New York outfit DIIV have toured internationally in support of their acclaimed 2016 sophomore release, Is the Is Are. Formed and led by Zachary Cole Smith in 2011, DIIV are known for their immersive take on dream-pop that weaves elements of shoegaze, krautrock and post-punk throughout – a sound which has earned the band comparisons to greats like The Cure and The Smashing Pumpkins. This will be DIIV’s first show in Denver since late 2015 and certainly one to remember.
The all-female outfit, Candace will support. This trio makes swelling and sun-soaked psychedelic dream pop that has the power to brighten even the gloomiest of days around their hometown of Portland, OR. Having shared the stage with the likes of La Luz, Rubblebucket and Sunflower Bean, their latest album, New Future was released last year via Found Object Records.
Surf-inspired bedroom indie poppers Slow Caves round out the bill as local support. Based in Fort Collins, CO., this quartet is in the midst of a huge 2017 having already dropped a new EP, Desert Minded (Old Flame Records) in March and played a handful of sets at SXSW. The band will continue to tour throughout the year. Take a listen to these artist’s music below:
