21 | Artist Highlight Series with Big Dopes
Welcome to the Rocky Mtn Mixdown podcast where we discuss and document the making of the Colorado music scene. On this week's episode, hosts Kenny Vasko and Liz Vasko are paling around with former Dog House members and current Dog House hall-of-famers Eddie and Justin of Colorado-based Big Dopes. Big Dopes' music evokes the loose, lighthearted feel of 90s alternative and indie with detours into loungey 60s-indebted pop. Lead songwriter Eddie uses a playful, conversational baritone to sing through neuroses about long-distance relationships, being a houseguest, and wasting money on busted headphones. Veteran drummer Ricky lends a steady groove and harmonies, and Justin's bass often takes the lead, playing energetic, melodic lines. Paul, who joined in 2019, plays tasteful guitar, violin, and keys. Big Dopes' second album Destination Wedding came out in November 2021 and was recorded in 2020 during the heart of the pandemic. The band recorded the album in Denver while two bandmates were living out-of-state, making the recording process an "interesting" but also deeply fulfilling experience. The band recently played their first shows at Denver's iconic Bluebird Theater (with Tokyo Police Club) and Gothic Theater, both of which being major achievements and benchmarks in the group's career. Big Dopes is currently working on a vinyl release for the new album, (projected for this summer) and continue to get together for weekly writing sessions to work on new music! If you're listening from the (currently frigid) midwest, look out for Big Dopes' spring midwest tour April 7th through 16th! You can find the Rocky Mtn Mixdown podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and at doghousemusic.com/rockymtnmixdown. As always, thank you to Dog House Music's own Ty Gallaway for producing this and every episode.

20 | Local Scene Check-In | Jan 2022
Welcome to the Rocky Mtn Mixdown podcast where we discuss and document the making of the Colorado music scene. Welcome to 2022!! This will be the second year of the Rocky Mtn Mixdown podcast and we’re planning to keep up our twice-a-month releases schedule including a monthly Local Scene Check-In episode with details on upcoming local shows, new releases, and new content from local bands and artists, plus a Highlight episode each month where we talk with and ask deeply personal questions about a local band, artist, producer, engineer, agent, record label, or venue. Today’s Local Scene Check-In for January 2022 is LIVE with lots of banter and bad jokes from our Dog House staff crew. The Colorado local music scene is staying high-energy despite setbacks from Omicron/COVID-19, tragic local gun violence, and a hugely destructive fire that nearly took out our studio! We truly believe that live music helps all of us feel our feelings, heal together, and re-energize in order to do the work we have before us. In the words of our heroes/musicians of Los Mocochetes, “music is medicine, laughter is medicine, community is medicine.” Head out to a local show, buy a ticket, get a drink, send a social media shout-out, donate to help those suffering, and come together to hear, love, and support some music/musicians from our local scene. You can find the Rocky Mtn Mixdown podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and at doghousemusic.com/rockymtnmixdown. As always, thank you to Dog House engineer Ty Gallaway for producing this and every episode.

19 | Non-Dudes in Music Series with Sarah Mount
Welcome to the Rocky Mtn Mixdown podcast where we discuss and document the making of the Colorado music scene. We're in the studio with the one-and-only Sarah Mount, a queen of the local music scene in the Denver/Boulder world and saxophonist extraordinaire. We've been chomping at the bit to have Sarah on the podcast because she has so much wisdom to share about what it looks like to be a working, gigging, make-a-living-from-music musician in Colorado. She has tips for booking professional gigs, valuing your skills by asking for reasonable compensation, branding and marketing yourself as a professional musician, and the etiquette of interacting with bookers, venue owners, and other industry folks. Be sure to look for Sarah's monthly residency at Dazzle with Sarah Mount and the Rushmores (sponsored by KUVO Jazz 89.3 and Sierra Nevada) last Fridays of the month starting in January. Tickets for Friday January 28th are on sale here! You can find the Rocky Mtn Mixdown podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and at doghousemusic.com/rockymtnmixdown.
