Week three of April will not disappoint in terms of Denver concerts. All week long we have music from every corner of the genre spectrum listed for you to see.

Monday, April 17

Recommended – Thursday with Touche Amore, Basement and City Aviv @ Summit Music Hall

Formed in 1997, the New Jersey post-hardcore band of four made their debut in 1999 with its album Waiting. While taking several years to work on new music, the band was signed to New York’s Eyeball Records and proceeded to release its second album Full Collapse in 2001. The band gained traction after touring with Boy Sets Fire, which helped gained momentum for the EP and earned a spot on Billboard’s Top 200. Through the early years of 2000, Thursday toured numerous festivals such as Coachella and Vans Warped Tour. Though disbanding in 2013, the now re-energized group announced in March 2016 that they were reuniting and back out on tour.

Recommended – NE-HI with American Culture and Slynger @ The Hi-Dive

With its newly released album Offers, the Chicago-based band of four set its sights on their 2017 tour. Back in 2014, the band gained popularity and a devoted following when it toured their first self-titled album alongside artists Twin Peaks and Car Seat Headrest. The indie-rock band enamors their audience through dreamy vocals, catchy tunes and an energetic D.I.Y.-like stage presence.

Recommended – Method Man & Redman with Flatbush Zombies, Curren$y and More @ Red Rocks

Red Rocks begins it’s 2017 season with the Wu-Tang/Def Squad MC duo for an amphitheater-sized pre-420 event. Known for their “fuck you” personalities, the pair is also known for throwing intensely energetic shows. Since the release of its first album Blackout! in 1999, the duo has had an incredible two-decade long career, and seemingly has no plans to stop. Though this is a day prior to 420, it’s never too early to party.

Thursday, April 20

Recommended – Gucci Mane @ The Ogden

May 2016 marked the end of Gucci Mane’s two year stint in an Indiana Federal penitentiary. With his newfound outlook on life and ambition in the industry, Gucci has released several albums, one of which was dropped only months post-incarceration. He’s since collaborated with artists such as Travis Scott, Young Thug, Drake and Kanye – and his feature on Rae Sremmurd’s hit track “Black Beatles” earned him his first Billboard number one single. This is Gucci Mane’s Denver debut so if you’re hoping for a decent view of the stage, I’d plan ahead to arrive early.

Recommended – Thievery Corporation @ The Fillmore

With two decades under its belt, the Washington D.C.-based duo is no novices when it comes to producing. Thievery Corporation released several popular singles in 1996, which eventually helped them gain a loyal following. After years of mixing, remixing and collaborating with other artists of the same caliber, Rob Garza and Eric Hilton have become staples in the chill-wave, dub and trip-hop realm. Though tough to pinpoint, the pair have made the melting-pot of genres its forte. Come see these veteran producers this Friday at the Fillmore.

Recommended – Snoop Dogg / Wiz Khalifa with Cypress Hill @ Red Rocks

Hailing from Long Beach, California, Snoop Dogg is one of the most successful rappers in the industry. Under Dr. Dre’s wing, Snoop released his first album Doggystyle, which became the first ever debut album to list as number one. After several years of legal battles, Snoop proceeded to rehabilitate his image and focus on his music including popular albums Tha Doggfather and Not Limit Top Dogg. With almost two-and-a-half decades in the industry Snoop has made himself a cultural icon. His resume consists of collaborations with artists like Swizz Beats, Ice Cube, Stevie Wonder and Justin Timberlake, alongside an incredibly long list of other artists. Though known for his lackadaisical/gangster persona, Snoop Dogg never ceases to entertain an audience. Even after years on the stage, he has yet to diminish in liveliness. Come end your week with the West Coast legend this Sunday at Red Rocks.
