The UMS is Denver’s premier indie festival, now in its 14th year. Yesterday, The Denver Post said, “The Undergound Music Showcase has become the juggernaut of indie music in the West.” While national acts like Blonde Redhead and Real Estate are  welcome, The UMS is a non-profit endeavor known  for its focus on local bands and for  benefiting the local community.  This year’s UMS will showcase 400 performances at more than 20 venues along South Broadway over four days.

The music continues Saturday and Sunday from noon through 2 a.m.. Single-day passes  still available for $35 per day. Go to TheUMS.Com, or buy a pass at the box office on the corner of Broadway and Archer Streets.
