Bethany Cosentino’s band, Best Coast, reached critic notoriety with their 2010 album, Crazy for You, and their newest album release, California Nights, revamps their beach vibes and nostalgic 50s and 60s tunes. Heavy on electric riffs and pounding drum beats, this group will have you wishing for summery beach days and go-go boots to dance in. Let us also not forget about Consentino’s strong voice that can attract both grit and beauty.

Twenty One Pilots @ Red Rocks

Tickets: Sold Out

Doors Open: 7:00 PM

Twenty One Pilots kicked into gear this past year and truly made a name for themselves in the art world. They will be playing at Red Rocks with Echosmith and Finish Ticket, and the performance will be high-energy and musical, as all groups focus on being instrumentalists first and performers second. And just because it is sold out, doesn’t mean you can’t find a way to see this rock alternative and hip-hop infused duo.
