The indie rock and alternative music scene is burgeoning in Colorado. Mike Flanagan of CPR's Open Air recommends two summer festivals in the genre. Flanagan is Open Air's program director.
- Westword Music Showcase, June 21 in Denver.
- The Underground Music Showcase, July 24-27 in Denver. CPR's Open Air is a sponsor of this event.
One of the bands Flanagan recommends seeing at the Underground Music Showcase, Residual Kid, recently played in CPR's performance studio.
