Bethlehem Steel with Special Guests

to Nov 2

Bethlehem Steel with Special Guests

The fearsome New York band Bethlehem Steel are coming to Lion's Lair in support of their new self-titled album along with some special guests. Prepare to get completely wrecked by their blend of grunge/indie/nightmare pop on November 1st.

Bethlehem Steel formed in 2012 out of a long-time friendship that singer/guitarist Rebecca Ryskalczyk, drummer Jonathan Gernhart and bassist Patrick Ronayne forged through nights spent at the Brooklyn DIY venue Shea Stadium.

Taking stock of your experiences and your emotional health in solitude can be an empowering task, but enlisting the assistance of allies certainly never hurts, and Bethlehem Steel’s sophomore album is a testament to the value of togetherness in difficult times. Rebecca Ryskalczyk and Christina Puerto’s collaborative energy provide the animating force behind their self-titled sophomore album -a release that serves as guide, of sorts, for those reaching towards self-empowerment, and an illustration of the transformative power offemale friendship as a force in overcoming trauma.

Bethlehem Steel is the follow-up to Party Naked Forever -a 2017 release praised by outlets like NPR, The FADER and Stereogum, is an exhilarating listen, and with the transition from a trio to a four-piece, it’s the sound of the band finding another gear as they change shape and mature as songwriters and musicians.

Out September 13 on Exploding In Sound Records.

Debut of Heated Bones w/ Sawmill Joe & King Cardinal

to Aug 10

Debut of Heated Bones w/ Sawmill Joe & King Cardinal

Heated Bones has arrived from a long journey of a conceptual road in writing. Josh Moorehead & Zach Holcomb were feeling creative and wanted to be able to express that outside of their main group The Guestlist. Immediately recruiting Zac Wright of Larry Nix, the group started writing a lot of lyrics but they all had a similar constant, they had a muse. Who or what is this Muse? The name is Roy. He's a rather striking individual who through time and space has proven to be a truly legendary Sage. Once the concepts were there, the group brought on Kris Jackson (I Am Love, Restless Ones) who began to truly kindle the fire of the writing. After orchestrating countless songs with more words then the group knew what to do with, they are ready to go out and share the stories.

Illusionaut / Scifidelic / Married a Dead Man
Aug

to Aug 4

Illusionaut / Scifidelic / Married a Dead Man

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, the space rock band, Illusionaut will be hitting the stage in Denver with Scifidelic, the alternative post-industrial dance kick-ass band.

$8 admission, 21+, Tickets at the door, Doors 9:00pm

Illusionaut has been hitting the ground running in the music realm relentlessly since 2014. and has been described as post-punk space rock with progressive tendencies. They have developed into a prominent group of songwriters and performers with their own multifaceted signature sound, featuring a vast array of influences ranging from Pink Floyd, The Cure, Failure, Jane's Addiction, Björk, Sade, and Mogwai. With many years under their belts performing, writing, and recording, Illusionaut's newest album "Snow Queen", produced/engineered by Darian Stribling and mastered by Ken Andrews of influential group, Failure, was released on 4/20 of 2018.

Scifidelic If you were to combine intricate, otherworldly sounds with music and lyrics that reverberate through your soul and wrap that up in massive dance-driven beats in a hybrid of instrumentation and electronica, you would experience the music of Scifidelic. Although it's difficult to pin Scifidelic down in one particular genre, this futuristic, post-industrial, alternative rock band was originally started by music producer, writer and vocalist Caustic in Baltimore, with his first album released in 2005. Colorado is now home to this strange and wonderfully entertaining band that produces unforgettable and stirring music. For the full experience - and it's definitely an experience - you must see them live! Caustic is joined by the rest of the band of extremely talented musicians: Christopher Malone on electric bass and keys; Elizabeth Nelles on drums; Nero Romulus on guitar.

Married a Dead Man formed in July 2016 when Jaime (drums) decided to form her own female based goth-influenced project. Veteran bassist Travis was added a few weeks later. Black clad kindred spirits, Megan (vocals and keyboards) and Jaime met volunteering for Girls Rock Denver, a non-profit organization that empowers young girls through music. Guitarist Dillon joined our project in December 2018, replacing our former guitarist.
Brought together by disparate influences, the band creates an eclectic mix of goth, shoe-gaze and dark-wave, culminating a unique Denver-based sound. They collectively have 30+ years experience performing, recording and touring.
