Celebration of Electronic Music & Dance Party with Buddha Bomb in the Lumonics Mind Spa, Dorothy Tanner’s site-specific art installation at the McNichols Civic Center Building.

Friday, Feb 2nd from 7:30-11pm.

Buddha Bomb is the host of Electronic Air on KGNU Radio & (it is the longest running online electronic music radio show in Colorado) and if you have interest in the history of electronic music, all of us at Lumonics couldn’t think of a better messenger than Buddha Bomb.

Big thank you to Shanna Shelby, Program Administrator of Denver Arts & Venues, and the Cultural Partnership Program of the McNichols Building.
