Emerald Siam

Arising out of the ashes of beloved Denver noise rock band Overcasters, the gents of Emerald Siam present their brand of big, loud, droning, danceable space and psych rock, catapulting audiences ears and souls forward, forward to the precipice of the abyss.

Emerald Siam began at the end of 2012 with the shared vision of guitarist/vocalist Kurt Ottaway and bassist Todd Spriggs. With the addition of guitarist Billy Armijo and drummer Greg Johnson, the group melds their shared and disparate influences into a swirling mass of jarring reverbed guitars, thumping bottom end and a monster beat.

To date, Emerald Siam has been incredibly lucky to have shared the stage with the likes of The Warlocks, Crystal Stilts, Dead Meadow, A Place to Bury Strangers, Wovenhand, Mystic Braves, Weekend, Tjutjuna, The Fresh & Onlys, The Wytches, Dum Dum Girls, True Widow, Disappears, Myrrors and many others.

Hindershot was founded on a simple premise: music, however challenging, should always be a good time. Despite poetic lyrics, unusual chord changes, complex harmonies, and an eclectic list of influences (Beck, T. Rex, David Bowie, The Beach Boys, The Pixies), Hindershot boasts a repertoire of post-whatever jams you can dance to. With lyrical content ranging from the mundane and light-hearted (inhalers, insects, and oscillating fans) to the grandiose and grim (black holes, death, political unrest), songwriter Stuart Confer weaves a complex, mythologized autobiography through details and metaphor. The immediacy, earnestness and breathless energy of punk rock still grin through, missing teeth and all.

Flash / Cub

Denver’s electro-pop darlings Flashlights have been turning heads ever since their Binary Records debut “Hidden Behind Trees EP”, earned them a mention in NME’s Buzzworthy Artists, and was named one of Westword Magazine’s best releases of 2011. Known for their intoxicating light & fog show, Flashlights have shared the stage with the likes of New Order, Tycho, Toro Y Moi, Miami Horror, Cherub, Youth Lagoon, and Gardens & Villa, and have been cutting their teeth on the festival circuit with performances at SXSW, CMJ, UMS, SnowBall, Treefort, and Westword Music Showcase.

2012 marks the release of their sophomore EP “So Close To Midnight“ through Holy Underground (HUG Records) to rave reviews. SCTM is a brighter, more dance-oriented collection of songs, and boasts remixes by the likes of Brothertiger, Slow Magic, and Fabian. Download the EP for free via Bandcamp, and keep an eye out for a new single to be released late this October.

Colfax Speed Queen

Once born out of the crystal clear Rocky Mountain water, Colfax Speed Queen quickly dirtied their bones with distortion, tremolo, and plenty of slap back reverb just like their heroes from the 60's and 70's. CSQ is far from a revival band though. They're an original breed of garage, punk, rock, and surf. CSQ is not about going fast. They're about being hopped up and strung out on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The Royal is the brainchild of lead vocalist Tyler Hayden with percussionist Eric Marshall, guitarist Jack Schuler, bass guitarist Matt Clark and Nashville's Colby Rogers on piano and synth.

The Royal sound is loosely influenced by and/or a mix between Queen, Hall and Oates, The National , Muse, Roxy Music, The Smiths, ELO, The Boss (Bruce not Rick), Martin Grech, Long Pigs, Hudson Mohawke, Sparks, The Rapture, Cut Copy, Mr. Hudson, The Cars, The Presets, Prince and Denver bands.

Violent Summer

Violent Summer is an indie rock band from Denver, CO made up of former members of Le Divorce, The Don'ts & Be Carefuls, Ideal Fathers, Wombmates.
