Denver’s premiere female fronted metal/hard rock band! The Blackouts originated in 2008, through mutual friends in the basement of Kate Innes’s (guitarist/founder) of the band. It was as if the universe brought the perfect combination of women together and their lives were instantly transformed. After 6 months, they began to play relentlessly all over Colorado’s underground scene and beyond. Now a decade later, they are Rockin as hard as ever! The Blackouts have shared the stage with numerous national acts, including, Lita Ford, DIO, Vixen, Tom Keifer of Cinderella, Faster Pussycat, OTEP and more... (Ali Frankfurt-vocals/bass, Kate Innes-guitar, Angela Mundt-guitar, AJ Beckman-drums)
"Many yawn-worthy bands have been inspired over the years by hard rock and metal from the '70s and '80s. But rest assured, there's nothing boring about The Blackouts.
Ali Frankfurt has a raw vocal delivery that contains a surprising musicality; Angela Mundt and Kate Innes play guitar like they're on a huge stage alongside Angus Young. Hope Hinkson, meanwhile, hits the drums with a power, precision and creativity that recall Janet Weiss and Dan Peters.. The Blackouts do the impossible and make bluesy, punk-infused hard rock exciting again."-Tom Murphy -Westword
