Nate Cook of the Yawpers
The Yawpers craft tunes that are engrossed in creative context. Some might recall edges of the mid-1900s Delta blues, but only if those lived-in riffs were played by the MC5, broadcast through booming stadium speakers and drenched with pounds of fuzzy distortion and full-throttled punk rock energy. For what it’s worth, a friend at their aforementioned SXSW show called them “a bluesy Melvins.” They conduct parallel frequencies with the ferocious and raw proletarian roots of Uncle Tupelo, the burning-hot thrashings and cavernous sonic space of Hot Snakes, and mix in derisive scrutiny that brings to mind Ween or the Minutemen (and might we add that Cook is the spitting image of D. Boon).
The Yawpers come out of some beer-drenched hole in Denver, full of fuzzy slide guitar with one ear towards 1970s rock and roll and another towards 1960s Delta blues.

Grayson County Burn Ban
The stories come from the fields we roamed in and the friends we took one for. But hopefully they do not end there and if you wanna have a good time we can all sit around and tell some stories. Maybe we will realize that we have been friends all along.
Bison Bone is a working class cosmic country band from Denver, CO. Roots music coupled with a dark country feel, that give way to a sound blending psychedelic rock and americana splash. They have shared the stage with the Israel Nash, Susto, Corb Lund, American Aquarium, Midnight River Choir, Roses Pawn Shop, Susto, Goodnight Texas and The 4onthefloor.
