GAUNTLET HAIR YUKON BLONDE DANA BUOY (OF AKRON FAMILY) YOUTH
ROTTURE 315 SE 3RD AVE 21+ // 9PM // $10 ADVANCE
Gauntlet Hair is a relatively unknown pair of dudes who are named Andy and Craig, from the small-ish (23,000 population) Colorado town of Lafayette. The pair garnered a fair amount of attention after being part of the Rhinoceropolis-curated block of Denver-based bands that played at the post-SXSW Mexican extravaganza MtyMx. The band's track "I Was Thinking" is a pretty insatiable guitar stomp that throws some R&B and soul into the lo-fi revival pot, mixing heavily-reverbed guitars with a simple, but undeniably booty-shaking beat. Add in some Animal Collective-style vocal melodies and you've got something pretty fantastic.
