The Underground Music Showcase — resilient as a very cool and fun and lovable cockroach — will be back in 2019.
Two big Denver music festivals have tapped out for the year, but not the UMS. It returns July 26-28.
The festival is now in its 19th year, having grown from a one-night showcase to a multi-day, several-hundred-act festival and surviving many changes in ownership and leadership along the way. (For the uninitiated, please see our oral history here.)
This year, again under the ownership of Two Parts, they’re promising new outdoor stages, new interactive concepts and new stage locations.
I’d like to formally request the return of Alvvays, but I doubt anyone will listen.
