Emergency Pullout (EPO)
Emergency Pullout hails from Denver, Colorado where a young music scene has been born. From this new scene bands like The Fray, 3oh!3, The Flobots, Devotchka, and Tickle Me Pink have put Denver on the map. While other multi-platinum artists like One Republic and Rise Against call Denver a second home. Denver is now in the spotlight to bring more great music to the world. Emergency Pullout (or EPO for short) is ready to take on the task and has been working hard making name for themselves in the Mile High City. Playing the cities best local music venues like the legendary Herman's Hideaway and the new local favorite Moe's Original BBQ and Bowling, being featured on 93.3 KTCL's Local's Only Radio Show, playing with up and coming national acts like Warner Drive and Tommy and the High Pilots, and being selected to play in Westword's Best of the West Competition. EPO has been hailed as one of the most original bands by making their own style of funk/rock with a touch of blues and a hint of soul that can best be described as music that makes you want to dance. Their self-produced debut EP "Your Future Depends On It" available on itunes and local record stores in Denver has people abuzz about a great new sound. The members of EPO have known each other since high school and have been in various projects throughout the years but came together with their desire to make great music in 2009. Tyler Munkres brings the beats on the drums, Erik Smiley funks it up on the bass, Eric Sturgeon lays down the intricate guitar melodies, and Dan Hammermiester soothes the soul with his passionate voice. Together they are Emergency Pullout, the best thing to happen since the state since gave you your medical marijuana card.
Sound Traffic, driven by a lust to write, perform, and enjoy music, formed in late 2007. Blending Rock, Indie, and Punk they have managed to spark an interest worthy of a second glance in Denver's diverse music scene, and with a growing unwavering fan base they sure to surprise even you. Ask the band what makes them special and the may say "where's the beef?" Prod further and they'll say "our fans! After every show they let us know what the liked and didn't like. It's our relationship with them that makes us write, and perform more passionately every time. We really just can't get enough!"

Boulder, Colorado based Vinegar Tasters attempts to break down barriers surrounding traditional discourse in the world. Blending musical styles and incorporating many influences, their intent is to give listeners a new way of thinking accompanied by a new style of music.
The painting ‘The Vinegar Tasters’ (sometimes known by other titles) is a classic Chinese allegorical artwork depicting the three dominant modes of philosophy in Chinese tradition. Each philosopher, tasting life and the world, interprets it differently, yet they are not incompatible. We try to foster that type of outlook about the world and try to bring together peoples with different backgrounds around a common love of music. As with the painting, each listener will get out of the music something different than their neighbor or friend.
PBR, Colfax, tramp stamps, truckers, rock climbing, fake people, ripping rifts off of other bands, tilt-a-whirls; that's the world of the CARNIE BUMS. Playing blue-collar garage rock that combines witty lyrics with retro rock, blues, honky tonk, groove rock, and more the CARNIE BUMS delivery an energetic and fun live rock show. Three songwriters, three guitarists who switch between lead, rhythm, and bass and all share lead vocal duties lead to a setlist that sounds different from song to song.
We like cheap beer, cheap women, and cheap bars to hang out in. The CARNIE BUMS play rock music for the people who work 9-5 and just want to let loose on the weekends.
