Final Cut Pro X Workshop

Letter from the Executive Director
If you haven't seen how our First Friday events have blossomed with the Open Music Sessions, in partnership with Greater Than Collective and the Westword, be sure to join us this Friday. Beyond the usual music and comedy you've come to expect, we'll also be hosting a Lot Party together with large number of community partners.

The Social Enterprise Alliance will be here to promote their upcoming SEA Summit, and our friends at Denver Gives Week, will also be here to talk about their free, invaluable conference for nonprofits, August 10 - 15 in downtown Denver. If you are with a local nonprofit organization, be sure to check out both these great opportunities happening right here in Denver. We hope to see you there!
Open Music Sessions and Lot Party at Denver Open Media, August 7
On the first Friday of each month, DOM hosts a community event with local performance groups, musical acts and nonprofit partners. These events are broadcast live on Comcast Channel 57 in Denver as well as streamed on DOM's website.  Events are cablecast and streamed live in Denver Open Media's Studio A.

Join DOM for this month's Open Music Sessions on Friday, August 7, featuring a live musical performance by The Still Tide.

The Still Tide
Having left behind New York City's jagged cityscape for the mountains of Denver's skyline, indie rock trio The Still Tide has at last found a place to call home. Written and recorded in the aftermath of the move, their new EP Half Empty Rooms refracts the grit and urgency of city life through the lens of Colorado's clean air and open space, creating a sound that occupies the liminal area between folk song and shoegaze, aspen trees and streetlights.

The Lot Party begins at 6 pm. Join us for this FREE neighborhood event, complete with food, drinks and a bouncy castle!

Please join our Facebook event and share us!
