45s AGAINST 45, Denver's anti-Trump dance party, returns — and this time it's also a March For Our Lives afterparty. Join DJ Jason Heller (of FUNK CLUB, Mile High Soul Club, Whip It!) as he spins vinyl 45s from the '80s to raise money for the March For Our Lives organization, the force behind the March For Our Lives rallies in Denver and across the country on March 24. Here's the FB event page for Denver's rally: facebook.com/events/1586606621427065
March For Our Lives rose in the wake of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, and the movement seeks to force a legislative solution to America's horrendous epidemic of gun violence. Their mission aligns with 45s Against 45, as Donald Trump has received millions from the NRA and continues to fail when it comes to leadership or even basic humanity regarding this issue. Jason will be spinning the greatest music of the '80s — everything from new wave to pop to hip-hop to post-punk to rock to funk — so come on down after a day of marching and DANCE + RESIST!
Also, PLEASE NOTE: This is a 21+ event, and as such, we're sorry to say that teens won't be admitted, despite the fact that teens are the driving force of the March For Our Lives movement. This 45s Against 45 dance party was originally scheduled as a 21+ event for March 24, long before the tragedy at Stoneman Douglas and the subsequent announcement that March 24 would be the date of the March For Our Lives rallies. But in solidarity with the young people of this country who are bravely taking this life-and-death issue into their own hands, we decided to switch focus and make this event a benefit for them. Thanks for understanding.
Hi-Dive, 7 S. Broadway, Denver, Saturday, March 24, 9pm, 21+, $7 donation at the door (NO presale tickets).
