Levitt Pavilion Denver says
FREE CONCERT at Denver's Civic Center Park, featuring Grammy nominated artist, John Fullbright!! This is the last free concert in a series of five presented by Levitt Pavilion Denver, will feature local Denver food trucks Lena B Bar-B-Que and What Would Cheesus Do, and will be selling ice cold brews from Great Divide Brewing Co.

John Fulbright got his start at the legendary Blue Door listening room in Oklahoma City. It was there that he recorded a live album and found his base, opening for many other writers including fellow Oklahomans Kevin Welch and Jimmy Webb. His 2012 studio debut, From the Ground Us, received a GRAMMY nomination for Americana Album of the Year, and later that year he won ASCAP’s Harold Adamson Award for lyric writing. In 2014, Fullbright released the critically acclaimed Songs, toured all over America and the UK, and appeared on “Late Night with David Letterman.”

Strange Americans
In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.. Strange Americans first began in 2009 through a series of Craigslist ads and mutual acquaintances. The group, which released its much applauded debut full-length Royal Battle in 2012, released its sophomore album That Kind of Luster in September of 2014 . The ten-song, 45-minute rocker which the group began working on in the summer of 2013, showcases a band that has dialed in an authentic, raucous live show and somehow convey that same energy in the studio as well.
