The Velveteers

The Velveteers are an American Rock outfit that is the epiphany of punk with the aggressive sound and grungy wisdom that transcends through the Siren like power of Demi Demitro's (frontwomen/lead guitar) voice. Through the distorted guitar riffs and thunderous drums they lure their audience with vibes that come right out of a classic horror flick.

Ned Garthe Explosion

10 trillion years ago, when dinosaurs and dragons fought with spells and shit, a band was formed.

From the fiery depths of Mt. Doom the great volcano brought the four men to life. Out of the lava, four dudes naked as hell crawled out into the world. Fire n' shit was all over the place. This super rad wizard with a kick ass beard named all the dudes; Ned, Stuart, Tyler, and Spencer all ancient forgotten names from a forgotten language from a forgotten galaxy. The wizard gave the dudes some killer instruments that sounded crazy good. The four rad bros rocked through the ages.

Plastic Daggers

"They won't break the skin but you may leave with some bruises." 

Smashed drum kits, blown speakers, and deafeningly loud, Plastic Daggers embody the raw, unfiltered, noise laden rock n' roll that you've been longing for. Dark and heavy but electric and full of pent up aggression, the deceivingly dangerous duo fuse a punk rock attitude, ear-splitting distortion, borderline manic drums, and high-energy vocals into one raucous live show. Throw out your suit and tie, trash that acoustic guitar, smoke your first cigarette and break something. 

Members Keaton Kidder (bass/vocals) and Jordan Palmer (drums/vocals), think less is more. Recently featured in Westword Magazine’s article, The Eight Denver Bands That Should Break Nationally, writer Brett Callwood said, "They don’t need anybody else; as a two-piece, they’re making enough uncompromising noise to match bands with way more members.” 

The band released their debut album, Shotgun EP on Sailor Records (Denver, CO.) in Dec. of 2016 and performed as an official artist at SXSW 2017. They are currently recording their sophomore album which will be released in early 2018. They've gotten the opportunity to perform alongside some killer bands such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Red Fang, '68, ..And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, and many more.
