If you are a fan of indie music, the Fox Theatre is the place to be on Wednesday, February 1st. The storied Boulder, CO venue will be hosting a lineup of three bands that makes the night especially enticing. Two touring bands will be bringing fresh indie rock sounds, joined by one of Colorado's own premier electro-pop bands. The best shows always have a solid lineup from start to finish, and this night's show is looking to promise just that.

The headliner is Los Angeles indie rock duo El Ten Eleven. This band was formed nearly a decade ago by band members Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty. They create indie rock with an experimental post-rock approach, making music with thick soundscapes and dreamy textures. Amazingly, they perform their characteristic sound using only two people without the help of computers or sequencers, making them not only a joy to listen to but a marvel to see on stage. Kristian Dunn plays guitar and bass while Tim Fogarty will play electronic and acoustic drums, achieving a multi-layered sound by employing the use of looping pedals. Check out "Indian Winter".

Another Los Angeles band, Races, will join the line-up. Races is a six-piece indie rock band with a sound that seems to stem from a multitude of different influences. Their songs all have the unifying framwork of indie rock, but I hear touches of chillwave, dance punk, electro-pop, indie folk and more in their sound throughout their songs. Somehow they manage to make their collection of songs cohesive despite their tendency to incorporate different styles. Check out "Big Broom".

Colorado's own electro-pop duo Flashlights will open up the night. The duo of Ethan Converse and Sam Martin create synth heavy indie pop gems that combines the retro swagger of new wave with futuristic goodness, resulting in some sweet dance floor ready music. Check out the new single from their upcoming album, "Fireworks".

The doors open at 8:30PM on Wednesday, February 1st and the music begins at 9:00PM. The show is all ages and tickets are $10 advance, $12 day of show (add $2 if you are under 21). Tickets can be purchased online here.
