This Saturday night in Denver, Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom will be transformed into an exotic wonderland crawling with acrobats, aerial artists, stilt walkers, fire dancers, contortionists, snake charmers, sword swallowers, even a bearded lady, all performing to the sounds of a live electronic rock band. This musical circus goes by the name of Lucent Dossier Experience and strives to “shed the spells that society has accidentally cast upon us and find out who we really are and what we want from this incredible world of possibilities.”
The costumed performers, adorned in tribal body art and recycled animal bones and feathers, treat audience members to an interactive experience by offering tarot readings, herbal elixirs and temporary tattoos.
Opening up for the Lucent Dossier Experience is Welder, Love and Light, and Lynx. Welder, who also plays under the alias Eskmo, is a San Francisco-based producer who rocks the stage in a welding mask (which helps to differentiate between the shows he plays as Eskmo). Welder’s ambient, downtempo style sounds more fluid and dream like than his style as Eskmo, which makes for a better fit on tour with acts like Luccent Dossier and Love and Light.
Love and Light has performed on the stages of festivals like Shambhala, Ultra, Coachella, and the place where the DJ duo began, Burning Man. Just like their name, Love and Light is known for providing a fresh and uplifting take on bass music, inspired by the transformation of their lives from many years of visiting the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.
Lynx, a 28-year-old singer-songwriter, originally hails from Colorado but currently resides in the Bay Area. She has collaborated onstage with Matisyahu, Beats Antique, Bassnectar and more at festivals like Coachella and Austin City Limits. Lynx combines elements of multiple genres like electronica, folk and even indie pop to create a unique and cutting edge sound.
