Now Playing, a live and recorded music series presented by Denver microbrewery Black Shirt Brewing Company and Denver Film Company, has inked a deal with Colorado Public Television. Ten-minute clips from previous Now Playing tapings are now showing on CPTV's Sounds on 29th music program, which airs Saturdays from 9-10 p.m. Later this year, CPTV will begin airing 30-minute Now Playing segments.
The live music series is also moving to a new, larger venue at the nearby Sidewinder Tavern at 4485 Logan Street in Denver's Globeville neighborhood. Previous shows were held at Black Shirt Brewing, but the series has outgrown the brewery space. The new space accommodates a bigger audience and provides higher production values for the series.
The first installment at the new Sidewinder space is Friday, May 9 at 9 p.m., and will feature Denver's Mike Marchant in the opening slot followed by headlining desert rock act The Strange from New Mexico. Tickets for the May 9 show are $10 in advance ($15 at the door if not sold out) and can be purchased here. Watch previous Now Playing episodes here.
