Church Fire
Church Fire
“Church Fire took the stage and fucked all of our heads up. Nothing could’ve really prepared us for this duo. The best description I can muster up of Church Fire’s music is an entrancing electronic exorcism that makes you want to delicately melt someone’s face off. It’s beautiful.” – 303 Magazine
Wheelchair Sports Camp
Wheelchair Sports Camp
Denver's biggest smallest band.

"If there were ever a moment for a queer, disabled rapper with a love for pot, jokes, and revolution to be a star, the moment is now" - Village Voice

Combining humor, playfulness, radical political perspectives, compassion and undeniable musical chops, Wheelchair Sports Camp is unlike any other hip-hop act around. Fronted by the wheelchair bound MC/beat-maker/activist/educator/shit-talker Kalyn, the band is a combination of live and electronic instruments with a more noisey, jazzy, experimental, combination to the traditional hip-hop group. The band has been featured on the cover of the Village Voice as well as in SPIN Magazine, Huffington Post, High Times Magazine and more. You can't really pin Kalyn's beats and collaborators to a specific era or subgenre of hip-hop, and she always switches up her configuration and presentation and methodology while making the music happen in consistently fascinating ways.

The band unknowingly started in the summer of 1997 when Kalyn moved back from Burbank, CA to her Denver hometown and was invited to attend and corrupt the 14th annual week-long Wheelchair Sports Camp. The band tours the states and beyond from their home in Denver, Colorado.
The Milk Blossoms
The Milk Blossoms
The Milk Blossoms believe in the subversive power of fragility within music, within art, within life, and within each other. Combining ukulele, expressive beat-boxing and piano, the trio blends to create dark pop music. The Milk Blossoms have been featured on Colorado Public Radio Open Air, Radio 1190’s Local Shakedown, and was named “Best Experimental” band for the 2016 Westword Music Awards. This year, they are nominated for a Westword Music Award in the “Indie Pop” category.

“This trio defies easy categorization because its two singers, Michelle Rocqet and Harmony Rose, bring such strong voices and songwriting that are so different yet complementary. Rocqet is not just a human beatbox in the vein of Tez of CocoRosie, but also a powerful soul singer. Rose's more ethereal style brims with a raw emotional resonance. It's pop, it's soul music, and it's experimental at its core — but un-selfconsciously so.” Tom Murphy of Westword’s “The Ten Great Female-Fronted bands of Denver You Need to Know”.

They have been lucky to share the stage with acts including Cocorosie, Advance Base (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone), Jessica Lea Mayfield, Julia Nunes and Daniel Ho.
