Please, quickly become acquainted with The Knew. Denver is familiar and flocks to their high-enery, raucous live shows. AMC's Breaking Bad and Xbox 360 know their studio recordings are just as desirable.
The 2010 release, Pulperia received praise, but vocalist and guitarist Jacob Hansen says the new LP Man Monster (due out August 24th) will significantly blow the other away.
Go rock and buy vinyl August 24 and 25th at Lions Lair. (check out the sweet deals here).
Listen to The Knew's Shakedown PERFORMANCE and keep streaming to hear Jacob and Tyler DJ the rest of the show!

Jesse Manley performed an extra stripped down set during his appearance at the Local Shakedown. Singing and playing just over the air room mics, he delivered beautiful tunes that make you slow down and stop to appreciate the simpler things. Frequently playing solo or with band mates, Manley's music is honest, captivating, and inspiring to those that wish to write solid songs from the heart.
