Description: 6 pm doors 7 pm show BIG DOPES : Colorado via St. Louis indie-crooners. LONNIE FISHER & THE FUNERAL : Psychedelic indie-rock from LFK record release party FRITZ HUTCHISON : KC's favorite son. More about Big Dopes: "Big Dopes’ 2019 album Crimes Against Gratitude was simply one of the most meaningful records out of the realm of indie rock and power pop that year. With tastefully fuzzy melodies the band’s poignant and touchingly poetic lyrics stripped bare the pretense that coats too much modern popular music." Tom Murphy, QUEEN CITY SOUNDS AND ART Big Dopes recalls the loose, lighthearted feel of 90s alternative and indie, like Built to Spill and Pavement. Lead songwriter Eddie Schmid uses a playful, conversational baritone to sing through neuroses about long-distance relationships, being a houseguest, and wasting money on busted headphones. In August 2021, the Denver band released "Lovers on the Weekdays," the first single from their sophomore album Destination Wedding, due November 5, 2021. With that came the band's first official tour, taking them through the Midwest and Colorado's Front Range. In 2019, the band released its debut album Crimes Against Gratitude. It was named one of the best albums of the year by Birdy Magazine, and one of the Top Colorado Albums of 2019 by Colorado Public Radio. Submitted by: Big Dopes Big Dopes
