UMS 2017 Playlist: Colfax Speed Queen at 3 Kings Tavern

Here they are playing “Grease Up the Sheets” that Thursday, helping a lot of people break their promises to themselves to take it easy the first night.

There’s a lot to see and hear during the four days of Denver’s Underground Music Showcase. With around 350 bands to choose from and a finite amount of time and energy, there’s just no way you can do it all.

We all try, though, and in our efforts to see every good thing, we captured some of it to share with you.

Over the next week or so, we’ll release some of the video Kevin shot so you can see what you missed or relive a UMS highlight.

First up, Colfax Speed Queen.

The Denver music scene mainstays and UMS veterans make short work of egging crowds on into a sweaty frenzy every year, and 2017 was no different. Here they are playing “Hooked” on Thursday, helping a lot of people break their promises to themselves to take it easy the first night.
