The stream of local album releases continues tonight, with another all local music showcase happening at the Bluebird Theater. This time local band Tennis is celebrating the release of their sophomore album Young And Old with the help of three different local supporting acts. The supporting bands should offer quite a variety of styles of music, making the show an intriguing one from start to finish.

Tennis is headlining the evening to celebrate their follow up album Young And Old. Tennis' first album released last year was a surf/coastal rock inspired indie pop album that propelled this band to the spotlight. They returned to the studio for a second album, this time with production help from Patrick Carney of The Black Keys. Their new album incorporates that same, airy-dream surf-pop sound but seems to also explore other forms of pop rock 'n' roll. Check out "Origins".

Mike Marchant is a local singer-songwriter whose mastery at that particular craft has endeared him to many music fans that have had a chance to see him. Performing live with a seemingly endless and ever-changing supply of different local supporting musicians, Mike Marchant creates acoustic folk styled music wrapped with hints of pop and electric rock that work seamlessly with his heartfelt vocal delivery. Check out "You Were A Runner".

Samurai Buck is the project of Denver producer Brian Marcus. Samurai Buck's mission seems to be the change of pace artist in the lineup, as stylistically, Samurai Buck seems the farthest removed from the others in the group. Still, Samurai Buck's experimental electronic sound is quite intriguing - a blend of heavy hip-hop style beats with psychedelic and intelligent dance music influences. Samurai Buck's futuristic sound should get the crowd in the dancing mood. Check out "Riviera".

Moon Tides is an indie surf-pop band from Fort Collins. This band creates short dream-like guitar and percussion driven gems that conjure up images of the sun and sea. The dancey yet atmospheric instrumentation works together with an airy vocal delivery to make a sound with gentle force. Check out "Swimming".

The Bluebird Theater doors open at 7:30PM and the music starts at 8:00PM. This show is all ages and tickets and tickets are $15 at the door. Tickets and more information are available online here.
