Robert Shredford is a reverb-drenched surf rock party from a coastless state.

Featuring Jessi Reed on guitar, Christi Bailey and Mike Adams and drums and keys respectively, and Alia Goldfarb on bass. All members sing.

Friday Night – 3:45pm to 4:30pm @ Odell Brewing Co. | All Ages

Ska, Pop, Punk

Señorita Sometimes frontwoman (Stacy Sevelin) grew up seeing No Doubt in both Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. Gwen Stefani was one of her favorite female singers. It dawned on her that she should try to start up a No Doubt tribute band in Fort Collins. She then quickly begged her bandmates Menyus Borocz (Wire Faces) and Sean Speer (Stella Luce) to play a No Doubt tribute set for Halloween at Surfside7 in 2017. Both miraculously agreed. Stacy then asked Craig Powell to play bass for the show (he was not in Señorita Sometimes at this time). After the successful and fun show, Craig soon joined the band as a full-time bass player! Cassie Cowan joined Señorita Sometimes in late 2018 and plays keys/backup vocals in No Doubt About It!

If you are feeling nostalgic and love No Doubt, you should check out this cover band! Many people have stated that NDAI does a fantastic job and plays an awesome tribute to the band. It really is a fun show and brings you waaaaay back!

Floor Model

– Friday Night – 10:30pm to 11:15pm @ Scrumpy’s Hard Cider Bar and Pub | 21+ – Doom Pop Band

Floor Model is a doom pop band from Northern Colorado, featuring members of Wire Faces, Fierce Bad Rabbit, Somerset Catalog, and EAOD (a love story). If Guided by Voices and Vulfpeck had a baby, she grew up and dropped out of college after battling an addiction to Depeche Mode, she’d think Floor Models were okay in her book.

Choice City Skillet Lickers

– Saturday Night – 5:30pm to 6:15pm @ Prost Brewing Co. & Biergarten | 21+ – Experimental. Grassy. Power-Trio.

The Choice City Skillet Lickers is a who’s who trio of Fort Collins musicians.  Joe Lessard (Head for the HIlls), Taylor Shuck (Woodbelly), and David Jensen (Blue Grama) have combined forces to push the envelope of the ‘bluegrass’ genre.  Their music is indicative of the eclectic influences they share. CCSL is an avenue for all three members to step outside of their everyday creative endeavors in a way that gives the audience a rare glimpse into the late night picking sessions that never make the big stage. This is a jam you won’t want to miss!

I Am the Owl

Friday Night – 11:00pm to 11:45pm @ Hodi’s Half Note | All Ages
I Am The Owl has been described as “punk meets metal from the era when rock gods wielded axes… high volume music that inspires mosh pits”. In an era where many have wondered if rock ‘n’ roll was still alive, I Am The Owl has committed to a no-compromise approach to making heavy music for people who love heavy music.
The evolution of their sound can be heard on the initial singles from their 2nd EP, A Mission To Civilize: Part II, recorded at the world famous Blasting Room studios in Fort Collins, CO. A follow up to their self-produced 2016 release, A Mission To Civilize: Part I, the album was released in early 2018.
Since 2014 the band has been spreading their “Mission to Civilize” throughout Colorado, appearing on stages across the state with the likes of In The Whale, Agent Orange, Counterpunch, Authority Zero, The Yawpers, The Lillingtons, Native Daughters, Elway, and many more.
