UMS Night One Travelogue: Hot White at Three Kings, Popwreck at Moe's Barbecue and more

UMS Travelogue, Night One
07.22.10 | Baker District, South Broadway

The first day of the UMS festival, a Thursday, was what you might expect in terms of attendees -- mostly other people in bands or those who are clued into the fact that there is plenty of great music coming from Colorado. But it's rare to see so many of these people in one place, and that may have weirded some people out, but for me, it was pleasant running into friends and colleagues.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
