The Underground Music Showcase returned to Denver's Baker neighborhood over the weekend. It was the music festival's first instance under the new ownership of Two Parts.
The 2018 event brought some significant changes for UMS. In addition to the Main Stage, there were two more outdoor stages hosting music performances. There was also a tent for comedy shows, new indoor venues and a series of surprise sets from artists like Neyla Pekarek of The Lumineers.
Below, check out our hosts' photos and videos from the three-day event. Also, watch performances from Colorado artists Porlolo and Neyla Pekarek that we filmed at 3 Kings Tavern and featured live on our Facebook page.

Snaps from Day 1 of UMS! Overcoats the perfect band to kick off the main stage and Digable Planets closing it down was everything! All the bands in between & along South Broadway brought their A-game & I loved every moment I was able to soak up—most of all that we were able to live broadcast from the main stage to our radio listeners! Onto Day2! We are gonna be FB live from 3 Kings today, you must check it out if there are moments you aren’t at the fest but need a fix! Check out deets on @openaircpr social feeds! @theums @openaircpr @thisisovercoats @frankiecombos @saibot34 @surlybruce #ums #ums2018
