The Thursday Night Stretch : Vedana @ The Funky Buddha
After a 5 month hiatus, the Thursday night weekly ‘Vedana’ returns to the Funky Buddha Lounge rooftop. The night features resident DJs Seth Nichols and Kevin Callison playing weekly alongside special guests from local and surrounding scenes. Vedana is always amped with audio and visual extras that keep the atmosphere exciting and developing. Each week also features local artists that come in and do live painting or sculpture pieces, also usually having a few finished products available for purchase. The rooftop’s open and outdoor space is a perfect setting for the summer music season. With Colorado’s great weather, and the buzzing downtown scene, it makes for a rich atmosphere. The bar has some friendly drink specials as well, all night you can take advantage of the ‘beat the clock’ drink special with $1 drinks from 9-10, $2 from 10-11, and so on. To most people’s surprise there is also a diverse tapas menu available from 6-10pm. Definitely worth going early for some quality grub and tasty beer on tap! The music kicks off at 9:00 sharp with deep and minimal tech-house and carries into the dancier sounds as the night progresses. The weekly special guest plays from 11-12:30 with Kevin and Seth filling in the surrounding areas. Surely worth stopping in one Thursday as the weekly is set to run for at least the duration of the summer, and there is never a cover charge!
This past weeks featured talent was local mixer Greg Eversoul of Roots along with Scott Keva James from Seattle Washington (www.scottkevajames.com). Scott is a highly acclaimed video mixer having done the visual mixing at the Decibel Festival from 2006-09. He also did a Live PA Ableton set of his recent production work to open the night nicely.
