#UMS2018 Day Three is here! Stay Sane for the Duration – Our Hour-by-Hour Tips are Here!

July 29, 2018 Off By Billy Thieme

Heading into the final turns of this magic, musical, love weekend, the Underground Music Showcase really hits its stride for day three with more, more, and more. More bands, even bigger names, more friends (new and old), more beer, more booze, and more fun.

Here’s the DenverThread hour-by-hour lineup for Day 3, Sunday, July 29

1:20 p.m.Sunday

Spirettes – Main Stage @ Goodwill

Spooky distorted guitars with shoegaze ghostly female vocals.

2:00 p.m.

Hello, Mountain (Solo Set) – Moe’s Original BBQ

Indie guitars, with a driving rhythm section that brings soulful melodies and riffs floating into your face.

3:00 p.m.

Mirrors and Lights – Moe’s Original BBQ

A diverse musical background of blues, rock, Celtic, and folk, gives Mirrors and Lights an original sound – unique covers.

4:00 p.m.

Modern Leisure – Moe’s Original BBQ

Beatles-esque pop from Casey Banker, one of Denver’s most prolific guitarists. Not to be missed!

5:00 p.m.

American Grandma – Banded Oak Brewing

Beautiful, etherial, sweet indie melodies and thoughtful lyrics. Just like grandma used to bake.

6:00 p.m.

Codename: Carter – Gary Lee’s Motor Club & Grub

If you only pay attention to one band in this UMS, make it Codename: Carter. Their mission – and your life – may depend on it.

8:00 p.m.

Pale Sun – Irish Rover

Pale Sun shines a new kind of incredible noise into your soul, where volume replaces holiness, and pure sound becomes the light.

9:00 p.m.

Plasma Canvas

– Gary Lee’s Motor Club & Grub

Fucking fantastic, in your face, gob-hocking punk rock, perfect for old-fashined slam dancing!

10:00 p.m.

Space Jail  – Skylark Lounge

This band deserves to be known – if only because of their super cool Adult Swim name.

11:00 p.m.

Dirty Few

– Irish Rover

While lesser bands may have crumbled under the weight of colossal rock & roll bummers, Dirty Few has not only weathered the storm, but emerged victorious.

12:00 a.m.Monday


– The Hi Dive

From the bowels of a different time in Denver, Kurt Ottoway’s Tarmints holds the trophy for one of Denver’s very best-ever bands. Not to be missed!


  • Billy Thieme

    Aging punk rocker with a deep of all things musical and artistic, enough to remain constantly young and perpetually mystified. Billy has journalistic dreams, but of a decidedly pastoral, Scottish nature.
