It's Groundhog Day - that festive time of year that calls for extreme celebration. Luckily, the Bluebird Theater is hosting a show tonight that should get the celebration rolling. Four local bands will be showcased at the Bluebird Theater tonight, providing a mix of indie rock that will help spark all the fun. Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted six more weeks of winter, and with a storm brewing he just may be right, but the mix of music featured tonight should provide warmth.
The headliner is Denver/Boulder based band Tantric Picasso. This five-piece band creates music that is like taking a psychedelic trip back into the past. They make retro sounding psychedelic indie rock that experiments with elements of blues, jazz, electronica and folk, resulting in a sound that is rooted in the past but definitely has an eye toward the future. Check out "Bob Saget's Shit Eating Grin".
Tommy & The Tangerines is a local six piece band that's all about having fun. They have an infectious indie pop-rock sound and strong stage presence that makes this band a joy to watch. They combine a host of genres in their overall pop-rock sound, but they are known for injecting a lot of soul and feeling into their music. Check out "Face".
The Marrow is a local five-piece band with a very unique and captivating sound. They create experimental rock that combines jazz, folk, and touches of world music with psychedelia to make music that is refreshingly different. Their live sets are awesome to watch, as it allows their sometimes unusual instrumentation to come to life. Check out "Lady Lizbeth".
The night will begin with the local three-piece band Safe Boating Is No Accident. This band is another experimental indie rock band with a an avant-garde approach to folk music. There is a strong acoustic framework to the sound, but it has bluesy electronic rock elements and ambient sound draped around it. Check out "Cancer Wing".
The Bluebird Theater doors open at 7:30PM and the show begins at 8:00PM. The show is all ages and tickets are $15. Tickets and more information are available online here.
