Experience the power of community with alternative hip-hop band Flobots, during two stage appearances on the Western Slope.

Shows are set for 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at Mesa Theater, 538 Main St., in Grand Junction, and at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Paradise Theatre, 215 Grand Ave., in Paonia. Tickets for the Mesa Theater show cost $20. Tickets for the Paonia show costs $17 in advance or $20 the day of the show.

The Denver-based band is “dedicated to creating, performing, and finding anthems for a better world,” a news release said.

In its effort to celebrate social connectedness through music, Flobots released its new song, “Rattle the Cage,” on Nov. 9 “in response to the uncertainty felt by so many Americans the day after Election Day.” 

“Like their music, Flobots’ live shows are a call to action — an invitation to elevate above the fear and divisiveness of this election year and experience the power of community,” the news release said.

The band formed almost 12 years ago and has released three full-length albums. They have toured the United States and Europe, and have been featured on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”

As part of its socially conscious impact, the band launched a project in 2014 called NOENEMIES that involved a “two-year series of community workshops and trainings designed to reclaim and practice collective singing and songwriting as a tool for transformative social movements.”

An album by the same name was inspired by experiences from the project.

Learn about the band at flobots.com. Call 773-1775 or go to mesatheater.com for information about the Grand Junction show. Call 527-6610 or go to paradiseofpaonia.com for information about the Paonia show.
