Illiterate had an idea. It was simple, sexy and subversive: invite local musicians to cover the material of other local artists in a one night only auditory orgy.

All will be answered on Saturday June 6 at Denver Does Denver, as twenty + artists engage in musical intercourse, interpretting the songs of bands past and present, between two neighboring venues and three stages.
