Helikon is pleased to host Florea and Brianna Straut in July for our Summer Music Series!
Friday, July 20. Doors at 6, show at 7:30.
The gallery space will open up for three performances in June, July and August during three different exhibitions on view, highlighting local musicians, encouraging a diverse use of art spaces, and tapping into Denver’s thriving audiences of art-lovers and music-lovers alike. In addition to the exhibitions on view in the main gallery and annex gallery, the Summer Music Series runs in conjunction with a music-themed exhibition on view in the retail space called ‘Audio/Visual.’ Chosen for their overlapping interests in visual art and music, the artists featured in ‘Audio/Visual’ draw further connections between the sounds and images that inspire a diverse creative community.
Etched into the ebbs and tides of Florea’s dark + delirious Americana rock is a traveler’s wistful longing. Spinning tales from desert dreams to sinners in the swamp, Florea’s songs of honey and venom are just that: both sides of the coin, light and dark, lost and found. Featuring Megan Fong on vox/guitar, Alex Ferreira on vox/drums, and Eli Saragoussi on vox/bass.
About Brianna Straut:
“Masterfully blends crooning and lullaby, tinged with grace, humor, and aplomb.”
– Joliene Adams, bolderbeat
Brianna Straut moved from West Texas to Colorado to pursue her hunger for the mountains and a new music scene. Playing with a couple bands in Denver, Tomahawk Fox and Bison Bone, she stays busy in her free time drinking home crafted brews and supporting local acts. “Down On Franklin Street” digs deep into those Texas roots and gypsy soul.
