Scene on Colfax - The Congress

The Congress had their CD release party last night to celebrate the release of their debut full-length album Whatever You Want. The show was packed with people like it was a National Act and excitement was high for this electrifying Denver-based band. I caught up with The Congress' guitarist Scott Lane before the show, and Demon Funkies' Ryan Chrys snapped this shot:

Reviews of the new album have been stellar so far. Here's one from Westword.com: "On the Congress's self-titled debut EP, the act drew on music of all sorts of styles and the result was a sound that was expressive and confident, subtle in parts and brazen in others. With the act's debut long-player, Whatever You Want, the outfit comes through with twice the swagger and sounds even more rocking and refined as it mixes in elements of guitar-heavy Southern rock infused with vibrant vocals and a heaping helping of soul."
