Indie Rock Night at Tier Two Live

October 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

People In General – Fort Collins indie poppers are aptly named for the theme of their upcoming single “icicic.” Seeking universality in songwriting is usually a great idea. If lightning strikes and the writer finds a deeply human moment experienced by not just one demographic, but, well, people in general, that sentiment can make for a great tune.

Tiny Humans – High energy 3 piece band out of Denver with a mix of emo, garage rock, punk and grunge. Tiny Humans consists of Chris Mercer on guitar and vocals, Dave Wolfkowski on bass and Zack Noe on drums. Formed in 2020 over the pandemic, after Chris broke up their previous band Sliver. Dave also plays in a band called Swindlin Hearts and Zack use to play in a band called Alter Girls.

Interpretive Tyranny – Denver Alt Rock band Interpretive Tyranny, Connor on Guitar, Hayden on Drums, Alex on Bass, and Marcus at Lead Vocal.

All Ages!! $10 suggested donation at the door.
Doors: 6:30 PM
Show: 7:00 PM

Event is possible with grant support from Lafayette Cultural Arts Collective and Colorado Creative Industries
