Denver hip-hop group, the Foodchain, to headline the Bluebird Theater on ThursdayBy Ru Johnson | December 19th, 2012 | No Comments »
Denver-based, live performance hip-hop band, The Foodchain, will culminate the yearâ€™s hard work with a headlining performance at the Bluebird TheaterÂ on Thursday night. F.L., C-1, ChampSoundKillaBlack and Mic Coats partnered with KMG Studios this summer to release a song a week for a project dubbed the â€śSummer Series.â€ť
With a little help from super producer 9th Wonderâ€™s opening deejay set, the band will take the stage with new drummer Rob Turner to perform tracks from the outfitâ€™s catalogue. Mic Coats, one of the groupâ€™s performers, said this show will showcase the bandâ€™s growth musically and personally.
â€śWeâ€™ve worked really hard to get to the point where we can stand alone. Weâ€™ve been the favorite opening act for the past few years but weâ€™ve worked hard to step out on our own. This will be a test to see if the cityâ€™s going to show up for us,” Coats said. “Weâ€™ve been putting in a lot of work to represent the city well so weâ€™re anxious to see if it will pay off.”
The â€śSummer Seriesâ€ť allowed The Foodchain to explore new and more progressive styles of hip-hop. Mic Coats said itâ€™s been a personal journey.
â€śThis show is a stepping stone in the journey. The music is truly amazing and for me, I look at it from a personal point of view. It affects my personal life, and the lives of all of us in the group,” Coats said.
Other supporting acts include SP Double, Myke Charles, DJ Chonz and Spoke In Wordz. Doors open at 8:30p.m., showtime is 9p.m. This show is 16 and older. Purchase tickets here.
