Sunday, 6/23 at 3pm -> Lessondary Birthday Goodness w/DJ Low Key, DJ Gordo (MOM founder/SF), DJ sets from Donwill & Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan/Brooklyn) & more on the Meadowlark’s patio! We’re celebrating the birthdays of Denver Frank, Charley Cox, Big House, Monique, Donwill & myself!!! Food by Moontower Tacos, Denver Dessert Trolley & more + a 10pm screening of Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead!!!


SUNDAY, 6/23 at 3pm -> I think every Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends is pretty damn special, but I gotta admit I’m biased in regards to this weekend’s edition, as I celebrate my birthday with some of my favorite Gemini/Cancers in grand tradition.  For this epic birthday celebration I’ll be joined on the turntables by founder of the nationally acclaimed Motown On Mondays parties, San Fransisco’s own DJ Gordo, and two friends of the party who might be better know as MCs, but can still smash a DJ set from time to time, Donwill and Von Pea of the almighty Tanya Morgan (make sure you catch them rapping, masterfully, at The Solution Showcase #15 on Wed, 6/26).  The DJ lineup is exceptional this week, but we might be a little more focused on celebrating life, with six birthdays and a divorce to celebrate.  Joining me in on the celebration will be TM’s own Donwill, Shag’s favorite bartender Charley Cox, Denver hip hop fixture Big House, the beautiful Monique M and renowned man about town Denver Frank (who’s also celebrating his divorce), which should make for one hell of a day.

Great Goodness shot by the homie Bravo.  Check out more of his incredible photos here and remember to hashtag your Goodness pics with #GDNSS.

The misters and fresh agua frescas will be keeping us cool, Moontower Tacos & Denver Dessert Trolley will be serving us unbelievably delicious tacos & desserts, the vibe should be borderline perfect and at 10PM, we’ll be closing things out the party with a Goodness Film Club screening of Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead, easily one of my favorite movies of all-time (and not just because of the awesome settings…LOL).  What more could you ask for on the Meadowlark’s beautiful patio? 2701 Larimer St / No Cover / 21+.

Friday, 2/22 -> The Solution Showcase #13 w/Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), Diamond Boiz, Paul Junior, DJ Low Key & DJ Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark…

FRIDAY, 2/22 -> It’s that time again, The Solution Showcase is back for another month with more of the best in national and Colorado-bred talent.  Things have been great with the monthly showcase, but we’re about to make them even better.  Instead of $8 at the door and $5 pre-sales, once a month we’ll be incorporating the monthly Solution Showcase into the new weekly Solution at the Meadowlark and keeping the price the same whenever possible.  That means NO COVER until 11pm and only $5 afterwards most of the time, even with stacked lineups of national and CO talent.  We figured the consistency would be good and if you tell a few friends about the lower price and showcases, then everybody wins.

With that said, let’s talk lineup.  For this month’s Solution Showcase #13, we’ve got an all-time Solution favorite and good friend of the party, Brooklynati’s own Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), making his solo Denver debut, complete with fresh new material and classics in tow.  Von’s been out to The Solution as much as anyone over the years, but always performing with Donwill (and sometimes Ilyas) as Tanya Morgan.  This time he’s gonna be out here performing tracks from Pea’s Gotta Have It, premiering new joints from his upcoming Duly Noted EP with Aeon (set to drop next month, but if you e-mail DulyNoted@DenverSolution.com we’ll send you the exclusive Solution preview) and more.  He’ll be joined by Denver favorites Diamond Boiz (aka Dyalekt, Zome & Zé), Fresh Breath Committee’s Paul Junior and The Solution’s own DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables in another top notch bill. 21+/Free until 11/$5 after/2701 Larimer St.


Thursday, 6/14 -> Catch Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan) in his solo CO debut at The Solution Boulder w/DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme at ‘Round Midnight…

THURSDAY, 6/14 -> Catch special guest Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan/Lessondary) in his solo Colorado debut at The Solution Boulder w/DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme at ‘Round Midnight (1005 Pearl St).  The acclaimed Brooklyn MC has racked up countless props, courtesy of everyone from Questlove of the Roots to Jay-Z’s new favorite rapper Danny Swain to Ali Shaheed Muhammed of A Tribe Called Quest, come out and see why.  21+/No Cover/Music at 10. $3 Stoli cocktails & $3 crafts beer specials.
