The Longest Day of the Year
Rowdy Colorado Rock ‘n’ Roll

After 5 years of regional touring, The Longest Day of the Year’s rowdy and danceable live shows have earned them an underground following across the Rocky Mountains. TLDOTY’s brand of rock ‘n’ roll is the offspring of roots country and blues, raised in the front range of Colorado. A performance from TLDOTY is a high energy alchemy of striking songwriting and blistering musicianship.

TLDOTY has taken some of Colorado’s finest stages—at Belly Up Aspen, Boulder Theater, Bluebird Theater, Fox Theater, Hodi's Halfnote, Hi Dive, Larimer Lounge—alongside Blind Boys of Alabama, The White Buffalo, Sturgill Simpson, Frontier Ruckus, Lukas Nelson, and Jason Boland, among many others.

TLDOTY's debut album, Turn Into The Ground, ranked as the #13 most played CO band on state-wide radio in 2012. (www.thecoloradosound.com) Their follow-up album, Carapace, was released in 2014 to critical Colorado acclaim.
Radical Knitting Circle
Radical Knitting Circle
Radical Knitting Circle has successfully dragged the river and found the remains of an old soul full of heartbreak and hammered fingernails, lost constituencies and the poetry of a hymn. On finding this fortune, they have pieced together a sound both raucous yet melodic, traditional though progressive. RKC is a dynamic and unique quartet of well-versed, ambitious musicians and songwriters who take their craft seriously, not their egos. With a creative and conscious effort to make music that is one of a kind, RKC infuses uninhibited human, social, and political commentary with a sound that is experimental and explorative, yet familiar as they pluck carelessly from the genres of folk, jazz, rock, and indie songsmithing. This talented group keeps the listener guessing, while remembering their audience's prejudice and proclivity - allowing them boogie while arching over backwards in a musical effort to keep them on their toes! RKC often reinterprets their own music as well as the occasional cover, giving their fans an added reason to return for the next show.


"It is hard to pinpoint a genre for Radical Knitting Circle. Each part of each song sounded like a different one and it seems as though that's exactly what they're going for--an eclectic, quirky set that keeps the crowd guessing." -Boulder Daily Camera

". . . a sound that combines whimsy and semi-controlled chaos. . . entertainingly bizarre." -Westword
