Concerted Effort in conjunction with the Hi-Dive is proud to present Le Divorce's video release party on Saturday, March 10. As if the prospect of seeing this acclaimed Denver band and their new video wasn't enough, they will be joined by two other impressive local bands that will make the night a must-see start-to-finish event for indie rock fans. Seeing that all the bands feature styles and influences that stem from many eras of music, it essentially makes the night an encompassing journey through time viewed through the lens of modern rock.

Fresh off the release of their EP The Sting And The Light, Le Divorce returns to the stage for more celebration - this time for the video release of their single "Under The Boxcars". This four-piece band is Denver's premier representative of post-punk and alt-rock, heavily influenced by pivotal bands from the late '80s through mid '90s, but given a fresh interpretation that holds its own today. With performances full of energy and presence, Le Divorce is sure to deliver a party, and if you haven't seen the new lineup yet, you are in for a treat. Check out "Under The Boxcars" in preparation for the video below.

The next band on the bill, Varlet, will bring an indie rock sound rooted from influences a little further down the timeline. Varlet is a five-piece band from Denver with a truly genre bending sound. It is as if they took elements from '60s and '70s psychedelic rock, blended in a little '50s doo-wop and '40s classic country, put in elements of folk rock and jazz, and deliver the resulting sound draped around the framework of modern indie rock. Check out "Dirty Sock".

The night will begin with a performance from locals Rowboat. This evocative band creates a sound that seems to merge acoustic singer-songwriter folk with a subtle yet powerful addition of contemporary atmospherics - almost like a reincarnation of a classic folk-country-blues songwriter with its honest grit. They should evoke a mood of older, simpler times yet keep the listener rooted in the present. Check out "Under Street Lamps".

The Hi-Dive doors open at 9:00PM and the show starts at 10:00PM on Saturday, March 10. The show is 21+ and tickets are $6. Tickets and more information are available online here. (The lineup was recently modified and the link may not yet reflect those changes.)
