This event is all ages
Music maker Xenia Rubinos uses her powerful voice to create beats and melodies from scratch. Xenia's sound grows from a wide range of influences from r&b and hip-hop to Caribbean rhythms all delivered with a soulful punk aura. Her debut record, Magic Trix, is an ecstatic collection of songs featuring layered beats, crunchy keyboards, and driving syncopated rhythms.
The Other Black
The Other Black
The Other Black, featuring Cosmic Slim (formerly of Air Dubai and Petals of Spain) is
an experience unlike anything you have yet to observe in the Denver music market.
Newly formed in the late Fall of 2012, this dynamic group started with a mere 9
members and has launched to upwards of 24. That's right, just about 30 musicians
collaborating to bring you a unique sound and leave you with a smile in your soul.
These are musicians that have already contributed successfully to the scene; from Birds
Of A Feather, Bonnie & The Beard, Petals of Spain, The People's Abstract and more.
Needless to say, upon taking stage - this assortment of artistry commands it's presence.
Their act has been compared to reading an old school Parliament comic book. In a
nutshell, this crowd's get-up is wild, garish, & funky with fresh attire that makes you
believe they MUST have a costume designer amongst them somewhere. In short, they
are like watching a cartoon come to life.
The Other Black clearly simply loves what they do. Their soul-funk- do-wop mix with a
modern squeeze endears them. People are on their feet when The Other Black hits the
stage. If you haven't seen them yet, you will.
All songs are written and arranged by Cosmic Slim, with the exception of the few covers
they perform honoring soul legends Sly & The Family Stone and Ray Charles.
