Things are going to get funky at Nederland's Caribou Room this weekend.

This Saturday, June 4th, Nederland’s Caribou Room will be hosting two local acts for your entertainment. It’s the first time this new(ish) venue has solely featured local talent for a night of music, so to mark the occasion, we’re bringing you info on both of the bands involved:

Technicolor Tone Factory.

Technicolor Tone Factory.

Opening up the night at Caribou is Boulder’s own Technicolor Tone Factory! The “effervescent funk and heavy progressive rock” five-piece have built a strong local following in recent years, and will be breaking out some funky sounds for their Caribou debut. Members Bryan LeFever (drums), Greg Kalifa (keys/organ/vocals), Cameron Canepa (guitar/vocals), Karl Summers (bass/vocals), and Evan Morris (keys/synth) are fresh off of some time in the booth at KMG, where they are recording their first studio album. TTF are pumped to play some of what they’ve been working on in the studio live, so head over and check out their new music! They’ve promised a high-energy set with lots of groovability.

Malai Llama.

Following TTF, Rollinsville’s Malai Llama will take the stage, a dance/fusion four-piece who like to combine “jazz, rock, and electronica in a psychedelic fusion”. The self-acclaimed jam band is comprised of Steven Govanlu, Chris Cornwall, John DeSousa, and Matt Flaherty. Together, the four like to “push musical boundaries by combining the energy of instrumentation with electronic exploration”, aka, they’ve got sweet synths and boomin’ turntables injected into their sound, along with their traditional instruments of guitar, bass, and drums. It’s rumored that it’s impossible to sit still at a Malai Llama show, so come ready to party!
