Sun Jr. @ Roots Music Project

June 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm MDT

Bask in the brilliant warmth of Boulder’s Sun Jr. – a supernova sound channeling rock’s legendary family tree into a new frontier.

Sun Jr.

Sun Jr. is the immaculate conception of a psychedelic-fueled desert trip that no one will claim and resembles all who were there, including The Doors, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, and The Grateful Dead. Sun Jr. was raised in the shadows of their contemporaries, other bastard sons, and kindred cousins including My Morning Jacket, Alabama Shakes, Lord Huron, Father John Misty, Sturgill Simpson, and Wilco. Influenced by the sounds of a diverse family tree, the real magic is in their ability to seamlessly implement new sounds from within their heritage.

Never allowing the song structure to harness the impulse of the moment, Sun Jr. creates a wall of sound through their unique tapestry of folk, Americana, alt-country, and electric-blues rock, phasered, and melded through swirling psychedelic effects and effortlessly slipping in and out of ethereal space ballads, dark surf swings, and swampy foot-stomping jams, or in other words, Psych Mountain.

Formed in 2013, and hailing from Boulder, Colorado, Sun Jr. is comprised of banjo, pedal steel, guitar, drums, and organ/bass/keys. Having played in marquee venues including Mackey Auditorium, The Boulder Theater, and E-Town, plus The Skylark Lounge, Roots Music Project and The Velvet Elk, with new shows slated in 2024 for The Lariat, Cervantes’ Next Door, Baby B’s and The Caveman Music Festival.
