Five Colorado bands and their national doppelgangers: Inner Oceans, Hot Apostles and more
The Underground Music Showcase is like Colorado's South By Southwest, with a few notable exceptions. First, there's a hell of a lot less sponsors. (And they're relevant: While fans at SXSW might scratch their heads over why Katy Perry is blasting the crowd with a Cool Ranch Doritos cannon, Illegal Pete's actually has its own label, Greater Than Collective, and serves as an official festival venue.) Second, it's a lot less hassle getting into shows.
