Boulder Box Set features two free performances this week

The Denver-based band The Congress (left) performs in ATLAS this week on Wednesday while Ian Cooke (right) brings his avant-pop sound to ATLAS on Thursday.

The Congress performs Wednesday; Ian Cooke on Thursday

Boulder Box Set has a double feature in store this week: The rock group The Congress will perform a one-hour set at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12; singer, songwriter, pianist and cellist Ian Cooke performs at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13.

Boulder Box Set is a music/entertainment series that features performances captured live in high definition video at the ATLAS Institute’s Black Box theater.

Audience members experience high-quality entertainment within the excitement of a live recording session. Seating is limited and first-come, first-served. Audiences are advised to arrive at least 15 minutes early.

The Congress, which features Jonathan Meadows on bass, Scott Lane on guitar and Mark Levy on drums, is a rock ‘n roll band with a spirit rooted just south of the Mason-Dixon Line. The band mixes in soul and grit and its time on the road with 60 years of purely American music to create a unique and memorable sound.

Featured Thursday is Cooke, who is a cellist, pianist, singer and songwriter who has been voted Best Avant-Pop performer by Westword Magazine for three years and has appeared in SPIN magazine, finished #1 in the Denver Post Music Poll in 2009, and has toured in the US and Australia.
