Kicking off on November 8th, 2019, Red Bull Presents Detour’s 5 Pointers – is a month-long musical journey from internationally renowned Denver artist Detour, aka Thomas Evans, set in a futuristic and interactive environment. Taking over RedLine Denver in the thriving RiNO neighborhood, Red Bull Presents Detour’s 5 Pointers will serve as an introduction to an interpretation of the future of music through storytelling elements, live performances from the 5 Pointers – a band of Detour’s musical collaborators brought together to interpret and experiment with what music will sound like in the future -- and a collection of memorabilia that will bridge the gap of time in this experimental presentation. Throughout the month, Detour and the 5 Pointers band will host multiple performances and artist talks to further create an experience that allows the audience to engage in conversation. The first artist talk and 5 Pointers performance will take place on opening night, November 8th, 2019. Detour will host a stand-alone artist talk on November 13th, and the 5 Pointers will join him for a performance and artist talk on November 22nd and December 6th, 2019. Red Bull Presents: Detour’s 5 Pointers is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 11 am – 5 pm from November 8th through December 6th, 2019. Additional information and the full schedule of performances and artist talks is available at redbull.com/detours5pointers.
Based in the year 2119, Detour’s environment transports the audience to a museum opening dedicated to a fictional band formed the turn of the 22nd century. Featuring non-traditional and innovative instruments, envisioned and created by Detour and utilizing mixed media, the 5 Pointers will compose original music as an interpretation and exploration of what music will sound like 100 years from now, providing attendees a fully immersive journey through art, narrative, and sound. Fictional artifacts and memorabilia – including Grammy’s, ticket stubs, jerseys, magazines and more - personify Detour’s futuristic world further illustrating the story of the 5 Pointers and their musical journey. Detour has invited Denver musicians Felix Fast4ward, Venus Cruz, Carl Carrell, and DJ Check One (Dameion Hines) to collaborate with him as the 5 Pointers band. Each musician will perform in character, fully transforming into their 5 Pointers personas. Felix Fast4ward performs as Wex, Venus Cruz as Lola Devine, Carl Carrell as Carl Remington, and DJ Check One takes on King Tempo – and together they are the 5 Pointers.
