Warming up for Ultraviolet Hippopotamus, is local band Hot Soup and they are set to treat the audience to their jamband/rock infused tunes. The Boulder band with members Matt Flaherty (Guitar and Vocals), Mirco Altenbach (Saxophone and Vocals), Adrian Engfer (Bass and Vocals) and Paul Kemp (Drums) is sure to get the crowd worked into a dancing frenzy. Rocky Mountain Jams is excited to check out both bands… maybe they will jam together… what would that be like Hot Ultraviolet hippo soup? We shall see… Doors open at 8:30 tonight at the Fox… see you there.
