  • Friday October 25

On October 25th we’ll be Live@Lunch with Gasoline Lollipops!
Gasoline Lollipops stitch scraps of American roots music to patches of their own tattered hearts to form an all-new tapestry of bleeding rock n’ roll. Formed in Colorado, Gasoline Lollipops’ members hail from different states, musical backgrounds, influences, and generations. When mixed, their sound is both sweet and explosive, like a Gasoline Lollipop.

Musicians! Kick-off Halloween week with us at the Music District on Monday, October 28. We’re staying open a little bit late and getting a little bit spooky at our first-ever After Hours, from 6-10PM. All activities FREE with RSVP.

Connect with other musicians through collaborative activities, including a ghostly jam session in our Living Room and a chance to have burning questions answered via the Mystery Machine.

Explore the Music District space: we’re dedicating our first floor to the evening’s festivities! Our Media Library will host an eerie-but-educational Theremin demonstration and we might crank up our vintage Edison record player for summoning inspiration.

Rehearse in our Blue and Green rooms* — sign up in advance for a block of time for you and your band to test-drive the gear and get in some practice time. (first-time Music District rehearsals only — space is limited!)

Record in our Red Room (REDЯUM) — we’ll have a simple setup for demo tracks, beat making, laying down lyrics and more. Leave with a USB so you can continue working on your project.
