No plans next weekend? Lame plans next weekend? No worries, we’ve got you covered. Word on the street is that all the real music aficionados in town are headed to Larimer Lounge for some epic live music from some of Denver’s finest indie bands. It’s no surprise–Larimer Lounge is always a solid place to find great bands, cheap drinks, and good company. Next Saturday, February 1st, they welcome Mosaic, Big Paleo, Koion Kitten, and Dang’O.

Mosaic is headlining, celebrating the release of their newest single, Life/Less. Their music is a mix of cinematic hard rock and pop influenced songwriting, akin to bands like Bring Me The Horizon, Dance Gavin Dance, and A Day to Remember. They exploded into the modern rock scene in 2015 with their Collision EP, followed by four impressive singles. You can check out some of their music here ( ). Mosaic sets a new bar, combining creative lyrics and complex instrumentals. I’m pretty excited to see what these guys have been working on.

Big Paleo is an indie/math rock band based in Denver. They have a lighthearted, dreamy sound that immediately entrances the listener. Their songs drift from smooth melodies to exuberant crescendos, with crashing symbols and intricate guitar solos. Big Paleo has played shows from Denver to Denton, earning fans at every stop along the way. Their latest album, Math for Liberal Arts, is available here (

Koion Kitten is a funky psychedelic synth pop jazz band based in Denver. With soaring vocals, strong rhythm, and upbeat keyboard riffs, their music comes off groovy and harmonic. They have a diverse range of influences, allowing them to dance effortlessly between genres. You may have seen them at The No Name Bar in Boulder or the Snowcats Cat Convention last month. Koion Kitten has another show coming up at Moe’s BBQ on March 21st. They also have some new music and videos coming out in March, so keep an eye out for those.
