One Flew West
Formed in the summer of 2010, One Flew West delivers a live show that hits you in the face with the force equivalent to a kick from John Claude Van Damme. Blending the sounds of rock and roll with folk and pop, the band is a force to be reckoned with. OFW was a Top 3 Finalist in Channel 93.3's Hometown for the Holidays 2014, with their single entitled "Kind of Love". In the spring of 2015, they also performed at Channel 93.3's Keggs & Eggs 10 Year Anniversary. They band won a Westword Music Award under the Folk category in 2015. CBS Denver named OFW a band to watch for in 2016."
One Flew West has performed with many notable acts, including: The Dirty Heads, 3OH!3, The Devil Makes Three, The Wombats, Brick+Mortar, Joywave, Trampled By Turtles, The Unlikely Candidates, Saints of Valory, Barcelona, From Indian Lakes, The Spill Canvas, The Wild Feathers, and Highly Suspect.
The Social Animals
The Social Animals are a full time, van-living young band. They speak through elegantly sarcastic, thoughtful lyrics with memorable melodies splattered across a canvas of indie rock instrumentation. They don’t do backflips at their live shows or slide across their knees into guitar solos. Instead, they play their music passionately and honestly, carrying both the intensity to move feet and the delicacy to keep them still. Between songs, their dry commentary on the status of their lives and the world around them appeals to the type of person who, perhaps, spends time actually reading through a band bio.
Releasing their debut EP, “Formative Years” in late summer of 2016, The Social Animals have laid a sturdy foundation for the character and direction of the band. Songs like “Let Me Go” marry the grittiness of an honest band cramped in a Chevy Express with the pop sensibility of Tom Petty. “I Guess In America” offers a tongue-in-cheek outlook on the process of dealing with personal sadness under the seemingly comfortable umbrella of the U.S., and the privileges (or lack thereof) that come with it.
