The doors will open at 8:30, but get there early, the price is low at just $12.00, and it can get tight in there.

The Roots at the Ogden Theater
The legendary Roots crew will be getting funky as ever at The Ogden on Sunday. The jazz infused hip hop group will be taking a break from their regular gig on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to send all 8 active members to get down Denver style.
