Denver’s annual Colorado CRUSH (Creative Rituals Under Social Harmony) art festival has grown exponentially since its comparatively small beginnings as a local event back in 2000. Now in its eight year Colorado CRUSH 2017 has grown into a large scale, vibrant, fun, annual aerosol art festival attracting artists and art fans from all over. Happening all this week (Sept 11 - 17), Colorado CRUSH 2017  features 130 different artists. While its participants are predominantly local, many of the CRUSH artists are invited in from around the USA as well as from other countries. These artists’ work fill walls all over Denver’s RiNo district and beyond as outlined in this CRUSH map. Like the city of Denver, CRUSH is a laid back, warm, welcoming and unpretentious affair. Even when CRUSH is not taking place as a city Denver is visibly welcoming to outdoor and people with spray cans in hand, unlike so many other cities.

Still from the video for Radiohead's "Lift" from : OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017
(also avail 3LP set as well as LP box set with hardcover book)


Yesterday’s popular YouTube upload of the Oscar Hudson directed music video (see below) for Radiohead'’s “Lift” - one of the outtake tracks from the band’s 1997 album OK Computer- was a reminder of just how deep the bonus tracks go on the band’s recently released 20 year anniversary reissue of the 1997 album: OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017 (also avail 3LP set as well as LP box set with hardcover book). 

Upon its initial June release, Amoeba described the many new bonus tracks as, “an entire album of material recorded in the period of OK Computer’s conception which didn’t make the cut” with “live cuts, eight B-sides from the OK Computer-era singles, and three previously unreleased studio recordings. These three songs: “Lift,” “Man Of War,” and “I Promise” have been previously referred to as the holy grail of unreleased Radiohead material.”
