This Thursday, Sept. 12, indie band Corda Vera, along with the Jive Tribe and Banshee Tree, will perform live at the Fox Theater. While Corda Vera is relatively new to the Boulder music scene, the group has already generated significant publicity.
Corda Vera took flight at small house shows and cramped basements around Boulder’s University Hill area. Their sound reflects the tropes of garage-rock DIY. The group originally formed after lead vocalist Simone Forhman, drummer Josh Bennet and guitarist Daniel Better met while taking classes at the University of Colorado Bouler and performing at open mic nights at Innisfree Poetry Cafe. Guitarist Thomas Cole and bassist Sam Sawyer joined later on.
The band strives for shows to be a gathering for people from different social circles and friend groups, all united by common interest and love for underground music. The group has never performed a cover and does all original, collaborative songs.
Thursday’s show will also mark the beginning of the Jive Tribe’s tour for their second album, “Thankful.” Jive Tribe keeps it fresh with new music that cannot be bound by one specific genre. Digital algorithms tend to categorize the group under the “Pop-Rock” alias although their live sound proves otherwise.
Banshee Tree will follow suit with a similar style of genre-bending austere. The ability to attain more than just one type of sound or set of instruments has opened up a whole realm of possibilities for the band and a calendar full of shows. Banshee Tree will likely be showing off their most recent release, “In the Company of Crows.”
