THURSDAY, 11/12 in LA -> Super excited to be spinning with DJ Sean G at Rock The Boat! Caught the party last time I was in town and loved the heavy R&B vibes, cool crowd and style of the venue, The Association. Shouts to Sean G and DJ Eff.Em for inviting me to rock!!!
Sunday, May 3rd at 2pm -> 2015 Opening Day Goodness w/DJ Low Key & special guests Skillz (Virginia / DJ set & hosting), Dayta (Houston / Kracker Nuttz) & Fast4ward, live art from Jaime Molina & Joseph Martinez, ZenOne, raffles & more!!! Don’t miss season 4′s kickoff on The Meadowlark’s magical patio!
SUNDAY, 5/3 at 2pm -> Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends is back for season 4 and we couldn’t be happier!!! Last Summer was INCREDIBLE and we can’t wait to pick up where we left off last Fall, rocking all sorts of great music, drinking agua frescas and enjoying the best company possible on the Meadowlark’s magical patio (2701 Larimer St)!
To kick off season 4, we’re excited to be bringing out not one, but two ridicululously talented guests to join me on the turntables; legendary rapper/host/DJ (Mad) Skillz from Virginia and one of my favorite DJs in the whole country, Houston’s own Dayta! Skillz has classic rap records with the likes of Q-Tip, The Beatnuts, The Neptunes, Missy & Timbaland, spent the last decade plus on the road as Jazzy Jeff’s official MC and recently just got back from DJing on the Pinkprint tour in Europe. He’s a hip hop legend and the perfect person to help kick off season 4, both as a host and DJ.
Also in from out of town is Dayta, the super dope DJ who just shared the stage with Just Blaze at the SXSW Serato/Okayplayer showcase and keeps Texas up on all the best new music. Dude has some of the best, most unique selection you’re gonna hear all year, come see for yourself!
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also excited to welcome out Denver’s best kept secret; the man, the myth himself, Fast4ward. If you haven’t seen his one of a kind performances before, you’re gonna have your mind blown and if you have seen him, I’m sure he’ll flip the show, because that’s what he does every time and it’s part of the magic.
We’ve also got two of Denver’s best artists, the infamous Joseph Martinez & Jaime Molina painting live at the party again! Their piece from last Summer’s opener was unbelievably dope and I’m sure whatever they cook up this year will be crazy too!
For food, we’ve proud to announce we’re gonna be working with the fine folks at Cart-Driver (just named best pizza in Denver by Westword’s Best Of Issue) to give y’all COMPLIMENTARY pizza throughout the day to get the season started right. Free pizza that’s the best in town? That’s the plan for the season opener, hopefully you enjoy it!
We’re also happy to be celebrating the birthday of the one and only DJ Discord of the Crunk Brothers, Denver’s favorite Brazilian music expert, so if you see him, wish him the best! To round out the day, ZenOne is also gonna be in the building with some raffles you don’t wanna miss, you already now we’ll have our renowned agua frescas on deck, and as always, official Goodness/Solution photographer Knower Of The Ledge will be in the taking pictures of the party (follow us on Instagram: @GDNSS, if you don’t already). Last but not least, a couple of quick changes to try to make things at the party run smoother:
-We moved the start time up an hour to 2pm, because no matter what, Sundays always seem to fly by too quick.
-We’re gonna start using the front entrance to the bar on the corner of 27th & Larimer St (instead of the side patio entrance).
-Using the front entrance, well be able to open the inside bar, shorten the wait for drinks throughout the day and also relieve the giant clusterfuck of people by the side door/patio bar outside (plus it should be a nice spot to cool off or have a quieter conversation midday too).
-Also, we got stamp. It way cooler than an X on your hand from the door guy.
P.S. On another note, some Latvian rappers (I can’t make this shit up) decided to try to take over the #GDNSS hashtag over the Winter and cluttered it up with a strange Eastern block Euro wannabe rap song. PLEASE do me and the party a favor and add #GDNSS to your posts about everything this Summer so we can hopefully reclaim the hashtag we started! I know it’s silly, but thanks in advance Denver!!!

UPDATE: The legendary DJ House Shoes (Los Angeles / Street Corner Music) will be joining the turntable fun with a slow jam set to close out the night and we’re also going to premier the new Bianca Mikahn video, “Lovers & Friends” to add to the Valentine’s Day themed fun. Bata shane, my dillie? You’re right my daimies, it doesn’t get much better than that.
SATURDAY, 2/14 -> Wa dah tah!!! Sa Da Tay is back & this month we’re welcoming out Bay Area/New York favorite DJ Tap 10 (of the world renowned Honor Roll Crew), king of the tender knock, and the perfect guest to play some Valentine’s Day type jams.

No cover until 10pm, only $5 after / 21+.
REMINDER: There’s no more parking in the church parking lot by Beauty Bar (they will tow). I started taking an Uber to work to get rid of the hassle of trying to park in Cap Hill & it’s been great.
