This event is all ages
Alternative rock band, REDLANDS, has been making waves in the Denver music scene since they formed in 2013. Originally from Grand Junction, CO, this dynamic group has achieved much in their short time together.
Soon after their inception, they released their first EP, The Lonewolf, which was recorded in Northern Hollywood with producer Matt Grabe. The group caught the attention of Vans Warped Tour, earning them a spot on the Ernie Ball Stage just months after its release. The following year, Adventurer was released in 2015 and put them on the roster for the South by So What?! Music Festival in Grand Prairie, Texas.
In 2016, REDLANDS performed again at Vans Warped Tour, this time upgrading to Journey’s Main Stage. The band self-produced their record Is There Anybody Out There? and later took first place as Denver’s next and upcoming artist in channel 93.3 KTCL’s Hometown for the Holidays with their single, “Big Talk.”
Since then, the band has performed at many well-known venues and has played alongside Imagine Dragons, Dashboard Confessional, and The Fray.
“Retro-pop band Nightlove will transport you back to the golden age of the dancefloor over sparkling synths and passionate vocals. Awash in pink and purple light and more often than not, donning your father’s favorite sports coat, the band effortlessly brings 1983 to 2018. Considering the band only began playing shows in November, UMS will undoubtedly be a launching ground for the bigger things in Nightlove’s future. If the music is any indication, the band’s throwback sound will only propel them to future fame.” - 303 Magazine
“Although brand new(ish) on the music scene, artist Nightlove instantly sparked our interest when we first laid ears on him. Taylor MacNicholas is the hairy, tattooed genius behind the emerging 80's synth pop project. With just a sprinkle of emo flare in his vocal belting and breaks, Taylor takes the popular techniques of the sequined jumpsuits, colossal glam hair, and parachute pants era and transforms it into current, mainstream pop. In our recent interview Taylor discusses the conception, inspiration and development behind Nightlove. We feel this is going to been of the most hyped performances of the festival, we hope you have enough energy left Sunday night!” - Ultra 5280
1. something used to hold or secure a thing in place; a catch, hook, clamp, etc.
On February 25th, 2017, we released our debut EP under our band name. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We're about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with Dictionary.com. "Holdfast" was the "Word of the Day." I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those "Words of the Day." I admired the thought of "Holdfast" being one word, but it's meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers - have done, & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life.
