Denver Music Round-Up | You, Me & Apollo part ways, announce final show

It's with a heavy heart that we report You, Me & Apollo are parting ways. The quickly growing band based out of Fort Collins announced today on their Facebook that it's time to say goodbye, giving fans one last chance to see them perform this month at Hodi's Half Note on Saturday, December 20th. 

The quick post released this morning did not cite reasons for the bands seemingly sudden end, but did tip their hat to their humble beginnings, the local scene that raised them, and the ever-faithful Illegal Pete's, who will be hosting an official after-party for the bands farewell show. 

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the final You Me & Apollo show will take place in our hometown of Fort Collins, CO on Dec 20th. Although, Brent had been performing as a solo artist under the You Me & Apollo moniker previous to this, Hodi's Half Note was where You Me & Apollo had it's inaugural performance as a full band on July 13th, 2011. It only feels right that our last performance as a band also take place on the same stage. We will be joined by our friends and locals, Slow Caves and The Covz. The night will come to completion with an after party at Illegal Pete's Ft Collins. The generous folks at Illegal Pete's have also provided you Denverites with a bundle package that includes a ticket to the show and transportation for $30. There are only 48 spots available, so check out bit.ly/YMAAPartyBus for more details. 
We cannot begin to tell you how much appreciate all of the support we have received throughout the years, we love all of you fine people very much.

Last year the band took a huge leap into the national spotlight, playing a handful of shows at SXSW in 2014, including one festival Official Showcase. We first saw the band play opening for Churchill at The Walnut Room way back in October of 2011 when the group was still a solo project for lead vocalist Brent Cowles. Believe it or not, that was my very first show ever reporting for Ultra5280, so seeing this band break up truly marks an end of an era for me in Denver's music scene. Opening for acts like Brandi Carslile,  ZZ Ward, Paper Bird and more, the band was poised to break on a national level - another Mile High success story. Last fall CU Denver's student-run record label CAM Records chose the group to be the focus of their work for the 2013/2014 academic year, assisting the band with the Kickstarter campaign funding their 2013 release Sweet Honey. It has been a true pleasure watching these impressive musicians take flight from their hometown and reach new levels every time we saw them. As purveyors of local talent, the staff at Ultra5280 are disheartened to see them disappear, and can't wait to see what's next for each of the band's members. 

If you'd like to take a quick walk down memory lane, here's all the Ultra5280 articles about the band, and a quick link to some of the latest music.

Usher | 1stBank Center | December 2, 2014 | Review and Photos

I'd like to start this by saying that I sadly never had the opportunity to see Michael Jackson perform, but within the last two years I have seen two of his biggest fans own the stage just as Michael would have if he was still alive today. Last year I got to see Justin Timberlake take over the Pepsi Center on his 20/20 World Tour, and last night I had a chance to see Usher. Based off these two those performances, I think these prodigies to the Prince of Pop can fill the hole in my heart just enough to get by. Usher has always been one of my favorite artists - I can go back in my memory and name every single break-up mixtape I made to his songs. I still remember him and Tyrese going toe-to-toe in an abandoned junkyard in the video for the song "My Way"; I believe it was the first time "dance fighting" was ever introduced. From emotional songs like "Burn" to the biggest dance club party anthem of all time "Yeah", Usher has continued to entertain the world with his unique style and recognizable voice for a a decade now, and it appears he's continuing full speed ahead.

Opening the night was up-and-comer August Alsina. A young performer recently added to Def Jam's acclaimed roster, he's already garnered a huge following, and was a perfect opener for this tour. Judging by the crowd response, it won't be long before Alsina headlines his own tour. A quick set to open the evening, fans braced themselves for the next act: ursher ursher. This current tour, dubbed the URX Tour, is slowly winding down with only a handful of US dates left before it heads overseas. The tour itself is unique in it's focus on the personal patron experience rather than your typical large scale production. Fans have a chance to partake in the ultimate VIP experience which includes an exclusive meet & greet, soundcheck passes, dinner and drinks, a photo-op and much more. Backed by a full band and talented dancers, Usher entertained the 1stBank Center crowd for almost two hours with a tasteful mix of both new material and some old school medleys. Usher has always been well known for his ability to incorporate jazzy dance numbers into his performances, and nothing was more evident than his passion for dance during his live performance. With back up dancers swinging in perfect rhythm to  the subtle yet impressive pyrotechnics and light show, it was truly a great concert experience from beginning to end. Crowd favorites included "Nice & Slow", "You Remind Me", "Burn", and even new hits like the Juicy J collaboration "I Don't Mind", the ultimate love letter to strippers everywhere. In between songs Usher left little time for banter, instead encouraging the crowd to partake in full verse sing-alongs, which went over pretty well. While the men took down notes, the ladies truly benefitted from this show, as many "ooh"s and "ahh"s were directed at the sultry singer.

Like I said before, only a few US dates are left on the tour, but if you're in a nearby city we suggest you splurge a little bit and catch one of music's most recognizable stars of the modern era. Trust me, you will not be disappointed by this stunning show, and fellas can maybe earn some extra brownie points by remembering to bring a lady friend along for the ride.

NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Hometown for The Holidays, Episode 1

To Denver's music scene, the month before Christmas might be more important than any gifts they'll receive this holiday season. The team at 93.3FM KTCL dawn their holly, their jolly, and hunker down in their secret lair beginning in November to decide which local bands deserve a chance at glory this year. For those of you new to this Denver musical holiday tradition, KTCL's "Hometown For the Holidays" competition is the annual chance for locals to have their music critiqued by many of Denver's tastemakers. Out of the hundreds of song entries received, the top ten tracks as voted by the panel become a part of KTCL's radio rotation for a week, allowing listeners to become familiar with the songs and then vote for their favorites using music surveys. The three bands with the most votes play a show at Cassleman's mid-December for a chance to win $1,000 and the opening slot at next year's "Not So Silent Night". Past winners include Churchill, Air Dubai, The Epilogues, and My Body Sings Electric...that's definitely a club any local band would be honored to be a part of. To help celebrate this season of local music domination, we've dedicated the next two weeks of New Music Tuesdays to bands hoping to make their way into the "top ten". This week we talked to two newcomers to the local scene, Amzy and One Flew West, to introduce our listeners to the bands, and see just what it means to be a part of this competition. (questions from Ultra5280 will be marked with "MC" for Maddie Casey, answers will be marked by the band members name)

 

AMZY - Denver, CO - talking with lead singer Brennan Johnson.

MC: Amzy is a fresh face in the local music scene this year, but many of you have been playing in different bands for awhile now. What was it like coming up in the Denver music scene, and what led you all to AMZY?
BJ:  We love Denver's music scene and have always looked at it as the perfect hotspot for new bands. The locals are very engaging and there's a feeling of community as you stand in the crowd during a show... AMZY originally began as an experimental collaboration project between Sean and I. Nick went to high school with Sean and I and had been in a band with me in 2006, but we asked him to "come out of retirement" to play bass. Wes already has experienced fame as the drummer of Denver locals Fox Field Four and we fully support his efforts to play in both bands at once (but we secretly want him for ourselves)... The sense of community really brings us together and doesn't give way to competition. In the end, everybody has a similar dream and wants to have fun along the way. 

MC: You guys won ne of KTCL's Demo Derby's this summer. How was it interacting on such a close level with so many other local artists? Or working with KTCL?
BJ: It was really remarkable for all these great local bands to be in one place together and it gave us an opportunity to discuss music styles and listen to the flavors of the (Denver) scene. Nobody knew who we were and it gave us the opportunity to really put ourselves out there and learn from the bands around us. Working with KTCL is one of those "wouldn't that be awesome?" dreams you have as a struggling local musician. The DJ's have a lot of influence and status in this music scene, but we were gladly surprised by how friendly they were and their eagerness to talk about the "ins" and "outs" of the industry. 

MC: Your music has a bit of an eclectic feel to it - do you identify with any particular genre?
BJ: We're afraid of this question. Seriously, whenever somebody asks us what genre we're in we just look at each other and wait for somebody to give it a shot. We have a "musical ADHD" problem and sometimes our ideas come from opposite ends of the spectrum, but we love experimenting and seeing what we end up with. 

MC: What was it like recording and writing this first EP?
BJ: We wrote and recorded the EP in a house in Dillon, CO with producer Joe Richmond, formerly of Churchill and current drummer of the band Navy. We brought all the equipment in two vehicles and set up our own private recording studio in a living room and played music for 3 days. The entire experience was unforgettable and the quiet mountain solitude gave us a clear perspective to write and be fully creative.

MC: Tell me a bit about your new single "5 to Midnight" that released this past weekend.
BJ: "5 to Midnight" is a tribute to the perspective we have when we are younger. You're always having fun and tend to live in the moment and assume you'll have a "happily ever after" in your future, but too often the transition into adulthood brings a reality that rarely accomadates a dreamer. So we drop the dreaming, quit pretending, and start planning, but we fail to realize that we can maintain that youthful mindset and allow ourselves to have some fun, dream, and have a "happily ever after". 

MC: What's coming up next for AMZY?
BJ: We plan to release another new single in the upcoming weeks leading up to the release off our EP "We Don't Walk We Dance" at the end of the year. We're hoping to celebrate with everyone at our EP Release shows at Moe's BBQ in Englewood on January 23rd. 

MC: "Hometown for The Holidays" has played a significant role in breaking some of Denver's most promising acts on a national level - what does it feel like to be a part of this event?
BJ: At this point in time nothing as been said in regard to the Top Ten, but we're really happy to have been a part of an event that has so many amazing, talented local bands involved. We'll be there regardless to cheer on the winners! 

MC: One last question, so what's AMZY's pre or post-show snack?
BJ: Woah, that's a tricky question. We love to dance with the crowd, so we try to avoid eating anything that would result in a food coma pre-show. However, we can't resist Illegal Pete's and a beer! 


ONE FLEW WEST - a chat with lead singer Linden Jackson

MC: You guys have been more or less performing together since 2010, but under a different name until recently. Tell our readers a little bit about your roots, and the bands slow but steady progression to where you are now.
LJ: Well, the whole thing sort of began during freshman year of high school. Jonah (the drummer) and I were both kinda weird kids who hated our school at the time, so when he asked me to be in a band with him I jumped on the opportunity! From there, he introduced me to David and we all just started writing crappy high-schooley rock songs and over the next 5 years, we just worked as hard as we could to make our band the best thing it could be!

MC: From "Continuum" to now “One Flew West”, why’d you guys finally change your name?
LJ: Its kind of funny because I was never a big fan of the name "Continuum" to begin with, but the main reasons that we changed it was one, because John Mayer has an album called Continuum and that made it pretty much impossible for people to find us online, and two, because there were just so many other bands with the same name that promoters would always screw up our links whenever we would play anywhere. 

MC: For someone who's never heard your band before, how would you describe your music?
LJ: Our music has changed quite a bit since our last record, but I would describe it as heavy, high energy, folk influenced rock. As a songwriter I take a lot of influence from guys like Frank Turner, The Black Keys, Tom Waits, etc.

MC: You guys have taken advantage of the local music scene here, playing with other local groups big and small, and playing a wide variety of shows and venues. What’s it been like growing up and then growing into Colorado’s music scene? 
LJ: Being a part of the Denver/Colorado music scene has been such an insanely rewarding and incredible experience. We have gotten to meet and play with so many talented groups of people, and looking back on the last few years, its so incredible how many people took a chance on us and helped us grow to get where we are at right now.

MC: A few of you are students of the Music & Entertainment Industry Studies program at the University of Colorado Denver…many other local musicians have been a part of that program as well. What’s it like majoring in music in college? 
LJ: So far, being a part of the CU Denver music program is by far the most fun and rewarding thing I've ever done. I just recently decided to start studying music business and its incredible how tied in to the community the program is, as well as how many opportunities can sprout from being a part of it. 

MC: You guys just finished recording a new album at The Blasting Room - what was that like? 
LJ: Recording at the Blasting Room was absolutely out of this world for us. The sound up there is batshit awesome in comparison to anything that we have ever done before, and we ended up with two songs that we are really proud of. Also I've always been into punk rock, so when we first walked in and I saw all those Rise Against and Black Flag records, I was pretty much in heaven.

MC: When can we hear all these new jams? 
LJ: We are going to be dropping both of our new songs "Kind Of Love," and "Silhouette," on Dec 6th. The songs are going to be available on itunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, I Heart Radio, and whatever else you can think of!

MC: Hometown For The Holidays is just around the corner. What does it mean to you all to be a part of this competition? 
LJ: We are incredibly stoked to be a part of the competition this year! Its our first time entering under our new name and we really tried to write one of the best songs we could, but at this point all we can do is cross our fingers and not stress too hard about it. Also, can we just talk about how awesome it is that the folks at KTCL are willing to go through 300+ submissions a year, and give up valuable radio time just so that some deserving local bands can be heard?!? Thats pretty rad. 

MC: Agreed! So much love to the team at KTCL. When can fans see you live next? 
LJ: Our Next show is going to be on Friday Dec 6th at the Marquis! We are going to be the direct support for Chemistry Club's CD Release show. Foxfield Four and Bear. are also on the bill for that show. YAY SCIENCE!

MC: and finally, my “Locals Only” question…what is your band’s favorite pre or post-show snack?
LJ: Oooo thats a hard one...if we are in Denver its gotta be Marquis pizza or Two Fisted Marios, if we are in Fort Collins its definitely Canes Chicken Fingers. Anywhere else, Chipotle wins

Glowing House | EP Review

It's no secret that Denver is a hub for indie gold and an act that’s fairly hard not to fall in love with is a local married duo by the name of Glowing House. Comprised of talented musicians, a picture perfect couple and songs so haunting the lyrics will stick with you long after you doze off to sleep; Glowing House is one local band you don’t want to over look.

They’re putting in the hours and making their dream happen. After recently returning from a European tour they went straight to finishing their new EP and scheduling shows around town. We had the pleasure of getting a first look at their new songs and we have two words to describe them, enlighteningly sad. Jess Parsons, one of the lead vocalist says it perfectly, “We like sad songs that sound happy and happy songs that sound sad.” Their new EP dances off of sad subject matter with a jovial twist. You never know how you’re “suppose” to feel. But, that’s the beauty of art. Which is exactly what their new EP is; a combination of talent, strewn together to create something uniquely haunting.

Although only 3 songs deep, their EP spotlights each musician’s talent seamlessly. Steve Varney’s voice has a sandpapery texture, which is very prominent in “Riding The Ripple.” It’s primal, in a caveman meets Ben Gibbard kind of way and we totally dig it. This song shows a different range from Steve that the others fail to showcase, which is some raw, uncut emotion. At the end of the song, we wanted to cry and couldn’t understand why. Maybe because it was over…

Jess Parsons' dreamy voice shines during, “Balance With Me.” Not quite a love song, we’re unable to pin it’s roots of sadness. We all know what it feels like to lose control over a situation and traipse that tightrope of sanity, “with (your) feet on the rope and arms spread out wide.” Whether that be from a relationship or just life in general, it is oh so relatable.

Their third song, “Getting Thrown” is similar to other things we’ve heard from Glowing House. The duo’s melodic chemistry is uncanny as they synth and slither into your heart. Listening to their new EP as a whole tells a story of getting thrown down, chugging whiskey and taking life on head first.

Looking for more from Glowing House? They’re playing a show at the Hi-Dive tonight with Kyle James Hauser and The Centennial. Get your tickets here: http://www.hi-dive.com/event/675283-glowing-house-single-release-denver/

Fun Fun Fun Fest | So Close, Yet So Far Out

Fun Fun Fun Fest is an incredible festival located in the heart of Austin, Texas. With a lineup catered to please a broad range of festival goers, FFF Fest seamlessly blends together indie, electronic, hip hop, rock, metal, and comedy into one super fun fun fun experience. Located at Auditorium Shores Park with the backdrop of the Austin skyline, FFF promotes creativity, frolicking, and a wee bit of debauchery. FFF fest is the ultimate “anti” festival focusing on celebrating the uniqueness and individuality of both artist and attendees alike.

Color-coded stages make it easy for attendees to see the type of music they want. The Orange Stage boasts the hippest indie rock music, while the Blue Stage is all about shaking that booty with hip hop and electronic sounds, and the Black stage is all about hardcore rock and metal. When the festival is over around 10:00 pm, FFF Nites begin. Local music venues open up to host both well-known and up-and-coming musicians and comedians in SXSW fashion.

Friday

Friday kicked off with lots of fun, fun, and more fun. Although the line to get in was a little long for those who had will call tickets, mostly everyone was in good spirits. Volcom had a skate showcase that featured professional skateboards flying high in the sky with the skyline as their backdrop.

Ginuwine came out wearing very tight white pants and a tight white shirt, and proceeded to do push-ups while playing old school hip hop favorites and even some Michael Jackson. The crowd went wild when he ended his set with his original song "Pony." It was a fantastic way to start the fest.

Wildcat! Wildcat! played right after Ginuwine in the Yellow Stage tent. It was an intimate and beautiful set just as the sun was about to set. They played their hit song "Hero." And the crowd was excited to see the different vibes they would brought to their FFF Nites set at Empire Control Room later in the night. Dinosaur Jr. got the crowd dancing as the sun went down and it started to get a little chilly.

Atmosphere was up next on the Blue Stage and people seemed to be having almost religious experiences. His positive messages and poetic flow transfixed the crowd. His set was definitely one of the best of the weekend. Judas Priest played the Black Stage and they rocked just as hard as they did 40 years ago.

Alt-J closed down the Orange Stage. Despite coming out with a brand new album, Alt-J did the fans a favor by playing all of their old hits. Singing and dancing was had by all until it was time to get down with 2 Chainz on the Blue Stage. Three completely different headliners closed down the first day of the festival.

After the festival was closed, fans flooded into the streets and venues of Austin to track down their favorite underground acts. The Red River District was booming with festival goers bar-hopping from one place to the next to see who was playing where. Wildcat! Wildcat! played at Empire Control Room along with SOHN who also had played at the festival earlier in the day, bringing their soulful slow sound.

Saturday

Although the festival kicked off at 10:30 on Saturday morning, things didn't really get going till later (thanks to all the late Nite fun had the night before).

Volcom hosted a free skate for anyone who wanted to try their luck on the triple half-pipe. Next to the half-pipe was some hilarious old school wrestling happening, complete with neon costumes and muscle men hitting each other with folding chairs.

Comedian Fred Armisen playfully made fun of festivals goers with his full band and silly gray-haired wig. With silly lines like, “I want to take you to a festival so we can make out!” and, “How much does this beer cost?” Portlandia fans were having a blast poking fun at each other.  

Z-Trip was a nice change of pace and wooed the crowd by playing a crazy metal remix of Ginuwine's "Pony." . Z-Trip was particularly badass because he incorporated the three main music genres of FFF Fest into his set: hip hop, rock, and electronic. The Presets brought some electronic funk to the Blue Stage, while the New Pornographers brought an indie upbeat sound to the Orange Stage.

Little known Tinariwen, a band from the West African country Mali, was hands down the grooviest act of the weekend. Although none of their songs are in English, they have a sound that is straight out of the '70s. In full Middle Eastern attire, they make music that sounds like it could come from The Doors if they had made a belly dancing album. They also played a funky set at West Sixth's Belmont.

Nas played the Blue Stage next and the crowd got down to some heartfelt hip hop. Later, it was easy to spot the diehard King Diamond fans, rocking the band's iconic face paint. The metal gods got the crowd riled up and there was a lot of moshing and good spirited debaruchery being had by those in the crowd.

Modest Mouse closed down the Orange Stage and the Festival, with a pretty enchanting ending. Fans sung along to their old favorite songs and danced under the bright stars. Half-way through their set a magical comet lit up the sky flying directly over the stage and afront the skyline. To say it was a perfect moment is an understatement.

Later in the night fans again scurried around the city hoping to find the next cool band. Those who followed Tinariwen to the Belmont got the biggest surprise of the night. Although rumored to have died that morning, Macaulay Culkin and his band The Pizza Underground, played a hilarious set covering the love songs of The Velvet Underground, but instead of being about people...all the songs were about pizza. Free pizza was passed around and the Home Alone fans rejoicde that their beloved Macaulay Culkin was alive and well—and rocking.

Sunday

The last day of FFF Fest was absolutely beautiful. The weather was what Texans dream about after a long, hot summer. The Air Sex Championships started the day off, which had people in stitches with their air-humping and imaginary orgies. Cashmere Cat played some happy, funky beats at the Blue Stage, followed by Ryan Hemsworth, whose visuals were something out of a middle school girl's notebook.

While the Dum Dum Girls brought the girl power to their set, rocking out in their funky outfits, the Flying Lotus set was from another world and, by far, the most unique stage design of the weekend. He played behind a white screen that had fractals and incredible images projected on it. All you could see was his light up glasses. 

The was a lot of hype about Neutral Milk Hotel. The crowd loved the slow melodic songs and the die hard fans knew every word. As Neutral Milk was slowly playing away, The Murder City Devils were tearing up the Black Stage with full force. This crowd vastly differed from the folks at the Orange Stage. They were jumping, shove-dancing, and playing around with everyone next to them. Jumping over to the Blue Stage, Wiz Khalifa tore it up with his mainstream hip hop, and the youthful crowd ate it up and danced till close.

Afterwards the FFF Nites went on and most were hyped about the Garden and Villas show at Red 7. They were everything the crowd had hope for, playing their fan favorites "Black Hills" and "Chemtrails." 

All in all, Fun Fun Fun Fest was a festival that truly embodies the spirit of Austin, Texas. The weather cooperated, the music, across all genres, was on point, and the Modest Mouse meteor is one that'll certainly go down in history as one of the band's (and fans') most magical moments. Till next year, festival goers.

Foo Fighters : North American Tour 2015 Dates Announced

It’s official: Foo Fighters are following up the release of the band’s most ambitious album with its biggest ever North American tour to date.
