Helpful info for Music Matters attendees


If you’re planning on attending Music Matters, here is a little information to help make your evening more enjoyable…


David GlasserThis is shaping up to be our most well-attended event ever! David Glasser from Airshow Mastering and Shawn R. Britton from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab will be doing the keynote presentations in Room I, and the cream of the crop of our other vendors also have some killer demonstrations lined up (please see full list of rooms and manufacturers below).

The event is being held at our Denver store, 685 South Pearl Street
In preparation for this event, the store will be closed during the day on Tuesday and Wednesday, and re-open at its normal time on Thursday.


Parking is available on the street and in the lot of Lincoln Elementary School, which is directly south of ListenUp. Because we are in a primarily residential neighborhood, though, parking can be a little tight, so we encourage you to give yourself a bit of extra time.

Fabulous food from Adelita’s Cocina y Cantina
