MORE20 wrap up part III - Feat. KRS-One and The Pharcyde

As the in-store activities wrapped up for the Saturday portion of MORE20 weekend, the focus had begun to shift to the MORE20 music event!  Myxed Up MORE20 Extract Artists Harvest Fest promised to be an incredible night of live reggae and real hip-hop!  As to be expected, the event did not disappoint.  The evening music event, brought to you by Myxed Up Creations and Yolo Rum, took place at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom.  The event took over both sides of the venue as Cervantes The Other Side hosted the reggae and dancehall acts, and the Grand Ballroom was on lock for all of the hip-hop.  The whole venue was rockin', the place was wall to wall people, and the sights, sounds, and smells of a party filled the air!

 

          

 

DJ BushyBush warmed up the Other Side crowd with some reggae and dancehall classics in advance of the headliners.  And then it was time for the heavy hitters to take the stage.  International recording artist Mr. Vegas in his first Denver appearance, as well as Edley Shine of Born Jamericans took their turns delighting a packed dance floor.  

                     

 

Meanwhile, back in the Ballroom, the crowd warmed up with Oriiion.  After Oriiion set the stage, it was up to BurntMD to keep the crowd moving, followed up by DJ Uplifter and Selecta Nikka T who all brought their own energy to the show with their mix of reggae, top 40, and hip-hop influence.  As the focus of the crowd started to shift from the party to the show on center stage, you could feel the energy in the air as the crowd started to press to the front for their opportunity to rock out with hip-hop legends Pharcyde!  Touring as Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde Live, they whipped the crowd up into a frenzy, and ran through a laundry list of tracks from one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time, with classics such as "Passin' Me By", "Oh Sh*t", "Ya Mama", and "Soul Flower", all from Bizarre Ride II.  They then proceeded down memory lane with a performance of "Runnin'" from the album Labcabincalifornia, as well as other hip-hop anthems such as "OPP" by Naughty by Nature, and "Scenario" by Tribe Called Quest.

 

After the Pharcyde, it was time for KRS-One, "The Teacha", to get class in session.  KRS opened his set with a freestyle, and then got the crowd involved, as we all joined in by shouting that the real hip-hop is "Ova Here".  From there we started our journey with KRS-One into tracks like "Step Into A World" and "MC's Act Like They Don't Know".  His set always seemed to push the perfect blend of old, new, and unrehearsed, and true to his conscious style navigated in and out of planned and unplanned verses and live off the top segues through many of the tracks that brought him to the level of hip-hop elite.  With a razor sharp clarity, detailed annunciation, and perfect definition his voice pushed the crowd forward with more of the classics, from the echoing shouts of "Sound Of Da Police", to other favorites like "The MC", and Boogie Down Productions hit "Criminal Minded".  KRS-One was a true master of ceremonies as he continually kept the crowd hyped and involved, and urged his fans to be a part of the experience. 

 

All in all MORE20 was an incredible weekend long experience!  With so much going on in the stores, and then an amazing music event to tie the weekend together, who could ask for anything more!?!?  And thanks so much to all of the Myxed Up Family that celebrated with us, and made MORE20 a special weekend that was so much fun for everyone!  It makes all of us here at Myxed Up Creations very excited for next years installments of 4/20 and MORE20!  This year is going to be hard to beat, but something tells me that we can do it!  Stay tuned Myxed Up Nation!

MORE20 wrap up part II - Feat. Edley Shine of Born Jamericans

Finally, after much anticipation, #MORE20 weekend was finally upon us!  We had reached the official halfway point to the next 4/20, and the celebration was on!  The stores were primed, and the Myxed Up Crew was stoked!  And just like Santa Claus departing on Christmas morning, Dabbin' Dan was off in the Road "Tripper" to deliver goodies to all the other Myxed Up stores!

 

          

                           

 

It was a beautiful, crisp, fall Saturday morning in Denver, and across the state.  You couldn't have asked for better weather to celebrate with.  The sidewalk sale was kickin'.  Wacky Inflatable Arm Man began his signature dance as the DJ's set up their gear.  And Myxed Up family turned out in droves to enjoy another MORE20 event.  The first customers through the door were greeted with free Jah-Wick samples.  And the first bunches of raffle tickets started to make their way into circulation.

 

          

 

          

 

At 2:00 in the afternoon at Myxed Up Denver we welcomed friend of the store, and local glass blower, Dave Armour.  Dave was nice enough to come by the store to be a part of the MORE20 festivities.  We set Dave up with some space to meet friends and fans, and talk about the art of blowing glass with those curious about this unique talent and skill.  He had a video set up on his laptop showing of his skill at work in the studio, and had some of his recent pieces set up for everyone to enjoy.  Everyone was truly amazed with his work, and appreciated the opportunity to enjoy his art, and ask questions about his process and methods through all his years of experience.

 

          

          

 

Another highlight, and customer favorite of our MORE20 and 4/20 celebrations, are the Myxed Up Creations Grab Bags.  This years grab bags were sponsored by Glenn Glass, and included goodies from Glenn Glass, Vape Ape, Mean Clean, and Myxed Up Creations.

 

         

         

 

At Myxed Up Denver and Myxed Up Aurora, we were very happy to welcome massage girls, courtesy of Detoxify Brand Herbal Cleanse!  The girls were there to provide a relaxing, detoxifying massage for any of the Myxed Up Family that needed to relax, unwind, and take a load off!

 

          

 

We were also very pleased to welcome Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs to keep everyone fed and energized!  Biker Jim's does some serious grilling.  And when I say "Gourmet Dogs", I mean "GOURMET DOGS"!  With dog options like Alaska Reindeer, Elk Jalapeno Cheddar, Southwest Buffalo (don't worry, there were veggie dogs too)...  These ain't no Oscar Mayer Wieners!

 

      

 

As the evening started to close in, it was about time to get down to some serious business!  In advance of his appearance at the MORE20 music event at Cervantes, Edley Shine of Born Jamericans stopped in for some meet and greet action.  After getting a tour of the store (with a prolonged stop in the plasma pipe room), Edley Shine had a chance to meet some fans and talk a little reggae and dancehall!  He signed some autographs, posed for some pictures, and had a couple laughs.  At long last, it was time for one of the most eagerly anticipated moments of the weekend!  The MORE20 raffle, hosted and MC'd by the one and only Edley Shine himself!  This years stash of prizes was off the chain.  At every Myxed Up location, we had four different prizes to be won.  Fourth prize was a Myxed Up Creations gift certificate for $100.  Third prize was a Vape Ape pen kit, with a Custom Glass Globe by Smash Glass.  Second prize was a Left Coast Glass combo prize pack.  And the grand prize was an XBox360, with Grand Theft Auto V, Halo 4, Tomb Raider (and a bonus controller)!  As the final purchases were completed, and the final raffle tickets were handed out, everyone gathered around to see who was going to be walking away with the booty!

 

     

     

 

And the winners were!  Actually these people might have won more than most, after scoring the raffle prizes, but in reality everyone was a winner.  While the raffle winners basked in their glory, those that didn't win lined up to receive their free Myxed Up Creations MORE20 t-shirts.  And as an added bonus, for everyone that stuck around, everyone got a Biker Jim's Dog on the house, so no one left empty handed!  Not bad consolation prizes.  And everyone walked away with a smile on their face!

 

     

     

 

After everything was said and done, it was easy to see that this MORE20 was a huge success!  From Myxed Up Creations Denver, Myxed Up Creations Aurora, Myxed Up Creations Colorado Springs, and Myxed Up Creations Pueblo we would most of all like to say thanks to all of you out there, the Myxed Up Family.  More than a couple times I had someone say to me, "Thanks to everyone that makes MORE20 happen"!  We all make MORE20 happen.  We're just running around being Myxed Up, and doing our thing, so we're making MORE20 happen.  It's the whole Myxed Up Family that really makes MORE20 happen though.  Without you guys out there and your support, there is no Myxed Up.  If there's no "you", and there's no "Myxed Up", then there's no "MORE20", and there's no "4/20", and there's no movement!  It's all of us that keep the movement moving!  So much love for all the support, and we're looking forward to see what we can all pull together for 4/20, and MORE20 next year!

MORE20 wrap up part I - Feat. Krazy Drayz of Das EFX

MORE20 weekend was a lot of fun for everyone!  We had so much love from our Myxed Up Family and friends!  We hope everyone had as much fun as we did!  MORE20 ended up kicking off a little early on Friday night as we had a special guest appearance at Myxed Up Denver by hip-hop legend Krazy Drayz of Das EFX.  Das EFX was in town for a show that night at Cervantes with Salt N Pepa, and Krazy Drayz was kind enough to stop in and say hi to some of his fans here in the 303!

 

                   

 

After kickin' for a little bit, and shooting the breeze about his recent work, like his most recent solo release called "Showtime", or past work like hip-hop classics "They Want EFX" or "Mic Checka", it was time for Drayz to head out to the show.  On his way out, he couldn't help but snatch up a vaporizer, so we directed him to the best vaporizer you can buy, THe Can Vapor System!  Finally after making a couple adjustments to his wardrobe for the show, we bid farewell to a real hip-hop legend!

 

                                              

 

 

Oh, and by the way, Das EFX killed it later that night.  And Krazy Drayz was reppin' for the Myxed Up Family!

 

                          

                                                 

 

 

Check out a track from his most recent project "Showtime", at fine record stores everywhere!

Jerome Baker Is The Man

 

The Jerome Baker in store event was great!  We truly appreciate Mr. Jason Harris for stopping by the store and spending time with everyone.  In town for Widespread Panic at Red Rocks, he took time out of his trip to make an appearance at Myxed Up Creations Denver location.  He got to meet a lot of fans, shake a lot of hands, and sign or engrave a number of pieces and posters.  Not only is Jerome Baker possibly the biggest name in, the somewhat brief history, of the functional glass as art movement.  He's also a great guy in general.  It was awesome watching his interaction with fans, telling stories about all his adventures in his life of blowing glass.  The man has been just about everywhere, and blown glass in the craziest of places.  From traveling around following the Grateful Dead and blowing glass on tour, to blowing glass with other legends in the industry, like Bob Snodgrass, when the movement was really first underway.  He's been flown all over the country and blown glass out of hotels, and he's been commissioned to create pieces for some of the biggest names in movies, music, and art.  Sure enough, his stories lived up to the billing of being one of the most recognized names in glass blowing.

 

    

 

We had the opportunity to talk to him about some of his other projects that he was a part of, or continues to be a part of.  He spoke with us about many endeavors like his Connoisseur Kulture (CK) Expo, an exclusive industry expo highlighting underground pop culture and products.  As well as a line of reusable art inspired water bottles, Binger Springs.  And not to mention Jerome Baker Decks, a skateboard deck, clothing and gear company that saw very mixed results.  Never the less, it goes with out saying, he keeps himself pretty busy, and very involved with the important happenings and people in the the industry.

 

                        

 

 

Finally, with much anticipation, 4:20 rolled around, and it was time to do the drawing for the engraved JBD Scientific rigs!

 

                      

 

Congratulations to the winners!  Thanks again to Jason Harris AKA Jerome Baker!  And a big thanks to everyone that came down to enjoy this unique opportunity to meet a true legend in the game!

Jerome Baker In Store Appearance This Saturday, June 29th, at Myxed Up Denver!

Myxed Up Creations is happy to welcome Jason Harris AKA Jerome Baker to our  Denver location, this Saturday, June 29th!

 

 

There is a lot of history in the Modern Glass Pipe Movement and Jerome Baker is synonymous with the ROOTS of this movement.

Always a big name in handmade, American glass waterpipes, Jerome Baker Designs is a pioneer in interplanetary glass works.  Jerome Baker Designs, Inc., began creative endeavors in the art of functional glass tubeware in 1991. Jerome Baker was the first to design a durable flame-worked glass waterpipe that was both functionally reliable and visually exquisite. This waterpipe, which changed color when you used it, was the catalyst, the seed from which flowered a family of smoking devices that evolved in quality, artistry, and ingenuity over the years.

The event this Saturday will include a meet-and-greet, as well as an opportunity to have NEW, UNUSED pieces engraved by the man himself, in person. For those unable to buy a new piece, Myxed Up will be providing posters to the first 200 people, for you to have signed.

The event will be from 1:00pm - 4:00pm.  Be sure to get there early to secure your poster, while supplies last.

 

We will also be having a raffle, in which you can win a signed Jerome Baker piece!
