“Tastefully fuzzy melodies … poignant and touchingly poetic lyrics. Big Dopes is one of the best Denver bands not enough people know about yet.” Tom Murphy, QUEEN CITY SOUNDS AND ART

Big Dopes recalls the loose, lighthearted feel of 90s alternative and indie pop, with influences somewhere between Paul Simon, Jonathan Richman, and Pavement. Lead songwriter Eddie Schmid uses a playful, conversational baritone to sing through neuroses and inner dialogues, touching on long-distance relationships, being a houseguest, and gratitude for friends named Tom.
In August 2021 the band made waves for its energetic live show at Denver’s Underground Music Showcase festival. That November the Dopes released their sophomore album, Destination Wedding, produced by Mark Anderson (Paper Bird, The Still Tide). The group completed its first tour behind the new LP, culminating in a slot opening for Tokyo Police Club at Denver’s famed Bluebird Theater and later for Colorado favorites Kiltro and Wildermiss at the Gothic Theatre.

NATL PARK SRVC
natlparksrvc.bandcamp.com

“‘The Dance’, NATL PARK SRVC’s debut album, is more than just an escape — it’s a culmination. Every teenage emotion that felt too big to be real comes swirling together across ten tracks of dynamic indie rock. The Minneapolis, MN group epitomizes these experiences in a way that is familiar yet intimate. It took them a long time to get here. Over the course of 2019, the original lineup — dual guitarist/vocalists Dylan Woytcke (they/he) and Jared Leger (he/him), and bassist Nathan Zillmer (he/they) — released three EPs and fleshed out the band. A fourth EP, released in 2020, added members with violinist Sam Tudor (he/him), saxophonist Wes Muilenburg (they/them), trombonist Joe Keyport (they/he), and drummer Sage Livergood (he/they). Lead single “The Sharks” kicks off NATL PARK SRVC’s new era with aplomb. It reels you in with fluorescent power pop melodies. But behind that pop sheen lies the consternation of youth. The band takes you through a tale of love, escape, and celebration just as much as it unabashedly shows the pain of depression and loss. Evoking a bygone time of heart-on-sleeve indie, NATL PARK SRVC is making their presence known and urging you to take up the dance.”
