2016 marks the 16th anniversary of The Denver Post Underground Music Showcase, the biggest independent music festival in the Rocky Mountain region and the premier showcase for Denver’s incredible local music scene!

The fucking best band EVER in the history of recorded music. There maybe was a band better before the advent of music recording technology, but not since. Zebroids, fuck you.

Party Hard

We play Andrew W.K. songs, and party fucking hard.

Dirty Few

Warm beers. Out-of-tune guitars. Cancelled shows. Broken mopeds. While lesser bands may have crumbled under the weight of such colossal rock & roll bummers, Dirty Few has not only weathered the storm, but emerged victorious, leading an entire army of Denver dive-bar diehards into a rad utopia where the babes are hot, the PBR flows like wine and a little barf is nothing more than a sure sign you’re having a good night.

Born in Nashville and raised in the same Louisiana swamp-country that brought us Red Lobster Cajun-fried shrimp, Bobby Boucher and 8-time National Monster Truck Meltdown champion Bone Crenshaw, twin brothers Seth and Spencer Stone moved to Denver in early 2010, bringing with them only the mopeds they rode in on and the few Twisted Teas they could carry. The boys soon hooked up with veteran bassist Justin Forrest and tambourine-slinging Cambodian sexpot Kim Phat, and in a torrential thunderstorm of exploding PBRs and RealTree-clad eagles, Dirty Few was born.

Since their 2012 debut release “Get Loose, Have Fun”, the garage-rock-&-roll juggernaut has played with pretty much every awesome band in the world, from Andrew W.K., Ty Segall, FIDLAR and Natural Child to Wavves, The Men, Broncho and blah, blah, blah. But in no way has the band had their fill of party. With their upcoming “Party or Don’t” LP to be released in February 2015 on Black in Bluhm Music, Dirty Few is more ready than ever to show up at your house party, beer-bong your mom, puke on your floor, and somehow leave you singing one of their ultra-catchy party anthems as you happily clean up the mess. - Brian Beer

Jux County

Formed in December 1986, Jux County is one of the longest tenured rock bands in Denver, with a career that has included opening up for Nirvana, Alanis Morissette, Matchbox 20, Primus, the Meat Puppets, Living Colour, Pere Ubu, Juliana Hatfield, The Heads, and X.

Featuring Andy Monley on guitar and vocals, Ron Smith on drums, and Chris Pearson on bass, the power trio that occupies Jux County, has the longevity as long as the source of our name, from William Faulkner, the Purlizter Prize winning author from Mississippi. Faulkner would set his stories in the mythical Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, and juxtapose different ideologies together in a story, much like the band does with elements of country, rock, jazz, punk, surf, metal, industrial, waltzes and even polka. Alas, the name Jux County! Other more famous bands basing their names on Faulkner include Pylon (from Athens) and The Reivers (from Austin).

Jux has released five albums {Junk Country (2001), Haxtun EP (1999), Simon's Eyes (1995), Word of Bovek (1989), Spendin' the Day (1991)}, and a single {Be There (1990)}.

Band highlights include:

Jux performed at the SXSW independent music festival in Austin Texas in 1991 and 1996. In 1996, Jux County was the only unsigned band from Colorado to be selected into SXSW.

In 1993, Jux County composed and performed all original music for the play PlagueSong at the Changing Scene Theater in Denver. The original eerie, hillbillesque music was critically acclaimed in the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News.

For 1995, Jux County was chosen local band of the year in The Denver Post.

For 1996, Jux County was voted Best Alternative Band by the 200,000 readers of Westword magazine.

Jux County has composed and recorded over 100 pieces for various film and television soundtracks.

Jux County released its latest album, entitled "Junk Country", on September 14th, 2001. Recording live in the big room in Colin Bricker's NFA Studios over 3 hot days in July, it is essentially a live album capturing our best performances of a mixture of old and new songs. The title "Junk Country" is a testament to all of the times promoters have misprinted our band name over the last 15 years.
