We're coming back to Red Rocks on Thursday, July 30th, and this time with the Colorado Symphony! Ripe, with their funk & horns, will be opening up, and one of Colorado’s newest talents, 14 year old Emelise, is kicking the evening off.
The insane beauty of Red Rocks, the energy and singing from our Colorado fans, AND the Colorado Symphony... all coming together at once?! Not sure we can imagine a more magical and epic night for a Dispatch show!
Red Rocks on its own always feels like a sacred place to perform, but to think of going up there and adding an orchestra to the band is another ball of wax. We just cannot wait for this one.
In honor of Human Rights Day, our new song “Year of the Woman” is out now. Watch the music video below, directed, edited, and produced by Genéa Gaudet, or listen here.
This song came out of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings... we were shocked and upset to see the polarization around a woman brave enough to share her story of sexual abuse and that her abuser was ultimately named Supreme Court Justice.
Brett Kavanaugh is just one of many men whose stories of abusing their power and women have come to light recently…
We’re two white men who are in proximity to the problem, and we want to use our platform, as Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley says, to raise the people closest to the pain to power. In our evolution, we’ve been lucky to learn from the amazing women in our lives and in the public sphere. We’re just now grasping how different their reality is.
Our society needs less ego and more of a nurturing spirit - we need more women in positions of power. The time for gender equity is far overdue.
With that in mind, we want to learn more from badass women and girls leading change in their communities. We hope to bring you, our fans, on this journey with us and get your help. We'll be doing interviews every other month in 2020 with Calling All Crows to highlight women and girls leading in their fields.

We hope you enjoy this song and video that share some of what we learned from the powerful women speaking up about rampant abuse. We tried to convey the impact watching this unfold from the sidelines has had on us. We owe a debt to these women who put their own safety and comfort at risk to try and make a better, violence-free world for us all, and we’re excited to follow their lead and contribute to the movement.
