Elektric Animals Host Youth On Record Fundraiser
Mark your calendars! Denver band Elektric Animals are hosting a fundraiser concert for the next generation of Colorado musicians via one of our most loved local nonprofits, Youth On Record. The event will be held at Globe Hall on Saturday, January 15th, with Elektric Animals themselves playing, along with hellocentral and Sophie Gray. Money from every ticket purchased will benefit YOR, which designs and implements strengths-based, music-centered programs intended to equip young people from historically under-resourced communities with the skills needed to find success in life.
About Elektric Animals
Elektric Animals are a five-piece indie-alternative rock band from Denver. They formed in 2018 from a collection of rock lovers who met through the local music scene and started making sounds reminiscent of Arctic Monkeys, Young the Giant, and The Black Keys. Now hailed as ‘Hometown for the Holidays Champs’ by KTCL Channel 93.3, the band’s newest single “Cheers” was released on October 15th.
Elektric Animals have had a really great year and wanted give back to the community with this event for Youth On Record. If you cannot attend, donations may be made through their Venmo account @elektricanimals.
Formed by four lifelong friends, hellocentral is the product of a culmination of influences, experiences, and a common passion for music. Compared to the likes of Brand New, Turnover, and Blink 182, hellocentral set out to create music that people can not only dance to, but also connect with. Their self-titled full length album was released in 2021.
