Failure

When: Tue., Aug. 25 2015

Band names can be prophetic, and not always in a good way. Consider L.A.'s relatively artsy alt-rock band Failure, who were pegged as the next Nirvana back in the '90s. That didn't materialize, despite the fact that In Utero producer Steve Albini manned the console for their third album, Fantastic Planet. In a five-star review, Alternative Press declared that it would "breathe life into the corpse of contemporary, guitar-driven rock." Instead, it was the band's swan song until nearly two decades later, when Failure unexpectedly reunited for a comeback EP, played a few well-received gigs (including last year's Riot Fest) and kept going. Currently touring behind their full-length The Heart Is a Monster, Failure will perform an all-ages show tonight at Summit Music Hall (1902 Blake St., Denver, thesummitmusichall.com). Tickets are $25/advance, $28/door, and door time is 7:30. — Bill Forman
