The 2018 Underground Music Showcase is just days away. CPR's OpenAir staff will be in the South Broadway neighborhood this weekend capturing the sights and sounds of the Denver music festival.

We kick things off on Thursday with our Porch Sessions. Four standout Colorado bands will perform on a porch in the Baker neighborhood. You can watch and submit questions in real time via Facebook Live.

There's plenty happening when the festival starts on Friday. Tune in for our live broadcast from the Main Stage, kicking off at 5:20 p.m. We'll air performances from three of the festival's national headliners. We'll also have an artist Instagram takeover with Overcoats all evening.

Saturday, join us at 3 Kings Tavern for a full evening of music from Colorado and beyond. And on Sunday, watch a live taping of our new Playlist League podcast at the Comedy Stage, featuring guest appearances from comedian Kate Willett and Craig Minowa of Cloud Cult.

Below, check out our daily schedule for UMS 2018. And be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for all of our social media coverage throughout the weekend.
