2013 Denver Post Underground Music Showcase
The Yawpers presented by SpokesBUZZ
54 S Broadway
Denver, CO, 80207
This event is 21 and over
A stripped down, brazen rock and roll band from Colorado,
accompanied by overdriven acoustic guitars and a trap
kit. Inspired by Whitman's promise to "sound my barbaric
yawp over the roofs of the world," the Yawpers have
created a sound that is equal parts frenetic, earnest, and
menacing, all while bringing together disparate pieces of
the American musical lexicon.
Though less than three years old, the Yawpers have played
hundreds of shows on both coasts, and everywhere in
between, and have played with: Dr. Dog, The Cold War
Kids, Reverend Horton Heat, Chad Price, Cracker, The
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Joe Buck, Will Hoge
and many others.
Following the release of an EP in 2011, their critically
well received LP, "Capon Crusade", released in late 2012,
debuted at #1 on the Colorado Music Charts, and is now in
its second printing.
