Saturday, August 27, 2022 – People In General, Tiny Humans, Interpretive Tyranny

People In General – Fort Collins indie poppers are aptly named for the theme of their upcoming single “icicic.” Seeking universality in songwriting is usually a great idea. If lightning strikes and the writer finds a deeply human moment experienced by not just one demographic, but, well, people in general, that sentiment can make for a great tune.

Tiny Humans – High energy 3 piece band out of Denver with a mix of emo, garage rock, punk and grunge.  Tiny Humans consists of Chris Mercer on guitar and vocals, Dave Wolfkowski on bass and Zack Noe on drums.  Formed in 2020 over the pandemic, after Chris broke up their previous band Sliver.  Dave also plays in a band called Swindlin Hearts and Zack use to play in a band called Alter Girls.

Interpretive Tyranny – Denver Alt Rock band Interpretive Tyranny, Connor on Guitar, Hayden on Drums, Alex on Bass, and Marcus at Lead Vocal.

Tier Two Live is a Lafayette based music promotion group focused on independent, low cost, all ages music shows.  We are working to build a safe, genuine and diverse music community that is always growing and happy to welcome new people.  We always need folks who want to contribute to the scene or just be part of something fun. Help with one show or as many as you’d like!  Interested? Contact Dave at TierTwoLive@gmail.com or 303.710.5201 or fill out the form below.

Starting a scene

Tier Two Live was started in 2019 by Dave Heinrich as a bit of an experiment to see if a viable independent youth-focused music scene could be created in an area away from the main cultural centers of Colorado.  Dave has been involved in the independent music scene since he was 14 years old. He grew up going to DIY punk and hardcore shows in the Reno, Nevada area and was a founding member of the hardcore band Shogun in his college years. His vision for the Tier Two Live music promotion business is the start a local independent music scene in East Boulder County, hopefully giving the local teenagers (and adults too) an outlet for their musical pursuits.

All Tier Two Live events are all-ages with no drugs or alcohol allowed.  Shows are generally donation based with some grant funded events having free entry for those under 21.  Diverse musical acts with original music are welcome. Passion and creativity are encouraged.

The name Tier Two is about being located in a area that isn’t necessarily on the map for the majority of musical acts. It’s about being proud of where you are and what you can bring to the table. It’s about discovering what hidden talent lies beneath the surface of the typical music we are exposed to. We are also headquartered in Lafayette, Colorado, which is considered a Tier Two suburb.

All Tier Two Live shows are open to everyone.  Our Safe Places Policy is as follows:

  • We are an alcohol and drug free space. Please enjoy these items elsewhere.
  • Respect people’s physical and emotional boundaries.
  • Respect, embrace, and defend other people’s opinions, beliefs, differing states of being, and differing points of view that do not uphold oppressive ideologies.
  • Oppressive, abusive, or reactionary language and behavior of any kind will be interrupted and challenged.
  • Respect the places where the shows are held.  Vandalism or other destruction to the venues risks losing the what we have worked so hard to build.
  • Be responsible for your own actions. Be aware that your actions have effects on others.
  • Examine your own subtle and not-so-subtle prejudices.
  • Look out for kids at all times and try not to leave anything around that would endanger them.
  • Any individual or group engaging in violence (including sexual violence and harassment) or who threatens another’s safety within the space will automatically be excluding themselves. We will ask them to leave the space.
  • If you experience or witness any behavior that crosses your boundaries or makes you feel uncomfortable, or if you are feeling like you would like to talk to someone anonymously about anything, please ask someone who works here.  Take responsibility for your own safety and get help if you need it.
