As the weather starts to heat up, outdoor weekend festivals seem inevitable. But don’t worry, we found plenty of shows indoors under low-slung ceilings for those of you that prefer your music less festive. This week’s Get Down is brimming with something for everyone. Check it out!
Tuesday, June 9
Los Cripis @ Rhinoceroplis
Buenos Aires band, Los Cripis, continue their tour across the U.S. by gracing the stage of the Rhinoceropolis on June 9th. A band that calls themselves “simple and primitive, no pedals or effects, but full of saturation, melodies, freshness, d.i.y. spirit and color,” Los Cripis bring grainy guitars and cut off shorts to a venue that is entirely suiting.
Tickets are donation based.

Nneka & Povi Tamu @ Lost Lake
In support of her newest album, My Fairy Tales, Nigerian soul singer Nneka hits the Lost Lake along with Denver’s own Povi Tamu. Together, these two ladies will provide a performance of powerful female vocals worthy of night-long sultry hip swaying.
Tickets are $15
D’Angelo @ The Ogden Theater
Bringing ‘90s R&B back to the Ogden is none other than D’Angelo, the king of sappy, overtly sexual lyrics and greased up abs. One can only hope that nothing has changes since ’95, a year when D’Angelo rocked baggy jeans with no shirt and cooed, “You’re my laaaady.” Then the pricey tickets might be worth it.
Tickets are $82.50
Friday, June 12
Summer Jam @ Fiddler’s Green
This time each year, heaps of hip-hop lovers flock to Fiddler’s Green for the annual KS 107.5 Summer Jam. This year’s line up includes rap names such as Tech N9ne, Trey Songz, Kid Ink and, as always, a lot of puffing and passing.
Tickets range from $29.50-$125.50
Saturday, June 13
LoHi Music Festival
On Saturday, 32nd Street will house two stages for Denver’s LoHi music festival. The line-up includes The Infamous Stringdusters and Hot Buttered Rum and, as any good little festival should, an after party at Cervantes.
Tickets range from $35-$161
The Cave Singers @ Larimer Lounge
Back in 2007 a little indie band called The Cave Singers put out a catchy tune that all the hip kids loved called “Dancing On Our Graves.” Well, that little indie band still goes on a tour every once in a while, to little indie venues like the Larimer Lounge, where they will play on the 13th.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 at the door.
