FRIDAY, 2/6 -> It’s hard to believe that over a hundred Fridays have gone by since me & the infamous Sounds Supreme branched out from the “regular” club scene to start the kind of party we’d wanna go to back in February 2007.Â We named the party the Solution and since then, every week’s been a beautiful mix of the best hip hop, exceptional people & great drinks (mainly courtesy of our longtime bartender Jessica, the “third member of the Solution”).Â Well with our two year birthday coming on 2/6, we’re going all out to celebrate with a Solution cake courtesy of the Shoppe, art from Dunn the Street Sign Artist & more, photographers from the Westword, Red Bull Wings girls, mad drink specials & some crazy gift bags (details below).
It’s been a busy two years.Â We’ve played host to a variety of out of town guests from Blu to Median to Tanya Morgan to the Kidz in the Hall to Che Grand to Mickey Factz & more.Â We had some of CO’s best DJs, from Vajra to Chonz to Psycho to Bedz to Amen, spin guest sets & wanna plan their next guest spot before the night ends. We’ve thrown a J Dilla tribute for Ma Dukes with Stones Throw, a couple of chicken & waffles parties to honor the west coast, showings from some of Denver’s best artists, fashion shows with Akomplice & that’s just a few of the fun things that you might have missed if you haven’t been coming out every week.Â There’s quite a few reasons Common called us “the real hip hop in Denver” and we were named “Best Hip Hop Night” in the Westword’s 2008 “Best of Denver” issue (don’t forget to vote for us in ’09).
But really though, the Solution’s not about us, it’s about you, the people who come out every week and support.Â Everyone from heads who come by after working a ten hour day to fly ass girls who know the words Camp Lo songs to “nerds” who saw us mentioned on blogs to off duty go go dancers to some of the best DJs in town (y’all got us running around calling the Solution “your favorite DJs favorite party”, excuse our cockiness). With that said, we’ve collected a ton of giveaways from most of the companies we’ve worked with over the last few years. Akomplice, Frank151, Family Affair, Speakeasy, Avenue, Estate LA, Lard, Counter Act Ltd, Stones Throw, Mad Decent, IM Culture (home of Tanya Morgan) & even the homie Nicolay laced us and we’ve made gift bags for y’all to show our gratitude. RSVP to email@example.com to reserve yours.Â 776 Lincoln / 21+ / No Cover / Music at 9 & come early, the spot’s normally packed & this Friday is gonna be extra extra.
P.S. Don’t miss Fantastic #3, the Solution’s third annual tribute to J Dilla on 2/27, plus stay tuned for Twitter.com/DenverSolution, DenverSolution.com & The Solution Mixtape #1 coming soon…
