Earlier this year, two days before Ashtree released its album “Rescue the Light,” the Denver-based indie pop-rock band was featured as the Artist of the Week by Indie Vision, an online music publication.

Along with guests Starship Romance, Augmented, The Locals and Calibrate ME, Ashtree will perform Saturday, April 28, at Mesa Theater and Club, 538 Main St.

The March 4 Indie Vision feature, authored by Brandon Jones, previewed the album that was produced in Atlanta by highly acclaimed producer Matt Malpass at Monsters and Marigolds Productions.

“Led by the sound of singer Will Johnston’s booming piano keys and willowy voice, melded with Anton Valentich and Pat Tafoya’s swirling guitars, and driven home with TJ Keller’s basslines and Joseph Tafoya’s ever-unfaltering drums, Ashtree refreshes a beloved genre in a welcome and needed way. The humblest of beginnings has made them the staple ‘hometown opening band’ for national acts like Lydia, Mae, Fun, and so many more, but the band longs for fast-moving blacktop and their debut full-length album is just the vehicle,” Jones wrote.

According to Jones, the five-member band is named after Johnston’s grandmother’s tree-lined cobblestone street in London.

Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the cover charge for the all ages show is $10. Ages 21 and older pay just $5.
