Monday, May 22

Recommended: Jagwar Ma @ The Bluebird

This indie-psychedelic rock band is a perfect way to rid yourself of the Monday blues. The Australian band of three have gained attention since opening for The xx and Tame Impala. Jagwar Ma has released three studio albums their newest being Every Now & Zen which contains reprises and re-works of the songs “Ordinary,” “Slipping” and “Give Me a Reason” off their 2016 album Every Now & Then. By taking elements of shoegaze, psych-pop and indie-alternative, the band has created a sound all their own. Catch these Aussie heartthrobs this Monday at the Bluebird.

Singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton is set to play two sold-out nights at Red Rocks. Born in Kentucky, Stapleton is no novice to the country-blues scene.

One of Japan’s most popular rock bands is headed to the Bluebird this Wednesday. Formed in 2008, the band has released five studio albums with their most recent released April of this year.

Known for their intriguing stage production and unfaltering vitality while performing, the two have pushed past the norm of hard and alternative rock.

Recommended: Cool Ghouls with The Kinky Fingers and Last of the Easy Riders @ The Hi-Dive

Based in San Francisco, California, this band of four is bringing west coast vibes to the Hi-Dive this Thursday. Though rock & roll is their main genre, their music also consists of a laid back and wavy sound that teeters on the edge of indie-rock. Their influences consist of tall cans, 40s, blunts, parties and crime.

Friday, May 26

Recommended: Jethro Tull by Ian Anderson with the Colorado Symphony @ Red Rocks

These Britain-born rock legends are headlining Red Rocks this Friday. During the late 60’s and early 70’s, mixing hard rock, folk and blues was unique in that era of time. And in 1968 the band opened for Pink Floyd, which allowed traction to continue building their loyal fan base throughout the decades. They were scrutinized at first because of their crude lyrics, but despite critic’s negative feedback, the band proved their worth. Jethro Tull has five platinum and eleven gold records, which speaks for the band’s success. Some of their greatest hits include “Locomotive Breath,” “Living in the Past,” “Bungle in the Jungle” and “Hunting Girl.” To experience one of rock’s most appraised musicians, head to Red Rocks this Friday night.

Saturday, May 27

Recommended: Malaa with Action 52 and Kases @ The Gothic

One of house music’s newest and upcoming artists is set to headline the Gothic this Saturday. First gaining traction in 2015, there is still not much known about the mysterious producer. He (or she) wears a ski mask on stage and keeps a low-profile internet presence. But the enigmatic figure caught the attention of EDM listeners when Major Lazer released a remix featuring Malaa. There is speculation that Tchami and DJ Snake have a hand in the mystery behind the masked house musician, though that is still unknown. Despite the perplexing details, Malaa puts on a show that EDM, house and electronic fans can all get down to and appreciate.

Recommended: Odesza with FKJ, Tennyson and Pomo @ Red Rocks *sold out

The Seattle electronic duo that most of us know and love is back in Denver. Now mainstream, the pair have reached new heights by gaining a tremendously loyal fan base that consists of veteran and novice electronic listeners alike. The two have released little music since the release of their 2014 album In Return, but on April 26 of this year, they gave us a taste of what we’ve all been waiting for. By dropping two singles, Odesza fan’s are reinvigorated as the anticipation and hope for more increases. Catch night two of Odesza this Sunday at Red Rocks.
