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.
