Denver CO-based THE YAWPERS are a garge/Americana trio on the move. The band self-released their debut album ("Capon Crusade”), an EP (“Savage Blue”) and a covers album (“Good Songs/Shitty Versions”) last year, and just released their sophomore album American Man on label Bloodshot Records. Throughout their short career, THE YAWPERS have played shows with DELTA SPIRIT, LUCERO, BLACK ANGELS and BLIND PILOT, and they have toured the US with NASHVILLE PUSSY and THE BLASTERS. American Man has received praise from Rolling Stone Country, Nerdist, Consequence of Sound, PopMatters, Westword, Denver Post Reverb, and many others.The Empty Bottle is excited as all get out to have them here this evening! THE BLACKFOOT GYPSIES have created a place that dreamers, night flyers, and adventure seekers can gather and embrace the triumphant harmony of spirit and music made by humans, for humans. With 4 years, 4 releases, and countless miles under their belt as a 2-piece band, Zack Murphy and Matthew Paige have called on fellow brethren Dylan Whitlow (bass) and Ollie Dogg (harmonica) to join forces and help expand their already wide spectrum of American music. The upcoming release of the band’s second full length LP, Handle It, serves as the debut of THE BLACKFOOT GYPSIES as a full force four-piece band. Infusing the honest roots of blues and the deep secrets of real country music, THE BLACKFOOT GYPSIES create a rock ‘n’ roll pace and angst that keep your heart alive, all while pounding to a true Nasvhille beat. A little off the sweetened path is tonight’s opener, Chicago-based ANCIENT FRIENDS. This four piece are sure to strut their psych-twisted tunes into darker territories. Still melodic and catchy as hell, these guys shouldn’t be missed, so come on time, ya dope.
