College Radio - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
College Radio
An eclectic mix of alternative rock from the 1980's and beyond, featuring artists and songs so often ignored or forgotten by Colorado's conventional classic rock cover bands.

Tired of the same bands playing the same songs, all melding into one long, boring symphony? We are. College Radio is different, offering a diverse, wide-ranging, eclectic mix of alternative rock, featuring music from R.E.M., The Replacements, The Clash, Elvis Costello, The Cult, The Cure, The Smiths, Talking Heads, Pretenders, Joe Jackson, Smashing Pumpkins, Pixies, and many others. Minus visual gimmicks, costumes, or distractions, College Radio's reputation is built on accurate and energized performances of songs true to their originally recorded and/or live concert versions.
The Symbols - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Symbols
The Symbols eclectic rock band is exploding out of the unlikely state of Colorado. Self described as "Spiritual porn rock", The Symbols aren't trying to blend in. Their music invites blues, funk, and rock into popular music. With complimentary guitar and vocal sounds and true harmony between its members, the love, energy and sound of this new female-fronted power trio is infecting people's hearts in theaters and festivals across America.
Velvet Compass - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Velvet Compass
Velvet Compass crossed continents to find and create the perfect groove. You will quickly become addicted to their funky rhythms and soulful style.

Jason payed his way through law school playing the lot of Australia found his home in Denver. He has since played over 100 venues in the U.S. and looking forward to shredding on many more stages.

Faith's heart's love for blues and soul greatly overpower her classical background. Her unique tone quality and ability to capture any audience's attention is as astounding as her lyricism.

Ernie has been the back bone to many wedding and cover bands in Denver and the San Francisco area for over 10 years. His love for music developed at a young age attending smoky blues/jazz clubs with this father. Ernie plays every show with the same passion and excitement as the first time he hit the kit in 7th grade. He is relishing the opportunity to create and shape new sounds with Velvet Compass.

This five piece will have your hips shakin' to their funky soulful tunes in no time. Amidst the continuous shows in Denver they are currently compiling Velvet Compass' first LP. Sign up for their mailing list for event details and upcoming shows.
