On May 13th, Leftover Salmon will take over Santa Fe Drive in the heart of Denver’s Arts District for a free block party and performance presented by 97.3 KBCO celebrating the long-awaited release of ‘Aquatic Hitchhiker’ (5.22, LoS), the band’s first album in eight years.
Sponsored by Breckenridge Brewery and Renegade Brewery, the event is also a benefit for the non-profit organization Conscious Alliance, which raises money for underprivileged communities (http://www.consciousalliance.org/).
The concert is free and open to the public, food and beverages will be sold and iClips will host an online live stream for viewers at home. iClips is also currently presenting ‘Salmonlandia’, a behind-the-scenes documentary outlining Leftover Salmon’s return to the studio.

The show begins at 1pm and will be followed by a ticketed VIP after party at Space Gallery (http://spacegallery.org/) where artist Scramble Campbell will present a retrospective of his Leftover Salmon paintings and the band will be present for a meet-and-greet and signing. Complementary beverages and food will be served. Space is very limited. For ticket reservations, visit: http://www.leftoversalmon.com/
‘Aquatic Hitchhiker’ is Leftover Salomon’s first album to debut all original compositions and the first with banjo prodigy Andy Thorn, 29. “It’s been really exciting to get back to the studio and bounce off of each other’s ideas,” said Vince Herman. Read more here: http://bit.ly/IfZ0Na
