Show Info

Together with the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, Listen Up Denver! and Park House are hosting a “Battle of the Bands” event on August 9th that will benefit Firefly Autism and Autism Speaks and give some of the best bands in the Rocky Mountain region the opportunity to perform alongside some of the biggest musical names in the country at the 21st annual Telluride Blues & Brews Festival in September. Firefly Autism is a Denver based 501c 3 ABA shop (Applied Behavior Analysis) that focuses on working with children with Autism to transform their lives through thoughtful, innovative, empirical learning treatment programs. Autism Speaks is the world’s leading Autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for Autism; increasing awareness of Autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with Autism and their families. After combing through over 900 submissions from around the world, the six bands that have been chosen as finalists, and will play head-to-head on August 9th are: 18 year old blues guitar sensation Austin Young Band, New York Blues Hall of Famer Chaz DePaolo Band, International Blues Challenge 3rd place honorees Dan Traenor’s Afrosippi Band featuring Erica Brown, rising psych-blues innovators Dragondeer, Westword Music Showcase “Best Traditional Rock Band” winners Fox Street, and the genre bending “blues with a banjo” trio Tallgrass.
