The Crooked Rugs

Saturday 10:00PM @ The Coast

Psychedelic Western Rock

Psych-rock band, The Crooked Rugs, formed in Fort Collins, Colorado. Consisting of Jayce Haley, Nolan Brumbach, Jay LeCavalier, and brothers, Rex and Finn Stowers, the band solidified in 2019 after years of univeristy bands came to an end. After cutting their teeth in the Fort Collins music scene, the band took the music into their own hands and released their first self-recorded EP, Eyes/Takes a Minute in July 2020. The following year the band released an additional two self-recorded full-length albums in 2021, IT! (January 2021) and THAT! (September 2021). IT! demonstrates what The Crooked Rugs can do in a more freeform package with a wide array of expertly crafted songs that evoke a plethora of psych-rock influences. THAT! comes across as the opposite, as it displays how the band can harness a singular sonic idea and ride with it. The band has no intention of slowing down in the coming years and are quickly finding their place in the Northern Colorado Music Scene.
