With a resume of shows featuring high profile Colorado venues and a reputation of relentless touring, Boulder-based rock trio Augustus brings its late summer tour to Fruita.

The show will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, at the Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen Ave. Tickets cost $10.

“Harvested from the most significant American musical movements and rooted in truly good songwriting, the distinct Boulder based rock trio Augustus is on the rise,” begins the band bio at

“Formed in late 2013, Augustus released their debut EP, ‘The Common Collapse,’ to critical and commercial success and has been building a steady following in Colorado due to their extensive gigging and captivating live shows.”

Two years after the EP release, the band took second place at the Road to Blues and Brews “Best of Boulder” band competition during a debut performance at Boulder’s Fox Theatre.

In 2015, the band’s second EP, “Into Frames” debuted on college radio stations across the United States and Canada, and was dubbed “Colorado’s strongest psych-rock/mashup album of 2015,” by Colorado Music Buzz, the bio said.
