Bud Bronson & The Good Timers released their sophomore album, "Between the Outfield and Outer Space," last month. The Denver quartet says it's a move away from the "blissful ignorance" of their rowdy debut album and toward more serious subject matter. But the band's vibrant rock 'n' roll energy remains intact. Bud Bronson & The Good Timers recently played in the CPR Performance Studio for the first time since 2015. The band members played three songs from the new LP and spoke with Alisha Sweeney about their recent U.S. tour, the dangers of nostalgia and how the 2016 presidential election affected their musical outlook.

Slothrust played a set of jazz-influenced rock in our studio last year. Since then, the New York trio released its fourth album, "The Pact." The record features a heavier sound for the band as well as electronic instruments like drum machine and synthesizer. Slothrust returned to the CPR Performance Studio before a show at Denver's Lost Lake. The band members played three songs from "The Pact" and spoke with Bruce Trujillo about the Slothrust video game and reworking songs from artists like Britney Spears and Black Sabbath on a recent EP of covers.

Julie Davis started making solo music as Bluebook in 2005. Since then the Denver bassist and singer has led bands like Bela Karoli and Fairchildren, and collaborated with fellow Colorado artists Nathaniel Rateliff, Gregory Alan Isakov and Porlolo.

Before its release, Davis and Parsons played three songs in the CPR Performance Studio and brought some unique decorations for the space. They also spoke with Alisha Sweeney about their deep musical connection and the inspiration behind their costumes and stage installations.
One Flew West has spent the past four years forging a sound that melds pop, punk and folk. After releasing the EP "Trial And Error" in January, the Denver quartet went on to perform at Colorado music festivals like FoCoMX, the Underground Music Showcase and the Denver stop of the 2018 Warped Tour. One Flew West recently stopped into the CPR Performance Studio to play four songs. The band members also spoke with Alisha Sweeney about busking as teenagers, their recent concerts -- where they covered the music of Tenacious D -- and performing at elementary schools.
