Benefit Concert for New Hinterland Art Space
Pan Astral will play a special benefit concert June 1st at Globe Hall in Denver, featuring Luke Miller of Lotus, and Johnny 5 & Brer Rabbit of Flobots! The special guests will be sitting in with Pan Astral for a one-of-a-kind show to benefit the New Hinterland Art Space, a longtime friend of Pan Astral and mainstay in the Denver arts scene. Tickets are on sale now HERE!
As Denver's River North Arts District ("RiNo") has experienced a huge growth spurt in recent years, many of its beloved art galleries have been priced out, making way for large developers to move in. The irony is that many of us move to RiNo for the very culture these now forgotten institutions had to offer. Hinterland was one such place. By offering a unique environment for avant garde and installation artists whose work was often not for sale, this gallery freely gave their time and resources to our burgeoning art scene. We believe it's time for us to give back as they regroup and rebuild.
We are excited to announce this we-have-your-back fundraiser party for what will be the "New Hinterland Art Space". Please join us in supporting our precious local artists on 6/1 at Globe Hall - Get your tickets here!
All Senses Go
We're back in Denver and firing on all cylinders Saturday 2/3 with a newly designed, immersive audio-visual experience. Our friends, Denver light installation artists, Knomadcolab, will deck the venue (Lost Lake Lounge) in handmade light sculptures to bring a uniquely tailored visual experience for this night only. Psych-rock band, Ghostpulse, opens the evening and DJ Lubejob closes it out.
"The Love Story - Behind Pan Astral"
Gabe was interviewed by The Love Story, and goes deep discussing pain, catharsis, and getting to the heart of truth. Watch in the video below:
We were honored to take part in OpenAir CPR's radio broadcast "Dearly Departed 2017" - Colorado artists paying tribute to the influential artists who passed away this year. We recorded our own take on "Vitamin C" by the late-great CAN, whose Jaki Liebezeit and Holger Czukay both passed this year. CAN is a dear influence to us, and we had a blast making this recording. Stream below, and enjoy!
Dearly Departed 2017
We're hard at work in Turquoise Studio on the new record, and are thrilled with the new music. Stay tuned, as we'll be announcing details on release, shows and more soon.

The Pan Astral Playlist
As we work on the new album, so much of the creative process comes from diving into the music that is inspiring us right now. So we've created a new ongoing playlist series on Spotify, "The Pan Astral Playlist" to showcase music we're digging, that is informing the new music we're recording. We'll be updating it regularly, so it will continue to evolve, just as the music does. Follow on Spotify, share, enjoy and let us know what you think!
