Waiting Til Three
With the release of the album Nowhere Bound, Waiting Til Three brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush, with addicting progressions, a classic rock approach, and pop undertones throughout, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie rock anthems. Though the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds it all together much like a concept album would. Most importantly, the record never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built from.

The first single, “18 & The Rules Change”, is a classic rock powerhouse. Complete with a bouncing rhythm, catchy melody lines, and loads of energy, the song seems to breathe and build as it plays on.

“Turning 18, life gets thrown at you fast and you have to start making important decisions for yourself. As the song moves along, Jesse sings about turning 25 and still feeling the same pressure to make important ‘adulting’ decisions, ” explains the band of thier single.

Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where Waiting Til Three are coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

“I think the entire album is about struggling with what life throws at you, particularly as a young adult. 18 & The Rules Change is a good introduction to what you will hear throughout the album. Songs about dealing with change, love and tragedies, sung and performed with real emotion and passion,” says drummer Grant of the album and song writing approach.

Conceived in a small Rocky Mountains town, Waiting Til Three is composed of guitarist/ vocalist Jesse Hughes and drummer Grant Payton. Being a lifelong musician, Hughes had set up a home studio and rehearsal space in his Grand Lake cabin after relocating from Austin TX. After some time, Grant, a good friend, needed a pace to crash and Hughes let him stay for a while. As their friendship took shape, Jesse asked Grant to hop on the drums to accompany him in writing some songs. Before long their sound also took shape and things quickly escalated. Soon after, the duo was playing local bars and venues. Eventually the two decided to relocate to Yuba City, CA to continue the bands progression. With a new found urge to write new material, the duo went to Chicago to record in a studio Grant’s uncle had put together. It was then that the Nowhere Bound album was finally born. A huge step forward for the band, the release is the epitome of where they are with their sound right now.

The album is now available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets, and the band is planning on performing up and down the front range of the Denver, CO area in support of their release.
TiltShift - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
A Craigslist meeting that didn't end up (that) creepy, TiltShift is the GrungeAltMetal that happens when three brilliant young DU alums meet a middle-aged, two-time CU grad in his basement in Aurora...

...Ok, maybe it's a little creepy
Denver Meatpacking Company - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Denver Meatpacking Company
Three-piece indie rock band. Somewhere it's still 1995.

Denver Meatpacking Company is a band that is 25 years in the making. It was that long ago that drummer Jerome Bellian and guitarist/singer David Simutis met, while their bands played in the same circles in the college town of Oxford, OH.

The two crossed paths when they were both living in Houston back in 1998. It was a random meeting at a bar with Jerome sending a shot of tequila over, but no music plans were hatched. It wasn’t until each had moved to Denver from California -- Jerome from Northern California, David from Los Angeles, when they started playing music together. Bassist Alfred Mueller also relocated to Denver from Los Angeles and was a natural fit for the band, since he’d actually been in the illustrious Karate Pants with David.

The name is a nod to their adopted hometown and Jerome’s first job as a butcher, though they decision to name the band DMC was actually left up to their social network; the band put up an online poll and let their friends choose it for them.

The new combo quickly got to work, firing out a dozen tracks in under a month and taking advantage of a large social network of musicians and people in the music business to help bring attention to this project. The friendships included legendary studio wizard Paul Hamann (Pere Ubu, Wild Cherry, James Gang, fIREHOSE, the Black Keys), owner of Suma Recording Studio in Ohio. Hammann engineered the trio’s debut, which was recorded and mixed in whirlwind fashtion.

Entropy, the resulting debut album, is a raw batch of straightforward indie rockers that wouldn’t have sounded out of place 25 years ago.
