The Velveteers with Coldharbour and Joyland

September 21 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


The Velveteers are an
American Rock trio from Denver,
Colorado that is the epiphany
of punk with the aggressive
sound and grungy wisdom that
transcends through 21 year old guitarist and lead
singer Demi Demitro and her two drummers. Through
fuzzed out guitar riffs and thunderous drums they
lure their audience with vibes that come right out
of a classic horror flick, the band is often
compared to the likes of The Stooges, T.REX, and
Led Zeppelin. In 2018 the band released their self
-titled debut EP and have since been busy on the
road touring. The Velveteers have supported bands
such as Julian Casablancas and The Voidz, Deap
Vally, Chicano Batman, and CFM to name a few. Most
recently The Velveteers completed their first UK
headlining tour after previously supporting Deap
Vally in the UK back in 2016. The Velveteers are
currently getting ready to record their first LP
in 2019.
They began as a sibling duo with Demi Demitro on
guitar at age 17, and brother John on drums.
Whilst the world has seen a succession of drumguitar duos come and go since Meg and Jack started
doing their thing, The Velveteers managed to
exploit a loophole that allows them to explore
their obvious love of 70’s prog and glam, as well
as indulging later punk influences. More recently
they have added a second drummer in the form of
Adrian Pottersmith (age 20), and in doing so have
created something completely unique, not least
through the way in which their two kits have been
partly morphed together. The two sticks men now
not only conjoin to create the rhythms but are
also forced to share cymbals. The result is an
aggressive primal sound, a thundering syncopation
that spars against Demi’s vocals and distorted
guitar for attention, and produces a listening
experience like being slammed by a ten ton truck
