Parker Library’s Live Local Music Series presents The Outfit -- outdoors on our south lawn -- at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 28.

The Outfit was nominated for best Lo-Fi/Garage Rock band in the Westword Music Showcase. Their song "What Happened to You" has been played on KTCL 93.3's esteemed Locals Only show.
The Outfit consists of five Coloradans with a raw and energetic sound. They play the songs they love, hoping to impart the wild joy they take in their music.
"[B]ecause The Outfit seems to be taking Rock itself to new levels here with the guys’ conspicuous energy and overt passion, I’m convinced they will get some attention. They seem destined for greatness if the masses have any taste left, and, as we have seen, they do at times. The guitar work is amazing -- so is the drummer. The instrumentation throughout is raw but complex and even smooth in all its roughness. As a great guy from Vices I Admire once said, a band can’t go anywhere without a talented singer. A great singer Johnston is, so they’ve got that going on, too. You’ll enjoy this CD if you love Rock with a little post-Punk flavoring. As mother always said: Good things do come in small packages. This EP is ultra-effective that way. It leaves you wanting more." -- Colorado Music Buzz
