Colorado’s Velveteers become Gothic
Friday. Boulder hard-rock trio The Velveteers created a lot of hype for a band without a full-length album. That changed on October 8, when the group, led by Demi Demitro, released the fiery “Nightmare Daydream,” a mascara-soaked grip of baritone riffs and melodic, howling vocals driven by a pair of drummers. It does not hurt that Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, who previously produced for the Denver indie band Tennis, borrowed his sonic sensitivity to the album.
The Velveteers will headline Gothic Theater Friday, November 26 with Dreadnaught and Tøris. The doors open at 19.00, show at 8. for ages 16 and up. 3262 S. Broadway and Englewood. Capture the group while still playing at venues of this size. Tickets: $ 18 via axs.com. – John Wenzel
