A message from Dirtwire:
Hey Colorado Fam,
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we unfortunately have to reschedule this week’s Colorado shows. One of our band members has tested positive for Covid-19.
The band and crew are all fully vaccinated, and we’ve all tried our best to stay safe. We really appreciate all the fans we get to perform for and we will be continuing shows as soon as everyone is healthy. Looking forward to rocking with you all again.
Thank you for your understanding and support. Stay safe, family.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the developing circumstances surrounding the Delta Variant of COVID-19, there will be additional health & safety protocols in place for the Animas City Theatre
All patrons and staff entering the venue are asked to provide proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test no older than 72 hours.

Our industry cannot survive another shut down so we thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
Dirtwire stands poised between ancient Mother Earth and modern technology, a blend of ethnomusicology and the psychedelic trance state, gut-bucket delta blues and what the band variously dubs “back-porch space cowboy blues, swamptronica, and electro-twang.” It’s a sound informed by Dirtwire’s travels and performances around the globe, where East meets West and North joins South. From the favelas in Brazil, Femi Kuti’s Shrine in Lagos, Tokyo’s bluegrass clubs, Ayahuasca ceremonies in Central America, Gamelan performances in Bali, desert festivals in the Australian Outback, and the 20th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s modernized new capital Astana, the band spreads its message by building bridges across musical cultures in their own unique way. Dirtwire plays an array of instruments both ancient and modern, including West African kamale ngonis, jaw harps, space fiddles, whamola basses, Rickenbacher electric 12 string guitars, bowed Banjos and mouth harps from around the globe, all interwoven into modern laptop beat creation. Hailing from the underground west coast electronic bass music scene Dirtwire finds itself at the forefront of experimental electronic music production mixing in their wide array of world instruments with sampled beats and 808’s. Dirtwire’s live shows are a communal psychedelic journey, which have been channeled into their latest full-length effort, Electric River.
