Boulder-based electronic multi-instrumentalist GRiZ just announced he’s returning with his back-to-back Red Rocks shows this summer. This news comes after the artist posted a spoken word video to his Facebook, changed his profile picture to a blank sheet of paper and seemingly went dark.
Last year, he shook Red Rocks with a double hitter that had everyone in the audience wanting more. He played two completely different sets. One was in typical form — him, his computer and his saxophone. The other however brought on a 12-piece live band — a distinct switch up that emanated anything but repetition. This August, he’s doing it again. July 13 and 14 GRiZ will be back at our favorite outdoor amphitheater for two nights of magic to remind us all why we love jamming out under the Colorado sky. July 13 will mark his return with a live band.
Grant Kwiecinski (GRiZ) first became popular in 2011 with the release of his debut album End of the World Party. That release attracted the attention of big names in the game such as Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Gramatik and Big Gigantic, to name a few. The local creative is beloved in The Mile High and across the state. Since the release of his most recent album Good Will Prevail in 2016 (plus a remix album in 2017) Kwiecinski has performed across Colorado, and the nation, and even made a surprise appearance for Winter on the Rocks in January.
Now, on the heels of his “Good Will Continue U.S. Tour” and annual charity fund GRiZMAS, he’s announcing the Red Rocks return. In addition, we recently released the news that GRiZ is featured on our new Colorado compilation vinyl 303 Music Vol. 1 benefitting Youth on Record.
