If you’ve been keeping up with the news, DJ Williams has had a harrowing year. After flying to the Middle East in April, the guitarist for Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and his own solo project Shots Fired was detained abroad for a few weeks. The music community rallied around Williams while the case was settled, with the musician happily returning to the United States a month later. Since then, DJ Williams has returned and has been making his rounds with various musical projects. Today, Williams let fans in Colorado know that they can look forward to catching him live and in-person with the upcoming Colorado debut of his own DJ Williams’ Shots Fired.The project will see the guitarist joined by an ever-rotating cast of musicians from the scene, and for this upcoming run, Williams will be joined by his Tiny Universe bandmates, Chris Stillwell and David Veith. This iteration of Shots Fired also taps the Slightly Stoopid horns players, Daniel Delacruz and Andy Geib, as well as Jeff Franca of Thievery Corporation, Kimberly Dawson from Pimps of Joytime, Max MacVeety of Lyrics Born, and guitarist Cris Jacob. DJ Williams’ Shots Fired will hit the Shakedown Bar in Vail on Friday, September 15th, followed by a performance at Ophelia’s in Denver the next night on Saturday, September 16th. Tickets for their Saturday show are available here.
