There's a show coming up featuring music that'll not only rock your socks off, it just might transport you to a different space and time completely. This is music for people of action. People who've ever found themselves in an abandoned warehouse trying to figure out if they've been setup after a planned diamond heist goes wrong. People who've ever been paid to throw a boxing match but bet the pay-off money on themselves, won the fight anyway, and accepted the fact they'll have to flee from gangsters. People who've fled to Mexico after committing a bank robbery, only to find themselves in a vampire den masquerading as a strip club. People whose wedding was brutally attacked, got shot in the head and left for dead, then came back from a coma years later and used their assassin skills to exact some revenge. Or, people who have seen events like these play out in film and have wondered what kind of kick ass music was playing in the background to drive these crazy plot lines.
This Wednesday night at Cervantes' Other Side, Tone Dynamix will be presenting four bands that create music that sounds like it belongs in any one of those scenes. Each band has gritty, loud, psychedelic rock 'n' roll that adds an epic atmosphere wherever it is played. If you know what films I was referencing above and remember the sweet music that graced each one of those soundtracks, you will not want to miss this show.
The headliner is Delware formed, California based psychedelic rock outfit Spindrift. Even if the name doesn't sound familiar, if you are a film buff there is a good chance you've heard their songs and didn't even know it. These guys make music that sounds fit for fantastical films, and their sound is highly influenced and inspired by spaghetti westerns. Their music has been featured on a long list of soundtracks, most notably in Quentin Tarantino's Hell Ride. Their rock music is both crazy and cool, and when you hear it it'll get your imagination going. Check out "Theme From Confusion Range".

Colfax Speed Queen is a rock 'n' roll band from Denver. This four-piece band uses loud riff heavy guitar, deep and fluid bass guitar, pounding drums, and crashing keyboards to deliver the very essence of rock 'n' roll right to the listener's ear drum. Their raw high-energy vintage punk garage sound will definitely please rock fans. Check out "Fiends In The Night".

Max Pain and the Groovies are a rock band from Salt Lake City. These guys combine the psychedelic sounds of the desert with the attitude of rock 'n' roll to make hard-hitting music from their five-piece band. They quickly became favorites for their style in their hometown and are coming to Denver to share their infectious sound. Check out "Piano".

Dark Seas is also a rock band from Salt Lake City, and they admit that they owe their existence to the band just mentioned above. With a slightly more atmospheric and experimental psychedelic approach, this band also delivers energetic throwback punk-garage styled rock 'n' roll. Check out "Wilted Spirit".
