Denver has live music behind just about every corner, and tonight I'm headed to the Lion's Lair to check out a mix of rock bands. Lion's Lair has played host to many different rock bands for quite some time, and it's about time I check out what they have going on there. Tonight the Lion's Lair will be hosting two national bands and one local band. The national bands are new to me, but the local band is one of the first bands I've covered on this blog, so it'll be nice to see how they've progressed.

The headliner is Hussle Club, a five-piece band from New York created by Prince Terrence, former live drummer for Santigold, Spank Rock, Hearts Revolution, and Major Lazer. This band produces electro post-punk with a touch of industrialism. They create dark, energetic music that sounds like club music for punk rockers. Check out "Children of the Underground".

Number Station is a local psychedelic garage rock band. I've covered this band twice before on this blog, but since then they have undergone some lineup changes and I'm curious to see the new version of the band. Guitarist Tom Mestnik, drummer Adam Snook, and guitarist Jay McBurney remain, joined by new bassist John Jarvinen and new singer Kate Whysner. Check out "Digital Ashes".

Big Tree is a five-piece band from New York that also boasts a psychedelic rock sound, although this band approaches psychedelia in the pop rock direction. Their music sounds like a modern approach to '60s sunshine pop with a twist. Check out "This Fall".
