Doors: 7:00 // Show 8:00
Presale: $7 // Day of Show $9
SYCDVK is a Denver-based conceptual music project with roots in rock, jazz, and alternative genres. Groove oriented rhythms, complexly intelligent guitar work, and crooning vocals contribute to the bands unique sound that has been likened to the sounds of Radiohead, Soundgarden, Frank Zappa, and a hint of Frank Sinatra. The band released their debut album "Aubrey" in 2017 to local acclaim, and was named one of Denver's bands to watch by 303 Magazine. Their new conceptual EP "Lurking Earthlings" was released in April 2018
Members include college friend and bassist, Peter Warekois; drummer, Chris Geary; and saxophonist, Miles Mckee. Denver Native and “open mic” guru, Nic Jay rounds out the sound on vocals. SYCDVK creates a live experience that will be stuck in your head for days showcased in notable performances that include opening for acts such as Andy Frasco, The Nth Power, and Leon Bridges.
SYCDVK has toured around the country, and has amassed a strong following in their home state of Colorado.
The Nightshades blend the sounds of hard rock, metal, jazz, R&B, and soul under a large funk rock umbrella. The group takes pride in creating an environment that urges people to shake their bodies. Putting strong intention into the art of composition, the band has given great attention and nuance to each song.
The Nightshade’s emergence in the Fort Collins Music scene has been similar to their music: smooth, driving, and precise. Five of the six met in The Make More Music Battle, 3 of whom were part of the winning band. The six technically proficient players include: Sumer Albright, vocals; Lily Berryman, bass; August Luc, Saxophone; Greg McKittrick, keyboard; Avery Berryman, Drums; Christian Nyzio, Guitar. If you want to get down to sauce town, don’t skip on The Nightshades.
