DJ Yololo LIVE at 12:00pm
Lauren Finesilver has been DJing under the moniker of Yololo for the better part of 5 years. A fan of all genres, her sets are a journey through decades that highlight and celebrate cultures from all over the world. She has founded a successful dance party in Denver, CO and had multiple residencies at bars and restaurants around the city. Expect an upbeat soundtrack of positive energy spanning genres like house, disco, indie, and more.
Nasty Nachos LIVE at 1:00pm
If you’ve ever found yourself on a dancefloor wishing the DJ would do you dirtier than a meal at Casa Bonita, look no further than Nasty Nachos. No offense to Casa Bonita — it’s a well-known fact the nastiness is a part of the experience as it is with Alex Anderson’s filthy dance floor-filling moniker. Anderson, a former member of Rose Quartz, is the brains behind Nasty Nachos, cooking up tasteful electronic music using an array of modular synthesizers. While his recorded material fills the indie dance vein, live performances are where Nasty Nachos shines. More akin to the likes of the Chemical Brothers and Jean-Michel Jarre, Nasty Nachos is one of Denver’s most exciting electronic projects.

CANDID! 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Our story started in the fall of 2016 when Carson, (guitar and vocals) and Caleb (drums) collaborated on the song Worthy. Shortly after, they recruited bassist and Groove Master Andrew, and keyboardist Royce to join them, and c a n d i d! was born! We immediately started writing more originals as well as performing at weddings, events, and other gigs around OC. Since then, we have played over 50 gigs, recorded and released an EP entitled Bananas For Breakfast, a cover of Justin Bieber’s Boyfriend, and a 10 track, self titled LP, available on all major music streaming platforms NOW! Music has given us so much joy, and our mission as a band is to spread that joy to you! Candid Instagram

After over a decade together, HALF PAST TWO has honed their blend of ska, rock, reggae, and pop punk into their most ambitious release yet, “Camp Slushtone”. Once again teaming with production duo David Irish (Reel Big Fish, Suburban Legends) and Meagan Christy (Chase Long Beach), “Camp Slushtone” showcases seven diverse tracks that speak to where the band has been and where they hope to go in the future. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign reaching over 400% of the project’s goal, the milestones of “Camp Slushtone” have continued into the band’s first ever vinyl record release.
