Sunday, 7/13 at 1pm -> The Meditations Of Marcus Arrilius Release Party + Celebrate Life at Goodness w/extra special guest Fat Trak, DJ Dozen, DJ Motto & DJ Low Key on the Meadowlark’s patio! Come celebrate the long-awaited release of the late great Marcus Arrilius & Fat Trak’s official debut album!!!

SUNDAY, 7/13 from 1pm-10pm -> Almost a year and a half ago, Denver lost a very significant voice way before his time with the passing of the late great Marcus Arrilius. While the man’s presence is sorely missed around town, his musical legacy lives on in the form of his highly anticipated debut album with producer Fat Trak and it was an honor when Trak reached out to have Goodness host its official release. Over the last year and half, Fat Trak has been taking the time to lovingly craft every detail on the album and the result is unquestionably one of the best albums I’ve ever heard come out of Colorado, regardless of the tragic back story or not, and with that said, if you’re a fan of music in Denver, hip hop, myself or whatever, please make sure that if you’re only gonna come out to one Goodness this Summer, please make it this one.

We’ll be playing the album a few times through from 1pm-3pm and we’ll have hard copies of the albums for sale, with half of the proceeds going to Marcus’s children (get out a taste of the project below). Then around 3pm, Meditations Of Marcus Arrilius producer Fat Trak will showcase a beat set for the crowd, followed by DJ sets from the two DJs featured on the album, frequent collaborators DJ Dozen & DJ Motto, as well as myself. Throughout the day, we’ll be celebrating the music and life of Marcus and in doing so, hopefully appreciating life ourselves. I know it sounds over the top, but the party’s called Goodness and celebrating life is what we do regularly, so let’s take 7/13 to be a little more appreciative of life. HUGE shouts to Fat Trak for reaching out help with the album release and DJ Dozen for all his help on the event, it’s an honor to help preserve the legacy of an underexposed Denver great.

Also, as usual we’ve got complimentary stadium style Goodness cups for the first 25 people to get drinks, as well as complimentary buttons for everybody! And of course, Moontower Tacos will be out front making their incredible, uniquely tasty tacos to fuel the party, making the cipher complete.
