On December 20, 2012, Denver, Colorado was blessed with a show that exhibited the skilled emcees that Colorado has to offer. Colorado’s own Dj Chonz was the house DJ for the concert that was headlined by Colorado powerhouse the Foodchain, and also featured a DJ-only set featuring 9th Wonder.

The opening acts for the show was Jay Carrey, who is both a singer and a rapper. Following Carrey was Myke Charles and Spoke in Wordz who got the crowd moving with their song “4 in da morning”. Myke Charles and Spoke in Wordz had great stage presence, combined with an energy that seemed to directly feed off of the crowd’s vibe. 9th Wonder hit the stage next, delivering an hour-long set which included some of the music he has personally produced, as well as a blend of some of the best music the industry has to offer.

As if that wasn’t enough, shortly after midnight, the Foodchain hit the stage and ignited the crowd. The Foodchain put on an amazing set that featured such songs as “Young Amsterdam” and “Dear Industry.” The performance was highlighted by the group’s insightful lyrics and their phenomenal production. Their stage presence was graciously embraced by the crowd, which seemed to inspire the group to exert all of their passion for their music on stage. The Foodchain definitely put on an entertaining show to bring in what was thought to have been the last day of Earth as we know it. Colorado we need more support for good locally-made music. Stand up and support the movement.
