Desert Atlas at Trident Booksellers & Cafe, Boulder
April 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
UPDATE: This show has been rescheduled for April 29, 2022.
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Ramirez, who performs and records under the name Desert Atlas, writes what he calls lowercase songs, which often document a preoccupation with time and place: geography and geology, weather and the seasons, and, always, the past.
Originally from the Philippines, Ramirez arrived in New Jersey at the age of 17. After a couple of decades in the Northeast, he moved to Denver in 2015 and has been greatly inspired by the scale of the American Southwest, releasing his first solo full-length album—The Great Plains are an Ocean—in June 2021.
He was recently featured as part of the Local 303 on Indie 102.3, and his music can be heard on all major streaming services.
