The members of Bear Antler don't take themselves too seriously. After the five rockers started making music together, they named themselves after a modified jackalope—a mythical North American rabbit with horns—as a way of poking fun at the indie rock cliche of including animals in band names. They approach their fusion of rock and Americana with the same carefree sensibility, but with healthy doses of organs, bluesy vocals and rollicking guitar.
A favorite at Denver's Underground Music Showcase, Bear Antler acknowledges that the music they make isn't always pretty. But when the groove is right, the pocket is tight and the lights are bright, you can bet no one is having a better time than these five guys on stage.
