Carlos Medina
Carlos Medina
Meow Wolf musician Carlos Medina is a psychedelic Mariachi. His debut album “El Cantador” pushes the boundaries of the genre into the psych-pop realm, exploring themes of altered states, mystery and illusion. Carlos is a multi-instrumentalist with a DIY background, bootstrapping a career in remote roadside bars, serenading strangers at their tables with dark corridos from the heart. Known to many as “the Tom Waits of Mariachi,” Carlos has played in 38 states and sold tens of thousands of handmade CDs to individual fans across the country. He is an artist-in-residence at George RR Martin’s Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe.
Pink Hawks
Pink Hawks
Pink Hawks is an Afrobeat / Chicano Hip-Hop orchestra, playing original and future-traditional music to dance to. Local music scholar Tom Murphy states, "As much artistic revolutionaries as musicians, Pink Hawks bring the struggle for a more interesting world home to roost." In his coverage of the Underground Music Showcase, Westword Magazine writer A.H. Goldstein paints a narrative: “I jostled through the crowd to find a spot at the front of the room. The effort was worth it - Pink Hawks' set was easily one of the most dynamic and infectious of the night.” Your body, mind and soul will thank you later.
Pink Hawks don't just want you to watch them perform, they want you to join them. Comprised of ample world musicianship garnering comparison to sonic innovators such as Fela Kuti’s Afro-beat, Mulatu Astatke’s Ethiopiques Jazz, "Sun Ra's melodically off-the-rails piano playing, and the languid, sonically adventurous atmospheres of Yo La Tengo" (Tom Murphy, Westword), Pink Hawks have evolved from an entirely free-form performance art group, to the more focused psychedelic Afro-Beat ensemble they are today.

Currently led by the experienced improvisationalist Yuzo Nieto, Pink Hawks is a group that will exceed your expectations of live dance music. Trained in operatic singing, jazz saxophone and theater, Nieto's musical inclinations led him beyond the punk roots of his youth to explore other forms of artistic expression both traditional and visceral. As Jon Solomon of the Westword writes, "Nieto not only likes to fill your ears with some intriguing ear candy, he’ll give you something to watch." Add a twelve-piece world orchestra of professional musicians, and you’ve got one of the hottest and most original acts in Denver.

Put on your dancing pants, and join Pink Hawks as they set the floor on fire.
The Savage Blush
The Savage Blush
The Savage Blush is a Psychedelic Rock band formed by siblings Rebecca and Joshua Williams in the summer of 2014. Since forming the project they have toured the united states from east to west and released two singles and three albums; all of which differ radically from one to the next.

Though the music is deliberately ever-changing, the intention remains the same. They want to drop you in the middle of the desert and keep you there until your mouth is dry, your legs ache from dancing, and every atom in your body tries to burst through your skin.

The Savage Blush gives you a heavy dose of their love of classic Psychedelic Rock and Roll mixed in with a modern Garage rock sound and sprinkled with Surf and Latin undertones.

Driving rhythms, hiccuped vocals, fiery guitar licks, and bass lines that leave you wanting more. Watch out, they're coming for you.
