Doomtree Listening Party @ Declaration Brewing

Declaration Brewing, 2030 S. Cherokee St.

The folks over at Declaration Brewing in Overland (Denver) love Doomtree, a rap and hip hop group that will be performing tonight at the Gothic Theatre. They love them so much that they are throwing a pre-show listening party in their taproom for it (it also helps that the Gothic is approximately 1.9 miles away from Declaration).
