Waiting Til Three - (Set time: 3:00 PM)
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.

In the end, no one was ready...

We had spent so much time planning for it. So many hours spent prepping for doomsday; arming ourselves to protect our loved ones. We held so strong for so long, but our species grew too great, too quickly. There was nothing we could do to stop the collapse. We were broken from the inside. In the end, no one was ready. Plugged into technology but disconnected from each other, it is a surprise the fall did not come sooner. They took everything from you, and you let them do it. And now everyone is gone, and you stand alone in this foreign and dead new world. Fear not, new citizen. The People Corrupting People are here to herd the masses and give volume to their meager voices. The time has come to shake things up, and we will do that the only way we know how. Through the universal and irreplaceable power of music we, the People Corrupting People, will save this flock of abandoned sheep...

We, the People Corrupting People, In order to scorn a more perfect union, Demolish justice, Insure domestic futility, Divide with the common defense, Promote the general Warfare, And secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and ourselves only, Do ordain and establish this Constitution For the New United States of America.

Stray the Course - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Stray the Course
Formed in 2011 as a power trio under the name Assault on the Commonplace. Founding members Ben Baroch (bass), Cooper Travis (drums), and Ronnie Toplyn (guitar/vocals) cut their teeth while finishing up their college studies. However, it wasn’t until February of 2017 upon the addition of 2nd guitarist/vocalist Steve Nelson that the band found its full potential and emerged as Stray The Course.

Their sound is a unique combination, harboring the fast lead lines of ‘Rise Against’, the inward facing dark lyrics of ‘My Chemical Romance’ and the raw energy of ‘Green Day’ at the height of their power. They allow songs to take a pure emotion and let it run its natural course (and occasionally stray from it).

With moments of elevated energy, and depth of reflective remorse, their lyrics outline an emotional roller coaster. Stray The Course released their debut EP "self titled" in November 2017. It's available on Spotify, Bandcamp, and iTunes.
