Tier Two Live knows how to put together bands that go along well together. Even when all three are in different genres, they still flow together and sound amazing. It was like a loving trip through several decades of rock. There’s really nothing else in Lafayette like this venue. Make sure you’re coming out and seeing these shows, and supporting local music! Tier Two has more shows lined up throughout the summer!
In a world where many have proclaimed live music to be dead, it continues to flourish. Local and national acts alike still find audiences for their shows. New venues open up, even as old ones close. Tier Two Live is something to keep your eyes on in the Boulder-Denver area, as are the bands that played this show.
From struggles with abuse and mental health to love and changing throughout life, seranine has crafted a superb album that showcases some of the best things of the folk genre. From the relatability of the songs to the feeling that she is in the room with you, singing directly to you, this album is truly a treasure.
It is safe to say that big things are on the horizon for Nothing More. If all of the sold-out shows this tour is proof enough concert-goers young and old should not hesitate on tickets for a Nothing More event!
Now that both parts are out, make sure you pick them up. While Moments: Red and Blue both shine on their own, they play best together. Choosing to release their latest set of tracks as two separate EP’s is, well, something clever. But then that’s the name of the band, isn’t it? Moments: Blue is available on streaming services and music purchasing platforms today!
Since demonstrating their capabilities on their 2017 album Far from Strangers, Reason Define has only moved upward. The professional sound of In Memory… is absolutely unmistakeable. Despite, or perhaps because of, that professional refinement, the album also shows a lot of heart.
From the very first moment, Moments: Red grips you by the ears, prepared to drag you along for one heavy journey. “The Hill” starts off extremely heavy and doesn’t relent for even one moment.
In a backroom in Denver, Colorado, a small crowd was gathering. Word spread of the concert through event pages and messaging networks. Fans of hardcore and punk filed in, eager to hear the night’s music. Underground music never died. It just went, well, underground.
Shuulak handles their own recording, photography, and visual design, and this adds to the level of theatricality, allowing them to create a fully fleshed out concept with matching visuals. Through each track, you can see a story being told and tell that each note was thought out. The title track, “Albedo”, concludes the EP with a short ballad that leaves listeners wanting more from this truly top notch band.
It was a most excellent night. Several thousand dollars were raised for local causes, and all of the attendees had a blast. The Gathering Place, a Denver shelter for women, children, and transgender individuals, was the beneficiary for this night.
