Brest, France, became Denver's first sister city in 1948. Since then, the two cities have engaged in cultural exchanges and student trips. There's also a City of Brest Park in southeast Denver.
That partnership takes a musical turn this year: Four Denver bands will head to Brest Oct. 7-16 for a series of performances. Those bands are indie folk groups Morning Bear and Poet's Row, electro-pop band Nasty Nachos and newcomer Wolf Island -- which features former members of Rose Quartz.
The exchange also intends to bring a number of French artists to Denver in 2018.
Watch Poet's Row perform in the CPR Performance Studio below.
