A few weeks ago, we reported that Jens Lekman played an unconventional house show in the Baker neighborhood of Denver. The show, produced by the guys over at Brass Tree Sessions, was a unique moment in the local music scene, and we appreciate what they’re doing. Today marks the first of several premieres over the forthcoming months where you will be able to get an exclusive first look at all Brass Tree Sessions episodes before they go live to the public.

From production member Leighton Peterson:

“A few weeks ago, Jens Lekman was in town to play a wedding. He sent out a message to his mailing list about trying to set up a house show in Denver. One of those people got in touch with our friends at the Illiterate gallery, and they got a hold of us. We tried to keep it as much of a secret as we could, but we still had around 100 people show up. It was easily one of the best shows I’ve ever been to, and it happened in our house!”

So, without further adieu, enjoy these three videos below — before you see them anywhere else.
