Sunday if you weren't at The Larimer Lounge you missed an opportunity to catch some of the most talented musicians in the Denver Area.  A who's who of Denver's elite were on display not only playing but also in attendance.  It was also a springboard for the newly launched Inca House Collective.  What exactly is the Inca House Collective?  According to their Facebook page it is:

The Inca House Collective is a way for Denver-based artists and businesses to combine their resources and create a mutually-beneficial coalition. It began as a few musicians helping each other out with things like design and booking, but has since blossomed into a larger network that encompasses anything from endorsements and promotion to recording and merchandising. The concept is simple... at it's foundation, the Inca House Collective is a family, a network of people working together for the greater good of all involved, as well as the greater good of Denver's artistic community. Everyone involved in the collective has something unique to offer, and by pooling these resources, the Inca House Collective is able to afford those involved opportunities that would be unavailable or unaffordable otherwise. Although it began as part of the music scene, the Inca House Collective is eagerly branching out around Denver, and is already in the process of joining forces with clothing companies, graphic artists, bars/restaurants, promoters, etc. It is our hope that as the collective continues to grow, so too will parties involved, and we can continue to make Denver one of the top artistic cities in the country.

The Epilogues' Video Premier at the Bluebird Theatre-Review

We caught Mr Right at 8:00 as the room was starting to fill up. We are lucky enough to have seen Mr Right on multiple occasions in the past, and the progress they have made was definitely evident on Wednesday evening. Front man Drew Torres' humor breaks the ice between songs and his crisp, clear vocals shape the band's sound. His multi-tasking skills add a wow factor as he tackles covering the keys, vocals, and bass for the band. His bandmates, brothers Adam and Jarrod Barraza play drums and guitar, respectively, as well as supporting vocals. The band's original songs sound clean and cohesive, a clear indicator of the fact that they've been playing together for a very long time. We will definitely be keeping an eye on these guys as they continue to grow a following here in Denver. We'll keep you posted!

Next up was Monroe Monroe. The term indie is often thrown around in the music scene these days, and Monroe Monroe may indeed be indie, but they are also rock and roll. With strong riffs (guitar and vocals Tavis Alley), intense bass lines (Lauren Gale). precise drumming (drums and loops Matthew Morse), and the vocals of Bella Abbatecola, Monroe Monroe gives us a sound reminiscent of a cross between the Kings of Leon (a little more rock) and The Foo Fighters (a little less rock).

Input took the stage after Monroe Monroe, hyping us up for an awesome hip hop show. His DJ and beats engineer warmed up the crowd with a dub-step intro, and then laid down some impressive tracks for Input to rap over. Input's stage presence is definitely there; his passion and drive is evident in his performance and he knows how to work a crowd. It seems, however that he may still be searching for individuality in his sound. His tracks mirror the indie hip hop scene in some places, but the mainstream rap scene in others. I'd love to see Input polish his sound a little bit more, bringing something unique we haven't seen before to the table. In the meantime, I have much respect for his rhymes and the meaning behind them. 


Continuing with the indie rock theme, next up was My Body Sings Electric. This was our first time seeing this band and right away we got the impression that they aim for perfection every time they step onstage. Backed by an impressive stage of strobes and visuals with the band's name on them (they make sure you know who they are) they commanded the stage with a confident presence. Even when technical difficulties halted the show in the middle of the set, they improvised, asking the crowd for "corny jokes". Castro was really hoping Bryn would volunteer her Lady Gaga joke, but she totally chickened out. Once MBSE was back on track, it was all business with hit after hit including a cover of MGMT's "Electric Feel," and their own "Step into the Light" which the crowd seemed to know word for word. Make sure you pick up their latest release, "Changing Color."
