The Anchor Album Celebration

October 19th, 2019

To the surprise of absolutely nobody, the Marquis has announced yet another stellar show. Next Saturday, the 26th, The Anchor is celebrating the release of their new album. They’ll be tearing up the stage with Blue Mesa, What Came Before, Heartsick Heroine, and Colony Collapse. It’s a night showcasing local rock bands and female vocalists in particular. The Anchor is a five-piece metalcore band based in our very own Denver, Colorado. They play original music that aims to uplift audiences and promote the value of self-worth. Their album, Breathe, just dropped, and next weekend is your... Read More

Ryan Montbleau Band and Grayson Erhard at Globe Hall

September 21st, 2019

Globe Hall is an awesome restaurant and music venue in RiNo. The historic red brick building has always been home to various taverns and the like. In 2015, Globe Hall moved in and began selling out shows, hosting a huge variety of touring and local acts. The well-worn bar has as much character as the bands that take the stage and the award winning Texas-style BBQ goes great with the cheap drinks. Saturday, September 28th, Globe Hall welcomes the Ryan Montbleau Band and Grayson Erhard. Montbleau began playing shows in his hometown of Boston in the early 2000s, quickly working his way up from coffee... Read More

Hellgrammites at Larimer Lounge

August 24th, 2019

Larimer Lounge is the place to be next Thursday night. They’re kicking the weekend off a day early with a show worth canceling your previous plans for. Anniversary dinner on your calendar? Bring your better half to the show. Aunt Karen’s birthday? There’s always next year. Job interview in the morning? Reschedule, they like it when you play hard to get. Whatever the case, I’ll see you there at 8. Headlining are Denver’s own Hellgrammites. The family-based band has spent the last 15 years perfecting a sound that dodges genres, blending elements of punk, hardcore, indie,... Read More

Lost Lake Weekend Lineup

August 10th, 2019

Lost Lake Lounge is one of Denver’s most beloved local bars. For nearly a decade it’s been a prime spot to see up and coming bands from all styles and genres. The lake house decorum works surprisingly well for the Colfax dive. Its small stage and limited floor space create an intimate setting, and every show is a close encounter. Friday, August 16th, Lost Lake welcomes Tommy Freed and the Sound. Their music is smooth, melodic, and soulful. Their debut album, Come on Shining, has roots in the blues, but branches out to include some indie and pop influences. Singer/songwriter Tommy Freed... Read More

The Yellow Rake’s 15th Anniversary Party

August 3rd, 2019

Next weekend, Hi-Dive is hosting The Yellow Rake’s 15th Anniversary Party. Good news—you’re invited! The celebration starts at 8:00 and includes performances from four local bands that you will absolutely want to tell everyone at the office about on Monday. SPELLS is a five-member punk band hailing from “The Queen City of the Plains.” Let’s just take a second to appreciate the fact that Denver got dibs on that one before Omaha. SPELLS released their debut EP, Take Time/Slice Away, in 2013. That was followed by an assortment of EPs, LPs, multiple “cassingles,” and a... Read More

Next Weekend at Globe Hall

July 20th, 2019

Next weekend is going to be huge for the Denver music scene in general. UMS is going to be insane, but that’s not all that’s going down. Maybe huge festivals aren’t really your jam. Maybe winding your way through ten thousand other concertgoers cramps your style. Totally understandable. If you’re looking to see some live music but avoid the South Broadway mayhem next weekend, Globe Hall has you covered. On Saturday, July 26th, Channel 93.3 presents The Mowgli’s, Petal, and Arms Akimbo on their Summer Vacation Tour. The Mowgli’s began in 2010 in L.A. They hit... Read More

Friday Night at the Lion’s Lair

I don’t know about you, but I love a little metal in my weekend. A cold beer and some face melting guitar solos just make everything seem right with the world. When I see a big bearded dude with a gauged septum ring happily headbanging away in his natural environment, there’s only one word for it: Zen. Lucky for me and everyone else, there’s no shortage of live music in Denver. And if you’re looking for your metal fix next weekend, check out the Lion’s Lair. With its very affordable drinks and authentic Colfax atmosphere, the Lion’s Lair is a go-to for local... Read More

June 1st, 2019

Every year when I get my pass for the Westword Music Showcase, I have to take a deep breath and mentally prepare myself for the musical free-for-all I’m committing to. It’s a barrage of bands with a lineup that could easily last a weekend, unceremoniously crammed into a ten-hour window. The Showcase started in 1995 as a way to put Denver bands on the map, and for the last 25 years it’s been doing just that. The whole event is set up like a scavenger hunt for your favorite bands. Saturday June 29th, the Showcase hits the Golden Triangle with two giant outdoor stages and participating venues... Read More

3 Weekend Shows at The Lost Lake Lounge

April 6th, 2019

Lost Lake Lounge is a bar and music venue on East Colfax (the one your mother warned you about).  Almost every night of the week they host local and touring bands from a variety of genres. It has the feel of a fishing lodge mixed with an underground venue. I saw a Rowdy Shadehouse show there a few years back and the band handed out brown paper bags full of glitter. This place is an awesome local hangout, and it has earned a special place in the hearts of many. Their lineup for next weekend is, as always, exploding with talent. Friday April 12th they’re hosting Whiskey Autumn’s CD release... Read More

Spectra Art Space

April 21st, 2018

In the spirit of journalistic integrity, I have to admit I have a slightly biased opinion about this week’s location. I already knew how rad one of the owners was prior to writing this. But don’t let my conflict of interest dissuade you from checking out Spectra Art Space on South Broadway, it deserves all the praise I can bestow. I stopped in for the first time a few days ago and saw my friend Sadie Young, the mastermind behind the operation. Spectra opened just last year at 1836 S Broadway and its already well established. The entrance to the gallery opens up into a large main room. There... Read More
