BBQ and more BBQ

Lots of news!

Hope you all had a great UMS. We witnessed amazing sets by Strange Americans, Safe Boating is No Accident, The Still Tide, Eros and the Eschaton, and more. Then topped off four days of debauchery with a band outing to bask in the epic sadness of The National at Red Rocks. Plus Amanda nearly lost her glasses to the Hi-Dive in connection with a crowd surfing incident at a Bud Bronson and the Good Timers show. It really doesn't get any more nerd rock than that. Except maybe playing a Rock the Library set at the public library, which we're doing in October.

Some great shows coming up. This Sunday (8/21) is a Larimer Lounge afternoon BBQ show with an all-star lineup of great Denver bands - the gorgeous harmonies of Poet's Row, the high-energy post-punk of Wire Faces, cosmic American music from U.S. Tygers (a UMS highlight), headlined by the aforementioned Strange Americans.

Thursday 8/25, at Globe Hall, we have our first-ever show supporting an internationally touring band, Louisville KY's Quiet Hollers. I really like their songs (check out "Broken Guitar"!), and their band portrait shows five bearded dudes and one badass-looking cat, so I'm personally pretty excited about this. Also, barbecue. Seems like this is a common theme for us. Although we did mix it up with some delicious gyro sandwiches late one UMS night.

Also, don't forget, October 5 at the Park Hill Branch Library. Nerd Rock 4 Life.

I added a "Media" tab to this website in case you should want to read the lies we tell the press, or the lies the press tell about us.
