Oliver Francis, self-made vocalist, producer, and song-writer, turned Cervantes’ Other Side into a party last Thursday. With opening acts to bring the room alive, artists Smrtdeath and Marco XO joined Oliver on “The Adventures of Oliver Francis” tour.

Before taking the name Oliver Francis, Alex Kelly (Born June 12, 1992) was a part of three bands: Victory, Glory Days, and Treebend. His musical journey took a different path in 2016 when he was began to gain a large underground following on SoundCloud and YouTube, as well as over 1 million streams.

Oliver Francis has released multiple mixtapes, all displaying his variety of lyricism and production skills; with his first SoundCloud mixtape, Burnout, featuring his most popular song, “Wwaavvyy” with 4.7 million views. Since then, he released another mixtape, Bape Music, an album Chlorine, and multiple EPs since then, all produced and engineered by Oliver.

Opening Acts

Each artist had their own vibe that we could all get down to. Right before Oliver, Smrtdeath reminded us what it’s like to be in love and feel the worst things after Marco XO got the room jumping almost as high as him.

Marco XO

Marco XO had energy from the second his foot hit the stage; if people weren’t paying attention they certainly were now. Running from one side of the stage to the other to deliver rhymes that were almost as quick as his feet, I don’t think Marco ever stopped moving.

Smrtdeath

Following Marco XO’s 30 minutes, Smrtdeath had all the girls leaning onto the stage with his red hair and outfit almost as clean as his performance. His soft voice and fun beats kept the crowd alive until Oliver Francis came out to finish out the night.

Local Appearances

As well as openers on the tour, the night featured local acts, slouch and superare, which both brought a unique sound and display of talent.

Superare played the guitar while delivering soothing lyrics to open up the night before slouch. Slouch’s energy was wild and unique to get the crowd going.

The entire night was a great time and I can’t wait until any of these acts make their way through Denver again.
