Blake Mobley is throwing a Tiger Party. And it’s not at the zoo. A recent East Coast transplant, Blake migrated to Colorado about a year ago. He left behind his well-known band, Damn Right!, and after attempting to maintain a long distance relationship (which we all know, never works), they broke up and Blake began anew with a fresh faced, Colorado collaboration of musicians. They’re still in their honeymoon phase, and with that comes the giddy, high-energy passion that inspires us to do silly things, such as roaring like a tiger. The new project comprised of a “rotating cast of tigers” (from Colorado, with East Coast cameos) who strive to “cause a lil’ ruckus.” And there’s nothing tigers love more than ruckus. Tiger Party has previously played at Cervantes’ and venues in Baltimore, attracting crowds from far and wide who all share a passion for creative alliance of jam-based, electronic music and shaking their rumps to the beat. The distinguishing factor about Tiger Party is that each individual show is guaranteed to have a unique spin, based on the collective chemistry of whoever is playing that night.
This particular show is taking place at Highland Tap & Burger (32nd & Vallejo) at 9pm on Wednesday October 24, alas- the mere one hundred tickets that were on sale for only $10 (including a free beer) have sold out. If you show up and loiter around, perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to score somebody’s extra. Members of Lotus, Octopus Nebula, and the Malah will be sitting in- featuring Mike Rempel on guitar, Fleeb Thomas on bass, Seth Fankhauser on drums, and Blake Mobley himself on keys. This midweek show is guaranteed to be a fierce way to kick off next weekend’s pre-Halloween celebrations. Roar.
