Instant Empire

This photo of Instant Empire makes it pretty difficult to think the band would be anything other than awesome. This summer they were featured in CMJ for their EP Heavy Hollow and can be found playing all over Denver (October 26th, Walnut Room - GO!). "Counting Backwards" is a hell of a song. Stream their performance and interview here. I REALLY LOVE THIS TOWN (and this band)

aaaand thanks to Oliver, Emmy, and Mia of the the band MegaGem for spending the first hour with us. Pick a household chore or drive to Denver while listening to this LP gem. Look at that artwork! The music is just as high of quality. Also, Mia is only 7 and the youngest guest ever on the Local Shakedown! Listen to us chat and hear songs from the album cause MEGAGEM IS THE COOLEST and check out a (partial) set list:
