The indigenous communities and peoples of North America have constantly been berated, disrespected, and underrepresented in all aspects of our current socio-political climate, especially when it comes to the entertainment industry. When the founding members of the electronic music group, A Tribe Called Red, realized that their hometown city of Ottawa organized dance nights for every culture except the Native American community, which was prevalent to the area, the collective took things into their own hands and curated their own electronic dance music fusing elements of hip-hop and their traditional powwow hymns and chants.
Since then, the group has single-handedly become the representatives of the indigenous community amongst the dance club scene and activists for their land and people alike. A Tribe Called Red has released a total of three studio albums and four EPs all of which have successfully propelled them into the forefront of the DJ realm. Now, the remaining two members Tim "2oolman" Hill a descendant of the Mohawk, Six Nations of the Grand River, and Ehren "Bear Witness" Thomas, a descendant of the Cayuga First Nation, are taking their talents to Colorado for a one-time event residents of Denver will not want to miss.
On April 24, A Tribe Called Red will be performing at the Bluebird Theatre in Denver, CO at 8:00 p.m. local time. Tickets for the one-off event can be purchased, here. Tickets for the live performance will be available for purchase on Friday, Feb. 22, at 10 a.m. PST. Please get your tickets while supplies last (Tickets).
