The Holes They Leave occupies a middle place that immediately brings solace to the weary ear.

I was just digging everything, and didn't want the night to be over.

Expect performances that blend mediums, styles and disciplines.

One of the most ambitious projects that has come across our desk recently.

Teacup Gorilla inhabits the venues of Denver, CO with dark indie-rock soundscapes and evocative poetry — often compared to early Modest Mouse, Low, or the Velvet Underground. In the summer of 2015 they released a debut EP (The Holes They Leave) along with the multimedia novel Riding SideSaddle*. In 2016, they collaborated with Buntport Theater, adapting the novel for the stage, and underscoring it live to rave reviews. Now they’re working with Pandemic Collective to underscore two new plays at The Bakery.
Teacup Gorilla has enjoyed performing at some of Denver’s top venues — Hi Dive, Syntax Physic Opera, Larimer Lounge, Globe Hall and the Underground Music Showcase — with bands like Bad Luck City, FaceMan, Muscle Beach, Altas, and Open to the Hound. They also love collaborating across media — with theaters, video arists, writers, dancers, and even the Clyfford Still Museum.
