Project Aspect w/ Love and Light, Mikey Thunder & Psymbionic @ Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom - 5/8/14 - (Review)

Review by: Justin D'Amico

Last Thursday a bunch of talented young glitch-hop bands put on a hell of a show at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom. The line-up was stacked with local talent and some groups from out of town. The Colorado bands include: Tnertle, Mikey Thunder, with Project Aspect headlining the show. As for imported talent Psymbionic is from Austin, Texas; while Love and Light are out of Reno, Nevada. Everyone performing meshed well backstage, it was a lot of fun to talk to everyone and make new friends.

Along with the superb glitch-hop music were a number of visually appealing art displays. Live art was created right on stage and also in the normal vending areas on both sides of the dance floor. Cervantes' is starting to have a reputation for involving incredible artists in the concert experience. Some of the artists will tell you that they feed off of having an inspirational setting to create in.

Psymbionic hit the stage with an impressive head of long blonde dreadlocks. This was one of the stops for the Spring Tour with Psymbionic and Love and Light. Mikey Thunder and Psymbionic would switch on and off for a sort of tag team set which was cool. The duel set went for about an hour before Love and Light's set. Love and Light are very energetic on stage and the two guys Matt and Ryan really feed off the energy of the crowd. They killed it and made a point to sign anything their fans wanted signed right after their set.

The headliner for the night was the one and only Project Aspect. He is from Denver, Colorado and represents the area well with an incredible talent for creating glitch hop and other genres. For this performance Project Aspect not only showcased some of his amazing music, but he created guitar riffs live making new unique samples on stage and incorporating them into his set. Jay has more energy on stage than anyone, he is constantly gyrating to the music and creating an atmosphere for everyone to go all out and dance. You have to go check out Project Aspect whenever you get a chance to, he is one of the most entertaining producers to watch live.

What a great night in Denver on a random Thursday. You really can't beat Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom and all the great music they bring to town each and every week. Big ups to everyone who made last Thursday a night to remember.
