The Velveteers
The Velveteers
The Velveteers are an American Rock outfit that is the epiphany of punk with the aggressive sound and grungy wisdom that transcends through the Siren like power of Demi Demitro's (frontwomen/lead guitar) voice. Through the distorted guitar riffs and thunderous drums they lure their audience with vibes that come right out of a classic horror flick.

"They won't break the skin but you may leave with some bruises."

Smashed drum kits, blown speakers, and deafeningly loud, Plastic Daggers embody the raw, unfiltered, noise laden rock n' roll that you've been longing for. Dark and heavy but electric and full of pent up aggression, the deceivingly dangerous duo fuse a punk rock attitude, ear-splitting distortion, borderline manic drums, and high-energy vocals into one raucous live show. Throw out your suit and tie, trash that acoustic guitar, smoke your first cigarette and break something.

Members Keaton Kidder (bass/vocals) and Jordan Palmer (drums/vocals), think less is more. Recently featured in Westword Magazine’s article, The Eight Denver Bands That Should Break Nationally, writer Brett Callwood said, "They don’t need anybody else; as a two-piece, they’re making enough uncompromising noise to match bands with way more members.”

The band released their debut album, Shotgun EP on Sailor Records (Denver, CO.) in Dec. of 2016 and performed as an official artist at SXSW 2017. They are currently recording their sophomore album which will be released in early 2018. They've gotten the opportunity to perform alongside some killer bands such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Red Fang, '68, ..And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, and many more.
Bud Bronson + the Good Timers
Bud Bronson + the Good Timers
A lot of the classic-rock-inspired music that’s come about over the past decade has sounded like a cut-rate version of the real thing. If we heard enough fake Led Zeppelins in the ’80s to last a lifetime, in more recent years, there have been enough ersatz Neil Youngs and Laurel Canyon clones to colonize space. Bud Bronson & the Good Timers, though, are different. Their music is not all dramatic delivery with no substance; instead, it’s the kind of triumphant power pop that feels like it’s coming from an honest place rather than being an affectation of style. For these guys, getting ahold of an older relative’s record collection was a beginning point, not a destination. That they have moved beyond obvious influences makes Bud Bronson & the Good Timers one of the most exciting rock-and-roll bands in Denver at this moment.
