WESTWOOD TAKES OVER THE OGDEN THEATRE FOR FIRST SHOW OF THE YEAR

 

It's the Canadian invasion! 

On February 28th, Westwood brought out the big guns for its first major American show of 2020 at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado. The Funk Hunters headlined, with support duties provided by Defunk, Moontricks, and Denver favorite, Ryan Mahrer. 

An electric night made all the more special by a surprise guest appearance from Dom of Big Gigantic, who came on to perform 'Higher', the newest track by the Funk Hunters and Big G; featured on their newest album 'Free Your Mind'. 

A big shoutout to everyone who made the night one to remember!

We are very excited to be back in Vancouver for our first event of the year, this time featuring the incredible live duo Moontricks! Coming to you all the way from the Kootenays BC (Shambhala country), Moontricks will bringing their unique blend of grassroots blues, wistful soul and bootstomping bass.

 

On support duty, hailing from Victoria, BC, and celebrating their forthcoming album "Hue" - also being released in May - we are proud to present Astrocolor. The full live band will be joining us for this show.

 

Also on support we are excited to have local Vancouver-based Westwood Producer/DJ duo's Diana Boss & Average-Gypsy.

 

In an effort to combat growing service fees in the Vancouver market (not set by us or our artists!) we have decided to start tickets at $20 and will also be working this week in getting some hard copies into stores. Thank you for supporting local, independent, and original music!
