The Hi-Dive is at it again with another night to remember. This time, Concerted Effort is proud to present an indie pop-rock show that fans of the genre won't want to miss. On Wednesday, April 25th two national acts will be coming through town, turning the idea of pop music slightly on its head, while a relatively new Denver band will get the night started with some fun music of their own.

The headliner is Oberhofer, a band based out of New York by way of Tacoma, WA. The project of Brad Oberhofer, this four-piece band crafts indie-pop that seems to have a bit of garage/surf/noise influence to it, but also a young and energetic quality to it that sets it apart. Brad Oberhofer's distinct vocals seem to be spurred from a bit of youthful angst, yet balanced with a fun instrumental sound, catchy melodies, and plenty of "oh-ohs". Check out "Away Frm U".

Young Man joins the night's lineup, an indie-pop band from Chicago. This self-described "creative pop" five-piece band merges retro-esque indie rock with shades of folk to create a sound that isn't really either, but delightful nonetheless. They create a sort of soft coastal/tropical sound that is met with a pop-like danceability.
Check out "Fate".

Ned Garthe will open the show as local support. What began as a solo project eventually evolved into a four-piece band. As a solo project, Ned Garthe leaned toward the Americana sound, but as a full band they should combine psychedelic rock and a hint of pop in there as well. This band is still pretty new and haven't released any studio recordings yet, so come discover their sound first-hand!

The Hi-Dive doors open on Wednesday, April 25th at 8:00PM, and the music starts at 9:00PM. The show is 18+ and tickets are $10. Tickets and more information are available online here.
