Top-notch local music, affordable tickets and a five-dollar ‘Fuck Yeah’ whiskey shot/PBR deal. It seems like tonight’s Dendrite’s with Calder’s Revolvers show at Herman’s Hideaway is truly a hard deal to beat.
The Dendrites are a ten-piece instrumental reggae ska band who boast plenty of funky horns and boogey-worthy tracks. Calder’s Revolvers, on the other hand, is a rock, blues, soul blend complete with a bad-ass lead singer. These two are hailed among Denver’s top local bands and both have been playing together long enough to have developed tight sets, plenty of original songs and a knack for putting on a good party.
2013 saw an emergence of new material for both groups, with The Dendrites new record Fly Casual, and Calder’s Revolver’s putting out Steady By Your Side. So this year is prime time to catch a set from these two.
In addition to the two headliners, three other Denver originals also appear on the bill. Hi-fi Gentry will play first, followed by Knocean–a roots reggae group–with the Denver Vintage Reggae Society at the helm, spinning classic reggae tunes in-between sets.
General admission for the show is $12, but if you use the door code “Denver ska”, you should be able to get in for $7. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at Herman’s Hideaway’s website. The show is restricted to 21 and over, with doors opening at 7 p.m. and music starting at 8 p.m.
Ladies, this isn’t the show to wear your tallest heels to, because once those bands hit the stage, you are going to to want to hit the dance floor. You have been fairly warned.
