Byrners unite: Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom is bringing it home with a Talking Heads cover party by local funk favorites Juno What?! tomorrow. Pick me up and turn me around. It’s going to be a freak show, just like David intended.
The trio consists of Joey Porter (keyboards, talk box) and Dave Watts (drums, samples) from the Motet, and Steve Watkins (keyboards, talk box, bass), and their “high energy booty jams” are well known amongst Denver locals.
Here’s a tip: if you haven’t yet been to one of Denver’s iconic Motet Halloween concerts, here’s your chance for a cheap preview. The extended version of Juno What?! (Motet) have thrown down some amazing cover shows in Denver; they’ve done great honor to the likes of Madonna, Prince, MJ and (of course) they threw down a pretty Talking Heads number in October of ’08–arguably one of their best.
Doors open at 8pm, show starts at 9; look out for pirates. Hopefully, they’ll have us all home by morning.
