Thursday, 5/8 at 7PM -> Red Bull Music Academy Info Session w/DJ Low Key at the Funky Buddha

In my not so humble opinion, the Red Bull Music Academy is easily one of the coolest things in music period. I’m not gonna go into a long sales pitch, but basically it’s a free two week program where Red Bull sends 60 lucky/deserving SUPER LUCKY/SUPER DESERVING musicians, DJs, producers, rappers, vocalists and engineers of all ability levels to some great city (Barcelona this year) with a bunch of LEGENDARY lecturers/tutors (everyone from DJ Premier to Motown’s maestros the Mizell Brothers to James Brown’s bandleader David Mathews to Just Blaze and more) to work on making great music. Red Bull foots the bills for food, travel and so on, puts participants in a dope ass house/studio and amazing things happen.

That’s the short version of what the program is all about, if it sounds like something you’d interested in applying for, check out their site at for all the details and if you’re in Colorado, come check out the info session/Q&A on the academy hosted by yours truly at 7PM on 5/8 at the Funky Buddha (776 Lincoln), where you can pick up an application CD-Rom (you can also download the application here) featuring exclusive music from previous last year’s session in Toronto, ask any questions about the program, drink a free Red Bull & more. FYI – The US Application deadline has been extended to 5/19 due to a delay getting the application CD-Roms through customs. Since the program has applicants from all over the world, the main site still reflects the original 5/5 deadline, please don’t be confused.
