[Denver Event] The Underground Music Showcase 2019

Rapidly approaching, from July 26th through the 28thDenver’s preeminent indie music festival, The Underground Music Showcase has announced its lineup for 2019. After updating its format last year, and adding a plethora of new stages and venues, which now totals four outdoor main stages and over 20 indoor venues, The UMS looks to once again take the city by the reigns for one amazing weekend in late July. Dotting the top of this year’s bill are the likes of Empress Of, Honne, Chicano Batman, Black Mountain, Tuxedo, Earthgang, and Still Woozy for a certifiably heavy hitting slate of headliners; but as always, the talent buyers for the UMS have flexed their mid-card and local muscles just as hard.

Additional national support includes Yves Tumor, DRAMA, LEIKELI47, Y La Bamba, Miya Frolick, Gardens & Villa, Tessa Violet, Spooky Mansion, Greyhounds, Dressy Bessy, DBUK, Kainalu, Clavvs, Rapperchicks, Rich Jones, Divino Niño, Parallelephants, Deezie Brown, and Garrett T Capps. Coming out of Colorado, we’re getting perked up for the much buzzed about set from synth-pop duo xOxford (pronounced Oxford) who will be making their live debut at the festival, as well as Mile High stalwarts including Falcon Punch, YASI, Andy Immerman, Nasty Nachos, Bud Bronson & The Goodtimers, DeCollage, Milky.WAV, and loads more.

 

As always, we will be out in full force during the hot, end-of-july weekend, so be on the lookout for your Ninja fam! Stream the official UMS 2019 playlist below, get your weekend passes for just $50, and single day tickets for the 2019 Underground Music Showcase here.

[Indie/Pop] Nived – Shame

Nived
Shame

It’s always exciting seeing a new project come to life. Today we share with you one such instance with the debut of Nived via the single, “Shame.” With such a strong first step, Nived is taking a stance as an artist that everyone needs to know.

“Shame” blurs the lines between genres, imploring sensibilities from indie, to pop to soulful R&B. This sensual mixture of styles may be hard for some to manage, but Nived’s superb songwriting and tastefully catchy elements from the instrumental to the vocal lead to an addictive hit record. Look out for more from Nived and stay up to date with what’s coming through his social media. You’re among the first on-board, so make sure to share with your amigos so you can be that cool, hip friend that finds the gems early.
