decisions. The Southeast has been extremely good to us, so we'll probably try to concentrate on that area as well as continue to play monthly shows in our home state of Colorado. The 4/20 show this year will be a special treat for The Menageatua (fans of the band), so hopefully everyone won't be too 'burned out' to attend!"
4/20 won't be the only show in Colorado this year for this "herb friendly" band. The Menagerie has also scheduled shows in Denver, Boulder, and Ft. Collins for the next few months. The Menagerie is definitely a new band to watch! Their style is very unique as they are offering a new face to the world of rock music with a genre that they like to call "Composite Arena Rock." Their eclectic sound is composed of electronic trance grooves that hypnotize the mind, mixed with strong funky jazz-influenced tracks to keep the body moving. There is no explanation for what you may experience during a performance by The Menagerie. The only thing anyone can tell you is to come and enjoy the Menageatua!
