This Saturday afternoon at 5:00pm the city is Denver will suffer an invasion. A small invasion, but one that should be watched closely for clues as to the future of our culture, our families, our very lives. This Saturday the Inactivists launch their third release, “The Dreaded Concept Album.”
The makeup of the band should give you some sense of the risk involved; any band with a clarinet, a theremin, and a ukulele is bound to be dangerous. And then there are the song titles. For instance, I’m oddly drawn to “Bearded Nuns in Bondage,” which I just gave a listen on their myspace page; I found it to be a pleasant uptempo ditty on a topic I’ve never spent a lot of time thinking about.
On the other hand, I have no idea what caused them to write “fuck you singer songwriter.” And today is Pete Seeger’s birthday. The shame. These may be the geekiest creatures on the planet. The show is at the Larimer Lounge. The Secret Service should be notified. More information and free tickets are available on the Inactivists website.
