Camp Euforia, Iowa’s premier independent music festival is excited to announce its 2019 lineup featuring festival hosts and founders Eufórquestra along with TAUK, Kung Fu, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, The Ghost of Paul Revere, and many more. 

2018 saw TAUK release their most adventurous, emotionally expansive work to date. An early-2018 EP, Shapeshifter I: Construct was followed by a full album Shapeshifter II: Outbreak. The new album picks up where its predecessor’s narrative thread left off, and broadens the band's sonic palette to include a vast spectrum of synth sounds and programmed effects. The band took the new songs out on the road in the fall and released nearly every show via their partnership with Nugs.net for sale and streaming through the Nugs subscription platform.

Lettuce has announced their 2019 appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre set for Saturday, June 15th. The 4th annual Rage Rocks show, the band's sixth overall time playing the legendary Colorado venue, will feature two full sets from Lettuce, one of which will be a Jerry Garcia Band cover set, along with support from TAUK and The Soul Rebels.

TAUK release “Let It Ride” a new video from their album  Shapeshifter II: Outbreak today, from Director Dugan Warmoth, a follow up to “Recreational Outrage” which debuted with the album on September 28th.

In mythology, folklore and speculative fiction, shapeshifting is the ability of a being or creature to completely transform its physical form or shape. In the world of music, the verb can be applied in a similar context, particularly to one New York powerhouse funk quartet. Enter TAUK, a mind-melting, continually moving, an ever-evolving force of nature that has taken the jam community by storm with their complex time signatures and catchy, melodic grooves.

Genre-bending instrumental quartet TAUK will release Shapeshifter II: Outbreak on September 28, an exhilarating look at artificial intelligence and its potential to upend our world.

Beanstalk Music Festival 2018 was one for the books, everyone! Where to begin… Imagine a festival with one of the best lineups the Colorado jam music scene has to offer in a beautiful location on the river, deep in the mountains. There was rafting, hiking, tubing, kayaking, paddle boarding, camping with friends, fantastic food, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, and a full moon lighting your way at night. Those are all just the extra activities available at Beanstalk every year, but this particular line up was very special.

TAUK recently released the Shapeshifter I: Construct EP and have been on tour all month in support of the release. Today the expansive instrumental quartet releases a live video of "Malware", recorded by Tim McG Photo at The Fineline in Minneapolis at the top of the run.
