Leah Kate announces her new EP Alive and Unwell out October 28. Kate also releases her new single “Monster” via 10K Projects/MDDN.

Tapping into her signature rock-leaning sound, “Monster” serves as the ultimate clap back to the haters. “Go run your mouth and keep putting dirt on my name,” she sings before diving into the chorus, “watch me turn into a monster.” As the verses continue, Leah highlights the sad extent trolls will go to try to bring her down before delivering the ultimate f-you, “but when you make me famous, you’ll be the first one I thank.”


L0L0 released her new EP debbie downer

Debbie Downer

Along with the EP, LØLØ shares lead single and angst-ridden ballad “ boohoo” in which she comes to terms with the harsh realities of growing up. Beginning with a simplistic piano melody and ending with a chorus of jarring electric guitars and aggressive drum kits, the track demonstrates the complexity to maturing in more ways than one.

Pale Waves

Pale Waves at Marquis Theater

Denver, CO

September 28, 2022

Pale Waves released their 3rd album Unwanted in August on Dirty Hit. The album features singles including “Lies”, “Hard Way” “Reasons to Live”, “Jealousy” and “Clean.”

Pale Waves just finished a tour opening up 5 Seconds of Summer. Now they begin their headlining tour. Pale Waves is front woman Heather Baron-Gracie (she/her); drummer Ciara Doran (they/them); guitarist Huge Silvani (he/him) and bassist Charlie Wood (he/him). The world was first introduced to this Manchester band with their debut album My Mind Makes Noises. They followed it up Who Am I?


Unwanted, a body of work informed by Pale Waves’ personal and artistic journey that reaches out into the passionate community of misfits and LGBTQIA+ fans around the band, tapping into darker emotions than ever before while also striking a fresh tone of defiance. “It was really the only thing this album could be called,” continues Heather. “It’s bold and unapologetic, and that’s what the Pale Waves community is about. We don’t need to fit a perfect mold, we don’t need to apologize for being ourselves, and we won’t change for anyone. That acceptance is what connects us.”

Pale Waves has evolved over time. Originally seen as a new goth band, they have matured into a rock band that is one part Garbage and one part Franz Ferdinand. They are a guitar driven rock that is aggressive and unforgiving but not Unwanted.

The Denver stop is part of their North American Headlining Tour.

Sundown Colorado

Denver, CO

September 24, 2022

2-11 pm

Tickets are available on Eventbrite starting at $44.

The sober curious movement is impacting where Americans are drinking, including whether alcohol is even served at all. Sundown Colorado, a music festival focusing on healthy nightlife, mindfulness and community, will take place at Downtown Denver’s Tivoli Quad on September 24, 2022. The Line-Up is International DJ star Curbi will headline the festival, with DJ sets by SkiiTour, N2N, DoubleCrush and a stage takeover by the NYC party crew Body Lvnguage.

Ignight Entertainment, who creates lit wedding, FX and festival experiences for music lovers, along with Secret Dance Addiction, which is in its third year of hosting alcohol free nightlife events, are producing the festival alongside 303 Magazine. After several of 303’s articles featuring sober parties went viral last year, the magazine and Sundown agreed to partner with the goal of normalizing healthy nightlife together. Sundown Colorado will feature a main stage for headlining talent, several bars serving alcohol-free cocktails and tonics, LED lounges, a meditation tent, wellness workshops and a VIF (very important friend) lounge sponsored by 303 Magazine. Spiritless, who provides alc-free pour over cocktails and spirits, is the platinum partner for Sundown.

The non-profit partner for the festival is Colorado Artists in Recovery (CAIR). Guests of all ages can party without pressure at this mindful music festival. “Sundown is where we meet to enjoy music the way it was meant to be experienced. When a community comes together over music and mindfulness, we make magic,” said Mike Handby (DJ Ignight), founder of Ignight Entertainment and co-owner of Secret Dance Addiction.

Mike and Amber Handby, who together form the DJ duo DoubleCrush and own Ignight Entertainment, are the driving force behind Sundown Colorado. Since first meeting in a recording studio eight years ago, the duo has co-founded three healthy nightlife businesses, including Sundown, Secret Dance Addiction, and a pop-up sober bar which is making its debut at the festival.

“Sundown is on a mission to normalize healthy nightlife for those who are sober-curious, in recovery, or who may want a different option for just tonight,” said Amber Handby, DJ and co-owner of Secret Dance Addiction. “This year features LED lounges, our new alc-free pop-up bar, headliner Curbi and even more wellness experiences. This may be the most lit sober event ever.”

Carmen Sandim

Gift of Jazz’s Women in Jazz Series featuring Carmen Sandim


Denver, CO

September 11, 2022



The series dates back to 2011, when The Gift of Jazz first highlighted the contributions of the talented Denver-area jazz musicians who happen to be women with a concert at the Governor’s Mansion. Since then, we have presented many events celebrating the contributions of this growing contingent of notable female artists here, including events that paid tribute to Nina Simone, Regina Carter and Melody Gardot to name a few.

The band we are presenting on September 11th at Dazzle is an all-female jazz trio led by pianist/composer Carmen Sandim with Juli Roster and Amy Shelly performing her original Brazilian inspired compositions.

Future Women in Jazz events will include a big band celebration of the compositions penned by Japanese-American composer Toshiko Akiyoshi, scheduled for this November at a date and venue to be announced shortly.

David Froman, Gift of Jazz

Over her 30+ year relationship with music, award-winning composer and pianist Carmen Sandim has explored a variety of music styles – from performing with a Symphony orchestra, to composing TV jingles, to scoring for independent movies and Big Band, to leading her own Jazz groups.

In June Sandim released her latest album, Mini Brazilian Beasts via Octave Records.

Westword Music Showcase

Westword Music Showcase

September 9-10, 2022

Denver, CO

RiNo Art District & Mission Ballroom

Tickets available here

In 1995 Westword Weekly started the Westword Music Showcase. As it approaches 30 years, it has gone through changes. Originally staged in LoDo it moved to the Golden Triangle and now is in two Denver hotspots: RiNo Arts District & The Mission Ballroom. It has gone from a one day experience to 2 days. It has gone from July to September. This year’s showcase features over 60 acts, on 12 stages…a third of them women.

FEMMUSIC has covered Westword Music Showcase since 2015 in previews, features and galleries. Through Westword Music Showcase we have found many acts we would have never heard of: both local and national. This year, we are looking forward to:

Wet Leg –  Wet Leg released their debut album in 2021 and have skyrocketed ever since. Rhian Teasdale & Hester Chambers’ have seen their US tour need bigger venues.

Cannons –  Cannons’ released their 3rd album Fever Dream earlier this year. Michelle Joy leads this band that has a sound between lounge and indie rock. They are always a fun show. See our photos here.

Big Richard – This an all women, all acoustic band with Bonnie Sims, Joy Adams, Emma Rose, and Eve Panning. We first heard of them in the Spring at E-Town. They have a headlining show at the Gothic in October.

Bluebook – Julie Davis’ supergroup continues to amaze us. We last saw them open for Marissa Nadler. Whether as a 4 piece or a 3 piece, Bluebook is a sunshine haze of fun. See our live photos here.

Cleaner – This is new group with old friends from Muscle Beach, Fast Eddy, Dirty Few, Keef Duster and Colfax Speed Queen.

Same Cloth –  Same Cloth is a versatile group led by JoFoKe and Soloman J Chapman. They caught our attention with their long residency at Dazzle.

Sophie Gray – Gray is a new singer-songwriter with a lot of buzz.

We’re also looking forward to seeing old friends: Ramhakdandra, Bellhoss, Claire Heywood, Julian St. Nightmare, Kayla Marque, Neoma, Plasma Canvas & Pink Fuzz

Pay attention to Brighton Stage Saturday at 12:15 for the local band who won the opportunity to be on the big stage care of HUDL Music Presents.

In April Girlpool released their 4th album Forgiveness via ANTIi-Records. Forgiveness finds Avery Tucker and Harmony Tividad embracing weirdo-pop decadence without sacrificing the poetic curiosity that has always made their music so absorbing. It’s also their slickest and most ambitious album to date. The album features singles “Lie Love Lullaby”, “Dragging My Life Into A Dream” ,“Nothing Gives Me Pleasure” and “Faultline”

Today Girlpool is announcing that they are disbanding.

Statement from the band:

“After 9 years, we have decided to take a break from Girlpool and go our separate ways as songwriters. This upcoming tour will be our last one- it will be an ode to the past, a celebration for the future, and something we will pour both of our hearts into completely. We are each other’s biggest fans and always encourage each other to stretch and evolve, whether that means it’s alongside one another or not.

We’ve had to make a tough decision to drop the following dates on our upcoming tour:

9/6 Sacramento, CA

9/13 Minneapolis, MN

9/14 Chicago, IL

9/16 Detroit, MI

9/17 Toronto, ON

9/18 Montreal, QC

9/19 Boston, MA

9/26 Carrboro, NC

9/27 Atlanta, GA

9/29 Houston, TX

9/30 Austin, TX

10/1 Dallas, TX

10/2 Lawrence, KS

10/4 Denver, CO

10/5 Salt Lake City, UT

All purchased tickets for these shows will be refunded at point of purchase. We appreciate your ongoing love and support.”

As Paste Magazine put it, “If a festival tour with a rotating lineup of some of the best indie-rock artists out there right now compiled by an excellent artist in her own right sounds like a dream to you, we’re here to inform you that you’re wide awake and it’s happening.” A full city-by-city summary can be found below.

Here and There

To celebrate the incredible coming together of these wonderful artists, Barnett has today released a very rare and limited edition run of 600 cassette tapes where all funds raised will go to the National Network of Abortion Funds and Advocates for Youth.

Earlier this week the demo for Sleater-Kinney’s Complex Female Characters was released.

Demi Lovato

GRAMMY-nominated global superstar Demi Lovato has released their highly-anticipated 8th studio album HOLY FVCK via Island Records.

Holy Fvck

“When making HOLY FVCK, I wanted to explore the dichotomy between ideas and feelings we all face: good & bad, holy & evil, and anger & love. The album is a deeply personal journey that begins with pain and anger and concludes with me reclaiming my power. It gave me the freedom to express myself in ways I didn’t know were possible and find joy I’d been missing when making music. It’s cathartic and grounded, yet exhilarating and a hell of a good time. I don’t know where I’ll be in life in a year, or in five or 10 years – but what I do know is that this record is exactly where I am now, and I am damn proud of it. I hope everyone who listens is too,” states Demi.

Today she released the title track:

The 16-track album is a sonic journey grounded in their rock and pop-punk roots and illustrates an earnest yet tongue-in-cheek retrospective of their life experiences. HOLY FVCK includes previously released songs “29,” “SUBSTANCE,” SKIN OF MY TEETH,” and features from Yungblud, Royal & The Serpent, and Dead Sara.

Fresh off their packed LA record release show at The Regent, Automatic (Izzy Glaudini, Lola Dompé, Halle Saxon) have announced their first headlining North American tour in support of their acclaimed new album Excess.

Today, they’ve shared a new video for Excess’ immediate track, “Automaton.”

Of the track, Automatic explains “Automaton is about having to deprogram yourself from capitalist ways of thinking, but, of course, we framed the song in our sci-fi theme – with an actual automaton as protagonist.” The band’s accompanied video, created by Yana Pan and Jenny Nirgends, uses paper cut animations to illustrate one automaton’s journey to break from the pack and create something new.

Emmaline at Dazzle

August 19, 2022

Denver, CO

Shows at 7pm & 9:30pm

Emmaline is a 23-year-old singer and songwriter possessing a smoky, jazz-infused, genre-fluid voice admirable as much for the range of traditional sounds she draws upon, as for her startling freshness—fresh, as in new and innovative as well as in attitude and sly humor. Her songs are bold in statement and soft in feel, her flow supple and precise. She prides herself in being one who has listened with deep intention to her heroes—Anita O’Day and Billie Holiday, Erykah Badu and D’Angelo—and has already learned to rise above questions of category with a healthy sense of musical identity and forethought.

This Ohio artist has 2 releases: All My Sweetest Dreams and Necessity. Necessity includes “Ladylike”, “You Don’t Know What Love Is”, “Necessity” and “Peppermint Kisses.” 

Emmaline is part of the new class of jazz artists. You can hear the jazz greats wrapped in her music. Her own music has the sound of being standards for years to come.
