Native Station performs at 12:30pm at Tier Two
Formed in 2016 and releasing two EPs, Bones ‘n All and Light Frame/Tall Tales, and their debut LP Morningstar Drive independently, Native Station became known around the Northern Colorado music scene as an atypical Alternative Rock band that sounds like a blend of Coheed & Cambria, Placebo, and Young the Giant – despite these labels, the band stands on its own with its variety of influences and equal variety of people that comprise it.
Native Station’s mission statement is providing positivity in the face of adversity. The five-piece band has collectively had experiences that range from racism to transphobia to temporary houselessness; despite these challenges that they face in their daily lives, music is an outlet for our commentary on America’s increasingly frenetic political and social environments under the guise of hard rock, and to raise awareness to social causes important to them as people: harm reduction, mental health awareness, and housing initiatives.
The members volunteer their personal time advocating for Denver Harm Reduction Action Center and performing at Blast N’ Scrap all-ages shows in Ft. Collins with an emphasis on donating clothes to houseless people as well as harm reduction methods such as advocating for the use of fentanyl test strips and NarCan, especially in music venues.
