Like the band name, Soap’s music is undoubtedly fresh. With influences
ranging from jazz, blues and funk to progressive, psychedelic and
electronic, Soap skillfully fuses all of these genres into one – dance
infused rock. Imagine going to a double matinee showing of Led Zeppelin &
P-Funk at Dream Theatre and then heading to an Amsterdam discotheque to
dance until the sun came up. That’s about as close as can be described
without seeing Soap for yourself.
Originally from just south of Chicago, Illinois, Soap uprooted and moved to
The band recently released their third full-length studio album, Piece by
Soap has become a favorite on the festival circuit, performing at 10,000

Friday June 15th we have: Pretty Lights Music Artists Paul Basic and SuperVision!!
Over the last several years, Colorado producer Paul Basic (Paul Brandt) has developed his own brand of beats fusing dusty samples with hard hitting drums and razor-sharp basslines. His roots are in drumming, having played in a band with label-mates Michal Menert and Derek Vincent Smith through highschool before moving on to produce his own tracks. He draws from a slew of inspirations in order to create his own style within the PLM electro hip-hop movement. A Colorado native, Paul lived on both coasts while pursuing a degree in audio production, before he came back to CO to team up with his crew and begin his quest for domination of the global dance floor.
The sounds created and played by SuperVision are the works of Richard Blake Hansen. With a DJ career spanning over 12 years and 1000+ gigs, his place in the music industry has been found. Within a couple of years of DJing he was cutting his teeth in music production. He moved to Fort Collins Colorado in 2002 and met Derek Vincent Smith and Michal Menert. After studying production and learning from the best, he went on to audio engineering school. He has enjoyed sharing the stage with such well known acts as Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, DJ AM, Jazzy Jeff, Public Enemy, DJ Craze, Klever, DJ Skribble, Steve Aoki, Tommie Sunshine, Quest Love, Classixx, La Riots, Villains, RJD2, and Ghostland Observatory to name a few. In 2011 SuperVision has arrived. Available now for free download is his latest project ‘Telescopic’.
When drawing from the right pool of inspiration, sometimes the right mixture of sounds can come together and make something new. Possibly something hard to put one name on. Today people like to jump on the next genre bandwagon, and intentionally make music that fits one genre. SuperVision is not about one sound. Instead it is about many sounds brought together with an approach that delivers a stylistic sound design that isn’t classified with one or two words. It is a sound that you can count on evolving without departing from what makes it unique.
Today, Adrian and the Sickness continue their rock-n-roll pursuit, touring the US and Europe, and constantly writing and recording new music. In July 2011 they launched their fifth independent release “Criminal/Dog Days” and their first on 7-inch vinyl. Adrian and the Sickness is an action-packed world-class rock experience and it’s coming straight at you.
The Victoria Tavern is pleased to welcome to the stage this Saturday Night, Interstate Stash Express.
Interstate Stash Express takes the power trio places you’d never imagine. The space-age fire of the Jimmy Hendrix Experience ignites the roots rock sound of bands like Uncle Tupelo. Audacious drumming from McKee, propulsive bass lines from Smith, and the searing guitar licks of Kishiyama create deep grooves and incendiary improvisations.
The buzz around the trio has been building in the Rocky Mountain region for five years, as their raucous performances have earned a loyal following. In 2007 they released their self-titled album, followed soon after by the EP Stick 2008. Now they’ve joined forces with famed sound engineer Geoff Gray for their second LP, scheduled to release later this year.
Like the buzz, their sound is expanding by the day. You could call Interstate Stash Express psychedelic Americana. Or you could just say they rock. Show @ 9:30 pm. 21 and over.
