the Blue Rider
A Denver rock 'n roll band started in Winter 2011. Pioneers of the Denver "PsychSoul" sound, the Blue Rider came together through their shared love of garage, psychedelic, R&B, and surf records. There's nothin like the crackle on a good 'n beat up rock 'n roll album to get you shakin. Nothin, that is, except for seeing it live and in-person.
We're here to keep the party moving.
We have had the privilege of sharing the stage with:
The Warlocks, Night Beats, Spindrift, Broken Spirits, Hanni el Khatib, Those Darlins, and many many more.
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
Kitty Crimes (DJ Set)
Self-produced and diverse in talent, Kitty Crimes oscillates between her resonance with chest-puffed Rap and the vulnerability that exists in the lush soundscapes of R&B. A description would be incomplete without referring to more subliminal influences of groups including Dirty Projectors, James Blake, and Soko. An unbridled synthesis of these elements is reflected through the saturated beats, and...
"People emit so much love and give off an incredible amount of energy when Kitty Crimes is performing and that’s a beautiful thing. She draws the crowd inward and delivers a ferocious bang." -Tobias Kraus// Truly Rejected
"We think Kitty Crimes is deliciously sinful and we fully endorse this kind of behavior." -Denver Syntax
"Denver's Kitty Crimes is the poor man's female equivalent ... to the thoughts and the consciousness of "Yeezus." - Sean Moeller// Daytrotter
