As disappointing as it is that Denver emcee and disability rights activist Kalyn Heffernan didn’t win this year’s mayoral election, there’s also a big upside. It means she can continue to focus on her talent for stirring up trouble, writing brilliantly sardonic rhymes, and delivering them onstage with her experimental jazz-hop band Wheelchair Sports Camp.

As the Village Voice once put it in a 4,000-word profile, “If there were ever a moment for a queer, disabled rapper with a love for pot, jokes, and revolution to be a star, the moment is now.” Recently returned home from their “Short Bus Tour,” the band will draw upon a repertoire of favorites that includes “Take Stairs in Case of Fire” and “Hard Out Here for a Gimp.” The show will also feature the Springs’ own Bullhead*ded as well as a headlining set from East Coast rapper B. Dolan.
