 And away we go.

Our first Great Eight match features one of Colorado’s most enduringly popular bands vs one of its most aggressively unconventional. Should be fun.


  • Jay Munly (solo, Munly & The Lupercalians, Munly & The Lee Lewis Harlots, Denver Broncos UK, etc., in addition to his co-starring role in Slim Cessna’s Auto Club) is the most intriguing and wildly talented artist of the Denver Sound’s second wave. His work, across all his incarnations, is as compelling and brilliant as it is dark and occasionally disturbing.

Big Head Todd & the Monsters

  • Blues Rockers BHTM made a name for themselves nationally with 1993’s Sister Sweetly, which produced three big hits on the US Rock charts. Still, they were never a radio band and have since built their legacy on attention to craft and a commitment to building an enduring relationship with their audience.
