The 12th annual Denver Post Underground Music Showcase is less than two months away, and we have the exclusive first look at the freshly updated lineup.

Leading the new crop: the buzzy garage rock of Cloud Nothings, singer-songwriter Ezra Furman, indie-rockers Finn Riggins and Denver favorites Signal Path, Dressy Bessy and Gauntlet Hair.

Said Event Director Kendall Smith: “We are proud of the lineup we have assembled. The UMS remains the preeminent event celebrating the strength of our local music scene. We also have included many compelling acts from outside the Rocky Mountain region. And we still have a few surprises up our sleeve …”

Four-day passes for the July 19-22 festival are $30 now through May 31. (They will be $40 as of June 1). You can view the current lineup in its entirety below and purchase tickets at TheUMS.com.

    Based on this new announcement I’ve created an updated playlist of UMS bands on Spotify.  If the band is on Spotify, they are on the playlist. 

    Check it out here: http://spoti.fi/JQNx8p

    Let me know if I missed anybody.
