Seventy of Denver's best hometown bands will play the Westword Music Showcase along with national acts Shakey Graves, the Revivalists, Cut Copy, Bob Moses, COIN and A R I Z O N A, on Saturday, June 24. We reached out to the local outfits to learn more about their music and their relationship to Denver.
Here's what The Nuns of Brixton had to say:
Westword: How would you describe your sound?
The Nuns of Brixton: We've been described as a mix of funk, reggae and a punch in the face. Basically, the soundtrack of many a punk-rock warlord.
How has Denver influenced your sound?
The magical sunsets really bring out the tender side of the demons we summon to construct our sound.
What could Denver do to better support musicians?
Require every promoter to end an evening at the venue with a hug and a kiss for every member of the band.
