DENVER  – The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver) in collaboration with Audiovore, a music documentation project, proudly announces “Don’t Look Down,” a new concert series on the rooftop deck of MCA Denver Sunday nights from July 8 to September 2, 2012. “Don’t Look Down” will feature concerts by eight Colorado-based bands, as well as the museum’s drinks, snacks and, of course, breathtaking city views.

“The ‘Don’t Look Down’ series is not only a great way to spend a Sunday summer night in Denver, it supports the museum’s mission by broadening the relationship between the museum and our audiences,” said Sarah Baie, director of programming and chief of fictions, MCA Denver.  “Audiovore has put together a wonderfully diverse lineup of Colorado’s most interesting musical acts, while at the same time, we’re extending our hours and vamping up our food and beverage offerings.”   

Documented live by Audiovore, each of the hand-picked rooftop concerts will be captured, produced and delivered online at audiovore.us and mcadenver.org.  The series will highlight Colorado’s incredibly rich and diverse music scene as it contributes to the state’s contemporary arts landscape.

“We are thrilled to be working with MCA Denver to bring great musicians to the museum’s enchanting rooftop cafe and make videos of those performances available to everyone,” says Erin Roberts, curator of the program for Audiovore.

At 5:30–7PM, on July 8, 15, 29; August 5, 12, 19, 26; and September 2. Initial lineup includes Sweet Tooth Meat Tooth (featuring members of Snake Rattle Rattle Snake), Ending People, In the Whale, Zebroids, Bad Weather California, Yawpers and Varlet. Full schedule TBA.
